    Hi. I'm needing photoshop and have expired my trial period. I'm having NO luck finding a serial, and every-time I download a kegen or some already unlocked version I always get a virus, so no thanks.

    How can I just download another trial version of CS6, with a new account and run a trial version again?

    I do this, and even though I remove PS from my mac, it remembers I've already gone through the trial period on my computer.

    So my question is, how do I remove this 'memory', so I can download CS6 again and do a trial.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I'm not quite sure what I'm to put in 'ApplicationName', as photoshop, or the name of PS in my applications 'Adobe Photoshop CS6' doesn't do anything. In addition, opening CS6 doesn't prompt me saying my trial has expired, just comes up with advertisements for adobe cloud until I select to login.

    Any info on finding this file without using terminal?

    It should be 'Adobe Photoshop CS6'

    What do you mean "it doesn't do anything?"...and why does it ask you to log in? On my Mac, if I use the Terminal to run opensnoop (as per the instructions in the image), and then start Photoshop, I get hundreds of lines diplaying every file it's accessing to start up. I have never been asked to "login" to run Photoshop...do you have some sort of web-based version???

    Alternatively, if still stuck, take a look at this thread (explains the popups issue), and then use the method in post number 12 to try and clear remains of CS6 to be able to reinstall from scratch:

    cs6 behaves quite differently. It's not just about the serial. Did you modify the hosts file?

    Install it in a virtual machine, then when the 30 day trial is up just revert back to the original version and install it in the VM again.

    Not sure how a Mac application phones home but in Windows you need to update the hosts.ini file to stop the app from phoning home.

    I never used a Mac but Google is a wonderful tool: Editing the hosts file in Mac OS X ? Leopard, is a pretty easy task, especially if you are familiar with the terminal.

    Step 1 ? Open the Terminal.app

    Either by start typing Terminal on the Spotlight, or by going into Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal.

    Step 2 ? Open the hosts file

    Open the hosts by typing on the Terminal that you have just opened:

    1
    $ sudo nano /private/etc/hosts
    Type your user password when prompted.

    Step 3 ? Edit the hosts file

    The hosts file contains some comments (lines starting with the # symbol), as well as some default hostname mappings (e.g. 127.0.0.1 ? localhost).
    Simply append your new mappings underneath the default ones. Or edit one of the default values if you know what you are doing!
    You can navigate the file using the arrow keys.

    Step 4 ? Save the hosts file

    When done editing the hosts file, press control-o to save the file.
    Press enter on the filename prompt, and control-x to exit the editor.

    Step 5 ? Flush the DNS cache

    On Leopard you can issue a simple Terminal command to flush the DNS cache, and have your host file changes to take immediate effect:

    1
    $ dscacheutil -flushcache
    You can now test your new mapping on the browser!
