Install your software
Before you install, close all applications currently running on your system—including other Adobe applications, Microsoft Office applications, and browser windows. It is also recommended to temporarily turn off virus protection during the installation process. Make sure you have administrative privileges or can validate as an administrator. If you are installing as an upgrade, the installer will check your system to find the valid upgrade product. If it cannot find it, the system will prompt you to input the serial number of the product being upgraded. You can also install the software in trial, then input your new and previous serial numbers in the serialization screen shown during launch. 1. Do one of the following: o Windows: Insert the DVD in your computer, and follow the on-screen instructions. If the installer does not launch automatically, navigate to the Adobe Illustrator CS5.1 folder found at the root level on the DVD and double-click Set-up.exe to start the installation process. If you downloaded the software from the web, the installer will self-extract and launch automatically. If the installer does not launch automatically, open the folder, navigate to the Adobe Illustrator CS5.1\Illustrator\ Adobe Illustrator CS5.1 folder, double-click Setup.exe, and then follow the on-screen instructions. o Mac: Insert the DVD in your computer, navigate to the application folder found at the root level on your disk, double-click Install.app, and then follow the on-screen instructions. If you downloaded the software from the web, open the folder, navigate to the /Volumes/Adobe Illustrator CS5.1/Adobe Illustrator CS5.1 folder, double-click Install.app, and then follow the on-screen instructions. When prompted to enter a serial number, enter your Illustrator CS 5.1 serial number and complete the installation.
If you are installing Illustrator CS 5.1 Subscription Edition software, you will need to be connected to the Internet. The installer will prompt you if it detects that you are offline. An Adobe ID is required to purchase a subscription. If for some reason, you cannot connect to the Internet, you can install the trial version of the software and input your subscription serial number and Adobe ID during installation. Please note that if you associated the serial number with an Adobe ID during purchase, you will need to enter the same Adobe ID. For more information...
