HELP installing on Mac / Sierra OS / Adobe CC« Back to Questions List

Hi I am unable to get past downloading and opening the Lightening Storm_cc2015.zip folder. I have opened it on my desktop, but beyond that the video only shows how to on a mac.

There is no further prompt to choose an "export location". There is no instruction on where/how to copy & paste the path url. And also this on another thread:

NOTE: if you are using Adobe CC, then your must first register your IP Address here: //exportkit.com/lightning-storm-cc.

also, with no instruction on where/how to do so. HELP!

Hi,

Creating the CEP folder is normal, and you should also crate the extensions folder as well. Answer the following questions so we can know what steps you require:

1. Did you download WinZip or WinRar?
2. Can you find your Terminal?  If not, open your Applications folder, then open the Utilities folder and you will see Terminal.
3. What is the exact path you created your CEP folder in?

hi, could you provide a screen capture or video (from a mac) of how

’Once you have your extractor, you can simply cut and paste the path below. If you have admin rights on your computer, then you the extractor will create the path if necessary and you are good to go.”

because I am not able to replicate this. I had to CREATE the CEP folder within Adobe – it did not exist prior.

Hi,

Please re-paste the text. Once you have your extractor, you can simply cut and paste the path below. If you have admin rights on your computer, then you the extractor will create the path if necessary and you are good to go.

Correct Answer

Hi,

This is actually very easy to do. Visit our Installation page and you will find instructions for MAC.

Use an Extractor

The main thing is to use WinZip or WinRar to avoid conflict then extract to the MAC location ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/LightningStorm_CC2015/.

Manual MAC Install

  1. Find the LightningStorm_CC2015.zip file in the Finder, copy the file.
  2. Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/, paste the LightingStorm_CC2015.zip file. (Create the CEP/extensions path if required)
  3. On OS X, open your Applications folder, then open the Utilities folder. Open the Terminal application, at the command line type ”unzip ” followed by a space.
  4. Drag and drop the .cpgz or .zip file into the terminal window and hit enter.
The "register IP" message is a legacy post for our initial testers before the beta launch.
