Creative Suite 6 for Mac requires an Intel-compatible processor, with Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later. Installation on macOS 10.12 "Sierra" to 10.14 "Mojave" may require security adjustments.[2] CS6 is not installable on macOS 10.15 "Catalina"; it may be possible to pre-install on an older macOS and then update, though workarounds may be needed with varying results.[3] CS6 is confirmed not to work on macOS 11 "Big Sur" and later.[4]


Creative Suite 6 for Windows requires an Intel-compatible processor, with Windows XP with Service Pack 3 or later. Some video applications may require Windows 7 or later. It is known to install and run fine on Windows 10 and 11.[5]
