Just updated to Ps Cs6, need to update Cam Raw to v8.3
« on: November 25, 2014, 11:10:07 PM »

I tried to update and had problems that required reinstall of Ps Cs6 upgrade on WinXP SP3. Seems I have 3 options and seems prudent to ask before I leap:
1. Use Ps updater mechanism. Last attempt this approach did not show updated ACR in Ps Plugins.
2. Download CameraRaw/DNG package from Adobe and install. Last time I tried this I could see DNG Converter but ACR did not show update.
3. Download and unzip just the v8.3 CameraRaw.8bi file, rename/move old one and put new file in proper location. I have this file ready.

Currently, I simply need to work on my Canon 6D files. I use older lenses so calibration is not primary. I have a pending assignment and need to be functional asap.

Which approach is tested and proven to allow me to view Canon 6D raw files in Bridge and open Camera Raw?

I don't think your first option will work because it will want to install ACR 8.7 but won't be able to since you are on XP
Option 2 should work, there may be something else wrong with your set-up
Option 3 has always worked for me when others had issues as long as Adobe makes a IP version with the CameraRaw.8bi file available for the last version that is supported but XP which I think you are correct in stating is 8.3

With the help of Adobe's "install team" and a 1½ hour intensive phone consult (that required renaming and removing some files, then literally reinstalling the installer), I was able to upgrade to PS CS6 (non-CC) and update Camera Raw to open my Canon 6D files. Yay! (Win XP SP3 32-bit). My Camera Raw version is now v8.3 and it opens Canon 6D files in Windows XP SP3.

In looking ahead, I also bought components for a new PC build that is i5-4690K, 16GB 1866 ram, RAID-1 for boot and another RAID-1 for data. I have a dedicated SSD for PS scratch and Windows pagefile. It is running and I am loading software. No smoke yet :)

Looking forward to a big year, and getting retooled!

Wishing you great light in the New Year!

Adobe's installers have always had a finicky side to them.  Good that it's working.

Just in case, with this new hardware upgrade to windows 7 or above, (maybe you already did). XP time has come.

Sorry for hijacking this thread.

I have installed CS6, too and have updated my ACR to 8.3 but, every time when I open ACR, it says that it is a BETA version.
How can I install the full/non-Beta version of 8.3?

I am using OS 10.6.8 by the way.

Thank you so much.

10.10.2 is the latest OS. An update should fix your problem. Also Adobe has posted a notice that it will no longer support X86.
