    I have CS3 that has Camera Raw 4.0 on it. Now, my cousin also has a copy of CS3 that has CR 4.6 on it. which he said he updated to by going to the "Help" menu and clicking on the "updates" menu. Now, when I try to do this, the "updates" menu is "greyed" out, not letting me click on it, hence not being able to get the updates.

    So, I went to the Adobe site and found the CR 4.6 update, tried to download it and upzip it. I clicked on the file and PS opened, but then said it couldn't open the file as it was "the wrong type of file".....!!!

    Does anyone know why I can't update through CS3 itself and why won't it accept the legit downloads from Adobe themselves?

    The copy is completely legit, so I am hoping its nothing to do with the computer or CS3 itself. Any help on this would be great. Its doing my head in! Smile

    Cheers!

    If you just open CS3 and immediately click on Help the Updates option is greyed out; however if you open CS3, then click once in the workspace and then click on Help you should find that the Updates option is active.

    Hope that helps Smile

    It can be updated manually. In Windows it's just a case of moving the downloaded file "Camera Raw.8bi" into the correct folder to replace the old one. Full instructions on the Adobe website.

    HI Ben,

    When you say "workspace" do you mean the blank grey screen that you have in front of you when you first open PS up? Because I tried what you said (if that is the case) and its still greyed out! Most confusing....

    Hmmmm.....Ok, I looked at all the instructions that were there when I went to the download page and couldn't see this. I shall have another look and see what I can find.....thanks!

    Yes the big grey bit. I've tried it myself just now and it worked. Try Henchard's method if that didnt work!

    Hmmmm tried it again on mine and didn't do anything. But done Henchards method and worked brilliantly! But thanks for your advice all the same. Not sure why it didn't work, but all info is appreciated! Cheers!
