Installation problems with Extension Manager

Please follow below steps to troubleshoot your problems:

  1. Check if you have installed multiple versions of Extension Manager.

    If you have installed multiple versions of Extension Manager on your computer, please make sure to launch the correct version of Extension Manager that matches the version of Photoshop/Illustrator when you are trying to install our software. We recommend you to manually open the Extension Manager, and browse the .zxp package to install, rather than double click the installer file.

    For Windows users, you simply right-click the Adobe Extension Manager icon and select Run as Administrator.
