    Hello there,
    since Adobe CS6 for Mac can no longer be used or installed on Mac OS 10.15 (and later), I´m wondering if it´s possible to run CS6 for Windows on a Mac with Parallels. From my own experience I know CS6 still runs well under a native Windows 10 or even 11 machine, but would this work on recent Macs with a Parallels set up?

    I´m using Photoshop and Illustrator professionally and don´t want to be sucked into Adobe´s Creative Cloud, but would like to be able to still use Macs.

    Any feedback is much appreciated!

    Hello, You can download a Parallels Desktop trial using this link: and test if the application is working inside Parallels Desktop. Thanks.

    Hi, Adobe Creative Cloud is not yet supported on ARM Windows. Please refer to this link to check Adobe Software supported on ARM based Windows
    However, if you're running a Mac with Intel chip you can very well use Adobe Creative Cloud on Windows 11 or Windows 10 with Parallels Desktop for Mac.
