Speed up Adobe CS5 apps launch
After I installed OS X Lion for testing purposes, I had a repeated dialog window asking me to « install Java for CS5ServiceManager to work » : each time I opened a session on my Mac and each time I launched an app from Adobe. Java ? I know Java is quite slow to launch so I had to disable this service.
Now the Adobe apps I work with do load much faster. Simply rename the file
CS5ServiceManager to something like
CS5ServiceManager.bak and it won’t be loaded anymore. You can find the related file in this folder :
- Mac OS X :
- Windows :
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\CS5ServiceManager
CS5ServiceManager is *at least* responsible for the « CS Live » features, so be sure to not delete it as you may need it back.
