I have trouble accessing a product I purchased, what should I do?

I received an Adobe program error message, what should I do?
The precise cause of a program error usually lies in your software presets being different from those of the file you are trying to open, for instance when you are using a Middle Eastern text engine while the file you are trying to open uses an East-Asian one. You can try and reset those presets by opening Photoshop, then search for ‘Photoshop’ (in the top left corner) > ‘Preferences’ > ‘General...’ and finally select the ‘Reset Preferences On Quit’ button. This will reset all preferences to the standard Photoshop presets after restarting Adobe Photoshop.

Is Adobe software required to adjust a product I purchased?

Which software version is required in order to use a template?
It depends on the product which software version is required. Adobe Photoshop products need Adobe Photoshop CS4 or a more recent version. As far as the printable products are concerned, every download contains IDML files which are compatible with Adobe InDesign CS4 and above.
