Installation cannot continue as the installer file may be damaged. How to Solve? ADOBE MAC OS

Today I am going to show you a problem coming with Adobe DMG files, showing an error during installation. This installation error is coming in macOS Catalina and macOS Big Sur generally, it may occur in macOS Mojave, Sierra, or High Sierra.

  It’s showing an installation error now while trying to install Adobe Photoshop and clicking on install.php 

it shows that the installation cannot continue as the installer file may be damaged and download the installer file again.

 Don’t worry I am showing you how to fix this problem just first of all check your internet connection or Wi-Fi is off.

How to open Package Content.

Now right-click the Install.php file and select ‘show package content’, as shown above, picture. It will open a folder named ‘ Content’. Open it now go to the Mac OS folder, double click on install (Terminal Command) it will ask for your password, enter your password. 

Open the Terminal exec file right clicking if now works with double click.

Security and Privacy Fix in System Prefrences.

Here once again the error window will appear not the same as before, it says “AdobePIM.dylib. error ‘cannot start the installation’  now don’t worry go to the System Preference clicking Open windows and select the Security and Privacy tab, Unlock it by entering your password and click the ‘Allow Anyway’ button. 

You will see the installation Process started successfully.

 Now one thing keeps in mind please don’t close the Terminal window while installation otherwise the installation will close or terminate.  You can turn on WIFI  or internet connection. 

Here the installation is completely done by the installer. You can try this method in each and every Adobe DMG file, like Adobe Photoshop 2021, Adobe Premiere  Pro,  Adobe After Effect, or Adobe illustrator.
