as with many others I have tried to install my copy of CS5 with apples Mojave and have come into difficulty.
I recently purchased a 2017 MacBook Pro (secondhand) due to my 2012 MacBook Pro mysteriously dying a death (can't find a solution to fix it, so its essentially an expensive paperweight), and to my horror I discovered that I may not be able to use my version of photoshop with the current version of the operating system.
After a fair bit of time with the tech support people on Adobe and reading the many different forums, seeing the issues others have encountered, I'm down to a small issue and hopefully someone of you out there can help resolve it for me:
I have installed photoshop CS5 on my MacBook, it opens and is fully functional - to a point. I can adjust images, add in the IPTC data etc, but when I click "ok" to save the IPTC data, photoshop crashes, I believe its a segmentation fault - which means there's some issue with the coding -at a guess missing old out of date drivers, so I'm close to having it operational, I just can't seem to find out what needs to be adjusted to fix it.
Also, Adobe Updater keeps telling me that some updates can't be installed - I have installed some of them manually via terminal but it hasn't resolved my problem.
Below is a crash report that I receive after I click "ok" after adding text(IPTC data) to a file.

Many thanks in advance for any assistance in understanding the problem or getting a work around, the character count per post limits how much of the crash log I could post.
