    I am using
    * Photoshop CC 2017
    * OS XYosemite

    I had Kwik 3 installed and I deleted it and tried to install Kwik 4.

    I receive an error when trying to install the Adobe Extension Manager that says, “The extension can not be installed, it requires Photoshop version 15 or greater.

    Can someone provide a solution?

    Thank you.

    Since CC 2015, Adobe Extension Manager is not available https://www.adobeexchange.com/resources/28
    you may use ZXPInstaller instead of Adobe Extension Manager

    Thank you for your reply. I still receive the same error message “The extension can not be installed, it requires Photoshop version 15 or greater.” I have Adobe Photoshop CC 2017.

    Is Kwik compatible with CC 2017.

    Please help. . . . .

    Kwik4 is working well with CC2017 but there seems a problem left.

    Hello sir.

    I’m using CC 2018
    I have downloaded X code
    I have donwnloaded Corona
    I have downloaded ZXPInstaller
    I have downloaded Kwik 4
    I also tried the steps recommended in your post prior to this one as noted below . . .

    djs-Mac-mini:~ djthomas$ ./Contents/MacOS/ExManCmd –install {PATH}kwikj.zxp
    -bash: ./Contents/MacOS/ExManCmd: No such file or directory
    djs-Mac-mini:~ djthomas$ ./Contents/MacOS/ExManCmd –list all
    -bash: ./Contents/MacOS/ExManCmd: No such file or directory
    djs-Mac-mini:~ djthomas$ ./Contents/MacOS/ExManCmd –remove Kwik
    -bash: ./Contents/MacOS/ExManCmd: No such file or directory

    When I downloaded Kwik 4 I received a message that says “Could not complete your request because Photoshop does not recognize this type of file.”

    Should I set the Kwik file to “Open With” Photoshop CC 2018 or some other software?

    Thank you for your help. I you could please provide steps in order (Step 1, Step 2, Step 3 etc. I would appreciate it)

    Thank you.

    are you using the latest update of Kwik4? here it is.

    http://kwiksher.com/daily/Kwik4_2017_1127.zip

    On Terminal app, you need to copy&paste the following command for CC2018

    defaults write com.adobe.CSXS.8 PlayerDebugMode 1

    I downloaded the latest version you provided me and pasted the this into my terminal com.adobe.CSXS.8 PlayerDebugMode 1

    and I received the same error message “Could not complete your request because Photoshop does not recognize this type of file.

    Should I set the Kwik file to “Open With” Photoshop CC 2018 or some other software?

    which step does Photoshop show the message?

    Installing Kwik with ZXPInstaller? Or Opening Kwik from Window > Extensions > Kwik4?

    Kwik4 is working well on CC2018 both Win/Mac of mine. If it is installed, it will be at

    /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/com.kwiksher.kwik4

    When I click on the Kwik 4 file to download it, Photoshop opens up and then gives me the error. I don’t have the file location /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/com.kwiksher.kwik4 on my computer.

    I really want to get Kwik to work and I’m disappointed with this process.

    Thank you for your previous and continued help.

    What should I do?

    When I first tried to open the Kwik4 download I received a prompt that asked which program did I want to use to open up Kwik. I selected Photoshop. This is why I asked twice in this thread should I designate Kwik to open up with some other program but I did not see a response.

    Thank you.

    > a prompt that asked which program did I want to use to open up Kwik. I selected Photoshop.

    OSX or Browser’ prompt? If is it asking Kwik.zip or kwik.zxp to open with a program on Mac, you don’t need to select it. Just cancel and ignore the message.

    Kwik installer file is in Kwik.zip you downloaded. You need to uncompress the zip file.

    You find Kwik4.zxp file. It is the file you open with ZXPInstaller.
