A common issue with our Production Premium Suite installs since CS4 has been that Encore is missing its templates and other Adobe provided content.  It is a problem in the wild too, however the resolutions from Adobe and others don't seem to apply to our site license installation.  We suspect it may have to do with the downloadable Production Premium installers from the Volume Licensing Site verses consumer downloads of Premiere Pro (part of Adobe's suggested solution) or the install disks themselves.  The Library install is multiple gigabytes so perhaps it is left out of an already massive Production Premium download for the enterprise. Whatever the reason, the fix is simple.

It merely requires the copying of the necessary Library folder to the following paths:

Windows:  C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Encore CS5

Macintosh: /Applications/Adobe Encore CS5/

The Encore Library folder can be obtained in the College's software share under \software\Adobe\Old Adobe Software\Adobe CS5\FixEncoreMissingContent

Copy the "Library" folder to the following spot>

Applications/Adobe Encore CS6

See this example on the left> "Library"

Then give full Read/Write to the library folder for


Link Encore with library content

Do one of the following:

  • Depending upon your operating system, copy the Library, main, Styles, and Template folders from the folder containing the extracted library content to the appropriate location:

    • Mac OS: Applications/Adobe Encore CS6/
  • Launch Encore and link the library to the location where you extracted the library content:

    • Windows: Select Edit > Preferences > Media. Browse to the Library folder of the extracted library content and then click Ok.
