run Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 with MacOSX case sensitive filesystem

1. Install to case insensitive OS first and activate it to run
2. create dmg formatted and mounted as case insensitive. Copy files installed to /Applications of the mounted dmg
3. copy files under /Library/Application Support, /Library/Preferences and /Applications/Utilities to target case sensitive OS
4. transfer the dmg created in step 2 above to target OS and mounted there. Run the application from the mounted dmg which will fail
5. download Adobe license fixing dmg from Adobe and run to fix the application in step 4
