    There is a possibility that Photoshop CS5 is incompatible with the Windows 7 operating system because of which you are encountering the Exit Code: 6 in Photoshop CS5 trial install. There is no need to worry.

    Go to the official site of Adobe and check out if the support for this software is available for Windows 7 or not. If it is available, then check out the system requirements of this software. If it does not match your computer configuration, then this is what is causing the problem.

    A similar issue was encountered in my system with the trial version install of Photoshop CS5 in my system. The progress of the setup used to stop at 20%. The issue is that the setup of the software that you are having is corrupt. You will have to download a new copy of this same software and then, try doing the installation. I hope that your situation will be fixed after that.

    It is always recommended that one must not use the trial version of any softwares or applications, since there are bugs. I suppose this is the same reason why you are facing a Exit Code: 6 in Photoshop CS5 trial install. So, the only solution that can be used, according to me, is to download the full version of Photoshop CS5. I have not seen people facing any issues with this full version.

    Many-a-times, the installation of various softwares are blocked in the Windows 7 operating system because of just a security feature. Well, the run as administrator is an option that forces to get rid of such blockages. So, I recommend you to right-click on the setup of this software and then, use the above mentioned option to force this setup to start.

To my surprise, the installation started and I am using it without any issues in Windows 7.
