Default Photoshop CS2 and Olympus RAW?

Well I have never been a photoshop user due to cost but Adobe has decided to give version CS2 away for free so that led me to download it.

So I got it downloaded and installed and all but then wanted to get support for my Olympus raw files. So I downloaded the adobe camera raw plugin and followed instructions placing it in the plugin folder, but still no dice.

Any pointers on what I am doing wrong?
in my bag: e-m1, 7-14mm pro, 14-54mm mk ii, 50-200mm mk i, 70-300mm
in my pocket: e-pm2 lumix 12-32

The various versions of ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) available to various versions of Photoshop are different. There's a very good possibility that your camera is newer than what ACR that goes with CS2 supports.

But all is not lost - download the latest version of the Adobe program that converts raw files to dng format, then convert your files. It will save as new files, not replace your old ones. Then you can use the version of ACR for CS2. My personal experience with using both the native raw file format and dng is that they are the same as far as quality. I've used this method more than once, when I got a new camera that Adobe didn't have supported yet.
