You can install prevoius drives. Just change the OSX version to 10.11.5

Code:
sudo nano /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
In this plist file change "ProductBuildVersion" to "15F34" which is 10.11.5 and install the drivers for this version.

I'm getting the same issue here.. Everytime I open Adobe anything, the system crashes and reboots!! Any ideas yet? I'm thinking of removing el capitan and going back to yosemite
I will check when I get home this evening but I updated yesterday and didn't have any issues I remember with Adobe apps, although I might have only been using Dreamweaver last night.

UPDATE: Just used Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.1.2 for a while without any issues.

This can have adverse effects as it will effect the entire system and any other apps that might be checking the version of OS X installed, namely some Apple apps. You are better off modifying the NVDAStartup.kext.

For those with a returning black screen, verify you didn't fix it last update buy editing plist's (replacing Config2 with none) as this has been overridden after the update.

Hi,
I use a GTX 980 inside a genuine Mac Pro 3,1 and Adobe video apps ( Premiere, After effects, Media Encoder ) crash the system at start when they try to load the media core. Photoshop works fine for me too.
Do you think I could tweak a kext on a my Mac to roll back to the previous Nvidia webdriver? When I updated to 10.11.6 the system said it was not compatible but I guess it is a casual task in the hackintosh world to make the system believe something else. Thanks for your help.

How can I edit that file? I need to try to force the old driver (if its possible), because I need to use AE :/
I have a 970 MSI Windforce

This is the solution from Adobe

What version of Premiere are you running? I just opened up a project in Premiere Pro 2015.2 and didn't have any issues. I have not updated to 2105.3 yet so that might be the difference.

When I opened the latest Premier Pro on my machine, both screens immediately went black and the computer rebooted.

I removed the Metal folder as instructed by Adobe, and everything is fine now.
