Deregistering from a computer I no longer have access to

I have an old copy of CS5.5 from when I was in college that I'm looking to set up on my main PC. Unfortunately, the serial number I have is registered to two computers that I no longer have access to.

I can log out of my subscription based software, but I have no way to deregister the serial number of 5.5 from older computers.

Any ideas?

there's no way to regain an activation count without those computers. there's no work-around/alternative/plan b/all other synonyms.

@KnightfallMedia,

If you used up your original activations, your only recourse now is to replace with modern software.

Besides, CS5x is nearly 15 years old and was never certified to run on modern computers.

Thanks for the info. Sounds like I'll move over to Affinity and some other options then.
