Kept my CC subscription - Now Mac is telling me my Creative suite CS6 will expire

Recently I was going to cancel my Adobe creative cloud subscription and changed my mind at the last minute when they offered me a good deal.
When I went back to my computer to work the creative cloud apps work fine, but I still use creative suite CS6 apps as well.
This is because certain customers demand that I work in these programs.
Now when I start some of those programs I get a message that says my subscription will expire in so many days.
This message comes up in an application called creative cloud but it is not the creative cloud as most people know it.
It is some really old application that I've never seen because I use this one time purchase product that had nothing to do with a subscription.
I am very concerned that this software will stop working as the message tells me it will be cancelled and so many days.
I have customers that I need to use this for!
Help Please.

Thanks for info.In my case I was able to use both CS6 and CC apps for years without CS6 apps being recoginized by CC and put in the list of my apps. When I accepted the "deal" Adobe told me they would cancel my account and start a new one for the new price. My guess this activated the whole thing. Hope this helps anyone who experiences the same thing. I have another question. How do you close a conversation that you have opened here?Thanks again

Adobe stopped offering CS6 with any subscriptions about a year ago... so any subscription update will cancel CS6

 

If you have CS6 due to a purchase, with a serial number, read below

As soon as you install any part of the Cloud, even a trial, it replaces your program management system
-if you plan to keep using CS6 (or earlier) you should NOT install a Cloud program, not even a trial
-Read Cloud takes over https://community.adobe.com/t5/Get-Started/Get-off-the-cloud/td-p/8075485 for some ideas

 

Also, you should never update your Mac... new operating systems will not allow CS6 to run

Thanks but as I mentioned I have been using both for a long time.

This only happened when I got the "deal".

And as I said the ONLY way to continue using CS6 is if you purchased the serial number... any new 'deal' is going to cancel using CS6 without a serial number

Of course I have a serial number. Have been using their software since the 1990s.
When I talked to Adobe on the phone they told me an Adobe tech would respond in this forum.
Is this true?

Go back and click the link I provided about the cloud taking over

 

No, Adobe is not going to reply in this message... CS6 is end of life and no longer supported
