Hello, 

I was a community-college studnet back in 2013, and bought CS6 a week before it was discontinued. Fast forward to now, and my old school computer is barely functioning. I have set up a new computer however, it seems that I cannot transfer my Adobe software;

 

  1. I cannot find a legit (read:not pirated) version of CS6 to download
  2. I cannot transfer my software license as I do not have my old Adobe ID login info, nor do I have the studnet email I used to purchase (because it was 7 years ago)

 

Am I SOL, or is there light at the end of the tunnel? Help is appreciated.

CS1, CS2, and CS3 are dead & gone.  The activation servers were removed from service years ago.

 

CS4, CS5 and CS6 are on life support.  They can still be activated providing you have the following:

1. original student media (disks or downloads) you received at purchase,

2. a legitimate serial number for that particular student media, version and platform (Win/Mac),

3. an older operating system that can support legacy CS6.

 

NOTE:  Creative Suite installers won't work on macOS Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave without terminal workarounds.  Catalina is not an option as it cannot support older 32-bit apps.

 

MODERN OPTIONS:
Photoshop or Premier Elements 2020 (approx $100, no subscription needed)

Creative Cloud Photography Plan (approx $10/month for 1 year subscription)

Creative Cloud All Apps Plan (31 + apps & services)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html

 

===========
Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away!  Creative Suite is not sold by legitimate vendors in any country.
