I got a new computer and I would like to know how can I activate Acrobat X Pro on my new computer. The system is telling that my code has been use already and has reached the maximum number of registrations. I guess because of my old computer.

if you have access to your old computer
1. secure your serial number
2. open acrobat x>click help>sign out or deactivate
3. install and activate on your new computer.
if don't have access to your old computer, using a browser that allows popups and cookies, contact adobe support during pst business hours by clicking here and, when available, click 'still need help', https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html and request an activation count reset. ask for nothing else or you'll be refused.
This worked. Thank you very much.
I have original CD for Adobe Acrobat X PRO with serial number. I put disk into DVD RW drive in my new Windows 10 PC,
and clicked SETUP file, installation wizard opend , requiested my serial number that was provided, and then after installation started. When after installation I have opened 1st file, it was requested to confirme agreement, and after that programm was normally working.
Yes, if you still have the original installer and serial number, and have not exceeded the allowed number of activations, it can still work, but keep in mind it's an old and unsupported version, not compatible with the current OS versions, so at the very least you should install all available updates.
