Hi @Zuczekxx5C41, No.  CS3 from 2007 is officially dead now, sorry.  The activation servers were retired and taken offline many years ago so it's impossible to activate the software.  Buy a subscription to Creative Cloud and use Animate CC (formerly called Flash Pro).  https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html Be sure to output your Animate project to HTML5 Canvas, WebGL or some other technology OTHER THAN Flash because browsers no longer support Flash for security reasons. https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html...

You can try to install it. But what is the point? You can't use flash files on the web anymore, it's done

Be sure to output your Animate project to HTML5 Canvas, WebGL or some other technology OTHER THAN Flash because browsers no longer support Flash for security reasons.

Hope that helps.
