I have a license for CFBuilder v3 and it is not accepting my license key in the new version, normally there is a link to download the version of the software against a license key with other software providers not sure why this is so difficult with Adobe
CFBuilder 2016 would have a different license key from V3. If you have a license for CF 2016, you should have gotten at least one license key for CFBuilder 2016 as well.
I didn't pay close enough attention to the title - specifically asking about CFBuilder 3 (not 2016). Older versions (including CFBuilder 3) can be downloaded from the community ColdFusion repository: http://www.cfmlrepo.com/.
Thank you, that's perfect!
In addition to Carl’s helpful suggestion, I’ll add also that folks who license software from Adobe are also given a link to a non-public site where they could still download the older versions they had licensed, like CFBuilder 3. That URL is https://licensing.adobe.com. Of course, it requires a login and password. There is of course a forgot password feature.
And often the person who “has the license” to be installed either no longer recalls having been given that URL, or having created an account, or what email they used. Or they are not actually the person who “bought” CF or CFB (and to whom the email was sent) at all, and THAT person may no longer recall the URL, or the email account used to login, etc.
I do understand somewhat why Adobe doesn’t offer the older versions on their site once the newer one comes out, though I do wish they would leave the older one for some period of time, or just offer an “archive” area to get to the old one. In some cases, they literally had to remove it because of licensing issues with 3rd parties where (having removed some licensed software from CF, for instance), they HAD to remove from the public site any CF installers that included that library.
Still, we could also just ask that Adobe make more clear (on the main pages for CF and CFB) how one who DOES have such a license and who DOES want to get to the older version could go about finding that in the private licensing site. That seems trivial to add. I will ask some folks I know to see if we may get any answer (or perhaps they may see this here and chime in).

This link is taking me to 2018 builder. Could you tell me where I can download builder released with CF 2016 please?
Thank you BKBK!
