I was referred to this Forum by a Adobe hotline staff hoping to find a solution here. The problem I have is re-registering my Adobe products after changing a hard drive in my laptop.  CS2 and CS3 were purchased from a vendor at a computer trade show in Taiwan. At the time, they offered CS3 bundled with CS2(I still have the documents and the product in its original boxes/CD to proved my purchase). As I am an occasional user of CS, I don't keep track of news from the Adobe media. Naively, thinking that it is a retail license, and should be able to use it indefinitely. So, I am shock to learn Adobe have stop all licensing of the product and support. I was told this forum is official and will help me out of the mud. So, any help will be appreciated.

 

Thank You.

Sorry, but we can't help. Adobe has shutdown the activation servers some years ago. You can't activate CS - CS3 products anymore. This are dead products.

 

BTW: This is an official forum. Most of the members they are active here are normal user as you are.
