I am agraphic designer and I have the Adobe Creative Suite 4 CD dics installed on my HP laptop. This past year at Christmas my daughters purchase me a 26 inch IMAC computer I have migrated everthing onto the new IMAC computer except for the Adobe Creative Suite 4. So I need help with the migration/install/download to continue working. 

Thanks,

Angela

Bottom line is that your old CS4 software is no longer usable. At this point, the best bet is to subscribe to Adobe CC which is all current and compatible apps for your new computer.
