Can I reinstall Design Premium CS4

I reset my computer and my Adobe products have disappeared. I have had this computer and CS4 intalled on it since 2017. I still have the original disks with the activation key. I have read that Adobe no longer wishes to support this program and have retired the servers. Does this mean that I won't be able to get the programs up and running again? I am currently getting an error message that setup can't complete but I think this is because I downloaded the creative cloud app and the free adobe bridge. Is it worthwhile trying to reinstall these disks - a very time consuming process. If not, what are my options? I only use Photoshop.

Hi Sheriden,

 

"Does this mean that I won't be able to get the programs up and running again?"

That is correct. You can no longer use CS4 as the activation servers were old and had to be taken down.

 

You might want to take a look into the Photoshop Single App plan instead:
