Good Evening,

I know that many will wonder what in the heck I'm doing trying to activate my CS3 Suite. I have an old MBP that I've wipped and installed Sierra on that I'm setting up for my daughter. Even with my valid serial number, I'm unable to activate it. Any help is much appreciated. Thx

It's dead. The servers have long been taken offline.

Would you happen to know if there are any versions of Illustrator that are compatible with Sierra?

Adobe don't supply anything for old systems. When they move on, they really move on.

if you have cs5, cs5.5 or cs6, they can still be activated (however, they are not legally sold by anyone).  otherwise, you're limited to 30 days of use when the trial expires.

You can always try free tools like Inkscape. Open Source projects are community driven and there are always ways to compile a build for even the most obscure systems. Other than that this is really not unusual. Even alternate commercial programs like Affinity do not support these old Macs anymore.
