Hallo, nachdem mein Laptop den Geist aufgegeben hat und ich ihn plattmachen musste, habe ich mühsam alle wichtigen Programme wieder raufgespielt. Was musst ich nun zu meinem Entsetzen feststellen? Ich kann meine damals gekauftes CS3 nicht mehr benutzen, weil offensichtlich keine Online-Aktivierung mehr möglich ist. Verstehe ich das richtig, dass ein von mir teuer erworbenes Produkt, was einwandfrei funktioniert, nicht mehr nutzbar ist, weil Adobe einfach den Support einstellt? Ich glaube, das nennt man Betrug?! Es sollte nicht mein Problem sein, dass Adobe kein Interesse an seinen Nutzern hat, ich möchte einfach nur mein Programm weiternutzen. Und nicht jeden Monat ein Programm mieten. Ich habe nämlich eines! Welche Hilfestellungen bieten Sie an?

Mit besten Grüßen

Anne

these are user-to-user forums.

 

and no, you can still use cs3.  you just can't reinstall it on another computer.

 

ie, adobe didn't disable cs3 on your dead computer.  it would still work, if that computer worked.
