I purchased cs4 many years ago through a FedEx employee purchase program, and have successfully installed it on previous computers. I bought a new computer, and even had windows 7 installed, specifically so I could run cs4. Now it is not accepting my license key. I installed it completely from the original discs I got when I purchased it. The install went fine, no problems. Photoshop is working, but whenever I open any other program in the Suite, it asks for the key, which I used on Photoshop, and the programs don't accept it. I'm afraid to delete and reinstall, as I need PS for my work, and I can't take a chance on it not working on the next install.
I don't about CS4 but I do know that for CS6 (and maybe CS5) there is a limit on activations
Do you always DE-activate when replacing an old computer?
IF your message was about a limit, try this
When you can't deactivate a serial number BE SURE TO ONLY ASK FOR ACTIVATION SUPPORT TO ADJUST YOUR ACTIVATION COUNT You may need to PERSIST or TRY AGAIN to find a support agent with more experience
