I have Dreamweaver CS6 installed on one PC. I just cancelled my CC subscription after a year and decided to return to using DW CS6. However, I get the "activation limit reached" error and it suggests I deactivate DW on another computer.
I do not have access to the other computer and I know that DW was no longer installed on it.
How can I reset my activation limit so my CS6 app will work again? Is there some effective way to get help for this because there I can find no option anywhere to reset the count.
Thanks for your attention

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

Thanks for that. I did get on to the chat - the first agent did not seem to be able to successfully reset the count - so he transferred to a 2nd agent who did.
Thanks again 🙂
The further Adobe is from serial number programs being the only way to do things, the fewer chat agents know anything about old programs
Hi, today, I ran into the same problem. I upgraded my old computer without deinstalling PS6. Now I wanted to install it again and I ran into the activation problem. A few years ago, there was a chat assistant. But now, when I click on chat, no window opens up. Only the support page. Any ideas?
using a browser that allows popups and cookies, contact adobe support by clicking here, https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen
in the chat field (lower right), type AGENT
be patient, it can take quite a while to reach a human
p.s. if you're contacted by anyone (via email or private message), it's much more likely to be a scammer than an adobe representative. ie, double check for an employee badge if contacted in the forums and look for an adobe.com domain in the email address if you click reply to an email. then check again and be very suspicious. any other method of contacting (or offering to contact you) is almost certainly a scam, https://community.adobe.com/t5/using-the-community-discussions/staying-safe-in-the-adobe-support-com....
p.p.s you can also use phone (but chat is usually quicker), https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/phone.html
