Can I use my original CS6 disks to install a copy on a second mac running mojave? If so, can I avoid deactivating CS6 on my first mac?

If the program doesn't want to install, read this... may not be needed for your operating system
Apple did not maintain backward compatibility, so try this to install old programs
I tried it both ways: After typing in my serial number a black window pops up "Please connect to the internet" and two buttons saying "connect later" and "try again". I am definetly connect to the internet. Tried multiple hits of "try again", same result. I didn't want to hit "connect later" as that seems to start a 7-day window to verify my serial number. The number is correct and is what I used on the first mac for the same install. What to do?
Adobe no longer supports TLS 1.0 and 1.1. Please check your system that you're enabled the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 protocol.
For more infos take a look here:
Also upgrade your browsers to enable TLS 1.2 connections.
Thanks. I understand that Safari 14.1.2, which I run, has TLS 1.2 automatically enabled. The other link you sent points to a system fix for TLS 1.2 for Windows. However, I'm on a Mac. Any ideas?
After very choppy comunication with Adobe level 3 I was told that the reason I can't install CS6 is that Adobe does not support my DVD license anymore. They are asking now $299.95 for a digital CS6 license. The CS6 I bought came with a PERPETUAL LICENSE, so I am not going to pay 300 bucks for something I already own. Adobe made my DVD license unusable, not me. They should replace it for a license that works, free of charge, and honor their original commitment of a perpetual license. This has the stench of exortion to me...
I was contacted through this forum by **scam email email@example.com
Maybe it is a scam. But how do I contact Adobe about my issue? I can't find anything but this forum.
Please go to Adobe Customer Service (make sure to sign into your Adobe account first and allow popups on your browser) and only ask to have your activations reset:
https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen will automatically open the chat window.
Type "Agent" in the chat box to bypass the chatbot and be connected to a person.
You may also be able to contact Adobe by phone:
>Maybe it is a scam
ABSOLUTELY a scam... Adobe has a domain, it does NOT use outlook for email
Thanks Bob, yes, it was a scam.
So I was able to install CS6 on my 2014 Mac mini (Mojave) from my orginal dvd. However, the installer would not connect to the internet so I chose the "connect later" option. That installed it, but gave me a warning that it would stop working in 7 days. When I started Photoshop it prompted me to validate/activate it, but again would not connect to Adobe. That dialog box has since not reappeared. So what to do?
