How can I use my CS4 Design Premium? Adobe said it is no longer supported. I got laid off and no longer have access to the current versions. I need to access my old files in order to get a new job. I have purchased CS2 Design Premium, CS4 Desigin Premium, Photoshop 6, Illustrator 7 (I believe)... Acrobat and several others over the years. I've spend thousands of dollars and now they say it is worthless?? PLEASE can someone help me?

What is your computer?

 

CS4 will not run at all on a modern Mac, and probably will not run on a Windows 10 computer

 

What is your EXACT problem... are you trying to install, or will your old programs not run?

 

When you ask a question you always need to provide some basic information

No longer supported is not the same as cannot use the software. Just means Adobe will not assist you with any CS4 issues.

 

If you're on a Mac running Catalina or Big Sur then you're out of luck. Anything else, then follow the steps for Windows below.

 

If you're on Windows, install CS4, enter your CS4 serial number (which I assume is an upgrade) then enter your CS2 serial number when prompted. CS4 should install and activate and you can then use it.
