You probably can't but let's start with some details. Photoshop has not had verification codes for years. What version are you trying to install, and do you still have the disk and serial number? Don't tell us the serial number. Warning: fake Adobe reps may contact you to sell you a fix: real reps have nothing to sell.
you'll need to reinstall and activate your photoshop version using the installation file and serial number that matches that file.
and, if your version is cs4 or older, you won't be able to activate because of a problem on adobe's end.
if you want more help/info, what ps version and what os version and why are you trying to use offline activation (which introduces another problem)?
ok, i see you edited your message and that was more informative. if that was accurate, you can get one type of cs5 installation file here,
follow the directions (esp, step 1)
save the install file. it may not remain online.
thank jim @ prodesigntools.com
A moderator detached and edited the title, but it is not sure that the poster has a CS5, even that he hijacked a CS5 thread.
But yes: let us assume, for now, that they have Photoshop CS5.
@mxyeoman needs to confirm what version of software they have for both, OS and Adobe software.
In the absence of a compatible older computer that supports legacy (10+ year old) software, your original installation disks & valid serial number that you received at purchase, and an optical reader that can read those disks, you'll need to replace Creative Suite with modern software.
Photoshop Elements or Premiere Elements (approx $100, no subscription needed).
Creative Cloud Photography Plan (approx $10/month for 12 months). Includes the following:
Premium Adobe Express ($10/month).
Creative Cloud All Apps (51 + apps & services) and Single App Plans
Hope that helps.
