I had CS4 loaded on my old laptop running Windows 7-- no longer working. I need to open old CS4 files on my Windows 10 laptop. Looking to load my original CS4 CD on Windows 10 for this purpose. However, there is some confusion on activation. I have my original CS4 CD and serial number on hand and would like to know if activation with my original serial number requires online activation since I have discovered that CS4 activation servers are no longer operational. Will my serial number activate CS4  without the need for online activation before I decide to load the CD on my Windows 10 laptop? Desperately in need of opening old files. I have no need to upgrade to the cloud suite. I am not a design professional. Thank you in advance.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post if it helps you get responses.

Thank you for the timely reply. I read a post that tells of someone contacting Adobe for manual activation assistance and a new activation number was issued to activate. True? False?
