you can't activate cs2 so all you'll accomplish for your efforts is 1 month of trial use.  then you'll need to reformat your hard drive or install on another computer to get another month.

 

if that's worthwhile for you, use a compatible os (you can use compatibility mode with win) and install as admin.

@John T Smith , they are not completely dead.

 

 i think they're more trouble than they're worth, but that's an opinion, not fact.
