I bought the whole Creative Suite 6 years ago and a couple of years back my PC died from the dreaded blue screen of death but I still have the serial key for PC. I now have a Mac and was wondering if there's any way to swap my old PC serial Code for a Mac serial code so that I can get the suite back? Because at the moment I can't access it in anyway but I have bought it which is frustrating.

Thanks!

If you don't want to subscribe to the Cloud, your remaining option is to run your existing CS6 (Windows) in a virtual Windows environment on your Mac using Parallels, VMware Fusion, Boot Camp or similar.

Hello. Do you still have the pc suite? I have the same problem in reverse having purchased the mac version and changed to pc. Did you resolve the issue? There may be a way to swap/transfer licences. 

Kind regards Toby

Thank you. It's a full license rather than an Education license.

The serial number of the Mac version cannot be used for the Windows version.
And, CS6 is already 10 years old and not practical.
Consider subscribe and install Creative Cloud.

The only way to use it is to get a computer running an older OS that matches the OS of the software you own. Offline authentication is still available for CS6 products, so you can still use them on a computer that does not have a direct connection to the Internet. But, updater is no longer available, so you have to be careful about that.
