Hi There

 

I had Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional installed on my home PC but it needed to get rebuilt. I tried deregistering and it wouldnt. I found various web pages to try and fix the issue, all of which i followed (that included modifying windows "hosts" files), all with no success.

 

I tried installing it on the new PC but it requires activation, which i cannot do as i can't deregister the old version.

 

And today i see on that Adobe help pages that bteh servers are aged and issues will be encountered for pre 9 versions of the software.

 

I have the original CD case and CD in front of me (literally) with the serial number.

 

Ive been told to post here so a moderator can assist me further

 

Cheers

you can no longer activate acrobat 8 because the activation servers are offline (Adobe Creative Suite archive).  there's no work-around other than updating to a current acrobat version.
