Has someone successfully installed and works without troubles now with a version of Adobe CS (5; 5,5 or 6) in Windows 7 and now in Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro of 2010 (!) having installed Windows via Boot Camp? I use the software of Paragon (not Parallels). Which kind a OS.x do you use? I consider to upgrade my MacBook Pro (using Adobe CS 5 in Snow Leopard student/teacher edition so that I would have to buy another version but don't want to have to pay every month).

Creative Suite is no longer supported.  You use legacy software entirely at your own risk.  CS5 should work on Win10 but  there are no guarantees. It was designed to work on XP, Vista & Win7.

I have bought Adobe CS 5 only for Mac. But I could search for Adobe CS 6 in the internet now to get though it is no longer supported. I work well with Adobe CS 5 on Mac OS though it is no longer supported but this software has been offered especially for Snow Leopard (having bought it in 2010). So Adobe CS 6 might also work both on Windows 7 and Windows 10?

Creative Suite will never work with Catalina. Face it.  If you own a Mac, you need modern software.


MODERN OPTIONS:
Photoshop or Premier Elements 2020 (approx $100, no subscription needed)
https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-elements.html

Creative Cloud Photography Plan (approx $10/month for 1 year subscription)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography.html

Creative Cloud All Apps Plan (31 + apps & services)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html

 

===========
Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away!  Creative Suite is not sold by legitimate vendors in any country.

Why should not the Adobe CS 6 (is this the lastest version of Adobe CS?) work on Windows 10 though it is made for Windows 7? I heard that other sofware f.i. where the producer no longer exists works on Windows 10. And why should not someone sell CS 6 or 5,5 etc. sell it cheaper now that it is old?

I used mainly Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Dreamweaver and Acrobat. Maybe I do not know other new software I will like ... (compare Encore)

If Adobe is not compatible with the newest system of Apple now more people will try it with Windows 10 installed via bootcamp. Does this officially work properly (Creative Cloud or the older CS 5, 5,5 or 6)?

Adobe stopped selling CS6 years ago and stopped offering it to resellers. Anything you find on the internet will be pirated, malware, or probably both.

There is no "officially" for products where support has ended. Adobe will only test the current versions of products, and don't test or certify in boot camp at all. Creative Cloud 2020 is designed to work in Catalina, and if you have a Mac that is the only path I could suggest.

You use outdated software at your own risk.  It's not guaranteed on a different platform or OS than the one it was built for.  It might work or it might not.  The only way to know for sure is TRY IT.

Cs was sold either for MacOS or for Windows. You are out of luck as there is no license available that you can acquire and install legally. If you get a legal second hand copy (if) you may try to install and it may run. Even if old software is told to run on Windows 10, the initial release of Windows 10 is not the sane as the current version.

And to expand a little on what John and Nancy said, if anyone contacts you here through a direct message saying that they are an Adobe employee and offering to sell you a copy of CS6, report them. They're lying and they're scammers. Pay particular attention to the user name (they often have "Adobe" at the beginning, such as "Adobe_JohnSmith" or and the email address. We often see "AdobeCares @ outlook . com" (separated so as not to trigger nannyware) in those messages.

To try means that I have to buy the software before and how to get the money back if it does not work. I have "called" the Adobe Support before and they referred to the following website because I told them that I do not want to have to pay for an abo:

https://adobedealreg.secure.force.com/PartnerSearch?lang=de So I wonder why here it is said that I can no longer buy software CS5 or higher of Adobe.

Indeed, someone has asked me here for my serial number of my old software of Adobe and I tought that someone might have wanted to use it to work with it. I delete those emails.

To say you can't buy it is an oversimplification. Adobe do not make CS, not for many years. They do not supply it to resellers. Because their business now is to sell CC instead. So you cannot buy it from Adobe. The chances that anyone will have "old stock" to sell after 7 years is very small, that would not be a well run business, in the same way that a card dealer will not happen to have a brand new 7 year old model that they had not sold yet. So if a business offers to sell you CS, they must be selling you fakes. Or perhaps selling you nothing but trying to get your credit card. If you don't want CC I suggest you look for another company. CC is Adobe's only offer for professional software (except Premiere Elements, Photoshop Elements, which are both consumer products, and for some reason Acrobat Pro 2017).

How can this company, which has existed only 8 months, have stocks of something that was stopped 7 years ago? It seems to me impossible to explain unless this is counterfeit software. They lie about prices too, for some reason: one product is shown as 149 euro reduced from 399 euro; yet the original price would have been over 2000 euro. They perhaps know that this would seem suspicious, so they make it seem like a bargain, but a possible bargain. As well as being illegal, there is a high risk of included malware. Caveat emptor.

Momentan gibt es die Idee, nur von Snow Leopard auf Lion upzugraden, damit ich wenigsten Air Print am MacBook Pro habe. Funktioniert dann mein von Adobe gekaufes CS5 und Acrobat Pro 9.5.5. und Lightroom 3 (alle aus 2010/2011 für Snow Leopard damals gleichzeitig gekauft) eventuell auch noch in Lion?

If it's genuine software and you have the original installation disks & a matching serial number, CS5 should work on Lion and higher. 

 

I don't think it's possible to use old Acrobat for security reasons.

 

I don't know about Lightroom 3.  You will need to try it and see if it works.

I have a genuine Adobe CS 5 student and teacher edition - so I ask again if it will work on the student and teacher edition. I could use a newer Adobe Acrobat Pro in Windows 7 - could I get this for free or without spending too much money from Adobe? (maybe is has been in my CS 5 for Mac). I would like to connect PDFS in one PDF which has been possible with Adobe Acrobat. Is it also possible to sign PDFs without having to print and scan them?

It's the same for Student/Teacher editions of Creative Suite.  They are all discontinued. Use at your own risk.

 

FREE Acrobat Reader DC.  Use it to comment, view, print & sign PDF.

https://get.adobe.com/reader/

 

There is a small fee to use Acrobat Standard and Acrobat Pro DC.

I imagine the the student and teacher edition has had no Updates and therefore might not work well with later OS versions. This one reason why I did not upgrade on Lion (besides the Apple software Final Cut Express). But maybe it works with only one newer OS.

"I ask again if it will work on the student and teacher edition. I could use a newer Adobe Acrobat Pro in Windows 7 - could I get this for free or without spending too much money from Adobe? "

 

1. It was possible to switch platforms for CS5 until CS6 was released 8 years ago, unless you had a student version (no switches).

2. It was possible to pay to upgrade for many years, but this was finished when CS6 was discontinued. Unless you had a student version (no upgrades).

3. All upgrades are irrelevant and gone now because subscriptions include upgrades as long as you pay.

 

Your position is exactly the same as someone who never had the software, with regard to the current software. You had the student discount, so that was that right away, but even without it, you are far too late. Adobe gave discounts to regular, full paying customers only.

I have installed the newest version of Adobe Acrobat now but for me also Adobe Acrobat Pro is rather expensive. I still do not understand if the Adobe CS5 student and teacher edition really works properly in Lion (I bought it for Snow Leopard). What is meant by "platforms" - differerent OS systems like Snow Leopard or Lion?

I am willing to pay for software but now I am angry because my MacBook of 2010 pro does not work properly and will not do that any more simply because the operating systems changes. The hardware still o.k. I should through away my computer and buy all the "same" stuff again. I am simply not willing to pay so much for hardware and software and the garbage gets bigger and bigger, especially the one of my printers (Adobe not being responsible for that) .... I am not content with these facts.

Platform means operating system. In the context of a "platform switch" (which you can't have), it's between Mac and Windows. But for whether apps work, it's down to the level of Snow Leopard vs. Lion. I doubt anyone can remember or still try out your systems - you are really out there on the edge. There is no support. You can only try it and see. Things may fail completely, or in minor ways that you don't care about.

I'm not certain what answer you are looking for here, but it's becoming obvious that you aren't interested in the ones we're giving you. To make it plain:

 

  • All the programs you are talking about using or buying have been discontinued. They are no longer sold by Adobe. They are no longer supported by Adobe. 
  • Adobe is not responsible for changes to an OS that prevent discontinued software from running. They are not going to invest time and resources into updating a discontinued program to keep it running on modern equipment or operating systems.
  • You may be able to install the old programs on a new(er) OS, but there's no guarantee they'll work. 
  • The link you were given by support is to a page that lets you find legitimate Adobe software resellers in your country. Anyone not on that list is not a legitimate Adobe reseller. Legitimate resellers will not sell you anything other than the current version of Adobe programs, most of which are subscription-only.
  • We have no way of knowing if the programs you are talking about buying are legitimate programs, and we're not going to try to find out, either. You buy those programs at your own risk, as they can be cracked, non-working, or infected by malware or ransomware.
  • Anyone offering to sell you a "new" copy of a program or a version of a program that is no longer sold by Adobe is probably a scammer.
