CS3 can no longer be activated so give up any idea of installing it.

Needing to use it does not make it any less dead. No you cannot simply copy licensing info to another computer. Adobe went to a lot of trouble to protect their licenses from simple copying.

There is no such thing as offline activation.  And the online activation servers are physically gone.  Nobody can help you with this.  Sorry.

 

It strikes me odd that a company would have any interest in discontinued, unsupported software from 11 years ago.  A lot has changed since then.  A modern replacement would be a Creative Cloud for Teams plan.

Not to speak of the threat of using old software with old unpatched vulnerabilities.

You have 7 posts and all of them about the same thing.  We have told you repeatedly, CS3 cannot be activated.
