Hi,

 

I'm having problems with activating Adobe Photoshop CS3 for our customer.

Deactivation went flawlessly, though all tries of activation on new PC failed...

All I'm getting is error 194:12. Offline activation tries with assistance of Adobe guy failed too - he got "errors of activation", whatever this means.

I've tried cleaning up PC and reinstalling Photoshop CS3, but it was no-go.

 

Trial period ends in 4 days, and I need to do something before this time arrives. User needs Photoshop CS3 for work.

You mention this is a new PC.  Older versions of Adobe products are proving to be incompatible with the latest operating systems.  There will be no updates to the older programs to accommodate new technology.

This is false information, Photoshop CS3 works on windows 10! You can activate the software. But I don't remember the procedure anymore ...

The CS3 and earlier activation server has been removed
