I installed my CS3 Design Standard to a new HP Desktop Envy AIO PC.  The old one crashed.

It keeps asking for a redemption code.  It did not have redemption codes when I purchasedd it.

How do I get around it, because you indicated I don't need one.

I've branched this to a new discussion for you as the other one is unrelated to CS3.

 

CS1, CS2 and CS3 are dead & gone. The activation servers were removed from service years ago. Even if you have an installer with a compatible valid serial number, it's impossible to activate the software.

>CS3 Design Standard

 

The CS3 and earlier activation server has been removed from service
-So even if you have a disc or saved download, CS3 and earlier are completely dead
-Adobe also no longer supplies the special non-activation version of CS3
