I have a corporate licenced Adobe Design and Web  Premium CS6 on my computer, I subscribed to Indesign CC for a few months and no longer needed the subscription, so I have cancelled it. My Indesign CS6 worked perfectly while I had the CC subscription. All my Adobe CS6 programmes are working perfectly except for my InDesign CS6. When I click on the CS6 Indesign icon it asks me to register the product, it does not need to be registered, it is registered. Please, can you help!

uninstall everything cc including preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html

then uninstall the cc desktop app, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html

clean your computer of cc files per http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html

use the uninstallers to uninstall your cs6

clean your cs6 per Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems

restart your computer (don't skip this)

reinstall your cs6

This answer doesn't work. I tried talking with support at adobe and they will only tell you that it's an old product and they won't support it, OR any questions about it, and to go to the forum to maybe find an answer. Besides rude, how unprofessional it that?

"This answer doesn't work." Did you try all of the steps (you can't skip any)? The key is you must get rid of every trace of CC, including files you could not find, because CC takes over licensing of CS6; then get CS6 again.

 

" tried talking with support at adobe and they will only tell you that it's an old product and they won't support it, "

This seems a professional answer correctly reflecting their long stated position. CS6 reached end of life for support five years after its first release, so they are following Adobe's procedures to tell you so.
