Hello,

 

I have just had my mac repaired, the harddrive went. It is a old Macos high sierra.

 

So I now have a new harddrive and want to install my Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium. Can I still do this?

The Adobe installer on disc 1 will not allow me to install?

Anyone?

It's absolutely impossible to run CS2 on High Sierra. Maybe it was CS3, but you can't install that anywhere at all. Given a suitably old system you could install CS4/CS5/CS6 but they have real problems on recent Macs. For Catalina you will need a Creative Cloud subscription. In a couple of years, Apple have said, they will make all current apps obsolete all over again. This is one key reason subscriptions are good...

No matter your operating system, CS2 won't work

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 or CS2
