I can no longer load my CS2 using my purchased cd's. My computer is captible but when I enter my serial key it tells me that it is incorrect when I know it is correct.  An Adobe customer service support member implied that because CS2 was discontinued I will no longer beable to use it.  It seems that Adobe is taking something from me that I paid for.  My computer still runs PhotoShop 5.5, a much older program.

I would like my existing program to work or Adobe to give me one that will.

CS3 and earlier are completely dead programs that may not be activated

 

Adobe will not give you a free replacement

Adobe discontinued Creative Suite 1, 2 and 3.  The activation servers were retired several years ago.  So even if you have an old computer, the original disks and a matching serial number, it won't do you any good because there is no possible way to activate the software.  

MODERN OPTIONS:
Photoshop or Premier Elements 2020 (approx $100, no subscription needed)
https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-elements.html

Creative Cloud Photography Plan (approx $10/month for 1 year subscription)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography.html

Creative Cloud All Apps Plan (31 + apps & services)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html

 

===========
Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away!  Creative Suite is no longer legally sold by any vendor, retailer or country now.
