My new Mac will no longer support 32-bit technology at the nwxt update. Current version is Mojave. My CS4 is the only app that still has not updated to 64-bit. Is this an issue with CS4? Is it no longer supported? I have some plug-ins that did not get transferred to this new Mac and don't want to address that issue until I have a photoshop version updated.

I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Download and Install forum.

There will be no updates. CS4 was replaced by CS5 over 10 years ago. If you want to keep running this old (and excellent) software you must freeze the system and can never run it on a new Mac.

It's 2020 and this is where things stand right now.  CS1, CS2 and CS3 are dead & gone. The activation servers were removed from service years ago. Even if you find an installer, it's impossible to activate the software.

CS4, CS5 and CS6 are on life support. But they can still be activated providing you have the following:
1. original media (disks or downloads) you received at purchase and a way to read them,
2. a legitimate serial number for that version, language and platform (Win/Mac),
3. an older operating system that can support legacy 32-bit apps.
--------------------------
NOTE 1 : Creative Suite installers won't work on macOS Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave without terminal workarounds. See the help article below.

NOTE 2: Creative Suite cannot run on Catalina. Either downgrade your OS, set-up a virtual machine or get all new, 64-bit software. Your choice. https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html

NOTE 3: Legacy Creative Suite is discontinued & unsupported. Use at your own risk.
