I moved your post over from the poorly named Community Help forum, which is for getting help using this forum system, to a better forum, Download & Install.

 

But STOP. Although Win7 is no longer supported it has more life than Win 8, (Win 8 Is DEAD DEAD DEAD) and Win 8.1.

 

Not sure what you mean by transferred ownership but unless they had contact Adobe and transferred the license for CS6 to you they should not of given you that computer with CS6 installed on it.


I hope this helps. Best of luck to you.

Win 8 won't help you.  You're better off remaining on Win7.  Problem solved for the moment.  But the license transfer  needs to be completed.  And you need the product serial number otherwise you can't re-install anything.
