Although on life support, CS6 can still be activated providing you have the following:
1. original disks, downloads or replacement from Pro Design Tools (see * below),
2. a legitimate serial number for that particular version and platform (Win/Mac), 3. an older operating system that can support legacy Creative Suite.
NOTE 1: Serial numbers for Student/Teacher or volume licensed editions may not work with this package. Also Adobe may remove these anytime without notice. Be sure to follow the VERY IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS on that page otherwise your access will be denied.
