I had to reinstall Windows earlier today due to some issues, and in the process of reinstalling things I come to Adobe to redownload CS6. Only to find that 'they only offer  installers of current versions'. 

Doess that mean to tell me, that Adobe is basically telling me I can't use the products I bought and paid for? Unless I give them more money? Surely, there's somewhere where these installers still exist?

Adobe has removed ALL public download links for installs and updates
.
The process below USED to work (until April 14) if you bought a download direct from Adobe... an employee is trying to find out why this process no longer works, so IF you bought a download direct from Adobe, check back every day to see if the process starts working again
.
For CS6 back to CS4 you may download ONLY if you bought direct from Adobe via download
-Log-in to your account and click this link https://account.adobe.com/products
--click Order history on the left and then the link to your order that will show on the right
--and finally click the link "Downloads and serial numbers" that will appear
--as always, write the serial number in a text file AND copy that text file and the
---download file(s) to an external drive (or two) to be sure you have what you need
-if you did not buy direct from Adobe via download you must find your original install
--if you have an Education or volume license you MUST use your original media
--the link for an Education or volume license download is not available at all
-if you bought a disc and don't have a drive you will need to buy an external USB drive
-if you bought a download from a 3rd party vendor you will need to contact that vendor

Actually, it STILL works! Using that process, I was able to recover all installers and serial numbers. YES.


You are a lifesaver, thank you! Now...to make backups of all this and backups of the backups...

I just checked, and my history has also been restored, so whatever caused the history to go away has clearly been fixed... but, as you said, copy the download files to an external drive, or two... or write to a DVD... along with a text file containing your serial number
