Hi

Activation servers for CS3 have been shutsown and unless you got a non activated version from Adobe you're out of luck

Hi Ged, I got a non-activation version and I still have the original .dmg file from the download. When attempting a re-install, it seems to accept my original CC3 serial number but then asks for activation. Look at other forum inquiries, it seems that I must have been given a new serial number for the non-activtion version but I can't find it. Any advice?

You must use the special serial number that is mated to the non-activation installer

 

Adobe stopped supplying those quite some time ago
