I have an old G5 dual processor Mac that I had installed Photoshop Cs2 and Photoshop CS2 upgrade years ago. That Mac processor is no longer supported, software cannot be upgraded and it can no longer be connected to the internet. I would like to move this program to my new Windows 10 system. I have the original install disks and the boxes I bought them in but they are for Macintosh only. How can I get install files for these programs so I can install on my Windows 10 system?
