Hi. I purchased Photoshop CS2 many years ago. I ran it happily on my computer for many years, and I was unaware of the server issue and Adobe offering a special download when it happened.  I would like to install my paid for program on my new computer, as CS2 is still all I need for my uses.  Does anybody have a copy of the special program anywhere still?  I know it's not on the Adobe site anymore, but there must be people who still have it.

Absolutely correct – CS2 was never free, nor authorized for use without a valid license... Here is an article from that time:

As far I know, these special downloads were bound to the user who downloaded them, i.e., they were meant to be used by the user who requested them. I am not sure if the terms of the agreement allow sharing of these installers with others, especially when the registration servers are not working anymore.
