I have an old version of the Adobe Creative Suuite Premium (version 1.0).  Yes I know it's old, but still works.  Anyway, I have been using Illustrator for work for years now, and just installed the whole creative suite onto my laptop at home.  It will not let me activate the system, so I can't use it.  While working from home right now, this is very inconvenient and frustrating and because of the age of the program, adobe chat couldn't help.  Anyone know what I should do?

You will not be able to activate it.  The activation servers have been shut down.

What the heck?  I spent a lot of money on this creative suite.  How can it work but not be able to activate?  Maybe I don't understand.  Can you elaborate a little?

I've moved this from the poorly named Community Help forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Get Started forum.

I'm afraid your obsolete software from 17 years ago is dead and gone. When the activation servers failed several years back, Adobe retired them and discontinued support for Creative Suite 1.  There is no possible way to activate your outdated software today.  Sorry.

Creative Suite is no longer legally sold by any vendor, retailer or country.

OPTIONS:

https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-elements.html

Creative Cloud Photography Plan (approx $10/month for 1 year subscription)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography.html

Creative Cloud All Apps Plan (31 + apps & services)

===========
Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away!
