I just got a new Laptop and I am trying to install Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium. But I have a problem activating Adobe Design Premium CS3. Thank you for your attention.

Hi CIA_Design,

note that this link:

https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/activation-fails-cs3-acrobat-8.html

will not work as expected anymore.

 

It is listed at the very bottom of this page:

https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/error-activation-limit-reached-sign.html

 

So: No hope to activate CS3 in any circumstances.

CS3 is very old and you won't be able to install it on a recent laptop, Windows or Mac.

The activation servers of Adobe CS3 are all down.

 

Once we had some downloadable installers with separate activation keys that could be accessed by proofing a purchase of CS3. But they are not available anymore. Don't think you have a chance to activate/run any CS3 application after installing it from DVDs or other media.

Hello, for the CS3 there is no server to activate. CS3 is no longer used. I don't if it's possible to dowload the version of CS3 but CS3 wasn't test on the last OS Windows and MAC.

I'll checking if it's possible.
