My "fusion" hard drive failed in my iMac Retnia, forcing me to replace the drive and restore from a TimeMachine backup. Surprisingly all my Adobe apps survived, except Adobe GoLive 9, whiched "required" me to reinstall. Found the original ADBEGLE9_WWE.dmg download file, went through the install (it even found my original serial number!). But it will not finish the activation.

 

Went through the steps here:

But still no luck.

GoLive has been End of Life since 2008.  It's impossible to activate because the activation servers were retired years ago.    More importantly, nobody should be using grossly outdated web authoring software in 2021.  You're just shooting yourself in the foot if you do.   Time to get a code editor that's compatible with the latest operating systems and understands modern code and modern web standards.  See links below.   -- Adobe Brackets (open source) - http://brackets.io/-- Adobe Dreamweaver C...
