How can I install my old Master Collection CS5 from an old laptop to my new one? I have CDs, but my new laptop does not have CD drive. Still have the serial numbers, and I am trying to register my product to Adobe (and download) but it says: product already in use (I guess, installed in my old laptop). How can I install this product to my new laptop?

CS5 and CS6 are on life support. But they can still be activated providing you have the following: 1. original media (disks or downloads) you received at purchase and a way to read them, 2. a legitimate serial number for that version, language and platform (Win/Mac), 3. an older operating system that can support legacy 32-bit apps. -------------------------- NOTE 1 : Creative Suite installers won't work on macOS Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave without terminal workarounds. See the help article below. https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/install-creative-suite-mac-os-sierra.html
NOTE 2: Creative Suite cannot run on Catalina or Big Sur. It's too old.
NOTE 3: Legacy Creative Suite is discontinued & unsupported. Use at your own risk.
Registration is one-time only and not required to use the software.
