Looking for the CS Master collections (CS3,4,5,5.5, and 6) download links and I can't find them, web.archive.org isn't of much help either, I could only get CS2 and CS1.

First, CS3 and earlier are completely DEAD and gone... there is no activation server, so you will not be able to use them

 

For the rest, Adobe has removed ALL public download links

 

According to HOW LONG IS MY DOWNLOAD AVAILABLE at the next link the time is 3 years

For CS6 and earlier you may download ONLY if you bought direct from Adobe via download
-Log-in to your account and click this link https://account.adobe.com/products
--click Order history on the left and then the link to your order that will show on the right
--and finally click the link "Downloads and serial numbers" that will appear
--as always, write the serial number in a text file AND copy that text file and the
---download file(s) to an external drive (or two) to be sure you have what you need
-if you did not buy direct from Adobe via download you must find your original install
--if you have an Education or volume license you MUST use your original media
--the link for an Education or volume license download is not available at all
-if you bought a disc and don't have a drive you will need to buy an external USB drive
-if you bought a download from a 3rd party vendor you will need to contact that vendor

CS1, CS2 and CS3 are officially dead and gone.  Even if you could find old installers, you can never activate them because the servers for that are gone.

 

CS4, CS5 and CS6 are on life support.  Adobe Customer Care agents can't give you links to installers unless you have legitimate serial numbers purchased directly from Adobe.

 

For student/teacher & volume licensed editions, you must use your original disks provided to you at time of purchase.

 

=================

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.  Creative Suite is not legally sold by any retailer, vendor or country.
