What is the exact error you are seeing?

Is your CS6 an upgrade version? (It should say somewhere on the packaging). If it is, you would need the qualifying serial number from the previous version to install it. To get that, all you should need to do is log into your Adobe account to look up registered products.

If you are getting a "License Revoked" message, it would mean you inadvertantly purchased an illegal copy of a volume license from a third party seller in the past and Adobe has finally caught up to the thieves, disabling the volume license.

Hi @Graham Laddie,

Use the Adobe Cleaner Tool below to wipe Adobe apps from your system.  Restart your computer.

Reinstall CS6.  It's on life support but as of this writing it can still be activated with the following:
1. original media (disks or downloads) that you received at purchase and a way to read them,
2. a legitimate serial number for that specific 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.

NOTE 2: Creative Suite is NOT compatible with Catalina or Big Sur.

NOTE 3: Legacy Creative Suite is discontinued & unsupported. Use at your own risk.

I believe CS6 is actually still available to download from Adobe if you have a valid serial number. I just tried this KB article myself and CS6 is still an option for me.

Pro Design Tools' website has direct download links. But Adobe can remove these installers anytime without warning.  

1) Follow the VERY IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS or it won't work.

2) It might not work with a student/teacher or volume licensed serial number.
