[Locked] Why is my purchased Dreamweaver CS3 deactivated? [CS3 is dead]

I have had Adobe Web Suite Premium CS3 for years now and somehow Adobe has reached into my system and deactivated the enire suite of programs. I get a window that says I have 5 days left to use the program. When I try to activate it says there is no connection. Of course my internet is working. The telephone option is no longer supported so that doesn't work. It has a message to go to adobe.com/go/activation which has no information for me on how to activate my owned and purchased copy. So nice to have to waste my time on this. What right does Adobe have to disable software that I have legally purchased? How do I get this activated?

CS1, CS2 and CS3 are officially dead and gone.  There is no possible way to activate the software because the servers are gone. 

 

Creative Suite is no longer legally sold by any vendor, retailer or country.

OPTIONS:
Download Brackets code editor.  It's free.

===========
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!

Have a look at Nancy's answer at https://community.adobe.com/t5/dreamweaver/activate-dreamweaver-cs3-is-dead/td-p/10432359?page=1

 

You could use http://brackets.io/ to replace the outdated Dreamweaver.

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.
