This will get your heads scratching...
Ive been using DWW since 2011 to self finance, publish and maintain a small parish church website ( there are no other sites) . Main copy on the PC and back up portable copy on a laptop for use when on holiday so no weekly newsletters have been missed.
Ive never had problems upgrading PCs til now. I have the original CD/serials etc. My portable has lost its copy and is old so I purchased a new 2 in 1 this week. On installing all ok until: 2FA and the inability to email Adobe as I used to, who would sort out all my problems quickly.
1. The adobe id who purchased DW for us has moved on so I am unable to use 2FA - I never needed it before.
I would appreciate some help and direction on how to proceed.
CS5 and CS6 are on life support. But they can still be activated providing you have the following:
1. your 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) and if it was an upgrade, a qualifying serial number from an older product,
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: Legacy Creative Suite will never run on Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey. Neither will it be tested on Win11. Only the latest Creative Cloud products are compatible with newer operating systems.
NOTE 3: Legacy Creative Suite is discontinued & unsupported. Use at your own risk.

Hope that helps.
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! Real Adobe employees will never reach out via Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail or Skype.
