I have installed windows 10 on my old PC

I have now installed Adobe cs3 but none of the applications will open.

Last time I installed I made notes of my serial numbers so have those to hand.

When I try to open an application from cs3 it does not open at all.

 

Can you please advise me how to get my beloved cs3 working again

 

Many thanks

 

John Hardy

No. It's 2020 now. This discussion from 2017 is out of date.  CS3 is officially dead and gone now. 

 

The activation servers are retired.  Adobe discontinued support and removed the opportunity to obtain a replacement installer and serial number.  

 

I shouldn't have to remind anyone that CS3 is sorely outdated for web authoring.  Nobody should use it for production work.  You really do need a modern replacement.
