Adobe no longer sells, supports or updates CS6.

@Manoj K K,

That's NOT a genuine Adobe Employee!!!   DO NOT respond to it. 

There is no such thing as a lifetime warranty. 

Real Adobe employees cannot sell CS6.

If you are getting an "activation limit reached" error, you will need to deactivate the program on your old machine first. If you no longer have access to the old machine, you may be able to contact Adobe Customer Care and request and Activation Reset, if CS5 activation servers are still running.

If you're getting a "license revoked" error, it would mean that you purchased an illegally sold volume license from one of the many companies who were taking advantage of Adobe's somewhat lax policies in the past regarding licensing. The only fix for that error is to purchase the Creative Cloud version.

Adobe no longer sells or supports Creative Suite software in any country. If you get an email, or private message through this forum, offering to sell you a CS version, don't fall for it, it's a scammer.

As Jon said, deactivate CS5 from your other computer by going to DW's Help Menu.


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.
https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/install-creative-suite-mac-os-sierra.html

NOTE 2: Legacy Creative Suite will never run on Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey.  Only the latest Creative Cloud products are compatible with newer Macs.

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

In case people are wondering why I marked this as the correct answer, I feel that it should be highlighted to stop others from falling into the trap.

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.
