Activation doesn't work over the internet and the telephone numbers listed don't work either!

Have tried discussing this in your chatroom, after been transferred 4 times, your adviser stopped responding!

 

Really irritated by your appalling  service. Please could a real person take responsibility for this, I need an authorisation code.

CS3 is 12 years old.  The aging activation & registration servers were taken offline. 

 

STEP 1

Uninstall your old CS3 software and manually remove the old Adobe PCD folder.  It's also a good idea to run the Adobe Cleaner tool to wipe old files off your system.

STEP 2

Obtain a new CS3 installer and serial number that does not require activation.  See this link for details.

I hope you have an older operating system.  You will need one to keep using legacy CS3 software.   At some point though, you may have to decide which is more important -- using  outdated software or having a modern operating system with all the latest security updates.

 

Good luck!

CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS6 are all out of support. The authorization servers were shut down after 10 years, you cannot get a code.
