Hi there,  Thanks for reaching out. In order to retrieve the serial number, you can sign-on to www.adobe.com and sign in with the Adobe ID on which you registered the Product. Once signed in you can navigate to the product section and you will be able to get the serial number from there. For more information you can refer to this help article: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/download-install/kb/find-serial-number.html Regards Rishabh

Rishabh, you did not mention the fact that CS3 activation servers were shut down. Even if the OP can find a serial number they will need help getting a new one.

 

I can't find any valid links to help out. They've all been moved or killed.

InDesign is still going strong, you've missed about 10 upgrades. Today it's subscription only.

Even if you manage to get a new serial number for it, CS3 is totally unsupported under Windows 10.
