Thank you but not interested in renting software I don't need when I own the software slready
...I don't need when I own the software slready
Unfortunately, you don't own anything. Adobe owns the software you use. You merely have a limited license to use it for as long as activation is still possible and your computer can support it. CS6 is on borrowed time.
CS6 End User License Agreement -- English begins on page 112
Hopefully Adobe support can reset your CS6 activation count. Good luck! 🙂

Notwithstanding the accounting thing due in part to the Dodd-Frank Reform Act of 2010, Adobe and other software makers adopted the subscription model to try and keep pace with rapid OS changes that come out every month or so. Under the old model, we had to wait 18 months for upgrades which doesn't work anymore.
Did you deactivate your software on your old computer? If you still have access to them, you should do that, otherwise, you need to contact Adobe, as stated above.
Yes it is not only deactivated but not in the laptop at all
