I recently had to upgrade my computer after many years. I have a valid CS-5 license, which shows valid on my Adobe account on your portal. On the portal, under the list of my products, Photoshop Extended is shown, with the valid code. The window also allows you to re-download the code. I did that. When I start the program, it comes up with a window that asks me to enter the license code, or to continue with the software as a trial for 30 days (now 27). When I enter the code, it opens an Adobe internet site which tells me my software "is not genuine". I called the Adobe help desk, and was basicilly run around and told that my only solution is to buy a $9.95 per month license. I don't want that. I want the orginal software I paid for. Why can I not use the valid key I have which comes from my account information in the Adobe system!!
Kevin, I do not understand your response, as you say they should reset my activations but then say they cannot assist with activation. When talking to the help desk, I pretty much got the impression they are being told "don't help, just sell subscriptions." Can they actually reset the activation? They did not volunteer that info at all.
