Are there legal objections to installing Adobe software in a virtual machine?

I have a lincensed Photoshop CS6 on my work laptop running Mac OS Mojave. I'd like to upgrade to Catalina, but of course that means I'd lose the ability to use CS6. Since I don't use it very often, and not for anything very heavy, I was thinking of installing it in a virtual machine, which I could then run whenever I need Photoshop. My sys admin balked at the idea, but I am wondering whether there are any legal objections to doing so. I haven't, of course, read through any of the licensing agreements!

 

I'd be grateful for any insights. If this isn't possible, I'd relunctantly make the jump to Affinity, which is clearly inferior to Photoshop, at least for certain tasks.

 

Thanks!

Hi

I don't see any issues, according to this, it's for the Creative Cloud but I'm sure it would be the same for perpetual licences also
