CS1, CS2 and CS3 are dead & gone. The aging activation servers failed and were taken offline years ago. So even if you find an installer, it's impossible to activate those versions of the software.

CS4, CS5 and CS6 are on life support. But they can still be activated providing you have the following:
1. original media (disks or downloads) you received at purchase and a way to read them (external optical readers are about $20 on Amazon),
2. a legitimate serial number for that version, language and platform (Win/Mac),
3. an older operating system that can support legacy 32-bit apps.
--------------------------
NOTE: Legacy Creative Suite is discontinued & unsupported. Use at your own risk.

CS6 has two installers for Windows a 32bit installer and a 64bit installer and both run on Windows 10 with all updates. It works very well.
