I purchased the entire CS3 Suite for Mac many years ago, and have more than one active websites created with Dreamweaver. Suddenly, when attempting to access any of the Apps, inclusing Photoshop, I am faced with a popup that attempts to activate the program, but fails to verify. The notice says that it cannot connect to Adobe. This leaves me with no access to the Apps, leaving me without access to my sites. I am aware that Adobe has discontinued support for CS3, but this does way beyond support.
Any of the CS3 forums I have found are old ones that provide no solutions to the situation, and many are locked, so I am unable to post any new queries, hence my attempt to use this forum. Any insight offered here will be greatly appreciated.
The aging activation servers for CS3 were shut down several years ago and CS3 can no longer be activated. This is a user forum and we are volunteers. You might report this to Adobe at https://feedback.photoshop.com/, but I'm not sure anyone can help you activate it since the activation servers do not exist.
Hello, and thanks for the prompt feedback. I am aware of this, as well as the MANY posts of other frustrated users dissatisfied with Adobe's responses to their queries, hence my attempt to go this route.
