Hi, I just purchased Premiere and Photoshop Elements 2022 PC from Very.co.uk in the Black Friday sale. The adobe site accepted the acctivation code, but when I download the software from the link, I'm sent the Mac DMG files.

Simon

This is a user forum and there is nothing that can be done here.  

 

If it were me, I would go to the retailer and see if there is a solution.   It appears they sold you the wrong product.

 

If that does not work you can try an online chat with Adobe techs:  https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen

You need to contact the vendor.

If you were given a Mac serial number too it wont work on a PC.

Instead, I downloaded the PC trial versions and clicked the option to active. The serial numbers I was sent did work and have now registered on my account as purchased products. So the activation code took me to the wrong page, but the serial numbers worked.

 

Hopefully this might help others that encounter the same problem. 

 

Thanks for taking time to respond.
