I have read all the posts about trying to reactivate CS3. Since the software is sold as a perpetual item and the fault on trying to activate the software is on Adobe's end and since it was an expensive purchase has anyone taken them to small claims court? I believe that this will be my solution to the problem as there is in fact no way to use the product now. I have been very successful in the past with General Motors and another Laptop manufacturer. This is my plan "B"  Thoughts. 

"Our aging activation servers for earlier versions of Acrobat and Creative Suite (CS) applications had to be retired. Without the activation servers, these applications display an activation or connection error when trying to verify a license."

CS3 activation servers are shutdown serveral years ago.  Adobe ended also the access to the activation-free installers and replacement serial numbers.  Customer Care agents cannot help with this matter.  CS3 is officially dead.

 

CS3 is 13 years old and not compatible with modern operating systems.

 

Sorry, but there's no chance to get CS3 working.
