Hello, I have an old version of Creative Suite, CS4. For the amount that I use it, it works great and fits my needs so do not need the new version with the bells and whistles. I need to download it and transfer my license to my new computer, which does not have a CD drive (where all the original download files are). Is there a digital copy of the CS4 download files?

Thanks

No... Adobe has removed all public downloads of CS6 and earlier

 

Buy a USB drive... should be less than $30 on Amazon

 

That is, of course, IF your new computer has a compatible operating system

 

Mac Catalina absolutely will NOT allow that old software

 

Two ideas that MAY work to install and/or run old programs in Windows 10
-RIGHT click the program icon or EXE and select a compatibility mode in the pop up option window
-and/or select Run as Administrator to assign FULL Windows permissions
