Transfer my Adobe Master Collection to my new laptop

How can I install my old Master Collection CS5 from an old laptop to my new one? I have CDs, but my new laptop does not have CD drive. Still have the serial numbers, and I am trying to register my product to Adobe (and download) but it says: product already in use (I guess, installed in my old laptop). How can I install this product to my new laptop?

Thank you.

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,
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 1 : Creative Suite installers won't work on macOS Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave without terminal workarounds. See the help article below.

NOTE 2: Creative Suite cannot run on Catalina or Big Sur. It's too old.


NOTE 3: Legacy Creative Suite is discontinued & unsupported. Use at your own risk.

Registration is one-time only and not required to use the software.

Is your new laptop Windows or Mac? If it's a Mac running Big Sur then, as Nancy says above, you won't be able to install CS5.
