Hello to all forum members.
I use PSE 7 and PE 7 for 3 Years under Windows Vista.
I got a new PC running on Win7 and I would like to transfer both applications.
The plan was to download the applications as a test version, deactivate the versions on my old PC and re-activate them on my new one.
But for downloads of test version I'm always referred to Version 10.
I really would like to stick to Version 7. I'm used to it and it fits my porposes just fine.
Has anyone any idea, where I could download the Installation files?
I didn't them store 3 years ago, I assumed for that purchas price,the will be stored for members @ the adobe server for longer than 3 years ...
If anyone can give me advice, it will be most appreciated.
I'm writing to the forum, because in my attempt to contact the adobe service via e-mail I got utterly lost.
I have the impression, that's discouraged by adobe if not downright impossible.
If that's the case, i have to stick a while longer for the Photo / Image work to my old system.
If your statement reflects the official line from adobe I find that a rather cool behaviour towards the customer.
Nope, I don't speak for Adobe. I'm just saying -- you don't see Apple offering downloads of Mac OS9 or Microsoft offering downloads of Office XP either.
With such good, new product out there -- particularly software that's optimized to work on Windows 7 -- why would you expect them to offer free downloads of software that's three generations old?
Besides, don't you have your original installation discs?
@Steve: nope, I don't have org. disks - I did a download and purchase the activation key @ adobe. Silly me I didn't think of storing the file in a backup.
@ John: thanks for the 'advice': I'm alrady kicking myself for not doing so.
@ Nealh: thanks for the link, that was the answer I was looking for.
For me, my question is answerd
For earlier downloads of many Adobe programs, if one logs into their Adobe.com account (not the forums account, which will most likely be different), then their registered/purchased programs should show up. For the download, there might still be URL's available. If not, I would contact Adobe Customer Support (not Technical Support), and inquire about those old download links.
As others have mentioned, when I download a program, I do Copy those download files, just in case. However, with Adobe programs, I cannot recall the last time that I bought a download - I always buy the media, but that is just me.
Good luck, and hope that your download links ARE still available.
