CS3 re-install problem after iMac crash repair

Tags: #problem #re-install

Hi there,

 

my iMac crashed a couple of weeks ago while I was ugrading from CS3 to CS5.5. Basically lost the drive along with all software on the mac. I have the newly repaired iMac back now but can't find the original install CS3 discs, so I can't re-install. I have the original serial numbers however and the $1000 upgrade but no discs. Does anyone know if adobe will re-issue my original software so I can re-install and then use the upgrade? I registered the software when I first purchased it. Tried contacting adobe but was continually let to the forum

 

thanks

    You don't require to install the older version(CS3) to upgrade to CS5.5. The important stuff is the serial number for both the version.

    Download the CS 5.5 application from http://www.adobe.com/downloads/ if you don't have the disk.

    Hi Vital,

     

    Yes, proceed with the installation of CS 5.5. The setup screen would ask for the 5.5 serial numbner and when clicked on next would ask for the qualifying version. That would be your CS3 serial number.
