CS6 has two options when installing, try or enter serial number.
How do you buy a serial number?
I would like to keep it going a little longer after the beta expires and convert it to a full retail version.
Serial numbers won't be available until CS6 ships, which is planned for the Spring. When the time comes, you'll be able to purchase the full version. The beta will expire shortly after CS6 ships.
We are thrilled that you like the CS6 beta and are ready to buy. Unfortunately it has not been released yet. If you would like to be notified when it is available, go to this link and enter your information:
