How do you deactivate software license from a totally dead computer in order to activate it on the replacement computer?
Exactly my question -- both activated computers are completely dead and won't boot up. Did you try calling, and did it cost anything? I think I saw on the site that a call cost $39, which is unbelievable to me. Please let me know your results -- thanks so much!
Vanessa.....haven't had success yet in connecting with Adobe.......claim due to release of new version of Creative Suites long waits for customer service on the phone. Very frustrating as I need to get things up and running while on the road! Hope you have better success.
I'm new to this stuff. I have the same problem. 2 computers dead with Elements 9 on them. Can't deactivate the software on those computers. I have two new computers and you know the problem. Where is this "chat"? How do I get to it?
Thanks for the info. It took care of the problem.

I have had 2 chat sessions (including one with Manish) and 2 extremely long telephone conversations with Adobe customer support and Adobe technical support with no resolution to determine why I cannot deactivate the Dreamweaver CS4 program from my dead computer in order to activate it on a new one. A "case" was opened for this problem on November 6; I had to submit the receipt of purchase and all details of the situation. There has been no response from Adobe since that time and no way to contact any support rep about it other than to sit on the 30 minute queue again. Every rep I get merely repeats the information in the script and passes me to another department. This is severely impacting my ability to work. I am trapped in Adobe support hell!
