Clean Upgrade Installation

Jul 22, 2012 7:07 PM

I bought my original copy of Photoshop many years ago (Version 3.0). I later upgraded to version 5.0 and then again later to version CS.


Due to a hard drive crash, I now need to do a fresh install. My upgrade copy of CS requests proof of my ownership of 5.0. I insert my "upgrade 5.0" CD and it is promptly rejected. I do have my original "full version" 3.0 floppies, but CS requests proof of a "full" version of 5.0 which I never had since my 5.0 was an upgrade from 3.0.


How does one fix this problem? Can I do a fresh install of my CS upgade?

    All you need is the s/n of the qualifying product.  In this case looks like PS5.
