Windows 7 reinstall and Creative Cloud app downloads

Aug 6, 2012 7:54 AM

I recent had a custom computer built for Photoshop and Premiere Pro.  I purchased Creative Cloud and had downloaded Photoshop CS6, Lightroom 4, Premiere Pro CS6 and AfterEffects.  Over this weekend, Windows 7 Professional began to fail and now it has to be reinstalled on the Boot Drive - erasing all programs already on that drive, including the four Creative Cloud apps I downloaded. 


My question is:  When the new Windows reinstall reformats the C: Drive and wipes it clean, can I re-download the Creative Cloud apps to the same computer without it registering as another download destination?  Creative Cloud lets be put the apps on two computers, but this will be the same as the original.  How do I get it to register so that I don't use up the second destination?

    Hi Rcheek6,


    Yeah, that should work okay. If for some reason you attempt to activate on too many computers it gives you an option to "De-activate All". That may not even be required here.


    Hope that helps,
