in 2006 I purchased a cs2. I used it for a couple of years, got out of the industry and then changed my computer. So I am gradually getting back into things, and went to reinstall my cs2. Invalid Serial number. What!!!??? How does a serial number go from valid to invalid? What do I have to do to get things into working order?
Have the disk, can't remember where I bought it. Loading on a windows 7. Warning at activation was just an error code. Talked to Adobe, was told the serial number was invalid, that they could tell me nothing more.
Why would the serial number go from being good to not good? I thought a serial number was a serial number.
If a serial number has been relased into the wild (read internet hacking sites), then Adobe will invalidate the serial number. This may not be your problem though. CS 2 is probably so old that it or the licensing system may not work properly under Windows 7 especially if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows 7. New computers frequently require new software.
