I have downloaded a trial of Design Standard cs6 and I would like to activate it as a student version. When I click on the link to buy the software it tells me that I can't buy it in my country. When I go to the specific NZ page and click the link to buy it (this link exists, therefore the software should be available) I am sent back to the US page. Everyone I have contacted at adobe seems to think that the free trial I downloaded came on a disk and won't tell me how to buy a serial number. Is there any way to actually pay for this software? Or should I just give up on Adobe altogether? At this point it's looking like it will take weeks to get hold of legal software.
