I have Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium windows. It is brand new and it is student edition. I didn't use my product and didn't register it. I recently bought a mac, so I can't use my product on it. Also, I'm not eligible to swap my product with mac version and I don't want to upgrade it. So, I'm trying to find a way to use my product on my mac. Can I sell my product's serial number? I can't sell the product it self because I'm outside the US. What can I do to use my product? Thanks…
Unless you install Windows on that Mac, no. You cannot sell a student version but you can use it to upgrade to CS6 or to move to Creative Cloud.
I know you said you didn’t want to but those are you ONLY choices.
As Bob said, upgrading is inevitable, then you can make a platform switch. If you're stil la student and you purchased your suite more than a year ago, you can also simply buy a current suite for S&T pricing. For everything else refer to this:
Bob said unless you want to run Windows on your Mac. That is a reasonable choice: Run Boot Camp, Parallels or other program to allow you to run Windows on your Mac. Windows runs well on modern Mac hardware except for a Mac with a Retina Display.
