It is some years since I purchased CS2 for my business but had registered with Adobe and recorded my Serial Number within my account.
The PC on which CS2 has been running for all that time has just died and I have had to replace it. But I can't find the CS2 discs and so I have looked online for a copy of CS2 that I can download - shouldn't be any legal issues as I own a licence?
anyway I found what appeared to be a legitimate download and put it onto my PC. The welcome screen asks whether I want to load the 30day demo or whether I have a licence and, if so, requires the serial number. So I go onto my Adobe account, copy the serail number into the welcome screen and immediately receive the message 'Serial Number Invalid'. The speed of this respone suggests to me that the 'Serail Number Invalid' check is being done locally on my PC rather than my contacting Adobe. Could it be that my Serail Number is a UK one and the program that I have dowloaded is rejecting the format?
How can I obtain a UK copy of CS2 that will accept the Serial Number recorded on my Adobe account? I even have my original purchase receipt for the software and so can prove ownership.
Thanks in anticipation.
Yes, there are different ones for different regions and different licensing models and they all have different serial number ranges, but which one fits your needs is really impossible to tell if you haven't made any note of it or at least the invoice that lists the package code. So rather than spending endless days searching and downloading Mexican, Japanese or whatever installers from shady sites on the Internet that will not help you at all, do the sensible thing: call your local support, have them tell you which installer you need based on your serial, then ask around locally at companies that may use Adobe products, on your hometown's Facebook group or whatever if someoen would be willing to borrow his install media/ make a copy....
