I am still running PS CS on Wondows 7 - it does all that I need. I just cloned my system disk to a SSD and had to make some changes to the virtual memory settings as a result. PS CS now says that the machine configuration has changed and it needs to be re-activated (yawn). However when I try to activate online it says 'sorry, the activation system is not available at this time.' Is this because it's not possible to activate PS CS any longer, or is it genuinely just broken today? I have retired over a period of a couple of hours.
No such thing. CS/ CS2 activation servers are gone.
