3rd device for PS CS5

Tags: #cs5 #ps #problems #deactivate

I have activated PS CS5 on my home computer and laptop but now have a 2nd desktop at my studio. I deactivated the laptop and installed PS CS5 on my new desktop, however whenever I run Photoshop on my new system it says "already activated on 2 computers". The laptop says it is deactivated.  Is it possible to download on 3 devices to eliminate this problem and avoid having to uninstall on 1 of the devices and reload on another when either at studio, traveling, or home?

    you can download on 3 devices but i don't see how that is going to eliminate your current problem.  you still can only activate it on 2 devices at any one time.


    you should be able to deactivate any one of the 3 three you want and activate on any of the two you want (assuming they all have the same os).  if you are unable to do that, you should contact adobe support:
