Owners of Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 can not activate their product due to the activation server shutdown.

If the software title you have purchased is affected by the activation server being shut down, but is not available for download in the previously referenced pages, then please contact our support team at http://www.adobe.com/support/chat/ivrchat.html. Please be aware our support team will not be able to provide assistance for downloading or installing the Creative Suite 2 software.
Chat has a history of given me very wrong info from what seems to be 3rd world newbees .
So unless the chat connnects to someone in the USA who is as knowledgeable as you are on this exact subject. I would prefer to ask you Jeff whenever possible.
