HELP!!!        I LOST MY INSTALL CD PHOTOSHOP CS2 !!!

Jan 26, 2009 5:14 AM

Dear reader,

I've just reinstalled Windows on my PC, and have to reinstall photoshop CS2 as well. But, I've lost my install disc. I've called Adobe to get a new install disc, but they only have CS3 and up :(

Is there anyone who can copy the CD for me, because as Adobe said, this would the only option left, otherwise I must upgrade my license to CS4 :-(

Thank u! Please let me know

    Adobe advised you to have someone copy their disk and send it to you?

    Perfectly legal as long as no serial number accompanies it. No different
    than had he made that backup copy himself.

    That said, I can't help, I only have suite disks.

    there are some sites on the internet that sell software for <ahem> backup purposes where you might be able to pick up a disk. just don't use the accompanying serial #.

    Not that I wouldn't trust. Who knows what type of nasties are added to
    the code.

    How do you lose something you paid $700 for?

    That's no help, Buko. I'm sure Matheos is already painfully aware to
    backup the software next time.

    To answer Buko's less than helpful post...

    As a legitimate license holder that just needs the media, I'd second Dave's suggestion - - but I would not recommend those paid sites when there are other places to get it for free. Wherever you find a copy (even if from a good Samaritan on this forum), be certain to run a full scan for nasty bugaboos on the media and then again on your system after install.

    Somewhere I have the download version of the CS2 trial which, if memory serves, is the full version and can be unlocked with a SN. Anyone know for sure?

    And as far as the backup, you just need to copy the CD and *keep track of it*.

    Google "Photoshop CS2 Trial" and you may find an installer that will work...

    On the Mac side the CS2 trial could not be made legit with a serial don't no if that's true with the windows side. I was under the impression this was a new feature with CS4 possibly CS3.

    Out of curiosity I just popped into ftp.adobe.com (Google FileZilla if you need a free ftp client). Log in as anonymous and in the /pub/adobe/Photoshop/win/cs2 folder you'll find all the CS2 trial versions.

    (EDIT: I just noticed Jim's post.. he beat me to it..)
