You may be able to buy a used copy on eBay or Amazon. But Adobe is not going to offer downloads of a three-year-old program. Sorry.
If that's the case, i have to stick a while longer for the Photo / Image work to my old system.
If your statement reflects the official line from adobe I find that a rather cool behaviour towards the customer.
Nope, I don't speak for Adobe. I'm just saying -- you don't see Apple offering downloads of Mac OS9 or Microsoft offering downloads of Office XP either.
With such good, new product out there -- particularly software that's optimized to work on Windows 7 -- why would you expect them to offer free downloads of software that's three generations old?
Besides, don't you have your original installation discs?
>didn't them store 3 years ago
When you download software, especially large software that you paid for, you should always write the download files to a CD or DVD
@Steve: nope, I don't have org. disks - I did a download and purchase the activation key @ adobe. Silly me I didn't think of storing the file in a backup.
@ John: thanks for the 'advice': I'm alrady kicking myself for not doing so.
@ Nealh: thanks for the link, that was the answer I was looking for.
For me, my question is answerd
For earlier downloads of many Adobe programs, if one logs into their Adobe.com account (not the forums account, which will most likely be different), then their registered/purchased programs should show up. For the download, there might still be URL's available. If not, I would contact Adobe Customer Support (not Technical Support), and inquire about those old download links.
As others have mentioned, when I download a program, I do Copy those download files, just in case. However, with Adobe programs, I cannot recall the last time that I bought a download - I always buy the media, but that is just me.
Good luck, and hope that your download links ARE still available.
