I am trying to reinstall CS2 on a new computer. I have the installation files (the same ones available online) and I have my original serial number from when I purchased it. The installer gets stuck at "Please insert CD 2 to continue installation.
CS2 + Acrobat 7 + Audition 3 (AND EARLIER) Activation Server is gone, so read below
You MUST use the special version and serial number on the page, not your original disc or serial number
Here's how to clear the "Insert CD2" hurdle:
With the English version of the software the file CreativeSuiteCS2Disc2 extracts to C:\Creative Suite\Adobe Creative Suite 2.0\. CreativeSuiteCS2Disc1 and CreativeSuiteCS2Disc3 both extract to C:\Creative Suite CS2\Adobe Creative Suite 2.0\.
If you copy the contents of the C:\Creative Suite\Adobe Creative Suite 2.0\ folder to the C:\Creative Suite CS2\Adobe Creative Suite 2.0\ folder you will no longer be prompted to insert disc two.
