Suppose I have a single license Master Collection CS5.5 suite. Can I purchase 3 upgrades to CS6(one in Home, second in Office and third on my Laptop)? I know that Upgrade from retail version to Volume Licensing is valid, but can I upgrade under Retail version itself?
Few say that the quantity needs to be same and few say upgrade to multiple quantities are possible. Which is true? Is there any document on Adobe site which shows this?
Not sure about three (3) licenses but your one upgrade license allows you to install on two machines in accordance with Adobe EULA. This is identical to what you must have done when you bought a full version of CS5.5 which was capable of installing on two machines simultaneously.
To install it on your third machine (i.e. in your office), you will need to buy a full version specifically for that purpose. No sure why you need so many licenses when your laptop can be carried everywhere with you in your BacPac ((some call it backpack). You must have a very big staff numbers using Adobe products when alternatives should be explored to get value for money.
My case is different and this resolution will not work for me.
I'm a student turned an Entrepreneur. Trying to reduce my spendings as much as possible. I kept a small business with only 3-5 computers. I cannot afford to purchase all the full versions. Hence can I use my CS5.5 education version product and purchase 3-5 upgrades? I have read that I can upgrade to a Retail version from EDU. Please help!
If not, then I need to search for an alternate company! Adobe products are too costly.
One more query:
Suppose, I purchase 5 quantities of volume licensing, can they be activated on 10 computers(5*2) if only 5 are used at a time and 5 others are used in my employees' Home computers?
[ moved to the licensing forum ]
As you are referring to the Master Collection CS5.5 suite retail version, there is two possible solutions for this:
1. You can just purchase the 3 quantities of upgrade retail version of CS 6.0, so you can install CS 6.0 , 3 quantities using the previous qualifying CS 5.5 Serial number.
Once you download the software, it will ask for the current version serial number that is CS 6.0, once you enter the CS 6.0 serial number click on Next, then it will ask for the previous qualifying version serial number then select Upgrade from CS 5.5, and enter the serial number of CS 5.5, it will install the software and you can enjoy the working with software.
2. You can also go for the Adobe Volume Licensing upgrade option from the retail version,
We do not have spefic document on Adobe site for this but both will work, If you need further assistance and information please contact Adobe Sales team they will assist you better.
If you have query on this or any information please reply back.
Here is the document (http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/end-user-license-agreements-faq.html) that says "Purchasing an upgrade to your product extends your existing license to cover the new version of Adobe software."
When you are a licensed user of 1 quantity, you can not upgrade to 3 quantities.
