Do you still have the registration code (or have it registered by Adobe)?
Ultimately, you may have to buy it second hand. If so, you must be completely certain that you get a legal version, one that has not been used a the basis for an upgrade.
I hope someone has a more hopeful answer.
I did purchase it through Adobe, but I don't have the registration code any longer. I am not sure if I registered it with Adobe, I will have to check on that.
Worst case senario, I will have to force myself to learn Dreamweaver :-(
Thanks for your advice,
You are welcome, Barbara.
I still hope someone will offer a more pleasant alternative.
Adobe giving it (CS2 version) away for free at http://www.adobe.com/downloads/cs2_downloads/index.html
Update patch available at http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=26&platform =Mac
Hope this helps
The assumed offer of free CS2 is contrary to what Adobe staff state elsewhere in these forums.
This thread tells about the activation option for CS2 applications, meant for present legal owners:
And this link holds the instruction:
As it appears from this thread, there may be a similar activation issue with GoLive 9, which is probably the one you have:
GoLive is unmentioned in the thread, but it may be included in the instruction.
I have alerted Adobe staff about your issue, and I hope someone will post in this thread.
Good news, after tearing through all of my "stuff" for the past week I did find the CS2 disks I thought I had thrown away ... Yah!!
I will add CS2 to my laptop for emergencies, as it had 10.6.8. I would LOVE to have the GoLive 9, which sounds like it would work with 10.8.2. Like Suzanne, I have a terrible time understanding Dreamweaver. I do NOT like it. I prefer Go Live by far.
I would pay for a working version of GL9, if it was guaranteed to work on Mt Lion.
I want to Thank everyone for all of your wonderful help. It has exceeded my expectations :-)
Congratulations with the happy ending, Barbara.
Registration with Adobe may serve as an external backup of your registration codes (for all your applications), which would make it easier to recover from a worse case than the one you have just encountered.
That is how I feel as well, I was very upset that Adobe dropped Go Live altogether as it had a much beter live like view of websites as you design them whereas Dreamweaver always looked a little more broken but then it was originally macromedia that made dreamweaver so it never had that Adobe ease of use integrated until much later and still seams a little user unfriendly when it comes to site structure, but at least it is more stable than GoLive.
