I'm getting ready to install a new hard drive (clone) in my laptop to replace a small one. Photoshop CS5 is installed on it. Any precautions to take, such as deactiving from the old hard drive, then reactivating with the new hard drive? Does Adobe get notified that Photoshop has been reinstalled on another device? Will I run into problems with the allowed number of installations? Or is cloning a seamless process as far as Adobe Photoshop and Acrobat are concerned?
Thanks for your help.
You'll want to deactivate Photoshop before making the swap.
I've done similar things several times without deactivating beforehand, and as I recall Photoshop CS4 and I think CS5 needed re-activation at the time. That wasn't too difficult, just a phone call to Adobe Customer Support. But better not to have to do so.
