It's actually CS6 extended (student edition), and it suddenly became the trial version. I couldn't find the problem with it originally, and now it won't even let me open the program! It opens up the trial box, which I close, and it won't open t he application.
I did some research, and it had something to do with the latest update which I just took and installed. However, it still isn't working.
I do a lot of my work in this program, and it would be great to get it back up and running again. I am running it on Windows 7.
Also, we just recently moved, so I don't know where the box is to find the serial number. I do have it installed on the other computer, but I prefer to use it on this computer.
I have also looked into this, and cannot find the serial number in the other computer. I have tried opening the registry edit via run, but I wasn't able to locate the serial number. (The instructions I found for this were for XP, so it was a little different)
Does anybody know how to find the serial number within your computer once it's already installed?
You are running into a permission problem. Google something like "PS reverts to trial version" and you will see a lot of hits.
It it happens each time you open PS, then start PS by right clicking on icon, then doing what is needed to change to regular version. It should stay that way.
