Most versions of photoshop elements 6 don't have activation and if yours did, you'd probaly get a different message like that you have pse 6
activated on two other computers.
There are 24 numbers in the serial plus the dashes between each set of four numbers, so you would type
(the X's below represent numbers)
I forgot to add the number should be on sticker on back of the dvd case that says serial number.
Yes I do have the orginal DVD case and the numbers are clear. I assumed, like you, that I must've made a mistake in entering the 24 numbers. After re-entering them three times I concluded that isn't the problem.
Do I neeed to contact Adobe. If so, how. Or is there something else that I shouild try??
Actually, what I did was to register my copy of PsE 6 on my laptop, then uninstalled PsE 6 on my desktop, and reinstalled.
I don't know what the critical step(s) was, but it now accepted my serial number and is working properly.
Thanks for your help.
