it seems that adobe wants people to by there over priced products at every upgrade. because i was unable to deactivate my pscs2 be for doing a system restore ia'm now unable to reactivate the program. i successfuly transfered the software from a win xp computer to a win 7 computer and had it work great for six years, adobe tech support claims if will only work on win xp & vista. anyone out there now of a solution?
Adobe decommissioned the CS2 activation server but provided a free solution:
You have to download a special version of CS2 that does not require activation but needs the new serial number they also provide.
Google "download adobe Photoshop CS2" if the following link doesn't give you access immediately:
Note that the CS2 version you have on your computer will never work again; the new serial number does you no good on that one.
Incidentally, I'm a user just like you, I don't work for Adobe. These are user to user forums, not a channel to address Adobe.
