I'm confused. You say you want to "license" CS6. What exactly does that mean?
Have you purchased it? Have you subscribed to Creative Cloud?
In either event a CS5.5 serial will not activate CS6. If you want the perpetual version you'll need to buy it and get a new serial number. If you subscribe to Creative Cloud, you'll sign in with your Adobe ID.
Thanks for your reply, and sorry for the confusion. I think the problem is that because I have an education version, I am not eligible for use of it to upgrade to the Creative Cloud version of CS6, so maybe that is why the serial no for my software was rejected. I was going through the window that asks you to subscribe when your trial period runs out in CS6. It asks for a serial no, so I gave the CS5.5 one, thinking I would then be able to go through to pay for the new one.

You need to buy your subscription first, then enter the serial number you receive, I think. I believe there is a discount still available for CS5.5 users, and as far as I know the eduction version would not be disqualified.
Actually, and Bob or someone else will probably confirm this, if you are subscribing to the cloud I don't think you even need a serial number for CS6. Cloud subscriptions use your Adobe ID for authentication.
Nobody reads post 1.
I read it, then I started babbling.
The OP didn't seem to understand the need to spend the money before trying to enter a number, though.
Thanks Peter, will look into it further.
