i tried to install InDesign CS2 Upgrade from the original CD-Rom on a new PC with WIN7 64-bit.
To activate the installation I used the serial number from the version 1.0 IGP100R7012137-635 from the original register card from InDesign 1.0.
This combination was used since any years on my old XP-PC and now I want to use it on the new system.
What happened: InDesign CS2 said during the installation process: this serial no. IGP100R7012137-635 is not an InDesing serial no.
I contacted Adobe via chat and they said, I need an InDesign CS2 version without need for activation, because Adobe killed the server for this function because of technical reasons.
My question: from where can I get these InDesign CS2 version without need for activation?
The serial number from my CS2 InDesign is: Deleted by moderator.
Who can help or knows an easier solution?
Thank you in advance for help!
NEVER post a serial number on a public forum and be aware that CS2 is totally unsupported on Windows 7 and will be even worse on a 64 bit system. Heed the warning on that page:
Adobe does not support CS2 applications, which were released more than seven years ago. Adobe strongly advises against running unsupported and outdated software.
I installed CS2 on the Windows XP virtual machine you can download for Win7 pro or Ultimate. Seems to work fine there, but you may have trouble if you install directly on Win 7. At the very least you should choose XP compatibility mode.
