We are upgrading one of our workstations and the user has PS CS2 installed.
Rather than upgrade to a newer version, and because CS2 is sufficient for our fairly simple needs I attempted to install it on the new Windows 8.1 system.
The software is compatible with this OS, but when attempting to activate I got a message that the activation servers for this software are no longer available. Upon visiting Adobe.com I found that you can download a copy of CS2 and use the serial number found on the case and activate the software that way.....
...only I can't! When try to use the serial number I have used in the past, the software says it's not valid.
So I am a bit stuck now. I have software that I can longer use, and find out how to contact Adobe to sort this is a task in itself. I suspect they will just feed me the "no-longer supported" line anyway.
Am I missing something? Anybody else came across this problem?
Oh... hang on those dowloads all have specific serial numbers!
I really should read things properly.
You have to use the serial number supplied by Adobe on the download site.
I'm having a problem reactivating PSCS2 but I can't even get as far as Footix2. I can't change the country to UK, it's stuck in United States and I then have to choose a state!
What's happening? Surely you can't only reactivate Photoshop CS2 if you live in the US?
