Was your version of Fireworks 8 a standalone version or part
of a bundle?
I had the same issue in that I bought the Mac version of
upgrade thinking it'd upgrade my version of Fireworks MX 2004
which was part
of a MX 2004 Studio Bundle. Wrong. The serial number didn't
I got in touch with Adobe support who asked me if I'd read
versions upgrade info on the web site. Of course I had and it
whatsoever about not being able to upgrade a version of
Fireworks in a
bundled suite. They admitted this was badly written and
should have a line
or two explaining bundled versions cannot be upgraded.
To cut to the chase I wasn't eligible for an upgrade and I
had to return the
box back to Adobe which I will get refunded for.
Unfortunately I had to
purchase the full version of Fireworks CS3 which now, at
almost £300, after
postage, doesn't look like too good a deal anymore.
In short, you're not eligible for the upgrade if your version
was part of a previous bundle from Macromedia. However if you
have got a
standalone version which goes back three versions including
Fireworks 8 you
should be OK. If you're having problems 'jhjdk' I suggest you
get on to
Adobe Tech and sound them out.
Hope this helps
