You only need to deactivate the software on the old machine. This is done by opening one of the applications and choosing Help -> Deactivate. Doing this frees up your second activation and make it available for your new machine.
it's ok CS6 with yosemite ?
I have almost the same issue. The difference is that my previous laptop got stolen. I'm already using my new one with a new installation of CS6. But now CS6 thinks it's a trail version, with 8 days left. My original activation codes aren't accepted.
Do you have an advise for this situation?
ps. i tried opening a customers case with adobe, but that website seems to be down. (to be found only after antering all your information . And trying it twice doesn't help...)
i have full version, the problem isn't mavericks but cs6 with retina display
First contact Adobe support thru chat and ask them to reset your activations. That way, in case you have two already tied up they can be freed and available for use again.
For the link below click the Still Need Help? option in the blue area at the bottom and choose the chat option...

If you continue to have a problem, make sure you are trying to install the right software for the serial number. If you own a suite you cannot install an individual application using the same serial number, and vice versa.
Thank you for your reply.
Contacting support thru chat worked good and i was helped very well.It is not yet resolved for me, but at least i understand why it's not working.
In my case the issue is that my serial number expired (2 months ago, in this case).
Adobe support said this is not usual for a Adobe product. I am reffered to my reseller to have them provide me with a valid serial number.
