You do know that PM was discontinued more than 10 years ago, and the last OS known to work relibly with it is XP?
but how to to activate this product. I have perpetual licence.
i want to use this product.
Actually PageMaker was made many years before products needed activation. You just enter your serial number where requested.
Thanks for sharing the files. Adobe use the words "register" and "activate" to mean two different things, which you are mixing up.
"Register" means to send your details to Adobe so that you get mailings, and you are in their records. It has no connection to making the software work, or be licensed. Your messages talk about this.
"Activate" means to connect to Adobe, check the license, and decide whether or not you can use the software, then make the software live. Your messages do not talk about this, and as I said PageMaker is far to old to do this.
Few of us can remember anything useful about PageMaker, but I have an idea, a possibility. Two actually.
1. Make sure you install from your original disks, not from a download, because the download might just be a demo.
2. Perhaps when you install you get - during the install - a choice of demo or enter serial number. Perhaps you chose demo and it's TOO LATE to change. More recent software can be changed later, perhaps not with this fossil.
