Thank you. I'm afraid downloading softward may be a problem, as I am stuck
using dial-up for my internet connection. Maybe this is something the
computer person that cleaned my computer should do? I am not very computer
You don't have to be particularly computer savvy.
Let the download run overnight. Once it's downloaded. click the download file, follow the prompts and enter the serial number. Done.
Also use the serial number next to the download link. Not the one on your CD case. Common misunderstanding.
Some have forgotten that and complained the install failed.
Thank you for your help, John. Will there be a fee? I don't want a newer
version, just want to be able to use the one I have!
Is the download something that could be done on someone's computer with a
high speed internet connection, then put on a flash drive and put on my
computer? If the download is over 10.0 MB, my server will not support it.
I am going to share all this with the computer consultant that cleaned up my
hard drive and messed things up in the first place. I think she should be
the one to fix the problem she created! The program was working fine before
she did whatever she did to my computer to clean it. Now I get the message:
"Your computer's configuration appears to have changed since the last time
this product was activated. To continue using product, please click OK to
And since that activation process is no longer available - I'm stuck!
Thank you, Gene. I think I will contact my computer consultant before I try
anything. I seem to have a knack for making things worse!
Just to summarize. Adobe has turned off their activation for CS. Your old copy will never work again. Never. It's not your fault. You didn't do anything wrong. Neither did your consultant.
To make up for that Adobe is providing you free of charge a non-activation version of Photoshop CS2. You simply download the installer and the serial number next to it. Run the installer, enter the new serial number and you will once again have a full working version of Photoshop.
That's all there is to it.
Thanks! For both the summary and the pep talk! That's wonderful news that
there will be no charge. You make it sound so simple! But I think I will
wait until my computer person can help me! Just to be safe... :o)
I have really liked this version of PhotoShop CS (8.0). It may be old, but
it works for me!
