My laptop has crashed and is completely inaccessible. I want to install creative suite on my new laptop but cannot deactivate it on my old device. How can I install the CD on my new laptop?
You can install and activate (purchased) perpetual software two computers of the same type (mac or pc), as long as you only use it on one at a time.
For Deactivation refer:- https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/activate-deactivate-products.html
To load the software on another computer , download and install it as you did on the first computer. Then enter your serial number to activate it.
Hope this information is helpful !!!
