I'm trying to deactivate CS3 on an old computer so i can use it on a different computer. I do not have that option help->deactivate in any of the apps therefore i can't see a way to deactivate it. Via adobe chat, they stated i have a volume license key if that means anything but they could not be of much help and they referred me to the forums, any help is appreciated.
You need to contact the volume licensing folks to see what your options are.
