I bought Adobe CS6 when I was in Design School in 2012. Last year I decided to try Creative Cloud and signed up for it, downloaded the programs, etc. Last month I realized I couldn't afford it anymore and cancelled my Creative Cloud subscription. I knew I could still use CS6 free of charge... or so I thought.
A few days ago I tried to open Photoshop and the error message I got was "Go to the Subscription Manager to renew your subscription for Creative Cloud and continue using your product uninterrupted."
But I didn't think I needed a CC subscription to use my (already bought and paid for) CS6 products?
Same thing happens when I try to open InDesign and Illustrator CS6.
Details: I use a MacBook Pro 2012.
Yon may need to uninstall Adobe software and then use Adobe cleaner to wipe-out all traces of your subscription. Then install CS6 using your Perpetual serial number. Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems
The CS6 version in the creative cloud is and updated CS6 version its not the same version as perpetual CS6, Creative cloud version of CS6 is Photoshop extended version 13.1.2 Mac and PC, The perpetual versions of CS6 are CS6 version 126.96.36.199 Windows and CS6 Version 13.0.6 Mac. The Perpetual licences are either for Photoshop Extended or Standard. The Code is the same for Extended and Standard. What features are enabled is a function of your licence key.
Be sure to use CS6 menu Help>Updated foe version 13.0.0 is very buggy. You need CS6 13.0.0 to be updated to version 188.8.131.52 or 13.0.6
Thanks so much for the reply! I'll give that a try.
