There is only one serial number that will work - the one next to the download.
If you have the original CS2 installed, you should uninstall it before installing the downloaded version.
the official legal version
You may already know this, but these CS2 downloads can only be used legally if you already own a licence for CS2 - i.e. you bought it in the past. Adobe has provided these downloads and serial numbers because the activation servers for CS2 are no longer running.
on a previous computer I was able to download CS2 from the same page and and use the serial number adjacent and it worked fine.
Now on a new computer it will not accept the same official serial number displayed next to the download
I'm sorry, but I have no idea why the serial # isn't accepted.
If you're typing in the number, errors can happen, try copy & paste instead.
Thanks for asking and reply. I was also facing the same issue.
is your new computer a Mac? CS2 will not run on an Intel based Mac at all-maybe it just looks like the serial isn't being accepted? It should however run fine on Windows with Intel processors.
I have the same problem. The files are downloaded and starting to install. I copied the serial number for CS2 from my account details but the system refused to accept it. How do we re-install CS2 on our new PC in these circumstances?

That won't work, you have to use the serial number next to the download on this page:
And you have to uninstall the old version before installing the new version you downloaded.
Nope, that was refused as well!
