I need help to get my Adobe CS6 Suite to work again
I have just had the transfer all of the following from a back-up drive to my new MAC and I can not get into work on my files,
Adobe Photoshop CS6, Adobe in Design CS6, Adobe Illustrator CS6, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, Adobe Acrobat Pro, I need them to work ASAP from a dead-line project.

After restoring the applications, you'll need to reactivate them with their serial number.
If the old drive crashed and you didn't get to deactivate it and don't have any activations left then
Note that your new Mac likely has Sierra installed as the operating system. CS6 applications reached end of life a few years ago and they are not supported on Sierra, which was released last fall. Some people get CS6 running on Sierra, others don't, but keep in mind that Adobe is no longer issuing updates to make CS6 compatible. It's a crapshoot.
Finally, Reader is free. Just download it from here.
You can't just copy Creative Suite applications from a backup drive, or use Migration Assistant. That will not move all the necessary files to allow them to launch.
You need to download the installers from this location:
But what Barb said is also true so follow her instructions as well.
