I am a CC Photoshop subscriber running an I Mac. I wish to install CS (8) on an old Windows computer running XP pro. I have the original installation disk and it appears to install ok. I add the serial number and then get into the authorization round about and seem totally unable to get in contact with Adobe to resolve this matter. I get to their chat service but it does not respond and the telephone activation is discontinued. Auto activation does not work either. It is driving me mad.
The activation servers for CS and CS2 have been shut down.
Adobe has provided a non-activation version of CS2 as a replacement.
First uninstall the old version of CS, then download and install CS2 from here:
Do not use your old serial, use the one that is provided next to the download.
