I have a Photoshop CS3 Extended license that I purchased through university. This was purchased as a license rather than a subscription monthly or yearly.
Up till recently, I have been working fine with this. However unfortunately my HDD failed on my previous laptop. Luckily I managed to retrieve the license key, however this will not allow me to activate on my new laptop. I try to activate over the internet (the license is accepted) but this then advises Activation - No Connection. I am online as am able to access this forum.
I have tried activating over the phone, however when I call through this confirms they no longer support activation via phone and to go to this website: Activate and deactivate Adobe products
I have followed this through but this says to upgrade to the latest CC version which only lasts a month on the "promotional offer" and past this point I would have to continue payments. As I have a full license already paid for I do not want to go down this route.
Please can someone help with this
If you had search this forum. You would have found the answer and be using CS3 now. Adobe retired the CS3 Activation servers and has made a download for CS3 you can get and install. You need need Adobe download link. You will need to enter your CS3 serial to be able to get the download. Activation or connection error when starting CS3 or Acrobat 8
