      We already own CS3, but wanted to evaluate another machine in the office to see if it would work properly

      After a couple of days, it bombed horribly (can't be 100% certain that it was Adobe's fault - but the system had worked fine for a while and CS3 was the only new software installed on the box)

      After reinstalling Windows, we then tried to reinstall CS3 (which had over 3 weeks of 'trial period' left)

      It refuses to work, saying that it thinks it is an upgrade and wants a serial code and activation for another product before the trial will run

      I know Adobe are trying to be 'clever' with their security - but this is a real pain - especially since the issues are over the holidays and we cannot contact their support team

      The 'trial' of CS3 seems to have bene plagued with issues (including the need for a registry hack from punters on occassion) and I am sure that there must be a change of management/psychology in advance of the next launch

      Does anyone know if it is possible to 'pick up where you left off' with an evaluation of CS3 - after it (appears to have) bombed the test system horribly ?
