My license entitles me to install Adobe CS3 on two systems. So, I had it on my desktop and laptop. I recently sold my laptop, and reformatted the hard drive. But, I forgot to deactivate CS3 before doing so. Now I want to install it on my newer laptop, but the activation screen is telling me I've reached the number of activations.
So, my question is... How do I deactivate a computer that I no longer own?
You will need to activate by phone, and explain what has happened. I had the issue two weeks ago after replacing a failed laptop hard drive.
Just look for the 'other activation options' when you go through the activation process.
