have PageMaker 5.0 and have a serial number for it. upgraded to 6.0 then to 6.5.
when 6.5 was launched, clicked on Help > About PageMaker 6.5, it shows the serial number for 5.0.
was working for more than 10years... was advised to uninstall then reinstall the software... directly installed 6.5 and entered the serial number that we have for 5.0 but prompted that the serial number is invalid...
just curious... does 6.0 and 6.5 not have their own serial number?
IIRC, the upgrades kept the old serial numbers.
i know all adobe software upgrades has their own serial number.
do you know why pagemaker keeps the old serial number? is there something with it or is it with the way it was setup? you know? just curious...
PM used the old serial number. Upgrades did not come with new numbers...they looked for the old version during the install.
Why are using that old dinosaur anyway. It's a dead end application.
