          Ok got it fixed....I had the wrong time zone on my computer and it stopped it from activating it....I fixed the time zone and made sure the time was correct and worked like a charm

            Similar but I had the right time zone on my computer and had to change it to the wrong one to activate.


            I am in New Zealand, 12 hours ahead of GMT. Had to take the clock back 21 hours into some US time zone. Fortunately I could reset to local time again once activation was achieved.


            It took far too long on forums and helplines to find this out, and since I suspect this software sells in quite a few countries and time zones beyond the US, I would regard this problem as a bug.


            While grumping here I will add that we pay a premium for the product in New Zealand for Adobe CS stuff (to give the local agents a cut I suppose) but have only very limited phone help -- NZ business hours only.
