I just got a message stating that my activation limit has been reached as I have installed my software on more than 2 computers. I purchased my software back in January of 2011. I had 2 hard drive crashes, which I notified Adobe about when they happened. I finally got my hard drive situation squared away and have been using the software trouble free for a year. Why all of a sudden am I getting a message saying my activation limit has been reached? I have this software installed on ONE computer, which is my Gateway desktop. I have not installed it on any other PC. So why all of a sudden am I getting this error message? I can't deactivate it on another computer because it isn't INSTALLED on another computer. This is the ONLY computer it is installed on. And, of course, I can't CALL anybody because the help desk closes at 7pm PST and the message conveniently waited until AFTER 7pm PST to pop up. While I was in the middle of working on an image. Anyone else have any experience with this? I am so upset right now. I would think if it was an issue with the subsequent hard drive installations, they would have said something to me A YEAR AGO when I notified them about it while I was in the middle of dealing with my hard drive crashes. Not a year later. Is it possible someone got a hold of my serial number somehow and used it to activate a trial version? And if that is the case, why would Adobe allow it to go through if they knew I already had it installed on a computer? I mean, Facebook makes me jump through hoops if I try to sign in on a device it doesn't recognize...and Facebook is free. I pay $200 for software and there are no security measures in place to make sure no one is downloading unauthorized versions of my software? Do they not notify a customer when someone tries to activate software that has already been activated? I go to Academy of Art University and they gave me the Adobe Master Collection CS5.5, which I downloaded on my Mac. It is a completely separate license number, so I can't understand why that would have anything to do with the PC version of Photoshop that I purchased over a year ago. And even if it does, that would be installation on 2 computers: 1 Mac and 1 PC. The error is stating my software has been installed on MORE than 2 computers. I do not understand what is going on, and it's really annoying that I can't call and ask anyone. Or e-mail someone. Or chat with someone about it. I paid $200 for this software and I'm not having it revoked because someone else screwed up. The only other Adobe Photoshop software I can think of that I have installed is Photoshop Elements 6 that I installed on my old Gateway laptop I can't even tell you how long ago, and that laptop hasn't even been used in about 2 years. Anyone else have any experience with this? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I will not lose my Photoshop I paid $200 for.
