Adobe disappoints… again.
Pressured into purchasing CS upgrades we don't need, other than being able to open the files for printing. Finally gave in and decided to upgrade all four of our licenses.
Was told $2500 qualified for volume discount. NOT! Purchase really needs to be $2700. And that entitles you to a $6 discount per license. Not even 1%. Yippie.
Then, after ordering Friday afternoon PST… still no links provided for download yet. Must wait for some sort of review and approval, which it now appears probably won’t happen until Monday. Who, other than adobe, fails to let you download immediately?
So instead of having the weekend to download many GB of upgrades, and get installed during off-hours… we instead need to consume bandwidth during business hours, and waste time installing during business hours.
Does anyone know of any link to be able to download CS5.5 Design Premium, and CS5.5 Production Premium? I understand we will not be able to install without KEYS... but at least we could get the estimated 20 hours of downloading out of the way.
You can install without keys and then just run in trial mode for 30 days. Refer to these procedures, if no downloads are available directly. They still might appear MIA, though, since in preparation for the launch of CS6 distribution on Monday servers may be offline for a while.
Kopy-Rite depending on when you purchased your volume license software I have great news you may qualify for an upgrade to Creative Suite 6! Please review Upgrade policy after product announcement - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/upgrade-policy-product-announcement.html to see if you qualify.
Also since you purchased a volume license it will be available at https://licensing.adobe.com. You can find additional details regarding utilizing the site at Use the Adobe Volume Licensing site - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/volume-licensing-site.html.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions regarding either of these articles.
