    my problem was I originally installed the CS2 package on my old
    laptop, that computer died so I got a new one and installed it on
    there, when I stared having problems with the new one I uninstalled
    everything on it. When I went to re-install CS2 again, all the programs
    installed and worked fine except InDesign. Whenever I go to open it it
    brings up a dialog box prompting me to enter the serial number, I copy
    it straight form the box and it still says its invalid, when I called
    Adobe tech support they said they no longer support CS2 and basically I
    was on my own.

    Does that help?

    OK, but what is your problem, that does not include Adobe Tech Support (or the lack thereof) ??

J225854e,
I had the same thing happen to me on my laptop the harddrive died and I had to reinstall the CS software again, download the CS to CS2 compatability patch from Adobe, InDesign has several others run them and then restart it should work the link to the wWindows download area is: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=31&platform=Windows sorry I didn't ask if you were using Mac - I do both so I'll usually ask or cross reference.

If you can, try to return it, not really a solution, but will get your money back so you can buy your software elsewhere again and it should work.
Another idea involves calling Adobe, it will take a little time, but since its a serial code, there isn't a ton you can do outside of hacking it(and then what was the point in buying it?) My advice is take the time to call and make sure you get your legit software by calling Adobe.

I have adobe cs3 photoshop extended. program was running fine, then my computer crashed, i have a new computer now, i go to load the photoshop and adobe says that my serial number is no good.


If you have registered your photoshop CS3 Photoshop online, that is why it is saying the number is no good. What I would do is call Adobe, or contact someone there by email, explaining your situation, they should be willing to either send you another serial number or resetting you serial number so that you don't have to get a new serial number.

Adobe photoshop elements 2.0 Plus photoshop album 2.0 serial numbers


Hi there!

As i understand you has lost your serial number and are trying to install Adobe on a new PC.

Have you ever registered your product online? Do you still have the original receipt? If so, call Adobe Customer Support and they would help you.
Next you could call your distributor from whom you bought the package(frys) and ask him for the receipt number or the serial number if he has the copy.
This statement is taken from Adobe site
"If you cannot find your serial number and it is not in our registration database, Adobe can reissue your serial number in certain cases. This applies only to current shipping versions of Adobe branded or Macromedia branded products, and one version prior to the current version. Please contact Adobe Customer Service with a copy of your Proof of Purchase "
