Question about PC Desktops

4 Answers

Hi, I have been given the full install CD's for Adobe CS3 Premium by a friend. Unfortunately he lost the 24 digit registration number off the CD's some time ago and also never bothered to register the software with Adobe (I have already contacted them and they can't help). Is there any way to activate this software at all? I have heard about crack codes, but know nothing of how they work or if they would even work in this case. Thanks Jonathan

    Thanks for the reply. Belarc advisor only works for PCs and not Macs, so it looks like the software will never be able to used in my case. At least I didn't pay for it (small mercy).

Viewing the serial number on an Adobe CS3 installed suite is difficult.

If you go to Help menu , then chose System Info and go down, you have see the first 20 characters, but not the complete serial.

You cannot even retrieve the serial from a register, as the code is distributed on several registries entries and crypted.

The only known way to get the serial is by de-activating the software and then re-activating it again.
Your serial number will be displayed, but there is always the risk to lose your original installation, and if you did things wrong, you won't have the original key to re-install this over $1000 piece of software.

Here is Adobe's link for a replacement serial number with a proof of purchase. It will require your friend's personal information then he can transfer ownership to you. Be aware that they do prosecute if they are not the original cds. Adobe products are not and never have been shipped as cd-r and the labels are never pasted on. http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_15292&sliceId=1

I'm sorry, the use of cracks is illegal. The serial number is the only way to use it. If he has it installed on his system he can use a program called belarc advisor to tell him what the key code is that he installed it with.

I have Photoshop CS3 on two PCs, abandoning one and wish to install PS CS3 on a Mac, replacing 2d pc. Can I do this and keep PS3 also on the PC? Same question for Lightroom and the Bridge. Can I share...


No you cannot, because it is not supported when you uninstall it. If you visit Adobe.com. What you might want to do is just download another version on it. Copy it onto a flash drive or CD. And then just place into the other PC.

Also you can share digital files between the PC and your Mac, but not programs, because programs are Server-Side installed. So the only way to share a program is to copy the files(Install Files) from one PC to the Mac, and it should work.

Lost old motherboard TX-Pro II drivers CD


Windows XP has generic video drivers that will work to get you going. Once you get Windows installed, you can go to the device manager and hopefully it will have your components identified. Next go to driverguide.com, they have many older drivers available. If your components are not identified in the device manager, search using your motherboard model number and manufacturer.

Do post here again if you need more help, I may be able to find the drivers if you are not able to.
