Question about Adobe InDesign CS2 for Mac

1 Answer

I've had CS2 installed on my Mac for at least two

I've had CS2 installed on my MacBook Pro OS 10.4.11 for at least two years without any problem. Suddenly it's asking for my serial number to open InDesign, but when I enter the legitimate serial number it says it's not valid and won't let me access the program(s). When I try to reinstall from the CDs (which are an upgrade), it asks for the CS serial number, which I no longer have. What can I do???? Please help!

It is asking for the original serial number and if you still have the install disks, should be with your documentation.
If you can't find it, a new version will be required.
Why not go back in time when it worked and use the time machine to recover the old system.

The best way is to create a PDF in InDesign, then Draw will see every aspect (most of the time) of your original document. Hope this will FixYa... if not, please let us know.

SOURCE: Adobe InDesign CS2 serial number invalid

You may have purchased a pirated copy of the software. You need to contact Adobe, and they will help you to determine the validity of your software purchase, and get you a new serial number or re-activate your current one.

If you go to Adobe Customer Support: CLICK HERE
... you can select the pop-up which offers Live Chat Support. They are very thorough and very helpful.

In Design CS 1 won't open. the error message reads as follows: "In Design Cannot verify your serial number, please reinstall." I just spent about 30 minutes on the phone and the adobe knowledgebase and obviously they won't be helping with such an "old" version. I thought you might be able to enlighten me.

Thanks,
Braven

Try first Uninstalling the program from control panel and reinstalling the Adobe suite after restarting the computer.

If it did not work, try doing a system restore to some times ago, before you had the problem , then reinstall CS2

If you still have problems, it may be an operative system problem.

Help i want to reformat my Macbook pro laptop which uses Mac OS 10.9.2 to Mac OS mavericks


the current OS version available for download is Yosemite 10.10.5
therefore if you wanna instal the older Maverick you need to find it as a torrent file and download it.
The file is around 5.3GB and arrives as a self-installer app in your Applications directory, if you want to install Mavericks on other Macs without having to re-download it on each machine, you will need to copy that installer outside of Applications before attempting the installation, otherwise the self-installer will remove itself upon completion.

How to upgrade my macbook pro to Yosemite


Apple has made this feature free, and fairly simple. You should first make sure you have a backup of your hard drive on an external drive (easiest to complete with the TimeMachine feature of your Macbook Pro).

  • Open the App Store app and select the Featured or Top Charts tab. You can search for Yosemite, although Top Charts will usually list it as #1 in the Top Free apps.

  • Click on the Download button for Yosemite wherever it appears (either in the search list, or in Top Charts). Follow the prompts.

  • Depending on your connection speed and the specs of your macbook pro, the installation will take one to four hours.
    • Of course, you will have to have an Apple ID to download anything from the App Store.
    • If you don't have an Apple ID and don't know how to get one, please ask another question on FIXYA.

I can not update my mac to 10.9


Hard to say without knowing exactly what Mac you have and what specs, but most likely reason would be your system doesn't meet the requirements (From Apple support site) - To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:
  • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
  • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch or 17-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or later)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)
Your Mac also needs:
  • OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed
  • 2 GB or more of memory
  • 8 GB or more of available space

Trouble shooting new os 10.4 tiger installation on mac pro


You sure you got the original gray label install discs for this computer? Sometimes people stick gray discs in with the computers and they are not specific for that model.  The Macbook Pro ships with Tiger 10.4.6
Borrow a black label Tiger retail disc from someone and install your OS that way.

Wont install on Mac i use leopard and it states it needs classic envinroment


"In any case, you will not be able to use the Classic Environment in any OS with your MacBook Pro. The Classic Environment functions only on PowerPC-based Macs, of which the MacBook Pro (and all other currently sold Macs) is not. Mac OS 9 was never designed for Intel Macs, and cannot run on them without full PowerPC hardware emulation."

Hope it helps
