How do I activate/download my Adobe Creative Suite onto a new macbook? My previous computer and download was for Windows on a Dell.

The answer depends on which version of Creative Suite.
Either
install Windows on your Mac using Bootcamp or Parallels then install Creative Suite in the Windows Virtual Machine on your Mac.
Or, if you want to install natively on your Mac:
If CS6 then you can apply to Adobe for a platform swap
Order product | Platform, language swap
If CS5 then you must pay to upgrade from CS5 Win to CS6 Mac
Creative Suite 6
If CS4 or earlier then you're out of luck. You'll have to buy a new copy of CS6 for Mac or pay to join the Cloud.

  • How do I install a purchased CD of Adobe Creative suite onto a new 2013 Macbook Pro?

    Dear Apple Community,
    I recently purchased a 2013 Macbook Pro, and I was not aware that it was going to be difficult reinstalling Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 onto this computer, since the Suite is from a CD I purchased a little over a year ago. I would like to know how I can reinstall the adobe creative suite 5.5 onto this laptop which doesn't have a CD slot built into it? Is there a way I can contact adobe and just download the suite and provide my serial number without having to purchase. Keep in mind, I'm a student. How do I get adobe on this laptop?
    Thanks!

    Most Adobe products are identical between downloaded and physical media, requring their registration keys to enable them.
    You can try downloading a trial version from Adobe, if available, or here and then you would authorize it with your serial number.
    If you need to install it from disc, you can simply purchase the Apple external USB SuperDrive or try to find someone that has one.

  • How can I re-install my Adobe Creative Suite 6? Installation was idle when installing AdobeHelp

    I've problem re-install my Creative Suite 6 Master Collection for almost all applications. Installation was idle/stop when installing AdobeHelp, I've already tried to let the installation process ran for almost 24 hours, but it's still idle, so I cancelled the installation.
    I've tried several times, and the result is still the same. It's idle when installing Adobehelp
    And there is no feature/option in the installation menu to not installed Adobehelp.
    Before re-install, I've used AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool, because I can't installed adobe illustration that I've not installed yet before and the installation crashed.
    So I follow the instruction till I get suggestion to download AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool. and I ran it and choose all cleaning.
    Now I still have problem to re-install my Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection.

    System information:
    Laptop Dell Vostro 14", Intel Pentium i5, Ram 4GB
    OS Windows 7 Home Basic
    Is that enough? do you need more information?
    what kind of information?

  • How to reinstall my adobe cs5 suite onto my new laptop from my old laptop?

    I don't know what to do please help

    YOu are allowed to have two activated installations, so if you wish to you can keep the original machine loaded as a backup.  If you do not want that then the minimum you should do on the old machine is deactivate the installation by opening one of the programs and selecting Help -> Deactivate.
    To install on the new machine you need to acquire the installation files and install and activate just like you would have originally done for the old machine.  If you originally purchased the software as a download from Adobe then you might be able to find a link to download thru your account online.  You can also download thru the page linked below.  If you registered your software when you first installed it then you should be able to find your serial number in your online account as well.

  • Adobe Creative Suite Cloud on a MacBook Pro

    I need to upgrade my ancient Adobe Creative Suite 3 and just learned that Adobe is now offering just one upgrade option - Creative Suite Cloud. I don't have much choice but upgrade, but before I take the plunge, I'd like to find out what I'm getting in to.
    I found an unanswered thread on an Adobe forum where someone on a Mac complained about CS Cloud taking up far too much space on his hard drive. He also said something about having to move his websites into a different folder for some reason.
    Anyway, I'd love to hear from others who are using Creative Suite Cloud on a Mac, especially if you upgraded from CS3. Do you have any tips to share?
    I should add that I'm using MAMP to power my sites.
    Thanks!

    Are you talking about adobe creative cloud? 
    If you are, the Adobe Creative Cloud give you most of Adobe's tools (and all that most would need) to do anything.  I will warn you about this though, is that it is a subscription, and you are basically renting it.  that means you really do not own it.
    About the hard disk space, all Adobe apps seem to take up at least a GB (and this does not matter if you get the master collection or the Creative Cloud).  so ether way, it will take some space. 
    Also, if you want to try-before-you-buy, you can go to creative.adobe.com, and get a free account and try out all of he adobe apps available for creative cloud.  The best part of it, your apps will be updated to CS7 (if or when it comes out) instead of buying the apps again in your subscriptions.  if you need even more information, you can go to adobe's site to find out more (www.adobe.com)
