I purchased my Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium in 08 and have upgraded to Mac. It appears I am not able to use my old software as I have the Microsoft addition. What should I do now as I desperately need the program in my current situation?

Either run Windows on your Mac (Bootcamp, Parallels etc) and run CS3 in Windows on your Mac
or buy a new full version of CS6 for Mac
Creative Suite 6
or join the Cloud

  • Installing Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium on to my Apple laptop??

    Hi I need help installing my adobe suite program!!
    I purchased the Adobe Creative Suite 5 design premium program a few months ago last year. I need to know if, I Can install this program on to a Apple MacBook Pro laptop computer if, this program is for a windows pc?? Because, i tried to download it before on to my laptop and a error message poped up. If, I cannot install this program on to my laptop could you please tell me which type of Apple laptop I should purchased and also how much memory and RAM should that laptop have in order for me to use this program on it as well. My mother brought me the program from the Academic Super Store online for $510.00. When I had brought this program I had brought it to go onto my Dell Dimension 3000 desktop computer for a PC that had windows on it. Then, later on, my desktop ended up crashing on me and now i am stuck with this program and i can't use it because, i can't download it on to my Apple laptop. My mother isn't going buy another one of these programs they are too expensive to keep buying. 

    Standalone licenses are platform-specific. If you are still eligible for ediu pricing, simply buy a current product for Mac at the discounted price. Otherwise you would have to upgrade to CS6 and make the platform switch along with it.

  • I have purchased the Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium but will not allow me to register?

    I have purchased the Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & web Premium & it will not allow me to register the software --- I'm having to use the trial version --- will you please help me in updating --- the products that I have paid lots of money for?
    And I currently have Adobe Audition 1.5 --- please contact me via [email address removed]
    but I would like to get this registered immediately ---
    Currently I have been the recipient of a very bad experience regarding the manner in which Adobe is forcing me to spend more money on products without allowing me to upgrade accordingly --- or in having to speak to a FOREIGNER --- who cannot communicate properly .... please respond as soon as possible ... please.
    My experience in trying to speak to someone with a 'Extremely Thick Accent' was very unpleasant and aggrivating ... and ended up 'going no where.'
    I need to speak/communicate  with someone who can help in using the product that I have paid a lot of money for.

  • I have Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium (Teacher and Student Edition.  I've purchased the upgrade to Adobe Photoshop CS6 - Trying to install, but it says my serial number is invalid?

    I have Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium (Teacher and Student Edition).  I've purchased the upgrade to Adobe Photoshop CS6 - Trying to install, and it says the Adobe CS6 is valid - but only provides 'photoshop' options for entering my old serial number, rather than the adobe creative suite. How do I move past this so I can download it on my computer.  I don't want to upgrade to Adobe Creative Suite 6 - as I do not need all the programs, just photoshop.  From looking online, I read forums that said this was possible.  Please advise

    I don't want to upgrade to Adobe Creative Suite 6 - as I do not need all the programs, just photoshop.
    Unfortunately that option is not possible.
    You cannot upgrade a Creative Suite to a standalone product.
    Creative Suites can only be upgrades to other Creative Suites.
    You'll need to return Photoshop CS6 upgrade since you cannot use it.
    Return, cancel, or exchange an Adobe order
    Some options:
    Buy a Creative Suite upgrade, or
    Buy a full new copy of Photoshop CS6, or

  • Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium trial version says my serial number is invalid?

    I purchased Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium from my my community college's bookstore in 2010. I successfully have used it all this time, but I recently bought a new laptop. This new laptop does not have a disk drive, but I was able to download the trial version of it online. It downloaded great, and I have been using the trial version, but the trial is up in one week. I deactivated my serial number on my old laptop, and then tried to enter it onto my new laptop, but the error message keeps saying "Incorrect Serial Number": "The serial number you entered is not valid." However, the serial number is definitely valid, and I spoke with Adobe and they just checked and were able to see that I do have an activation available for this serial number. Why won't it accept it?
    Side Notes:
    The licensing is Student Licensing
    I downloaded the correct creative suite (Creative Suite 4 Design Premium)
    I typed in the serial number correctly and checked multiple times
    I cannot afford to purchase an updated version nor Adobe Creative Cloud at this time
    Someone please help!! I am very frustrated and the person on Adobe Chat said they do not offer any technical assistance for older products.... Any help is MUCH appreciated!!

    Same thing happened to me, except I lost disk 2 and was told to go to the forums.. Seems Adobe isn't too great on their customer service or fixing issues.  The problem I was told, was that we have "Student" serials and the one from the download isnt a student version.

  • I have Adobe Creative Suite 5 "Design Premium" for Mac.  Was Adobe Acrobat included?

    Hi,
    I have Adobe Creative Suite 5 "Design Premium" for Mac.  It was purchased and downloaded ~Nov 2010.  However, it appears that I never downloaded Adobe Acrobat, which looks like it's on a separate disk.  Long story ... but am only starting to use this software now after 2 years!  Anyhow, I'm wondering if I can safely download this disk at this point?  Also, I see that there is a number of updates which I should be installing, so wondering if I should hold off on those until after Acobat is downloaded?  I did get a serial number from the install of the the other Adobe software included in Creative Suite 5.
    Many Thanks,
    Janice

    You can download the trial version of the software thru the page linked below and then use your current serial number to activate it.
    Be sure to follow the steps outlined in the Note: Very Important Instructions section on the download pages at this site or else the download will not work properly.

  • Adobe Creative Suite CS3 Design Premium Student Upgrade?

    I bought a student edition of CS3 Design Premium.
    After purchasing it I found that I only use the Photoshop part of the Suite.
    Am I able to upgrade the Photoshop portion, upgrade the complete Suite or do I have to purchase a new student copy of  CS5 Photoshop.
    Thanks in advance.

    Bob -- I appreciate your bad news
    Looks like I'll qualify for a teachers copy of CS5 -- I guess I'll pick one of those up.
    I had a quick glance at your article & am sure that both I & my children (students) will find it of use.
    Best to you & thanks again.

    Subject: Adobe Creative Suite CS3 Design Premium Student Upgrade?
    First things first...there are no student upgrades. If you're still eligible you can buy the software at student prices.
    In the case of actual upgrades, no, you can't upgrade an individual sutie component.
    I have an article on my web site that might be of interest to you: http://www.theindesignguy.com/purchase-advice.shtml

    I had all my software, including my ‘Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium’ removed from my MacPro (OSX 10.10.2) by a Computer technician after I had inadvertently installed some malware.
    Now I can’t reinstall my CS4 because the installer software wants me to identify the product from which I am upgrading, but mine isn’t on the list. The old product from which I am upgrading is called ‘Adobe Design Collection’. Furthermore, it has 4 serial numbers (one each for Photoshop, InDesign, Acrobat and Illustrator), not just one, as the installer requires.
    I know this can be done, as I have had it working for a long time. Am I doing something wrong now?

    Contact support be web chat and have them generate a working temporary serial/ challenge code for the install.

    when you were install your cs3 you should have been prompted for you serial number.  were you?
    if not, you probably didn't properly install cs3.  copying/migrating/moving etc is problematic.
    if yes, did you see any error messages during installation?
    if yes, attach a screenshot of the error message.
    if not, check you install logs, Troubleshoot with install logs | CS5, CS5.5, CS6, CC

  • Serial Key not working for Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium

    I just want access to the product I bought. Can anybody help me?
