CS3 Install

Hi everyone,

As my name states, I really have no idea about this kind of stuff - hey, I don't even know if this is even the right place to ask such a question.

I purchased CS3 Design Standard (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign) Student Edition back in 2008 and installed this on my MacBook. I am not 100% sure how many licenses this came with but I do still have the install CD and packaging but I cannot seem to find the product key used to install the software.

With that in mind, I was wondering if anyone knows how to "dodge" the product key part of the installation as I have just bough a new iMac and want the software installed on this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated or a simple piss off will be sufficient?

Sorry NoIdeaMan,

You're in the wrong place for that kind of stuff.

However, considering it is Adobe.... If I remember correctly you're allowed to use your serial on 2 machines. Doesn't it display the serial when you click Help --> About? (As there is a special deployment option to hide the serial number... Wouldn't know what use it has otherwise)

Good luck on your quest [;)]

If you bought a student edition, then I think you should have been required to register and log into Adobe's website to get your install code. So you might try starting here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/152/tn_15290.html
