However, when I try to open the program on the new HP Tower computer I see the base window with the name of the program with. Task Manager states the program is not responding. Why will the program run on my Windows 10 notebook, but not my new Windows 10 desktop tower computer? Is there a solutions to my dilemma? Do you have an Adobe registered users registration site where it lists all your Abode software and the number of existing installs?
Its obvious what they are doing. If they don’t want to count actuations on CS3 then they should make it activation free. It makes me wonder how soon they will do this to all existing like CS6. We were told that it was yours to use once you bought it. I think they will see a mass market shift if this continues. The alternatives are growing. It’s not much help, but if you don’t want Adobe’s current subscription software, have a look at alternatives like Affinity Photo; surprisingly inexpensive IMO.
Both use the Windows 10 Home operating system. Is Affinity Photo a one time purchase that does not use a subscription plan and can be used on multiple computers offline? Actually, I used the layers function for tricolor astrophotography back in the s before Photoshop invented it.
I wonder if it anything to do with the number of concurrent installs you have, or have had. When the registration server was alive, you could have old installs removed and free up the chance to use.
From my knowledge they allowed 2 installs , so you could use on laptop out of house and PC at home. The frowned on any running at the same time. Then for a while CS3 was almost ignored, seems it is all over now with no way to reinstall. Otherwise, there’s a certain irony for those that won’t subscribe to CC as they want a perpetual licence, only to find that “perpetual” for Adobe isn’t actually perpetual. I think we forget that sometimes, companies drop support for both hardware and software.
It no longer gets updated which often leads to incompatibility with other software. I have scanners that no longer work, apps that no longer work on my iPad, an so on.
True perpetual license doesn’t mean it will last forever but CS3 was released in so 39 years of use is not bad. It depends where you live. In the EU, you own your copy of a perpetual licence, in the same way you own your copy of a book. It doesn’t matter what the EULA says, provided that you paid a one-off price to use the software, and there was no explicit time limit in the licence. You don’t own the copyright, but you own the copy. Whether CS3 users in Europe can manage to assert that right to continue to authenticate the software is another matter!
But as has already been said, even if you were able to get CS3 to launch, there is no way to activate. Your only option re CS3 would be to find someone who has and is willing to share the no-activation version that Adobe made available to registered users three years ago. I am curious how those users were notified, whether directly or via something much more obscure—akin to a tiny notice in the classified section of a newspaper. Let this serve as a warning. We can expect all the activation servers to be retired eventually, so for anyone running CS4 up, keep a sharp eye out for word that your software is being taken off life support.
CS3 was released in The very first version of Photoshop was , and the first version that ran on Windows was PS 2. That was my first version. You’d think I would know PS petty well after 28 years, wouldn’t you? Laowa just released a series of extremely compact anamorphic lenses, including a 35mm T2.
