Instructions for downloading older versions of Adobe apps here: https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/downloaded-older-app.html

If you're planning to get rid or an old computer but it still runs, choose Help>Deactivate... or Help>Sign-Out... to remove the activation from the computer before you dispose of the computer or sell it. Instructions here: http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/activation-deactivation-products.html#activate-how...

If you are using Photoshop CS6 or earlier and you've lost an activation because of a hardware failure and the system no longer runs, go to this page and work with a chat agent. They should be able to restore your activation: https://www.adobe.com/about-adobe/contact.html

If you don't remember your serial # but you've registered your product, you can sign into adobe.com and access your serial #s here: https://account.adobe.com/products

I have cs4 which I have never used; the cd won't work on my Windows 8.1 computer so I used Adobe's website to download the software. When I click on setup, it asks if I trust this site and I say yes. Then nothing. The question box removes and I am staring at the folder containing the download files. What did I do wrong? Why won't it run the setup?

Jeffrey - You seem like the best person on this site. I would send you a personal message, but I don't think that's a feature on this site. Do you think you could possibly look at this question I asked on my profile, and help me? I doubt I'll get any answers unless I reach out to people.

If you could help me at all, I would really appreciate it.

I have Photoshop CS5.1 installed on two of my studio computers. I will be purchasing a new computer and wish to re-install the CS5.1 onto the new computer with my current CD & Registration number. Does Photoshop have a problem with that as I'm being told that Photoshop will not allow me to install it into the new computer.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop Reinstall.

I've never ran into a problem with photoshop on my computer. I have updated my computer but it didn't seem to affect anything on my computer other than maybe Photoshop cs5. My Lightroom works just fine but photoshop would not open. I uninstalled it because it kept telling me there was a problem with photoshop that wouldn't be resolved. So I uninstalled in and attempted to reinstall it however I no longer have a serial number that I had when I install it the first time a couple years ago. How can I get photoshop back on my computer?

Hi Susan,

Looks like you own a couple versions of the CS suites. You can find the links to download installers at the top of the page. Be sure to download the "International English" versions. You can burn your own disks or simply back up the installers on a pocket drive if you want.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How do I get my unused CS4 on Window 8.1?.

How do I get CS4 to upload on a Windows 8.1? Years ago, I purchased CS4 from my manager who won CS5 from a PPA meeting; at the time, I had CS2 on both of my computers and set it aside for future use since I was planning on purchasing a new computer within the next year. I moved 2 times since then and couldn't find it with the rest of my software (guess I hid it very well) when I needed it so I purchased CS6 student version for my desktop. Since then, my laptop died and I have found my CS4 in an unwitting box full of my grandmother's China which I now had room to display. I purchased a new laptop but it has Windows 8.1. How do I download this unused version? Can I try the trial purchase and then put in my CS4 serial number? Please any help and ASAP is greatly appreciated. I will need to use it on my laptop within the next few weeks. Today's date is 02.16.2015.

Thank you in advance.
