I have Photoshop CS5 on two of my computers, but want to move one of them to another computer. How do I go about doing so?

Thanks

Deactivate it on the old computer, install and activate it on the new computer.

Did you register your product? If so, you can log into you Adobe account and retrieve it. If not, do you still have it installed and activated on the first computer? If so, choose Help>Register to register it. Then you can log into adobe.com and retrieve it.

I tried that and it didn't work. It still doesn't come up as being registered. I have photoshop CS5 pulled up.

Were you able to register it from Activated version on the old computer and just not seeing it under you account? It may take few minutes for it to show up under you account. Try logging back into your account in 30 minutes to see if it showed up.
