New computer, no disc drive. Need to install (purchased) PS CS6

  • Updated 1 year ago
I bought Photoshop CS6 in 2013 and had it installed on my MacBook Pro for like 5 years. That computer died last month and I now have a MacBook Air, which does not have a disc drive. Even if it did, however, it wouldn't matter anyway because I can't find the disc. I still have the serial numbers for it so that's not an issue.

I would like to avoid having to rent/buy an external hard drive and a disc to install it, so any suggestions would be great.
