I bought an update, from Design Standard to Design Premium this Monday. I have since then tried to install the update. I bought the version that could be downloaded immediately. I downloaded the two files .exe and .7z and extracted them. I have not moved the files after download/extraction.

I have then tried to install the Design Premium files and succeded with most of the programs but not with Photoshop. I still have the "old" version of Photoshop in my Design Premium folder when I start Photoshop (start/program/Adobe Design Premium CS 5.5/Photoshop).

I have also checked the version when having Photoshop started in the Help-menu. When I start the version of Photoshop in the Design Premium program file and go to Help/About Photoshop it says Photoshop CS 5 and not Photoshop Extended as I assume it should. I also lack the two extra menues (3D and one more that I cannot recall now) that should be visible in the menubar of the Photoshop Extended version.

I have un-installed everything, re-installed it. Installed it again, but no success. I am going mad. Can anyone help me?

Thank you!

Hi Camilla,

Launch Photoshop.

1. Select Help>Deactivate... and select the option to not remember the serial number
2. Close Photoshop
3. Relaunch Photoshop and enter your Design Premium serial number to reactivate Photoshop
