Windows 7 64bit & upgrade from CS2 to CS5
Dec 24, 2012

The title says it all...can't believe how many of us are having issues with Adobe without any support from them.

My situation is that I had to get a new OS hard drive and installed CS2 on it (Windows 7, 64-bit) using the C:\progra~2\adobe path that's been working for most people.

The C:\progra~2\adobe install path worked fine for me perfectly in the past with my old hard drive but now its forcing me to "activate" over the internet (been there, for hours) but I'm getting that "server is unavailable" message.  I won't bother calling as in the past they just told me they can't offer any support for CS2.

So now I basically have an installed version of CS2 that isn't "activated". Would I get any success in just buying the $200 CS5 upgrade? My concern is that because CS2 hasn't been activated, CS5 won't work either.

Sorry to sound so negative, but everyone I talk to at Adobe is completely clueless.

Thanks so much in advance!! This is really starting to set me back in jobs.
