I am reconfiguring my computer and need to run my old Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium software. After spending time installing it, I received an error that it could not be activated. A brief search turned up the fact that Adobe recently shut off their activation server for this old version.
They provided a page with links to download a version of CS2 that bypasses the need for the activation server, but it appears to not provide all the software in CS2 Premium. I'm not the first to have this issue: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1114930?tstart=0
I started a separate discussion for Mac CS2 Premium at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1129934?tstart=30
