You should remove this from the download page although I find it funny it work on 2 computers but not a third oneI have downloaded from TechSpot the Photoshop CS2 free version. I can't complete the installation as the serial number hasn't come up? Please advise.
Is is odd, but not unexpected. The "FNP" licensing service may still be active. Adobe might still be using this to determine how many installs any given IP has made of their product. All Adobe software is licensed for two separate installs. Any more than this will result in a disabling the software as soon as third install is detected online. In this case, while the program might work on the serial number, without activation, the FNP process is still operative, and functioning.you should remove this from the download page although I find it funny it work on 2 computers but not a third one
I just bought a copy of Photoshop Elements 13, for 50 bucks, free shipping from Newegg. FWIW probably 80% percent of people who are preoccupied with getting "something for nothing", and are screwing around with PSCS-2, don't need Photoshop itself, and are shooting themselves in the foot, if they need RAW file codecs from newer digital cameras.I also tried the free CS2 download when my licensed copy no longer worked after transferring it to a different computer. The serial number on the download page has four characters too many and does not work, nor does anything else I have tried. My original paid, licensed serial number will not work either. I don't seem to have any options and do not use it enough to justify the very high costs of the newer versions.
