Reinstall Windows 7 and now the activation code does not work

I upgraded my PC with an AM2 chip to an i5.  I had to reinstall windows and now my activation code does not work.   It's like 2-3 years, I forgot when I built the computer.  It installed on my other windows 7 install and created the windows.old folder.  How can I get reactivated?  I used the same code since I built my computer.

Thank you

  • Migration has erased my Adobe CS5 and now the serial numbers does not work to reinstall

    CS5 Web Premium worked fine on El Capitan until I migrated.  Then he gave me the screen to enter the serial number of my product or purchase.  I entered the serial number and he said that it was not valid for this product.

    I spoke with a representative of Adobe yesterday who gave me a link to download the suite again and use my serial number to activate.  I downloaded it 5 times and every time it says installation file is corrupt and eject the disc.

    I spoke with a representative of Adobe a few minutes ago and he informed me that I can't contact a representative directly on my problem and I had to come here to get answers.

    Remarkable software.  Questionable tech support up to this point.

    Does anyone know how can I do in order to get CS5 running again?

    Thank you.

    Here's my chat with an agent of Adobe yesterday:


    Malick: You want to activate the product, correct?

    Malick: We are still connected?

    Jennifer Davis: Well, I had a product that has already been activated. Then I upgraded to El Capitan and migrated my old files on and now it gives me a screen of Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended Trial. I have my serial number.

    Malick: Please provide the product serial key.

    Jennifer Davis: (provided serials)

    Malick: Please allow me 1-2 minute (s) review the details of your account.

    Jennifer Davis: OK. Thank you

    Malick: Jennifer, you pull a software license option?

    Jennifer Davis: Your file was uploaded successfully: Screen Shot 2016-07-30 at 7.07.13 PM.png.

    Jennifer Davis: I'm not sure what you mean. I sent you a screenshot.

    Malick: Jennifer, the key to this series is of Adobe Web Premium cs5

    Jennifer Davis: Yes

    Malick: and you have downloaded the wrong product is photoshop

    Jennifer Davis: I don't understand.

    Malick: Jennifer, I provided you a link please visit the link and select Adobe Web Premium link

    Malick: then downlaod it and launch it and use serial keys accordingly


    Jennifer Davis: OK. This should restore my activation?

    Malick: Please uninstall the previous

    Malick: and then install it

    Jennifer Davis: Where should I go to uninstall?

    Malick: product launch go to menu help-click Disable or disconnect

    Jennifer Davis: I can not launch the product because it goes right to the screen right, I emailed you.

    Malick: Alright

    Malick: then click on the product

    Malick: Sorry link *

    Malick: and download the product

    Malick: Select Adobe Web Premium link

    Jennifer Davis: Also, it will interfere with my installation of Creative Suite CS4? I noticed that I can not open Photoshop CS4 now because it goes to CS5 rather.

    Jennifer Davis: I am the download link now.

    Malick: No, it won't create any problem with cs4

    Jennifer Davis: When I click to open CS4, need me the same screen that I sent you.

    Malick: This link is cs5 and serial key is also cs5

    Jennifer Davis: Yes, but when I open any CS4 product that has also a CS5 of the same product, it does not open. Need me this same screen CS5.

    Malick: Jennifer, cs4 is produced different.

    Malick: Can you provide a serial CS4 key

    Malick: ?


    Jennifer Davis: I understand that CS4 is a product different from CS5. It is also a separate issue I mention.

    Malick: Please provide cs4 serial key.

    Jennifer Davis: I download the CS5 link you sent as we speak. I insert the serial number for this product once it is downloaded. 

    Malick: Alright, so should I stay connected?

    Jennifer Davis: However, I also have the question of where to uninstall the CS5 Web premium. I can uninstall each component in the file by using the backout package. 

    Jennifer Davis: Yes, please.

    Jennifer Davis: A new question, which I have, is that I can not open my CS4 products if it also has a CS5 of the same product. For example, I can't open Photoshop CS4 because I have photoshop CS5. 

    Malick: No, there should be no problem with cs4.

    Jennifer Davis: When I click on Photoshop CS4, it opens the screenshot I sent you earlier.

    Malick: Jennifer, to check your question I need a serial key of cs4 please provide me with the serial key.

    Jennifer Davis: Where can I find?

    Jennifer Davis: As a side note, I found out where to uninstall them CS5.

    Malick: There is no cs4 in your account

    Malick: You have any alternative e-mail?

    Jennifer Davis: I don't think I ever recorded. Where can I find it on my computer?

    Jennifer Davis: (e-mail supplied)

    Malick: No, it's no cs4 under him only acrobat and cs5 is here

    Malick: You have the invoice of the product?

    Jennifer Davis: Nope. I got it for several years, however. I check with my husband now.

    Malick: well, let me know

    Jennifer Davis: Your file was uploaded successfully: Screen Shot 2016-07-30 at 7.39.57 PM.png.

    Jennifer Davis: Also, for some reason any download from the link you sent me stopped and said that I didn't have the permission to return to so I had to restart.

    Malick: Please restart him.

    Jennifer Davis: Since approximately 08-09

    Jennifer Davis: I had CS4 since about 2008-09.

    Malick: Jennifer, without serial key that I can not help you need to provide the invoice if you need of a serial of cs4 key

    Jennifer Davis: Is not on my computer anywhere.? Some programs work and some aren't.

    Malick: Jennifer, without serial key is not possible to provide any information

    Jennifer Davis: I understand. But what I'm asking, is to find the key to series on my computer since I was still a bit of the product operation?

    Malick: No, you can't find serial key system.

    Jennifer Davis: is there any other information that could lead to my serial key?

    Malick: We can help you if you have a valid invoice of the product.

    Try a reboot.

    Make a backup using Time Machine or a cloning program, to ensure that data files can be recovered. Two backups are better than one.

    Try to set up another admin user account to see if the same problem persists. If back to my Mac is enabled in system preferences, the guest account will not work. The intention is to see if it is specific to an account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.

    Isolate a problem by using a different user account

    If the problem is still there, try to start safe mode using your usual account.  Disconnect all devices except those necessary for the test. Shut down the computer and then put it up after a 10 second wait. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the SHIFT key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear. Startup is considerably slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a check for directory and disables all start-up and connection, among other things. When you restart normally, the initial restart may be slower than normal. If the system is operating normally, there may be 3rd party applications that pose a problem. Try to delete/disable the third-party applications after a reboot using the UN-Installer. For each disable/remove, you need to restart if you do them all at once.

    You tell us what type of license you have.

    If the former was preinstalled, NO, you cannot transfer it.

    Read this information:

    If the laptop came with the preinstalled Windows operating system (Dell, HP, Acer, etc.), this product key supplied with the laptop is preinstalled OEM license and is not transferable.

    OEM license/product key (systems of operating pre-installed on Dell, HP, etc.) is related to the first machine it is installed on and dies when dies of this machine.

    The above applies also to OEM system builders licenses.

    License of operating system in detail, that you buy and install yourself, are allowed to be transferred to another machine.

    And retail licenses also can be installed on a machine at one time.
