Tony unless you can provide the activation code I expect it will not let you use the product.
If you acquired it with a liscence however you should have all that information to activate it again IMHO.

Contact Adobe with your order/purchase details and they'll sort it out for you.

What you say is true Tony, I know of some who have a pirated copy of the earlier versions of PS.
Seems like you don't have much of a chance of retrieving your copy Tony.
It is a bugger when you buy software and then they change the rules.

I went to install my CS6 a few months ago and Adobe has revoked my license so I could not install it on my computer. Lucky I had an image of my HDD with CS6 installed and activated.

Adobe is trying to get everyone to purchase their subscription to Creative Cloud which I won't be doing.

Hello if you tap on that link I got .log in to adobe. They will give you another activation code. You have to remove your old CS3 software. The they give you 2 lots of the software to download.you install it use your new activation code .and away you go. I am not real software switched on . I had a go but aI failed . The other choice they give you is to upgrade to latest software and pay.$$$$$$$$$$$..

It indeed costs EUR 12 (A$19) a month. If that is too much, get Affinity Photo (EUR 55 == A$80) once, no subscription. I have it and most PS functions are the same.
Other (or additional) options are Dartable and GIMP 2.10 (both free).

Have a look at the latest PaintShopPro from Corel.
Does everything PS does with one off cost.

Which may be a lot for some ($170 a year).

Also consider that Tony already paid and bought the software before. Then Adobe stole it from him (switched it off) and made him jump through hoops to get it back. All to convince him to pay more for the upgrade.
Just imagine your car dealer taking your car after a few years and pulling a similar stunt.

The pricing plan is geared towards professional photographers who use it for commercial gain, not your average amateur astronomer.......
