View Full Version : Activation issues

09-07-2007, 05:43 PM
Hi, Im going to try and keep things simple here because the situation is fairly complicated!
Essentially, I need to reformat my PC which has my installation of Dreamweaver 8 on it. If I reformat and do a clean install of windows xp, will I be able to install dreamweaver using my existing product key? With Windows XP, when you clean install it recognises you are installing on the same piece of hardware and I was wondering if Dreamweaver and other Adobe/Macromedia worked in the same way.

I don't want to attempt to install Dreamweaver and find that because I have already activated the product it refuses to let me install it! I cannot uninstall the usual way which I believe would normally de-activate the software and allow you to install it again, because my computer is almost completely unusable!

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Yes It Will Be Fine To Be Sure Contact Adobe Support

OK, thanks!
I did contact Adobe support but they never got back to me, which was why I thought I'd ask here.
Thanks for the quick response anyway!

Don't take my word for it, but I think you'll be fine. If afterward it doesn't work, you can always contact Adobe.

A very bad idea is to find a keygen if Adobe doesn't help you. 'Cause if you bought a copy, you shouldn't have the right to download it. Don't do this. I didn't suggest it.

Don't point at it, Don't even look at it !!!!

When you format the computer and re-install dreamweaver, use the same product key, it will work, (but don't register with adobe) since you already did it, i believe. If the product key does not work, then you should look for a keygen..... (I did not say that)

you should look for a keygen..... (I did not say that) Yes you did. We have a zero tolerance for software piracy on this site, so I would be very careful about advice like that.

Adobe will always help you out if you have a valid license.
