    Thank you very much for ideas and help.

    The Adobe creative suits CS3 is now successfully installed.

    The next problem is that I reached maximum installs on the serial number, the system suggest I log on to the old computer and deactivate.

    That "old computer" is long gone after a crash - and not available at all.

    So what's the solution there?

    Have a great day all......

    Others may have another solution, but AFAIK the only way to (legally) resolve this is to contact Adobe support and have them reset the counter. While one may be on "hold" for a long time, in my own experience, telephone support may be more successful than email or chat/web.
    Having said that, if the product is EOS/EOL, then I'm not sure if they can or will be able to help?

    Cheers,
    MM

    Glad you got it installed. Mind sharing with us your steps to complete the successful install? It may help others in the future.

    For deactivation, as MM says, contacting Adobe is the best way to have the old computer deactivated. The CS3 activation servers are still working, so they should be able to assist you.
