Moving Illustrator CS3 to a new computer?

Moving Illustrator CS3 to a new computer?

Moving Illustrator CS3 to a new computer?


I know that there is more to moving CS3 Adobe software to a new computer then just reinstalling it but I'm not sure what the procedure is?

How do I un-register it from my old one so that it will be excepted when I install it on my new one.

I don't think that this is necessary with my other software (which is all CS2) because they would let me install them when I switched to Windows 7 and Illustrator would not.

It this correct?
Or do I need to do this with all my Adobe software?

When I tried to install Illustrator I got a message about having to deregister it or something like that so I just left it in my XP setup (I'm dual booting on my old computer).

Any help welcome...


RE: Moving Illustrator CS3 to a new computer?

The typical Adobe software is 'activated'. De-activate from the Help menu before running the uninstall tool.
