Is there a way to find out your serial number from an Adobe CS3 install?

Asked by fuzzyjay (252points) August 18th, 2008

Believe it or not, my boss lost the first disc of my Adobe CS3 master collection, which had my serial number on it. I was hoping to try out the CS4 beta trials on the Adobe site but I need my serial number. Anyone know of a way to find out the serial number from the installed programs?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Well… there are several “ways” to find out. If you were to go to and find a CS3 key in the comments section of one of the torrents, then it would work: That is, it would work to install CS3. There’s no way to tell, and no: There’s no way to pull your serial key off of your installed copy.

Thanks Lovelocke, I didn’t think there was, but wanted to see if anyone had any ways to figure it out. Since my boss lost the copy, he’ll have to pony up the cash for a new version. I works out okay since I’m moving from PC to MAC anyway so I’d need a new version anyway.

Try looking at the About section on the help menu. It should display the serial number while it tells you who made the program.

If all else fails, try It is a site run by and it has a lot of serial numbers.
