Hey

I need some information first before I actually buy.
After searching the net, I finally found CS3 Master collection-software so I have valid software and can upgrade to CS4. (I need valid software because I'm going to use this on self-employed base and because you're not supposed to use hacked software :p)

So my question is:
This guy sells a key only. That's fine by me.. I only need the key because the software can either be downloaded + I already have the software.
He sais that he never registred the key and sent me a screenshot of an email he got from Adobe with the keys.

So would this be enough? buying his 'key' he got by email from Adobe to be legally in order with valid software?
The guy who's selling it, is living close-by, so I'd buy at his place and can actually see the key.

Just to make sure, I'm asking it here, because there's enough people here who have bought Adobe software to know how it works.

Thanks in advance.

Just be aware Adobe has an activation sequence so that no more than 3 installs are allowed because of all the piracy out there, their trying to cover their ass. Every upgrade I made (I'm now using CS3), I've had to get on the phone for assistance to use the software.

Well I've got the key emailed (based on good trust) and going to install CS3 Master Collection again, use the key, activate and register it on my name and if that works, I'll pay him.

Very nice of him to send the key for me to try out Smile

Just a word of warning... CS4 is bugged to hell ! (at least in regards to the GPU acceleration stuff)

If i were you I'd get this key and then just run a kosher CS3.
