It is not a joke. It is the full version and is legal, right from Adobe.

Under XP for sure.
For Win 7 is working on 32 bit version, if you have problems on 64 bit version, please read this: "I installed CS2 on Windows 7 without issue. Make sure you running the app as administrator by right-clicking the installer icon and selecting "run as administrator".
"I have gotten Adobe Creative Suite CS2 working in Windows 7 without a problem. What i did was this:

right click on the executable
Select Properties
Click on the Compatibility Tab
Use the drop down menu to select XP SP3 mode
Checked the box for Run as Admin
Clicked okay
Run the installer

It installed perfectly for me and have used it several times without any problems."

Sorry but unfortunately it's not free and it's not legal to use this version of CS2 unless you are already licensed.

Adobe put these download links and serial numbers because they are shutting down their license activation servers for CS2 and therefore they needed a different system for clients that are already licensed but need to install their licensed version on a different machine.

Have a look at the following discussion on the forum, in particular have a look at the reply of Dov Isaacs of Adobe Systems:

Don't worry that it's not legal. Alvera is the king, he can get you out of jail :)

Thanks for clarification Elifranssens. I will put a note on my blog.
It seems that Adobe is trying something, is very strange to put a software for download with a valid serial number without any clarification on the official page:)
"That's clearly not the message going viral on the web right now.

There's a frenzy of activity out there." (John Waller, same forum)

lol Grisho, you are right, I will break the jail but ONLY if you have a valid serial number :))

Effective December 13, Adobe disabled the activation server for CS2 products and Acrobat 7 because of a technical glitch. These products were released over 7 years ago and do not run on many modern operating systems. But to ensure that any customers activating those old versions can continue to use their software, we issued a serial number directly to those customers. While this might be interpreted as Adobe giving away software for free, we did it to help our customers."

So, the end of the story is this:
"However, please note that you are only legally entitled to download and install with that serial number if you already have a valid license to the product!"

Thanks Adobe for this funny story :)) Back to GIMP.

This is something like "I don't give away my software, but you can use it on your computer." Interesting and ridicolous at the same time. They say "Here is the chocolate, but you can't touch it"

quote from that post:
"This is pretty sad guys. You had a chance to break away from the standard foolishness of the software industry, help alot of people out, curb piracy of your CURRENT version of CS, because a free copy of one 4 VERSIONS OUT OF DATE is available, easy to get and install. This was going to be huge without costing you guys a dime (does anyone even sell CS2 any more? if I wanted to buy a copy direct from Adobe, could I?). Now, instead, you've in practice released a magic copy of CS2 that will work for anyone, but declaired that they aren't "allowed" to use it unless they already own a copy.

Want some free PR advice? Whatever your intention *was*, walk it back right now. You've already put CS2 up on the internet for free, with your magic serial number that will work for anyone. All the tech news outlets are running with it. The horses are out of the barn, and you can't put them back, so you're going to shoot them instead?

Any pro worth his salt will still by the latest CS. Any graphic or web design firm will too. This is what lets high school students, poor college students, and amatures get their feet in the water that is Adobe CS and realize they need it, and that when they can afford it they'll jump up to the latest CS.

Come on guys. You dropped the ball here. You can either keep it in play and earn major points with everyone who's ever heard of Photoshop, or you can end the game because you'd rather do that then test out some new rules.

Just friendly advice from a fan."

People who bought Adobe CS2 in the past probably didn't like the move and generated negative feedback. I guess that's why we have this new statement from Adobe.
Posted: 01/09/2013, 06:17:25 AM
Here here, to your last post Alvera. This could have been a win win situation for Adobe, if the suits had looked at it properly. After all, Dreamstime have a free image platform to bring in customers, and get people to look, why wouldnt that work for Adobe?
