      I have this software working perfectly in a Windows 7 64bit system. This great suite for free. Highly recommended.

      What's the catch?
      Adobe never do something for really free.

      But it's good for the one left behind in XP PC and PPC Mac.

      How convenient! I have a Windows 2000 computer from a company that went belly up and it just so happens to have several CS2 products on it. I wanted to transfer them to a better computer, but I didn't have the discs. I'm downloading now. Thanks again Ben!

      Don't bother. They're not free because you have to put serial numbers that are expensive.

      http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_serial_number_and_authorizationbacon_for_all_Adobe_software

      What Is The Activation Number?
      Adobe's Program Activation feature has been implemented by Adobe to put a halt to widespread piracy of its programs. By rendering programs useless until registered and activated on the Adobe site, it makes it difficult, if not impossible, for the type of piracy experienced in the past. Those of us who spend thousands on their Adobe programs also benefit as Adobe can use money saved by this feature to put into program development.

      Activation numbers are different from program Serial Numbers in that Serial Numbers are in effect the product's legal license number identification. Activation numbers are used to activate and enable the program for use on a user's system. The program will not function unless properly activated using the correct number, and only 2 activations of the same program license (Serial Number) are allowed at any given time. This means you can have 2 copies running on separate computers, but if you want it to run on another one you have to deactivate one (from the Help Menu in the program). The program must also be activated again on the new system in order for it to work. For authorized program owners, if you attempt to activate on more than one 2 systems, the activation procedure will prompt you to deactivate one before continuing.

      The activation number that is generally asked upon the first time running an Adobe product is gathered by following the on-screen instructions. You can choose to get the activation by Internet, phone, or mail**. Internet is the quickest and easiest way to activate. For phone activation: there will be a phone number that is toll-free you must call, provide your serial number and the activation code in the box on your screen. You will then receive the activation key that you need to enter into the next box. You only have to do this procedure once for each Adobe product…

      This is not free. They are no longer using the CS2 servers and are phasing out some older stuff.

      Premiere Pro also installed fine and seems to work. DL speeds are pretty fast too. Nice catch.
