Purchasing a used copy on Ebay

Postby AVITRY » Sun Oct 11, 2015 5:04 pm

There are a few used original copies of PE11 for sale on ebay. Am I going to have trouble registering or even installing a used copy if they are the original disc? I mean, wouldn't the installation code already be used by who ever is selling it?

thanks,
joe

Possibly, unless they deactivated it. But it's only legally done this way:

Adobe allows for its software to be installed on two computers. There is a chance that only one computer was registered. Adobe will require the e-mail address to reset the permissions.

Buying used software can be problematical. If the license is not transferred to you, you could be up the creek. Both parties have to submit paperwork to transfer the license. Read the requirements and procedures and make sure the seller will transfer the license.
