I´ve installed a version of Photoshop CS3 and typed in a license key wich was, obviously, wrong, so, when I start Photoshop a message meaning "License Expired" is displayed.
I tried to reinstall the program many times, finally i had the idea to set my system date to sometime in the past – then, the program startet but i could not use the "Deactivate"-ability.

What should I do now to make Photoshop work?
Please help!

Did you buy your copy direct from Adobe? If so their "Installation Helpline" is free.

If it’s a trial version, the 30 trial is irrevokably terminated the instant you alter the system clock.

Hi

Is it photshop you have or one of the suites that include photoshop. I hae the same problem until I was told by Adobe that suite copies of photoshop have a different serial format.

Cheers

There is a possibility that the activation servers are down. What are you seeing (eg progress bar, no connection) when you try to deactivate?

When I try to deactivate the product, there is a message displayed wich asks me to connect to the internet (my internet connection works properly)

PS: By the way: Sorry for my bad English…

There is an erase utility from Adobe which completely removes PS/CS3. You might try this one.

Sorry, but… where do I get the "Windows Installer CleanUp-Utility" from?

Gabriel,

I’m getting a message telling me that the activation servers are currently unavailable, which explains the message you get when trying to deactivate.
