Default Adobe CS2 de/re-activation process

After moaning for days at the whole prospect of de-activating and then re-activating Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, et al, I found the process — though lengthy — went pretty smoothly.

There were some almost glitches. I had de-activated but not deleted the files from my old boot volume. So when I started to install I discovered that the installer was going to leave the apps on the old drive (which is slated for demolition at some point). So I backed out, deleted all the files (they provide a list that is almost accurate), and then emptied the trash.

Then the install went well.

However, it took a long time, and was basically unpleasant in concept and in reality. I guess it is the sort of thing that a vendor without competition can and will do, however. Way I hear it, this does not deter pirates; but it certainly inconviences those of us who pay cold hard cash.

But oh, well. It is done. Now if I can get Fontographer set up, I think most of this messy process is done.
