Apparently they couldn’t keep their license server running or justify its operations for a vanishingly small user base. See their web for the license key and download.

You, sir, just saved my day.
I'm abroad only with my PowerBook G4 15-inch (and my work laptop, but I can't install anything on it), and need to work on some pictures.

You need to have a registered Adobe account to download the installers from the website. They do supply license keys.

Glad to help.

I run a Canon 5d (now known as “classic”) from the same vintage. All works well enough together, the g4 has enough to do RAW at 12MP. The best is the PB works dual head with my 1920x1200 display.

My other, far more powerful 2011 MacBooks discrete gfx failed. I’m watching Louis Rossmann YouTube on fixing tantalum caps in the hope I’m only $2 (and $100s in soldering equipment) away from reviving it. Entertaining in a Ny/NJ style, but he does talk. A lot. I’m promising myself not to invest anything that doesn’t pay for itself in some commercial enterprise. And I’m not a professional picture taker, so the 5d mkiv remains unjustifiable.
