If you have installed a trial version of Creative Suite 4 Design Standard, you can enter a serial number to convert it from a trial. It is not necessary to uninstall.
You can convert a trial by entering the serial number you received when purchasing Design Standard. Launch any of the Design Standard applications and enter the serial number in the serialization screen.
Other applications installed as part of Design Standard will recognize the new serial number the next time the applications are launched. Only applications running as a trial will recognize the new serial number. If any of the applications have already been serialized with a different serial number, it will continue to use that serial number until you remove the older serial number using the Help > Deactivate > Erase my serial number. Then on the next launch of the application, it will recognize the new serial number.
The serial number you purchased is for the use of the software in a specific language, and will only be accepted by a product installed in that language.
Volume licensing customers cannot purchase a volume license from a trial directly, however a volume licensing serial number can be entered in the trial software without having to uninstall and reinstall. Please contact your reseller or authorized Adobe licensing center to place an order for a volume license. To find a reseller in your area, go to http://partners.adobe.com/resellerfinder/na/reseller.jsp.

Note: If you want to install a product on a different computer, you should first deactivate the serial number on your computer. To deactivate, choose Help > Deactivate.

The Creative Suite 4 installer installs fonts into a default system font directory. Many of these fonts are newer versions of fonts installed by Creative Suite 3. If the installer finds older versions of these fonts in the default system font directory, it will uninstall the older versions, and save them to a new directory. The default system font directory is:
The older fonts will be saved in the new directory:
This new directory will also contain a file named "Read Me.html" which lists the saved fonts, and the version numbers of the new and of the old font files.
You can re-install the older fonts by deleting the new font files from the default system font directory, and moving the old files back into that directory.
There are additional fonts on the installation disk. For information on installing these fonts, see http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_fontinstall_en.
