Entering a serial number
Enter the serial number for the software you purchased in the serialization screen. The serialization screen will load the first time you launch the application. You can enter a serial number for the application itself or a serial number for any Creative Suite edition that contains the application. If the product you purchased is a Creative Suite, you can enter the serial number in any of the applications contained in the Creative Suite. Other applications installed as part of the same Creative Suite 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 > Deactivate Permanently. 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 from a trial directly. However, a volume licensing serial number can be used to serialize all Creative Suite applications, except the Acrobat 9 trial or retail versions that ship with a Creative Suite edition. Acrobat 9 volume licensing software must be purchased from an authorized Adobe licensing center. Please contact your reseller or authorized Adobe licensing center to place an order for a volume license.

If you wish to purchase these applications, you will need to provide separate serial numbers for Acrobat and the Creative Suite edition.
Macintosh: Acrobat is not available for trial on Macintosh. If you wish to purchase a Creative Suite product, a Macintosh compatible version of Acrobat will be provided. To find a reseller in your area, go to http://partners.adobe.com/resellerfinder/na/reseller.jsp.
