End of supportEdit

Technical support ended on November 3, 2011.[1] In July 2017, activation servers for Adobe Creative Suite 3 applications were shut down, which also affected Acrobat 8. Registered users who wished to continue using Acrobat 8 after that date could use their valid serial number to download a new installer from Adobe that could be activated without contacting a server.[2] In December 2019, Adobe stopped providing CS3 downloads entirely.[3][4]
