Adobe GoLive CS2 (code named "Reloaded") is the eighth (and second-to-last) version of the GoLive graphical HTML and CSS editor, released by Adobe Systems in April 2005.

Product history[]

Adobe GoLive CS2 icon

GoLive CS2 was also included as part of Adobe Creative Suite 2. Although one more version would later be released by Adobe, GoLive would eventually be replaced by Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 in Creative Suite 3.[1]

End of support[]

On December 15, 2012, activation servers for CS2 applications were shut down. Registered users who wished to continue using GoLive CS2 after that date could download a new installer from Adobe with a new serial number that could be activated without contacting a server.[2] Some users and websites had interpreted that Adobe was giving CS2 applications away for free, but Adobe clarified that these were only for registered users and began requiring a valid existing serial number to access downloads.[3][4] In May 2019, Adobe stopped providing CS2 downloads entirely.[5]
