In this article, we’ll see how to transfer Adobe Creative Suite from one computer to another, including Photoshop, Lightroom, InDesign, Illustrator, Premier, After Effects, and their settings, workspaces, drawings and data. In fact, you can also transfer other programs and files as well, not just CS, and they will all function just as on the old machine.
In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to transfer Creative Suite completely automatically – using Zinstall WinWin, and copy Creative Suite software, files, workspaces, definitions and settings from the old laptop or desktop to the new one. This tutorial works for Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 11. Yes, this does mean that you can transfer Creative Suite even from 7 to Windows 11!
Note on licensing: the tool used in this tutorial transfers the licenses files as well, so if you have lost your disks or don’t remember the license number, you can still use it. However, it is up to you to make sure that your license is still valid for use on a new computer. Creative Suite will also verify license validity when it first starts.
That’s it! You now have Creative Suite, with all of your data and other programs, on your new computer.
