Photoshop Upgrade

After going through the upgrade path of Photoshop from PS6, I am now at CS3 and have my Photoshop 7 Upgrade CD. Is one allowed to sell the 7.0 upgrade CD?

Also, during installation of CS3 (upgrade purchase), there was never a time where I was required to enter my original serial number. All I had to enter was the serial number as given on the retial box of CS3. It's as if it was the full version of CS3. Doesn't an upgrade require this, as I remember I had to enter my original serial number for PS 7 upgrade?

i'm not sure personally, but I would think, the upgrade CD or DVD you got requires that an older version of Photoshop is installed in your computer for it to upgrade. I would think there'll be a difference between an upgrade CD/DVD to a full software purchase.

I could be wrong, but if it does require an older version already installed, I wouldn't sell it, in case anything happens to your system and need to re-install.

If I remember correctly: If you have the pervious version installed on your Mac, you only need to input the new serial number when you install the new version.

I installed CS3 on a drive that was initialized. No PS7 on it at all. Still, only the serial # on the CS3 box was required. I also remember when I installed PS7 upgrade, I also had a clean drive and was required to enter the serial number of PS6. Not so with CS3 upgrade. Strange. Unless the installer detected PS7 on my other drive. Would it do that? I did have it installed on my other internal Leopard drive.

When you say it was a clean install, had you ever had CS or CS2 installed. It could be that you have a receipt file in your Library and perhaps the installation detects it and therefore doesn't require you to enter the earlier serial number.
Edit:
The early version wouldn't have to be on that drive, just if you ever had it installed and the receipt would have been written to your startup disk Library.

No CS or CS2. You'd think a clean install would rid the drive of everything.

interesting, I never thought of a receipt being written on the startup disk, thanks for that info

Only if you purchased a full retail license version of CS3, then you can sell your old one (with all its disks, and transfer of license)

If you purchased an upgrade version to CS3, then you cannot sell any of your old versions because you have only one license - all of the disks and versions are tied to your single-user license to use the product

Okay. That's what I needed to know. Now the other part- I am wondering if I got a full retail version with my upgrade. Go figure.
