    Are you trying to activate a downloaded stand alone trial version with your retail box serial number?

    I had downloaded a couple of the CS3 applications and used them on trial basis before I bought the CS3 Web Premium. And when I installed the rest and tried to activate PS and DW they simply refused until I uninstalled the trial versions (using the uninstallers) and then reinstalled them from the retail box disk.

    Pixelmator seems really interesting but Seashore seems a bit simple.
