Reviving FH MX

Postby 3Don » Mon Jul 06, 2015 12:50 am

Intro...
I just now found this forum as a result of trying to solve a FreeHand problem. I sure am glad to be here!

I started out on Aldus FreeHand 2 (Macintosh) in 1990. I still have the 3.5" floppy disks it came on. I've used it up thru FH MX 2004.
As a graphic artist I LOVE FreeHand! It is the best all-around, graphic arts "Swiss Army Knife" app EVER. It is my all-time favorite computer program.
I was "art-broken" when the evil empire of Adobe bought it just to kill it.

I have had to upgrade my Mac OS's over the years but kept one computer going that would run FH as a Power PC program under OS X.5. That computer finally gave up the ghost and I am without FH. I bought a new Mac and had a new HD put in the old one and installed OS X.5 on it to run FH again. However, I have problems.

I found my MacroMedia Studio MX 2004 disk with FH, DreamWeaver, etc. I got the MM MX suite to load but cannot open FH or DW. Upon opening I get the Registration page. The online links to register are dead. The listed phone number seems dead, no answer. I cannot even choose the 30-day trial run and get it to open. I have the serial number etc.

Does anyone know how I can get FH MX to open and run on Mac OS10.5? How can I register if the links are dead?

I have reluctantly used Adobe Illustrator but do not like it. Better than nothing, but...
I can easily convert some FH files to AI but not all of them and I'd prefer not to have to. I have tons of files I'd like to be able to open and use FH again.

Any ideas?

Welcome and sorry for the late reply. The answer is that Adobe disabled the activation server for several Macromedia branded products, including FreeHand. They issued a Universal number instead. Read this page and use the new # and you will be good to go!

Thanx for the reply. After posting my message I dug around on this forum and found that link and was able to get my FH MX running again. I have set up a Mac with OS10.5 just to be able to run FH.
I'm sure glad to have found this site.
