I can't speak for CS, but I've installed CS2 on both my home computer and my laptop, and have never had to activate the second copy. In fact, Adobe's license for Photoshop alows you to install "up to five copies on portable devices."

There are, however, two catches:

1) The software must be installed from the original disks. Simply copying them from one computer to the other will leave you with a rather watered-down copy. Several functions and filters will be missing.

2) You cannot have more than one copy running at any time. If you try to launch the second copy, Photoshop will tell you that there is already a copy of the software with that authorization running, and it must be shut down before you can continue.

So what I think your error message is trying to say is that you cannot use that authorization #, because it has already been used.
