I was wondering if it is easier to fool the Adobe Installer into giving a second and third etc 30 day trial of various product on Mac OS X 10.5 than it is on Windows. Is this doable? How so. I am expecting to get a PC version of CS4 soon possibly through a legit source, this is just for the interim.

Edit :

I am not a big fan of pirating, but as I stated above, I expecting a legit copy soon. Why the downvotes?

I'm sure you understand that this likely goes against EULA, etc. For information purposes, as posted here, quit all running CS4 applications and delete the file /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe PCD/cache/cache.db. Then restart a CS4 application and enter your new serial number.
