While you're hopefully not finding this out the hard way, you need a serial number if you plan on reinstalling your Adobe CS suite or a component of that suite.
Adobe requires a unique product key during installation or setup won't be able to continue. Depending on the version of Adobe CS we're talking about, you may get a 30 or 90-day trial, but that's certainly not what you paid for originally.

Find the Serial Numbers to Adobe CS Programs
A key finder program is the quickest, and overall the easiest, way to figure out what serial number was used to install your copy of Adobe CS or one of the member programs.
We've compiled an extensive list of free key finder programs for a number of completely free tools that will do all the hard work for you, surfacing the Adobe CS serial number you need so you can reinstall your copy of Adobe CS6 Master Collection or Adobe Photoshop CS5, etc.
Adobe Dreamweaver Cs6 Serial Number
We highly recommend working your way from the top to the bottom in that list of recommended key finders. Unfortunately, considering the long history of Adobe CS programs, one of those key finder tools may find the serial for one CS version, while another may find a different if you've had multiple versions of CS.
Will a Key Finder Tool Find the Serial Number for Any Adobe CS Program?
As mentioned above, the answer to this question is yes and no. One of our favorite serial number finder tools is Belarc Advisor, and we rarely come across a program that it won't find the serial number or product key for.
This program has a particularly strong track-record with digging up the serial numbers used for Adobe CS programs.
Specifically, we'd expect Belarc Advisor, and better keyfinder tools in our list, to find the serial numbers for both the suites and/or the individual programs for Adobe CS6, Adobe CS5, Adobe CS4, and Adobe CS3.
That includes the serial numbers for Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition, and all those other wonderful Adobe design and production tools.
Other Ways of Finding a Lost Adobe CS Serial Number
There are other ways to find a lost serial number, but be sure to give the keyfinder method a try first. Some of those programs will find the serial number for your Adobe CS products without you even having to install the tool. Those are portable programs that you can even run from places like a CD or flash drive — we mention which are made that way in our reviews.
To the question, however, yes — Adobe stores their CS serial numbers in the Windows Registry, inside a particular registry key. Unfortunately, that key contains your Adobe CS serial number in an encrypted format, meaning it's useless without some complex decrypting.
If a keyfinder tool is just out of the question, we recommend contacting Adobe directly. Your best bet is to start with their tutorial on how to find your serial number.
Adobe CS Serial Number Generators
Honestly, you might be able to generate a working free Adobe CS serial number using one of those serial number generators that are out there.
There are many different kinds that seem to work just fine for lots of Adobe products. Some will create a free product key and others will pair a key with a hacked DLL file, usually amtlib.dll, that lets you convert a trial version to a full version for free.
Unfortunately, as appealing as that may be, these programs are often full of malware, and the Adobe CS serials they create are not legalsince they weren't actually purchased. Under no circumstances should you go this route!
The only legal method you have at your disposal, assuming you don't want to or can't use one of the find-it methods we've mentioned above, is to buy a brand new copy of Adobe CS.
