Can I have my creative cloud subscription on two computers?

I want to buy another computer for my office and I'd like to know if I can have my programs on both of my new and old computers?

Yes, you can. You have 2 activations.

    If I install creative cloud on my laptop now while on vaction, can I also install it on my desktop at home with ONE subscription or would I have to subscribe twice?

    Hi there
    Yes, you can install and activate Creative Cloud desktop applications on two computers, regardless of operating system, for the individual associated with the Creative Cloud membership.

  • Can I transfer my Creative Cloud subscription to another Adobe account?

    How do I transfer my account to another email address that already has an Adobe account? We are a business and have a Creative Cloud subscription setup to a specific email address. We want to transfer this license to another employee as the existing one was laid off.  How do we go about doing this?

    Hi JimmytheBullet,
    If you are a Creative Cloud for Team user then you can simply remove the user from Admin console and invite another to be the team member. If it is Creative Cloud individual subscription then I am sorry to say but you cannot transfer the account to another.

  • I have a creative cloud subscription for myself and 2 other colleagues but cannot add the other 2 colleagues as users. How do I do this?

    Hi American,
    I checked you account and I found that you just have 1 seat in your Creative Cloud account. You need to add a license from the top right corner on your Team admin page.
    You can follow the article: Creative Cloud Help | Manage your Creative Cloud for teams membership which will help you to add a license in your Team account.
    Let us know if you face any troubles while doing that.

    i have bought creative cloud subscription but it will not download app onto my desktop.
    Can anyone help me?

    We cannot know. Even calling your post would be an exaggeration/ understatement, depending on how you want to see it. We need hard technical facts - operating system, computer specs, what is the exact error/ problem and so on.

  • My trial is about to expire despite the fact that I have a Creative Cloud subscription

    Since installing the beta I get a message saying my trial is about to expire despite the fact that I have a Creative Cloud subscription. Also I have two Adobe IDs and despite trying to change the default it keeps switching back to the one that doesn't have the CC sub. Also in About Muse it says I am on v3.1 Build 8, is this correct?

    Any help on this from Muse staff would be appreciated

    Hello , can you with a single account creative cloud , install on two computers ? (The one from home and one at work)

    Yes, this has been allowed with Adobe applications going back many years.  A program such as Photoshop can legally be installed and activated on two computers at a time for the use of the single licensed user.  You can't install legally on your own and a friend's computer for use by the two different people.  Prior to Creative Cloud, there was an unwritten limit on how many times a given application could be activated, but there is no longer such a limit under CC.  That means you could theoretically install on three or four computers, activating only two at a time, and then deactivating one or both before activating on another computer.

  • Can I use my Creative Cloud subscription between a PC and a Mac?

    The questions is pretty much that. I have a PC and a Mac laptop. I'd like to be able to switch between the two depending on where I am. Is this an option, as long as I have the programs / trial installed on both machines?

    Yes you can install the software on MAC and PC both, with creative cloud subscription you will get 2 activation and work simultaneously on both the machines.

  • Can I have multiple Creative Cloud under one account?

    If we are a business and want to buy multiple copies of Creative Cloud, I was told that I needed to create an different AdobeID account for each copy of Creative Cloud. Is that right?

    Thats right for the Creative Cloud individual edition you need to have for each Creative Cloud Subscription a seperate AdobeID.
    Can I buy more than one membership to an individual offering of Creative Cloud?
    No, Adobe has moved to identity-based licensing with a technology that will not support multiple same-product subscriptions, so you can only buy one membership per Adobe ID.  If you need two subscriptions to Creative Cloud, you will need to purchase each subscription with a unique Adobe ID.
    When you install your software, you will be required to enter the same Adobe ID that you used when purchasing your membership, for the following reasons:
    To help ensure that the person who subscribed is the same person who is installing the software
    To enable Adobe to send you important account information in the event your subscription is about to expire or cannot be charged to your credit card

  • URGENT!!! CS6 programs keep saying "trial expired" even though I have a Creative Cloud subscription.

    My CS6 programs keep saying that the trial edition is expired, even though I payed for my Creative Cloud subscription.
    I have a deadline tonight, and really REALLY need indesign to work!!!.
    Please help me!!
    I already tried the License Recoverer. Did not work, not even after a reboot and pressing 0...
    Arteau / Kezumi

    I'm having the SAME PROBLEM!!!
    I know for a FACT that it is NOT something on my system because it ONLY happens with InDesign… ALL of the rest of the software from Creative Cloud works PERFECTLY.
    I signed up for Adobe Creative Cloud on October 31, 2012 and I checked… my monthly payment was successfully made on Dec. 30th, so it SHOULD be up to date and working.… yet when I try to launch InDesign, instead of opening, I get a window that says,
    "Your Trial Has Expired… Become a member…, etc".
    My only choices from the Application Manager at this point, are to select the "Join Now" button… (Even though I've already joined)… OR I can select the "License This Software" button… WHICH I've already done SEVERAL TIMES previously. But if I do select this button, it APPEARS to Activate my Subscription… AGAIN.
    At this point, after I select the "Close" button from the "SUBSCRIPTION ACTIVATED" window… I get ANOTHER window, saying that I have 0 days remaining to use the InDesign Trial software, giving me the option to BUY NOW, and there is also a button to "Start Trial" or another "License This Software" button…
    If I select the "License This Software" button… it will once again APPEAR to Activate my Subscription… AGAIN. But then it once again gives me this same window again… starting the WHOLE process over and over and over again.
    I tried running the update to InDesign, to see if this would resolve the problem… but it STILL gave me these SAME annoying windows over and over and over. I un-Installed InDesign and downloaded it again but it still does the SAME THING OVER AND OVER.
    I've downloaded and used Photoshop, Illustrator, Muse, and Dreamweaver from Creative Cloud… some were downloaded BEFORE I downloaded InDesign and some were downloaded after I had the trouble with InDesign but NONE of the other software gives me this problem. It's ONLY with InDesign.
    PLEASE HELP!!! I have a big job due and all of the work that I've already completed on this project was done with the so-called "Trial" version and I can't even open the file with my old version of InDesign. So I'm STUCK without it… It worked GREAT until this "TRIAL" period ran out… I subscribed  before I ever downloaded ANY of the Creative Cloud software, so I don't know why it was EVER consisdered a TRIAL to start with.
    Thanks for any help you can give!

  • Can't Activate my Creative Cloud Subscription -- SERIOUS HELP NEEDED!!!

    For the past 3 weeks, I've been trying to activate my Creative Cloud subscription (placed my Creative Cloud order on 12/29/12).  Like others, it appears that I’m trapped in perpetual "trial mode" status.  When I try to activate my subscription -- I click the “register product” button…sign into my Adobe ID account…and receive a prompt to enter a serial number.  Every time.  I’ve litterally read every post/link/tutorial/troubleshooting selfhelp in this forum and on the Adobe FAQ pages - with great attention, might I add - but nothing seems to work.
    I've spent hours upon hours on the phone/live chat w/ Adobe reps trying to resolve this issue.  I've opened no less than 10 support cases.  EVERY SINGLE TIME that I try to activate my Creative Cloud membership, an Adobe rep feeds me the "I'll be sure to escalate this issue to the next level of support" line.  Likewise, Adobe support reps stated numerous times, that personnel from Adobe would contact me within 24 hours of my call to resolve the issue.  However, they’ve yet to follow through with this claim.  (Surprise)
    Adobe should be ashamed by the egregious performance of their "technical support team.”  If Adobe won't fix the software, which they've already charged me for, then they've left me w/ little choice but to cancel my order before the initial 30 day period is up.  Enough is enough.
    With that being said, Adobe, the following describes this dismal experience:
    I bought a subscription of Creative Cloud on 12/29/12 (somehow I ended up w/ the Multi Language edition of Creative Cloud- yes I've fiddled w/ the language settings in the app manager.  Doesn't work.)
    I received an order verification email from Adobe for my purchase, however, the order was never listed under the "my recent order" section of my Adobe ID
    Despite telling Adobe support that I only had one Adobe ID, they insisted that my order was showing up in their system, of which, was accessible by logging into my alternative Adobe ID (this didn’t exist because I only have one Adobe ID).
    Eventually, Adobe determined that a system error occurred on their side while processing the transaction, and fixed this initial issue.
    After this was resolved, I was able to login to my Adobe ID account and actually see my Creative Cloud membership order when viewing “my recent transactions.”
    After all of that, I'm facing my 2nd major issue w/ this program: the inability to activate my subscription.  As previously stated, I've tried everything to fix this issue.  I'm thinking that the initial problem w/ placing the order resulted in defective software.  Also, I’m not sure if this info is relevant, but I purchased the multiple language edition of Creative Cloud (somehow).  I live in the US, speak English, and am running OS X 10.8.2.
    Someone from Adobe, please look into this issue and help me.  I’ll be glad to provide any other relevant info that you may need.

    Had the exact same problem, just got it fixed. The solution is quite fast. Navigate to the hosts file. On a pc it's in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc folder, locate the file named 'Hosts' inside the etc folder. Open it with notepad. Delete everything underneath
    " # Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp. # # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows. # # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one # space. # # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol. # # For example: # # # source server # # x client host localhost"
    Save. Open the application manager again, click "License this product" and sign in. It should work, now.

  • How many computers can I have my Creative Cloud on?

    Hello, I just have a question. Since I use my Adobe programs for school and business. I have a Macbook Pro and an iMac that I have the creative cloud synced too. Im getting another Macbook Pro and was wondering if Id be able to sync that laptop with my programs too?

    Adobe has this given these hints: >>> Can I use the software I download from Creative Cloud on more than one machine? >>> Yes. Creative Cloud desktop applications can be downloaded and installed on multiple computers, regardless of operating system. However, activation is limited to two machines per individual associated with the membership. See the terms of use (General-terms) for more information. Learn how to deactivate (Activation & Deactivation Help) a Creative Cloud license on a machine.
    Moreover I quoute Preran: The Adobe ID is used for the activation process. Previously you could activate only on two instances of the same OS. That restriction has been removed. Also, if you log into a third computer on which you have installed CC, you are automatically logged out of one of the previous computers where you have logged in. (Re: With Flash CC can I install it on both my PC and Mac?)
    If still necessary and for further questions click through and if "open" please use the chat, I had the best experiences. I quote from Adobe's employee Preran: The chat button is activated as soon as there is an agent available to help.

  • Can I use my Creative cloud subscription on multiple devices?

    Hi, I am going to be subscribing to Creative Cloud but can I use that subscription on more than one device?
    I sometimes use my desktop, sometimes my laptop or tablet etc.  Will my Cloud subscription allow my to use the software on all my devices?
    Or is it a single device use only?
    Many thanks,

    A Cloud subscription allows you to have two working installations at a time.  You can sign out and sign in to enable other devices but the limit of two remains in force.  Whether or not you can install on all devices depends on whether or not the devices meets the system requirements for the software.
