Adobe Photoshop CS4 message: "Licensing for this product has stopped working." I have the serial number but not the media. How do I use the software?

I recently tried to use Photoshop CS4 that I have on my computer but I get the message:"Licensing for this product has stopped working." I have the serial number but not the media. How can I use this version?

You can get the installer here: Download CS4 products
It will install as a fully functional 30 day trial. Entering your serial number will convert it to a permanent version, Standard or Extended, depending on what serial number you purchased.
If you still have the license problem. get back to me with your OS details and the error code.

    I had to restore my iMac from Time Machine. After the restoration all programs are functioning except my Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium. When I start any program in the suite the error message, "Licensing for this product has stopped working." I restarted the computer and tried again to run Photoshop and the same error message appeared. The message was followed by a message that stated that I needed to contact Adobe technical support and mention Error: 150.30. I need Adobe technical support to provide me a solution for my problem so I can continue using my Adobe products installed on my computer.

    Unfortunately when Adobe products are restored from backup, especial CS4 and especially Mac, it breaks licensing.
    There is a python script included in the license recovery kit that should work if you are familiar with Terminal.
    If not, you must reinstall your CS4 suite.  You don't need to delete your preferences, so it should be the same as before.

    trying to launch photoshop cs3 on a mac running OS10.6.8 i keep getting the error message: Licensing for this product has stopped working  you cannot use this product at this time. You must repair the problem by uninstalling and then reinstalling this product or contacting your IT adminstrator or Adobe customer support for help
    I already Uninstalled and reinstalled the product and it still does not work.

    Hi,
    Try to uninstall the software again and you have to manually
    Delete the following folders:
    [Startup Disk]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe PCD
    [Startup Disk]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/caps
    [Startup Disk]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/backup
    [Startup Disk]/Library/Preferences/FLEXnet Publisher/
    [Startup Disk]/Library/Application Support/FLEXnet Publisher/
    Go to Applications-->Utilities-->Disk Utility, Open it and Select the MAC HD and then click on Repair permissions.
    After that try to run the cleaner tool as mentioned by kglad.
    Restart machine and then try to install again.
    *** Make sure , you only delete these folders if there is no other adobe applications installed on the machine. As if you have any other Adobe application of the suite ( not free applications ) then it will be a problem.

  • Why  will photoshop not open after loading it to new iMac computer from an external hard drive and I get this message: Licensing for this product has stopped working:error code: 150:30

    Why will Photoshop CS4 not open after loading to new iMac from an external hard drive and I get this message: Licensing for this product has stopped working:error code: 150:30

    A Photoshop installation is tied to the machine it was installed on. Moving it to or from a hard drive breaks the licensing.
    The answer is easy: Reinstall CS4 from your disc. and apply all updates.

  • Photoshop Elements 6 Licensing for this product has stopped working.

    Hello,
    I have just done a clean install of Snow Leopard (after wiping my hard disk), then restored my system (without applications) from my Time Capsule. I have then successfully re-installed most of my software.
    However, after re-installing Photoshop Elements 6 from the original DVD, I get the following error message:
    Licensing for this product has stopped working. You cannot use this product at this time......
    This appears as soon as I attempt to run the program from my Applications folder and Elements closes as soon as I click OK and does not allow me to input my license key.
    Anyone any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Philip.

    Hiya Philip M,
    most Adobe products work by the licencing system installing some sort of "correct" answer-code when adobe connects to verify the authenticity of your product. I think, you may have to contact Adobe.
    When I ran Macromedia Dreamweaver, you were able to "transfer licence" (PRIOR to uninstalling from one machine and installing on another), which would send the signal to "free up" the correct (and authentic) licence and then install on your other machine. This facility has been removed (no doubt to protect the product) and I had to pay for a new disk (a bit of a pain); maybe you are luckier but check adobe's help site:

    good luck

  • Can't run FW CS3! "Licensing for this product has stopped working."

    I purchased and downloaded FW CS3 this morning. I received my
    serial number and once the file had completed downloading I ran the
    installer. Everything seems to be working fine, and the install
    finished without a hitch. I then tried to open the application as
    was greeted with the following error message:
    Licensing for this product has stopped working.
    You cannout use this product at this time. You must repair
    the problem by unistalling and then reinstalling this product of
    contacting your IT administrator or Adobe customer support for
    help."
    I've unistalled (using the adobe utility) and reinstalled
    twice without any luck.
    I'm on OS X 10.4.9 w/an Intel Core Duo and 1GB of ram. I had
    previously installed the Fireworks CS 3 Beta, but uninstalled it a
    month or so ago.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Shaun,
    This is a user to user forum. You'll need to contact Adobe
    Customer
    Service to have this resolved.

  • Licensing for this product has stopped working - Acrobat 9 Pro Trial Edition

    Before committing to purchase of 50 licenses for the office, I though I'd better make sure Acrobat 9 Pro works on my laptop. Nyet
    I am totally frustrated by spending 20 minutes installing the package, only to get a "licensing for this product has stopped working" "You cannon use this product at this time"
    I've reinstalled - twice
    I've followed instructions relative to Flexnet service.
    Anyone have a do this and Acrobat 9 will work list of instructions - preferably something that will work in a batch file since I don't want to spend two weeks getting the units on our network to work with Acrobat 9.
    TIA

    OK - or i should say not OK!!
    I am running the licensed version of Acrobat 9 Pro on Mac OSX. It is installed on 2 of my MacBook Pro 17" laptops. These machines are respectively 1 month and 14 months old, and both are completely up-to-date software wise. 3 weeks ago Acrobat presented the error message "Licensing for this product has stopped working" and then quits. Searching through the error logs reveals the following: No matching processes were found. Shutting down licensing service ...
    I have meticulously, several times worked through all the recommended steps on the Adobe site to address this issue but to no avail. Booting up in safe mode makes no difference. In desperation I re-installed the OS, but to no avail. My several and extended communications with Adobe online help have left me chatting with what sounded like a couple of uni students from India who had insufficient understanding of English, Macs and Acrobat. After 3 weeks my case has been closed twice by Adobe who report that they believe my issue is resolved and have therefore closed my case. Great!!! What's more, occasionally Safari is presented online with a pdf file which it attempts to load, and then crashes.
    This issue has seriously affected my ability to work with and create pdf's which in my work as a medical researcher is essential. To add insult to injury, I have wasted too many precious hours attempting to rectify the situation.
    The bottom line is caveat emptor (buyer beware). Adobe it seems are committed to making a sale but not to follow-up, service or genuine concern for their customers. When some company produces a less buggy (and cheaper) alternative I will be definitely be buying their wares.
    In the interim, if anybody out there can advise me as to how to get Acrobat working again, I would be most grateful.
    Have a great day.

    I need to know how to fix my AI - the app quit working & gave me an error message:
    Licensing for this product has stopped working.
    You cannot use this product at this time. You must repair the problem by uninstalling & reinstalling this product or contacting your IT administrator or Adobe customer support for help.

    It means what it says - reinstall. You haven't provided any system information or other details, so nobody can tell you more than that, anyway.

  • How to fix "Licensing for this product has stopped working - Error 150:30"?

    I cannot pen PSE or Bridge. It get the message "Licensing for this product has stopped working - Error 150:30".
    I assume it is because I recently upgraded my Mac to Yosemite.
    What do I need to do to be able to open PSE again?
    Thank you.

    Thank you. I appreciate your tips. I tried solution 5 and it doesn't work.
    The rest is essentially gibberish to a basic user like myself. I have
    neither the expertise nor the confidence to go into these folders and start
    mucking around in there. Can I please have someone call me and guide
    through the necessary steps. My number is 06 46 40 94 39 (Location: France).
