Error 150:30, "Licensing for this product has stopped working"

I recently updated my Mac OS, and am getting error 150:30, "Licensing for this product has stopped working" on all my CS4 products. The license repair tool will not launch in Mavericks. Help?

CS4 is completely unsupported under Mavericks and using an upgraded
operating system is nothing short of a crapshoot.
Unfortunately, you are completely on your own here.

  • Can't start my old Photoshop CS4. Error:150:30 Licensing for this product has stopped working

    I can't use my PS CS4 because it seems the licensing has stopped working. I restarted the Mac few times but this error seems to persist.

    It's an extremely common error with CS4. It means the licensing is broken. For people not really familiar with Terminal, my best answer is to suggest a fresh install from your discs to fix this. You will have to reapply all updates.
    Since the Help > Update part is not working well, download and install your updates (Photoshop, Bridge, Adobe Camera Raw) from here Product updates.
    Usually this happens when Photoshop is moved from another computer, from a backup like Time Machine, or even as OSX upgrade to Yosemite.

  • How tError: 150:30 "Licensing for this product has stopped working"

    How can I resolve this...
    Error: 150:30 "Licensing for this product has stopped working" (Popped up when I tried to open an emailed jpg with Photoshop CS4). Restarted computer (iMac OS 10.9.5). No go. Message directed me to contact Adobe. How do you get a real person on the phone?

    It's a common error. The best fix is to reinstall Photoshop CS4 from the discs.
    If you do not have your discs, download the installer from here and have your serial number ready.

  • Error 148.3 (licensing for this product has stopped working)

    I received error 148.3 (licensing for this product has stopped working). I looked up the error, but the fix says it is only for "... Creative Suite 3 or 4 products, Acrobat 8 or 9, Photoshop Elements 6, 7 or 8, Director, and Technical Communication Suite." and RoboHelp is not mentioned. Is RoboHelp part of the Technical Communication Suite?  I tried phoning support, but the person had not even heard of RoboHelp. Does anyone know how I rebuild the license file? Note that Acrobat professional comes up okay. I need to compile soon for a product release and feel so frustrated.
    Thanks,
    Jacqui

    And we're back. Writing the question made me check what the Technical Communication Suite is. It includes RoboHelp, so I went ahead with the LicenseRecover as recommended on the Adobe site and the system now works.

  • Error message: 150:30 Licensing for this product has stopped working. Nothing here has worked. Now what?

    I get this message for all of my Adobe Creative Suite CS4 applications. Just loaded everything onto a new computer from my backup drive. I have tried all of the recommendations here. I don't know what to do now. None of the files exist that I'm supposed to either delete or change. The Licensing Repair Tool would not launch.

    You're welcome. It's kind of hard explaining Terminal scripts to newcomers, but you did very well.
    Check the illustrator forums on this one. Illustrator
    There is a downloadable installer for your suite if needed. Have your serial numbers ready if it comes to that.

  • Error message opening PS CS3 Extended : "Licensing for this product has stopped working"

    I used Migration Assistant to transfer data from my (very) old Mac OS X to a new iMac OS X Yosemite. Before doing so, I uninstalled my (also very old) PS CS3 Extended. When I tried to open PS on the new Mac it asked me to download Java, which I did. But now when trying to open PS again the error message is "Licensing for this product has stopped working". I purchased it about 5 years ago in a box which I no longer have, but I do have the complete 24 digit serial number. How best do I remedy this?

    Download the Photoshop CS3 installer Max or PC here. You should be good to go.

  • Transferring CS4 from an old Mac to a new one, I get a notice saying "licensing for this product has stopped working" Error 150:30. Don't know what to do? Thanks.

    I'm trying to migrate my CS4 from my old Mac to my new one. When trying to open photoshop, i get a message saying "Licensing for this product has stopped working." And "Error: 150:30" I don't know what to do from here. Can someone help me? Thanks.

    "Migrating" and/or "transferring" an application is not just asking for trouble but demanding it!
    Always install an Adobe application from scratch, from the original media: CD or download.

  • 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.

  • LICENSING FOR THIS PRODUCT HAS STOPPED WORKING. Error: 150:30.

    Yesterday I purchased a new MBPro 15" Retina display. I retrieved all my files from TimeCapsule and I have a separate login when working with these files. On this login, photoshop, illustrator and indesign from CS4 appear on the dock. But when I go to launch, I get this window: LICENSING FOR THIS PRODUCT HAS STOPPED WORKING. Error: 150:30. I figure I need to enter in my serial code but I don't know how to proceed. My CS4 from 2009 is an upgrade from my original 2004. So my questions are:
    1. Can I enter in my serial number somehow to activate the software, or do I need to reinstall?
    2. If I need a reinstall, do I have to start with the 04 version?
    Thanks!

    As you guessed yourself, you need to reinstall properly. Installing whatever older product you are referring to is not required, only installing CS4 and then inputting the serial numbers. the bad news however is, that CS4 itself may not be compatible with OSX 10.8.2/.3, so expect all sorts of problems...

  • 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).
    Cheers.

    Thanks!

    You haven't said what version of PSE you are using but the general solution to this problem is to re-install the product from your original disks.  Have you got the disks for your product and the related serial number?
