How do I reinstall Adobe Photoshop CS4 - I receive error 6 stating that licensing for this product has stopped working.

I previously installed Adobe Photoshop CS4 on my Macbook Pro. My hard drive crashed, and I had to get a new hard drive replaced. Now upon trying to reinstall CS4 from a backup copy CD (with licensing, serial number available), I receive an error 6 stating that the "licensing for this product has stopped working". Has anyone experienced this or know how to troubleshoot? Any advice appreciated. Thank you.

  • 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.

  • I've upgraded to Yosemite and Photoshop Elements 6.0 tells me that 'Licensing for this product has stopped'.

    It then recommends I uninstall and reinstall, which I did, but the new installation tells me the same thing.
    I know this software is six years old but it's seems to be the last version that allows web galleries with custom templates.
    The two questions are: Is Elements 6 incompatible with Yosemite? and: Is there a newer version that allows me to create web galleries with custom templates?
    TIA
    Luis

    Thanks for the link to Roaring Apps, that's very useful.
    However, although Roaring Apps states that it's incompatible, I've solved the problem and it does seem to be compatible.
    As the Photoshop Elements uninstaller seemed to have left things behind, I uninstalled using the brute force method, i.e. dragging everything that seemed to belong Photoshop Elements to the trash. As I have AppTrap installed, it also suggested I trash many other files it had found.
    I then reinstalled from the original disk and it works. The surprising thing is that it didn't ask me for the serial number which was the cause of the problem in the first place.
    Thanks again for your prompt help.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Need help with Photoshop and "Licensing for this product has stopped working" message. Adobe fix isn't working.

    I am still using CS3. A while back I received an error: "Licensing for this product has stopped working" for my CS3 programs. I used the recovery program suggested by Adobe and was able to get Illustrator, Flash and Dreamweaver to work, but I still can't open Photoshop or In Design. I went back to the Adobe site and did every other trick they suggested to fix the error, but nothing has worked.
    I then tried to uninstall photoshop from my CS3 suite (so I could reinstall) but got a JavaScript Alert: "Critical errors were found in set up. Please see set up log for file details." Seeing as I am not the best with the behind the scenes technical stuff, I have no idea what this means or where the set up log even is. Any help anyone can provide?
    I have had CS3 installed on my computer for over a year. I started having problems about 4 months ago.

    I am having similar problem.  Can't open any of CS3 programs after trying to download Dreamweaver Trial, which wouldn't work because "couldn't remove DLM extention" error message.  So now I can not run Illustrator, Photoshop, or even Adobe Reader.  These are properly licensed for about a year. I get "License for product has stopped working".  Have 2 pending cases open with Adobe support (one for Dreamweaver trial, one for license problem) since 8/3 with NO ANSWERS - It says answers within 1-3 business days.  Was on phone support hold today for over 3 hours before line went dead with no help.  What is up with adobe support?  Can anyone help?

  • 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 pro

    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.

    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.
