I have many questions, I have called Support,  they refuse to forward or give me Tech Support See Be

Hi,
I have many questions, and have had a very frustrating time to get in touch with the correct person.
I have called support twice, both times even though it was a technical question about cloud, they refused to forward my calls and told me there is NO technicall support for Cloud and that I have to place my questions here in the forum.
I am CONTINUALLY told to change my password, 2 and 3 times a week.  I am a sysAdmin, my passwords are a MINIMUM of 13 Char/UP/Lower/Number/Special Combo, always have been. They work out to a 100% approval in any algorythm checker.   Yes, I was one of the persons who had their password stolen which has caused me a tad bit of inconvenience, but such is life.   Is This Normal? I have gone on twitter a few times to verify the emails, I have got them so often.
My "Cloud Sync" Hasn't worked since PhotoShop's Site Closed, I know this beause I stored my 20gigs of files, .ai,  and .eps, .psd eveything that I couldn't move to Revel (which btw, I never got a refund for having to purchase the revel account 20gigs, when photoshop was closed, which also was never refunded.) 
I actually wasn't too worried about the cloud issue because I only work at home, if I go somewhere else.. work's not going with me
Since about three weeks ago and currently I am having NOTHING but problems with cloud, The errors in my Event Log are NUMEROUS
Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CC\Dreamweaver.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "" on line .

manifest for x86/64bit at both dll files compiled so I cannot review their content.
However it should be noted at this time, I did not invoke Dreamweaver, the Cloud did, and this is not the first time.
This particular error occured 5 times in 3 seconds.
Same two errors at 3:49pm on the 28th.
Today, I went and bought a new solid state drive. Brand New Fresh OS, Downloaded Cloud, CC, and of course The Edge Products, which I dearly love btw.       Everything seems to be working fine, EXCEPT,
1.) where did CS6 Products Go?
2.) Why after being a Faithful Product User/Cloud Supporter for the Last two years, after going through all the trials and tribulations with Adobe, am I being asked to renew my license for a "One Time Per Year Fee" which is MORE than my monthly amount? ( deal: 599.80; payments at 49.95 per month is 599.40 Go Figure? ) So, I'm being asked to pay the same amount, make it a single payment and get half the software, litterally.   Did I miss a paticularly important anouncement?
3.) EVERYONE OF MY IRREPLACABLE FILES IN MY CLOUD ALL MY AI FILES, are gone. Yesterday, it would seem My having the SYNC TURNED OFF was over-ridden by the system (Adobes) and they have upload 'garbage' files, and my original files, the caligraphy files are no longer there. My gorgeous image of a little boy with flowers is no longer there. I PAID ALMOST A GRAND for these files. Stored them on Adobe, because, well, you deal with images, so you're the best right, that's why I bought extra storage on photoshop.com, then was told I would have to move to revel, but not the ai, eps, or pdf and i don't remember about png's. files, so I moved everything to revel (purchased the extra storage there.) AND put everything on the cloud and turned off my file sync.  Not everyone is an idiot, maybe something is turned off, there's a reason for it, how dare someone override MY SETTINGS. They could have emailed, called, chat, google chat, irc, or snail mailed me, it's pretty easy to get my attention.
I could just cry.
lost my files,
asked to pay one time instead on monthy, and there's not even a discount and no additional incentive. Lost the ability to work without having to be connected to the internet, which will be delimited here very shortly since I'm on comcast.
and the worst, the very absolutely worst part is this is the SECOND time in a row now, I've had an issue with Adobe that has gone on for over a year while support TELLS ME A PAYING CUSTOMER, that 'gee, sorry, no support for cloud" , "No I can't forward you to a tech" (direct quote) and "The Only support for any cloud issues is the forum"
How can I handle this in the future, my nerves just can't take it anymore. Seriously, I'm just shaking now I'm so upset about this and I really hate writing something like this, or airing issues in public that really should be, imho, private.

Hi Ken,
Wow, I've logged into adobe and never seen your response until now.
I need to make the forums more of a daily stop I guess.
Thank you for your response, When I go to the Archives, it states I have none. In addition, previously when I'd tried to move items to the archive, they just disappeared  
Currently my desktop is not connecting at all, Everytime I connect, it's states "We have now logged you out" and requests I login again.
I have of course rebooted,
Gone into taskmanager, killed all the relevant threads,  tried again to login through the desktop, no luck, I'll have to uninstall it, make sure the threads are killed, then reboot it and then reinstall it, but I've not had the time to do that.
On another note, and just as a point of reference, myself, personally, I hate these "cloud" file repositories (not to be confused with adobe cloud services which I love) but the file repositories themselves imho, are a blackhole of resource usage when one doesn't/isn't using them,
Is there a way we can use it more of a "ftp" sort of thing, when I want to I can  put files there?  There is no way to "Download" the repository, no way to download the folders.. only individual files and then it takes I think three different steps before the download starts.. I find this very inhibiting.  Just an fyi. for what it's worth.
Please, feel free to contact me,
I'm on g+ chat [email protected]

    Hi there I have a question I have bought a mixing console
    From Yamaha
    It’s the MG 166cx USB
    I have connected it to my Mac book pro
    And I am getting very little sound coming back from it into the mixing board
    I have already messed around with a lot of volumes
    And it keeps coming in into the mixing board very low
    All I am using to listen to is the head set that is plugged in to the mic jack on the mixing board I think I am going to eliminate this mixing board or something because I am already getting fed up with it any comments?

    You might get better answers by posting our question on the MacBook forum as your question seems to have nothing to do with iPods.
    You might also see if the manufacturer has a support forum.
    Best of luck.

  • TS5185 I can't deregister iMessage from my account since I no longer have my iPhone.  I recently changed to a Samsung S4.  Anybody know of any solutions?  Apple support wants me to buy a one time tech support.  This is something I don't want to resort to.

    I can't deregister iMessage from my account.  I no longer have my iPhone.  I have a Samsung 4S and cannot receive text messages with data that come from someone else's iPhone.  Apple support wants to charge a one time tech help fee.  I don't want to resort to this.  Can any one help?

    Call back and explain that you are not attempting to get troubleshooting support for the device, but for the iMessage service, which is related to iCloud, and they should be able to grant an exception for that.  The $19 fee is supposed to be only for troubleshooting a hardware issue, not for a service issue.
    For example, you can have an iTunes account without even owning an Apple device.  I can use iTunes on my Windows PC.  There's no hardware to support, so the 90-days limitation doesn't apply.
    If they refuse to offer support, then ask for a Senior Advisor.

  • Anyone know how to remove Overdrive books from my iphone that have been transferred from my computer? They do not show up on itunes. I see a lot of answers to this question but they all are based on being able to see the books in iTunes.

    How do I remove Overdrive books from the library that were downloaded onto my computer then transferred to my iphone? The problem is that they do not show up in iTunes.
    I see this question asked a lot when I google, but they always give answers that assumes you can find the books in iTunes either under the books tab, or the audio books tab or in the music. They do not show up anywhere for me. They do not remove from the app like the ones I downloaded directly onto my iphone.the related archived article does not answer it either.  I even asked a guy working at an apple store and he could not help either.   Anybody...?
    Thanks!

    there is an app called daisydisk on mac app store which will help you see exactly where the memory is focused and consumed try using that app and see which folders are using more memory

  • Upgraded to Firefox 4 and now the program I many alarm dealers use with Rapid Response Monitoring no longer works. RR Tech support said it had something to do with a change in Java not working with Firef 4

    Rapid Response Monitoring Center developed a program for their dealers to log on to the main frame and look at customer info. The program now has a disclaimer on the log-on page Does not work with FireFox 4. RR tech support said it had to do with Java functions that were not continued in FF4. I can log on but the program will no longer display customer history or anything that seems to have a data base behind the function tab.
    See www.rapidweb2000.com or call 1-800-932-3822 and ask for tech support for additional info about what they have found is the problem.

  • Thinking about moving to X1 platform, but have many questions.

    So, for the last two months, I have been getting emails offering me a free "upgrade" to the X1 platform.  My current setup:3 Tivo DVR's - two 4 tuner and one 2 tuner  Mainly use one of the 4 tuner boxes and the 2 tunerStandard def cable box that is not connected, 105Mbit Internet, Xfinity Voice The Tivo's work real good, but are costly at nearly $60/month for their service Plus the 9.99 cable card fee each. My questions on X1 If I were to go to a single X1 DVR, and two X1 "Terminal Boxes" (That's what the local xfinity store called them), What do the terminal boxes use from the main DVR?  To clarify, If the DVR is recording 4 channels I was told it could view one other.  In a situation like that what could the Terminal boxes view at that time?  Could they only see one of the 5 channels (the four recorded ones or the live one) or could they stream something else that was recorded earlier?  Could they stream on demand content or streampix content?   The local xfinity store said I could only have 1 X1 DVR in my household, but from what I've been reading here, several people seem to have two, so was the rep at the local store wrong? Thank you in advance for any answers or recommendations.   Rick  

    The situation in regards to available tuners and recordings is changing rapidly. X1 DVRs just activated the 6th tuner and they placed a priority on recording over live TV. So at the moment you can record 6 programs as long your are watching one of the 6 recordings.
    There are two X1 Companion boxes. The Xi3 is the more desireable Companion box but it does "steal" a tuner from the X1 DVR in order to watch live TV. Please study the comparison because it will answer your questions: http://customer.xfinity.com/help-and-support/cable-tv/x1-hub-vs-companion-box/
    Multiple DVRs are allowed in most markets but some still don't. I have three but I had to pull strings. Please be aware that multiple X1 DVRs are not independent. They pool their resources. You cannot "hide" the recording list on one DVR from the other X1. You can prevent the actual playback but all X1 boxes in the house will see the record list on all DVRs.
    Pricing aside, most people would agree that TiVo is a vastly superior DVR to the X1 DVR. The X1 DVRs have an almost appalling lack of basic features and flexibility. They have almost no adjustments over guide views. Ability to customize favorites is extremely limited and inflexible.
    I would STRONGLY recommend that you spend more time reading in this forum. I also think that you should go to a Comcast location (or a friends house) and test X1 before you order.

  • Love the Cloud Idea, but I have Many questions about it

    Hi,
    I love the Adobe Cloud Idea, but I was wondering if it is the right for me. I have a very peculiar situation, my job takes me to many different places around the world.
    - My Next job is taking me to Peru and I noticed that it is not on the available countries. I live in the US and I will subscribe from here, but if I go to Peru, would I be able to use it from there, before the 30 day renewal? And what about If I spend 3 month? I read somewhere that I ony have to have an internet connection, but does that mean that if I am in peru with internet nothing will happen? or does it mean that I ned an internet connection and able to be in a country that it is available? and how does the 30 day work? if I am subscribed, do I need to re do everything or it basically confirms that I have "cloud installed" and then just charges me?  
    - Another question that I have is more about how does the subscrition work. I subscribe from my Deskop, can I use it on my laptop? The question goes mainly because sometimes I work from home on my desktop, sometimes I use my laptop at work, sometimes on my lapotp in a different country and sometimes with someone else laptop. So am I able to go back and forth from desktop to laptop and different computers?. I think technically the question is, The subscription is for the Account Or is it for the IP address meaning that only one computer can use it.
    - Something that was told to me at work but was definetly differentfrom my understanding is the subscrition. My understanding was that I can use it for a month, pay that month, the next month unsubscribe - don't pay, and the next one pay it again and be able to use it. Somebody from work told me that they are annually and not monthly. I though you had both options, which one is true? 
    Thank you!

    Thank you for the quick reply Preran.
    You actually answered one of my questions but I think it brought a couple more.
    I thought that the 49.99 dol subscription monthly included everything in cloud and not just one of the software and the link that you sent me only talks about one  and it is a different pricing
    Subscription editions
    One-year plan*
    Month-to-month plan
    Photoshop®
    US$19.99 per month
    US$29.99 per month
    and then It talks about
    Or get it all and more with an Adobe Creative Cloud™ membership.
    and when you go there it gives me a completely different price
    Membership
    Annual plan*
    Month-to-month plan
    Adobe Creative Cloud
    US$49.99 per month
    US$74.99 per month
    And not only that when you go to the cloud page what it says is something completely different sayng that you can do the whole package for the 49.99 price.
    This is something that even though it's not a huge issue, But I watched a lot of videos for the realease of this all with Adobe spokepersons and the way it was advertised was that you can pay 49.99 for one month have it all and the next month if you don't want to use it you don't have to and come back in another month and it will be the same with the 49.99. again I love the idea, but that for me was false advertising and really got me nervous about it because I do not know what will happen in the Future with all of this.
    Everything I do usually comes from my own pocket my job pays for my some stuff but I am a contractor for them so the whole cloud Idea was brilliant I would include the 50 dollars in the pricing for that job whneI get a job from them, WIth the Info I am getting I would first have to pay more and not only that I am stuck Paying the 50 dollars for a year which comes to less than buying the softwae but still means that even If I am not working on it I would still have to pay.

  • IPhoto 6: Just installed and have many questions!

    I have just installed iLife 06, and my life seems to be much more difficult. Am I missing something here? Hope someone can help me.
    1) When I installed iPhoto 6, I was asked to upgrade my Library so that iPhoto 6 can read it, so I did. What I noticed it did, was to replace the files that were originally sorted out by Date folders in iLife 05 to 2 main folders Originals and Modified, then sub folders by year then by Roll. I like the old way of organizing by date, because that way I am able to find my photos in the hard drive quite easily. How should I find my photos now in the hard drive? Why did Apple decide to organize the photos by Roll instead of by date?
    2) When the library is updated to Version 6, I understand that the library will not be opened in iPhoto 5 anymore. But for some logistic reasons, I need to be operating using iLife 05 in my iBook for the next 1 year. What should I do now? Do I have to re-import the jpg files into my iPhoto 5 and retag all my keywords to the photos and lose all my previous organization?
    3) There are a few photos that have lost the link to the original photos: i.e. I can see the thumbnails in iPhoto Library, but when I tried to see in edit view, it shows no photos. How can I correct that? How can I locate all photos that have broken link?
    4) There are at least 20 photos in my Library that when I try to open them in Edit view, iPhoto would crash. Why is that so? Are the photos corrupted?
    Hope someone can enlighten me. It seems that iLife 06 gives me more problem than iLife 05. Can I reinstall iLife 05 back? If yes, how?

    How should I find my photos now in the hard drive?
    This new system comes in with iPhoto 6, and is expected behaviour. If you wish, you can set up your own file structure and still work with iPhoto 6, but in the meantime to find your files you can
    1: Right (or Control) -Click on a pic and select 'Show File'. A new Finder window will open with the file selected.
    or
    2. Export the files to the Desktop (File -> Export)
    or
    3. Drag and Drop the pics to the desktop (or indeed any folder where you want them)
    Of course, exporting and dragging and dropping will create a copy of the pic at the destination.
    iPhoto is designed so that everything you need to do can be done via the iPhoto WIndow. It is strongly advised that you do not move, change or in anyway alter things in the iPhoto Library Folder as this can cause the application to fail and even lead to data loss
    Do I have to re-import the jpg files into my iPhoto 5 and retag all my keywords to the photos and lose all my previous organization?
    Unfortunately, yes. iPhoto 5 cannot read the v6 library.
    There are a few photos that have lost the link to the original photo
    Try rebuilding the thumbnail and Library database - hold down the apple and option key when you launch the app and the resulting dialogue box will give you the maintenance options.
    There are at least 20 photos in my Library that when I try to open them in Edit view, iPhoto would crash. Why is that so? Are the photos corrupted?
    They may be, though I don't know why. Do you have Graphic Convertor? Try export them or drag and drop them to the desktop, open them in GC and use Save As to save them as jpegs again. Then re-import them. This sometimes works.
    It seems that iLife 06 gives me more problem than iLife 05. Can I reinstall iLife 05 back?
    Yes you can. Simply drag the app to the trash, then go to HD/Library/Receipts and trash any file there with iPhoto in the title. Then re-install 5 from your original disk. However, while there may be a learning curve, in my experience 6 is superior in every way to 5, faster, more features, more stable.
    If you have any more questions, feel free to ask
    Regards

  • Acquired PB; now have many questions

    I have a great PB 40GB 800 mhz model from Ebay but the owner left all his documents, files, etc. He said he had everything that he needed from it. My questions are:
    This laptop has 10.3.9; I have install disks for Tiger. Will the installation of Tiger just wipe out all his files, etc. without me having to take extra steps?
    How, if possible, can I keep the Filemaker Pro, Photoshop and Illustrator that he left?
    Can I keep some of the music in his iTunes by just copying onto external USB drive?
    When trying to "Get Info" about the specs the button doesn't activate. Does this happen because the battery is so low and needs replaced? (I got a warning that the PB is operating on backup battery. I've already tested that the backup battery is good; the clock settings remained current)
    It's pretty dirty/dusty; Is there a cleaning process that's recommended for the display, case and inside the keyboard?
    If I'm moving with a friend that has wired PC setup, and DSL connection how do I go wireless on the Internet?
    Also, he wants to switch to a VOIP phone setup like I have. Will a modem accommodate all that?
    I'm sorry if these questions are redundant. I just figured I'd include them all at once here.

    Hi Todd,
    This laptop has 10.3.9; I have install disks for Tiger. Will the installation of Tiger just wipe out all his files, etc. without me having to take extra steps?
    Yes, if you choose Erase and Install, it will erase everything currently on the HD and install Tiger.
    How, if possible, can I keep the Filemaker Pro, Photoshop and Illustrator that he left?
    That would not be legal if he did not include the original discs.
    Can I keep some of the music in his iTunes by just copying onto external USB drive?
    Again, that would not be legal.
    When trying to "Get Info" about the specs the button doesn't activate.
    No idea what you mean.
    I got a warning that the PB is operating on backup battery.
    Are you referring to the "You are now running on reserve power, plug in your PB immediately or your PB will go to sleep?"
    It's pretty dirty/dusty; Is there a cleaning process that's recommended for the display, case and inside the keyboard?
    First step in the process is being careful, especially inside the PB. Outside, you can use a very slightly dampened soft cotton type cloth and simply wipe it down. I prefer distilled water so it doesn't leave residue. Inside the keyboard, if you must, try a Q-tip.
    If I'm moving with a friend that has wired PC setup, and DSL connection how do I go wireless on the Internet?
    Does the PB have an internal AirPort card installed?

  • HT1918 Someone Hacked my account and now I have many charges on my credit card. How do I get to talk to support about this?

    My account seems to be hacked for I have over $200 in charges on my credit card that I didn't create - how can I get those stopped or cancelled and my money back?

    I had this happen, itunes won't do anything. You have to claim it through your credit card and change your itunes password. I was able to cancel some pending orders but itunes support was not able to help at all. It took them three days to respond. I was also able to change the shipping address on an order and send it back.

  • Magnet destroyed my hard drive, I have many questions about my options.

    Ok, so I didn't realize my air condition remote was magnetic and I set it on my computer and bam my whole computer crashed. Now when I put my install dvd to boot up from, the drive makes some weird noises and then the DVD gets booted. And before you ask, its the drive needle making a sound and not the optical drive. I have a time machine backup from a few weeks ago so all my information is saved.
    So, I have insurance with state farm for accidental. If my claim goes through and apple installs the new drive, will I be able to get Lion back on my computer? I started out with snow leopard and installed lion via the app store.
    If for some reason doing the claim process will take forever or they don't accept it, as easy as this sounds can I just buy a new drive on amazon for like 50 bucks. (From what I looked at) Install the new drive myself and then bootup from the snow leopard dvd I have? Then log into the app store install lion and then hook up my external hard drive and restore my laptop back to its old self??? Or is it possible I can use a Lion time machine backup in snow leopard and when its done it'll be Lion?
    Thanks!

    Of course. If you have a Mid 2010 or newer MacBook Pro, you have OS X Recovery, that allows you to reinstall OS X Lion even if it's not installed in your hard disk. To start in Internet Recovery, hold Command, Option (Alt) and R keys while your computer is starting. In this mode you will be able to format the hard disk and install Lion.
    If you have an older computer, you will have to install Snow Leopard and upgrade to Lion. To do it, first update to OS X 10.6.8 in  > Software Update, and then, open App Store > Purchases to download Lion.

    If for some reason doing the claim process will take forever or they don't accept it, as easy as this sounds can I just buy a new drive on amazon for like 50 bucks. (From what I looked at) Install the new drive myself and then bootup from the snow leopard dvd I have? Then log into the app store install lion and then hook up my external hard drive and restore my laptop back to its old self??? Or is it possible I can use a Lion time machine backup in snow leopard and when its done it'll be Lion?
    You can do that without any problem. You can use a backup created in Lion with Snow Leopard, but it's not recommended because it's possible that Snow Leopard won't work correctly. You have to restore the backup after upgrading to Lion, or from Internet Recovery, so you won't have to install Lion
