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.

  • Get "Licensing for this product has stopped working" error on my New Mac with old Adobe software

    hi people, i've recently purchased a new machine and can't work out how to get Illustrator cs3 or photoshop cs5 working on it...
    photoshop says "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 administrator or Adobe customer support for help", which is strange as it said some different before i tried asking adobe support about this...
    illustrator says the same thing.
    customer support said i need to ask here because they can't provide support for these products.

    thanks for response, let's start the dialogue.
    what OS version?: OS version 10.9.3
    Have you deactivated Photoshop on the old machine? No, i am not inclined to try this as i do need a working version for work, customer support tells me that i've purchased a serial key but they won't tell me what it is, just that i could try using it...  can't find any reference to this on my machine though:(
    On how many computers have you (or someone else) installed Photoshop and register with your license?1 i think..
    Have you tried uninstalling, cleaning and re-installing? no, though i've tried to find out how and can't even manage that:(   went to the adobe site and could only find their creative cloud thing which requires me to pay monthly:/...
    thanks

    Mylenium,
    Before downloading CS4 again, how do I uninstall the versions that are currently on my Mac?
    Many thanks for your help!

  • 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.

  • Fresh Install Mac - Licensing for this product has stopped working  Error: 6

    We just got the new macbook pro refreshes at work and decided to make the switch to standalone CFBuilder.   We downloaded the trial and installed.  On launch we get this error, "Licensing for this product has stopped working  Error: 6".  Every macbook had the same result.   All are running 2 Ghz Quad Core i7 with 8GB of ram.   All of them get the same error.    All have a fresh install of 10.6.6.   Other than installing Air before the CFBuilder install they have no other applications installed.   Other than Air, there are no other Adobe products installed.  All CFBuilders were installed under an admin account.
    We've tried all the troubleshooting.   Permissions, LicenseRecovery, Setting the clock back to 2010... we even tried reinstalling OSX, then installing acrobat, then air, then CFBuilder with the same result every time.   We even activated the root account on the system and installed under root.  Same result every time.    The Flexnet service never gets created unless we use the License recovery tool.   If we install the updater it still makes no difference.
    All options for CFBuilder are grayed out under help.   Registration, Deactivation, Updates...
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for posting and letting me know. Yes, it is crappy to have to work-around it like that. I noticed when I installed
    Builder that it over-wrote some newer files, but I said "Okay to All". I'm using CS4 not CS5 and my newer files were probably better. I'm glad you got your program working at least. My problem is I started my first Project at the wwwroot level, like all the instructions say. It wasn't until I saw Ben Forta's video of it that I realized I was supposed to start a new folder within the wwwroot folder as my Project folder. Now I can't get rid of my first Project folder without DELETING all of the files in wwwroot, WHICH I CANNOT DO. MANY OF THE FOLDERS THERE ARE WORKING WEB SITES! If you know of any way to detach that original Project, I'd sure like to know how to do it.
    Thanks,

  • "Licensing for this product has stopped working" error message in OS 10.9.5 using CS4

    Before upgrading the patch in Mavericks my CS 4 was working seamlessly. Just since I downloaded the latest update have I started getting this message. Someone said that Mavericks did not support CS4, but I have been using it all along. I tried applying the Licensing Repair Tool that Adobe provides, but it only works on Power PC machines, and I have a later Mac Mini. Anyone out there resolve this without reinstalling the whole suite? Although I use the cloud for Photoshop, I am retired and cannot afford to pay the monthlies on the whole suite.

    Thank you. I will Google how to adjust the library permission to be compatible with legacy software, but if you have any pointers that would simplify the process, it would certainly be appreciated. I'll check back tomorrow when I've had a chance to reinstall. Thanks again!

  • After recovering from a crash CS4 says "Licensing for this product has stopped working"

    I am on a Mac Pro with Mavericks running. My system crashed and I had to rebuild it from scratch, though I did restore from a Time Machine backup.
    Any application I try out of CS4 gives me: Error: 6
    Where do I go from here?

  • Just updated my mac from Tiger to Mountain Lion. Loaded Photoshop elements 11 (brand new in the box) and when I try to start it - it comes up saying - Licensing for the product has stopped working contact for help.

    I just updated my mac from Tiger to Mountain Lion.  wiped the computer clean and started fresh Loaded Photoshop elements 11 (brand new in the box) and when I try to start it - it comes up saying - Licensing for the product has stopped working contact for help. in Looking for help I was directed here. what do I do?

    I don't know enough to not follow directions. I bought the software brand new in a sealed from factory box. Had it sitting around until - last week when I deleted flash on my computer and had to upgrade to the new OSX. Mountain Lion doesn't use iPhoto - so I had to go with something else. Since I already had this new - unopened package  I opened it up. Shut down all running programs - inserted the disk and followed all the directions for installation.  Still it didn't work.
    I have now uninstalled it (the proper way) and am going to try again.
    I appreciate your responses.
    Thank you!
    If this doesn't work - I am going to just buy Lightroom.

  • 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.

  • 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 rest

    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.

  • CS4 won't start up on my new computer. The error message I get is "Licensing for this product has stopped working."

    CS4 won't start up on my new computer. The error message I get is "Licensing for this product has stopped working."  Both the old and new computer are MACs and the error code I get is 150:30.  It says to restart the computer or open another application in the suite, but neither helps.  It says if nothing helps to contact Adobe support, but this is the only way I'm given to contact adobe support.  Can I really not use my purchased software on my new computer?  What do I do to activate the license on the new computer?

  • 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.
