License for the product has stopped working

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

I keep receiving this error message again and again, whenever I try to start Adobe Photoshop. I have a licensed version and have made sure that the keys are correct.

Licensing for this product has stopped working. This product has encountered a problem which requires that you restart your computer before it can be launched.

If you continue to see this message after restarting your Computer, please contact either your IT administrator or Adobe Technical support for help, and mention the error code shown At the bottom of this screen Error: 150:30

I have restarted the application several times and I have restarted my PC also 2 times. Not sure how to get rid of this error message.

Any help is appreciated on this.

First you have to download the licensing service update. Using WinZip extract the contents of the zipped files. Click the license recover, follow the instructions; then start your Adobe application. After that you have to set the FLEXnet licensing service to manual; then start it.

To make this work try going to the Control Panel, click administrative tools, click services, click the FLEXnet Licensing Service to be able to open the Properties dialog box.

Go to startup, type menu ; then click the manual button. Click apply, then start the service. Again click apply ; then click ok. Now make sure that you close every open application, and launch your Adobe application.

The next thing you have to do is to rename the FLEXnet data folder. On the licensing service data folder, reset you permissions, and also on the Adobe PCD folder. Don’t forget to remove the SQlite journaling file.

For Vista users, try to synchronize virtualized and non virtualized pcd and other capsfile. Reinstall all Adobe CS3 and CS4 software. After all of this, try to contact the Adobe technical support to determine additional information about the failure.

Quit all Adobe applications.
On your startup disk, locate and delete the following folder : [hard drive] /Library / Preferences /FlexNet Publisher/
Important: The path above points to the Library folder, at the root of your startup disk, not the Library folder in your user home folder.
Important: Apple made the user library folder hidden, by default with the 10.7 release. If it's necessary to access these files to perform Adobe-related troubleshooting, use the instructions in the following document make the user library content visible: Access hidden user library files Mac OS 10.7 Lion.
Enter your password if asked to authenticate the folder deletion.
Start your Adobe applications.
