I subscribed to Creative Cloud, but it's telling me I'm in Tryout mode

May 11, 2012 12:11 AM

I just subscribed to Creative Cloud. I downloaded a bunch of apps. Tried them all out. All was well.

But then I opened After Effects CS6 and it was telling me that I was in a Trial mode. Huh??

I then opened Adobe Illustrator CS6 and it's the same thing. What's going on?

 

The only thing I can think of is: I logged into my office computer (I did this at home so far) and downloaded from there as well.

Is it because I was signed in on my work machine that now my home machine is suddenly in trial mode?

I didn't have any of the applications opened in more than one place.

 

What's going on?

Branched to a new discussion.

    Hi All,

     

    What operating system are you using?

     

    I would recommend trying the steps mentioned below:

     

    1. Launch the application which says you are in trial mode.

    2. On the Creative Cloud application trial screen, click on "License this Software".

    3. Sign in with your Adobe ID associated with your Creative Cloud membership.

     

    Please reply to this thread if the issue persists.

     

    Thanks

    When i follow your steps, i finaly need to type in a serial number. For some reason Photoshop and Illustrator ar working fine now. Maby there is some soort of delay becouse it is so bussy today (a lot of foks are installing these apps now) so.. i wait and see.

    What I did is the following.

     

    I downloaded CS6 master collection trail which I have used the past week.

     

    Today I removed the compleet suite with: AdobeCreativeSuiteCleanerTool

     

    Downloaded the Adobe Application Manager and installed everything. Inbetween every step I restarted.

     

    When starting an application I choose license application.

    I have the same problem I using Mac OS X and Chrome for browser and when I go to my Creative Cloud page it ask me to upgrade if I want more storage and to access Business Catalyst. Just FYI my bank account shows that I pay already.

    Yes same problem with me.  It says that I have a full subscription in the order history / subscription area but when I try to go to things like Business Catalyst it says this:  https://img.skitch.com/20120511-818h48pw9t6sjnpdc3hjma3ekf.png .  Likewise in the top right of the CC area it tells me to 'Upgrade".

    Same problem here. My Creative Cloud account itself seems to be working just fine, since I can access Business Catalyst, Typekit etc., but whenever I'm trying to activate a CS6 app, it asks me for a serial number.

     

    I did uninstall the Photoshop CS6 beta and some CS5.5 trial versions beforehand, so those shouldn't cause any problems.

     

    I'm on an early 2009 iMac with OSX Lion and have a German education account.

    Same for me here. MacOsx 10.7.4. When I launch Photoshop and ask for licensing it, AAM ask for a licence key. I've try to remove all the old adobe products I have with "AdobeCreativeSuiteCleanerTool" and CleanMyMac, reboot and reinstall AAM and Photoshop CS6... Unfortunately I still have the problem.

    I think I have found a solution.

     

    Resetting the HOST file with this applescript:

     

    display dialog "Warning!! You are about to change your HOSTS file back to factory default. Click OK if you want to proceed and click Cancel if you want to abort now."

    if (button returned of the result) as text is "OK" then

     

      do shell script "echo \"##

    # Host Database

    #

    # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface

    # when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.

    ##

    127.0.0.1          localhost

    255.255.255.255          broadcasthost

    ::1             localhost

    fe80::1%lo0          localhost\" > /etc/hosts" with administrator privileges

    else

      quit

    end if

     

     

    Worked for me!

    Interesting Neilheesakkers these steps are similar to what was described in Sign in or activation errors | CS6, CS5.5 Subscriptions, CS6 Perpetual - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/activation-network-i ssues.html.  For those of you who have tried the steps listed by Gautham:

     

    1. Launch the application which says you are in trial mode.

    2. On the Creative Cloud application trial screen, click on "License this Software".

    3. Sign in with your Adobe ID associated with your Creative Cloud membership.

     

    Please also try the steps listed in Sign in or activation errors | CS6, CS5.5 Subscriptions, CS6 Perpetual - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/activation-network-i ssues.html.

    Nothing helps. It just does not feel good if all apps say you're in trialmode and you just paid € 72,- for a month-to-month subscription.

    I've done everything. Even Adobe Service can't help. I have the same problem on both os - win 7 x64 and Mac OsX Lion.
    Adobe, c'mon do something!

    My mate from Adobe says that problem is because of that our accounts haven't got assigned serial numbers on Adobe servers. It could take up to 72h.Is that true?

    KamilRusiecki I have not been notified of anything like that occuring.  It is more of a backlog of orders which need to be fullfilled.  I will update this thread though if I hear of anything which will prevent the orders from going through.

    Hey here the same problem,

    I subscribed to the Cloud.

    Download the programms and then he tells me to login with my AdobeID.

    And then I have to enter a serial.

     

    Also I already have the adobe creative suite CS5. All of my products are registrated and when I get the Invoice I see that I have to pay the full price.

    I found the problem!!!

     

    It is an UX issue. When you download from the manager, the "DMG" mounts on your desktop and we are clicking on it (like usual) and clicking on the installer. That is the issue. Don't do that. Pay attention to the application manager, and you will noticed the "downloading..." changing to "installing...". Just wait and withing 5 to 10 seconds you will see the progress bar filling in blue.

     

    Definatelly a flawd user experience taking in consideration how we were used to do it before, but it works. The application Manager will download and install it all for you. It is at least true to the first call to action "install" in first place.

    Interesting Iamxande were you previously launching the application prior to the installation being complete?  Did you have the trials installed previously?
