    Did you receive any error messages during the install process?  You can review the install logs to determine if there were any errors.  You can find information on how to locate and interpret your log files at Troubleshoot installation with install logs | CS3, CS4 - tall-logs-cs3.html.


    Also was Premiere CS4 previously installed on this computer and stopped working or has it never worked?  Finally what operating system do you have installed on this computer?

    Thank you for the update  It sounds like you are facing a permission issue on your computer when trying to activate and license your software.  The procedures to interpret your log file are included in the document I referenced in message #1.


    If you would like myself or another Adobe employee to review your log file then please download and run the Adobe Support Advisor from  Once you run the Support Advisor it will give you an option to package for support.  If you can please then respond to this thread with the token number.

    We may need to move this topic over to the Premiere forum but reviewing your install logs I did find several references to error 1601.  Please try the procedures listed in Installer freezes | Checking system profile | CS4, Photoshop Elements 8 - stem-profile.html.

    Moving this discussion to the Premiere Pro CS4 & Earlier forum.  It doesn't appear that Forest is facing an installation issue.
