I am trying to create a Virtual Photoshop Elements package with AppV. When running the AppV sequencer, I am unable to reboot the computer. It seems that Photoshop Elements 8 Editor requires a reboot to run. Without reboot I am getting the following error:
Licensing for the product has stopped working.
This product has encountered a problem which requires you restart you computer before it can be launched.
Blah blah blah
Error : 147:21
Is there any way at all I can get around this without a reboot?
That helped a lot, thanks! I now know that the issue is with the FLEXnet License service needing a reboot and not running while sequencing. I now have a workaround (which violates all best practice of sequencing, but it seems to work) to allow me to sequence it, but now have a new question.
I found that if I install, then uninstall Photoshop BEFORE sequencing, I can perform the required reboot to allow the FLEXnet License Service to run. Once it is running, I can the successfully sequence the virtual application without error.....a very dirty way of doing it, but it seems to be the only way at this point.
Now for the next question, is there a way to install the FLEXnet License without installing the entire Photoshop application? The reason I need this is because the error comes back when I deploy the virtual copy of Photoshop to a computer with no FLEXnet License service running. So, if there was a way to install this service on computers, either by pushing it out or even installing it into my images that would be great.

No. The service will install ONLY along with Adobe applications. Cannot be installed as standalone service.
