If you just made the purchase it does take time to get thru the system. Being a weekend I do not know if it requires attention from Adobe that is only available during normal business hours.
One thing that you might look thru...
FAQ: What do I do if I have a membership but my app is acting as if I have a trial?
If you have access to another machine then you can create a new account and get the trial there to deal with your deadline. If you were relying on trial software to get you this far to meeting a deadline, you should have considered making the purchase much sooner than two days before it comes to pass.
Hi Ned, thanks for the input. Having to wait for Adobe to process didn't even cross my mind! As a quick fix, I did use the method you mentioned, using a new account on a new computer.
I can see your point in saying that I shouldn't have waited until the last moment but honestly, when I took the job, I wasn't counting the days to my trial. Since it's 2016, I'm used to being able to use a product in full capacity right after making the payment for the product.
And even if that's the case and a renewal takes a couple of days, I'd expect the app to start giving me warnings a couple days before it expires, don't you think so?
