XD only supports Named Licensing when using CC Packager. Please refer to this section of the FAQ:
"Can customers use a serial number to deploy Adobe XD for offline use?
Adobe XD does not support offline deployment with a CCE serial number. Customers must use named licensing deployment to access Adobe XD. We currently support all three identity types (Adobe ID, Enterprise ID, and Federated ID)."
Hope this helps,
Thank you for the reply. I work for LaGuardia Community College, which is part of City University of New York. We need to deploy Adobe XD CC to one of our Mac computer lab. Because I cannot create XD package with serial number, I created a name licensed package. After installed the name licensed package, I ran the serialize file but it still ask for sign in. Since it is for lab use and students do not have license to sign in, we need to use the serial number option. Please advise.

We are using Adobe ID for our faculty and staff users. We are an educational institution, so users have more freedom in managing their own software need. We have no plan, at least in near future, to move to Enterprise ID or Federated ID. Anyway, our named license does not include students and this is why we use the serial number license for all the labs.
I guess at this point I just need a confirmation stating serial number option will not work in XD, if that is the case.

To be precise, below is the statement from a member of the concerend team.
"XD, Dimension, and the new Lightroom are all named-user only applications and are not yet available for installation in multi-user lab and classroom environments (unless every user has their own license). We are currently not offering a “device” license or “serial” option for these apps but Adobe is actively working on a solution."
I hope this answers your query.
I must be posting in the wrong forum can you answer this question?
Adobe XD has been out officially since Nov. 1st so...
Can you install Adobe XD in a Macintosh computer lab - multiple users at the university level?
We have the most recent version of CC and have no trouble with the rest of the suite.
When can i expect the serial license option for Adobe XD?
Will it breach our license if I install XD as a standalone alongside our CC 2018 serial license installation? Students could then create and use their own personal Adobe ID for using XD.
I checked with our internal team, and while this doesn't breach the license, the setups are incompatible and would actually cause problems for your setup. XD unfortunately is only supported in fully named-user situations. I'd recommend you chat with your Adobe rep about your issue to make sure they have you on their radar. (And thank you so much for your interest in bringing XD into your classroom!)
