CA as you well know. If you still don't get it, CA=Contact Adobe.
When you activate, Adobe makes a record of that in their database
When you RE-install and RE-activate... if you did not first DE-activate... Adobe will not activate since you are already active
How do you de-activate?
Choose it in the menu.
> How do you de-activate?
The problem, of course, is that your menus (I assume) will have only the "activate" option active, and "deactivate" is greyed out.
I have never done it, but I think you must deactivate BEFORE you uninstall. Thus, Harm's "CA" is now your only option. I think John's comments were data in support of why Harm's CA is what you must do.
I wonder whether you can reactivate on the same machine if there are no hardware/operating system changes. Assuming that is what you did, your experience suggests the answer is "no."
