    Adobe Trial Software expires after one day if launched in June 2008

      A large majority of Adobe Trial Software Packages, including After Effects, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Illustrator, contain a time-out bug which will affect people who launch the trial for the first time in June 2008. Users who launch a trial application for the first time in June 2008 will be given only one day, rather than 30 days, to trial the software.

      When you open the trial version of an Adobe program, you are warned that the trial will expire after one day. When you open the trial after that day, the trial has expired.

      If you decide to purchase the product in June, instead of having 30 days to activate your product, you only have one day to activate.

      Users who first launched their trial before June 2008 are not affected.

      Adobe have released a Trial Repair Tool, which will grant 65 days of trial use for users who have launched in June 2008. Download the Repair Tool here:
