    Dynamic Link issue

    MikeG624

      I have Adobe CS5.5 Master Suite installed.  Has worked without a problem for many months now.  However, in the last few weeks, dynamic link fails to work.  I get a message "must have Adobe Production Premium installed" for dynamic link to work.  Anyone having a similar problem and is there a fix available?

            That can be caused by the same problem that causes this issue:

              Hi Mike,

               

              I'm a Productioon Premium user.

               

              Dynamic Link has given me grief over a period of time for what I can see are no reasons, except and by accident I found the solution to my problem concerning this infuriating issue. No doubt there are other conditions that trigger this licensing safeguard.

               

              Always (which is a good point in troubleshooting in this digital minefield), Prem Pro threw up this message if I created a new After Effects project then proceeded to use "Replace with After Effects Composition" for the first time.

               

              Simple (in my case): close and reopen the new After Effects project. Solution - don't know why it keeps doing this (on occasions). It's what I call flakey, as with the same conditions set it could do something different. The reason I have come to the conclusion that Dynamic Link is not as stable as Adobe makes out. They could fix it overnight by doing away with the licensing safeguard - but they won't as they want to keep using Dynamic Link as a USP and product differentiator.
