Every few months I need to reimage my computer, move to a new computer, wipe my computer or do something else that Adobe doesn’t expect me to do.
That being said, I’m running a legit CS3 suite and every time I do a wipe, I first deactivate my adobe products.
Then when I get ready to reinstall, I get this error:
Licensing for this product has stopped working
Searching Adobe and the Internet for answers is mostly unhelpful because everyone thinks that a simple uninstall / reinstall will fix the problem.
I finally found a link on the Adobe site that will resolve this issue:
Solution 4 is the one you want to do.
