    Hi, I have a PSE 10 cd which I used to install on my old computer. I recently bought a new computer and want to install it on the new one. I don’t have the product key code, but in my account I see adobe has my serial number, Can I install PSE 10, not the free trial? If so please advise me on how to do this.

    Thanks, Debi

    Hace poco quise probar e instale el creative-cloud, una dolor de cabeza, Lo que es controversial y tramposo es que no puedas abrir un archivo de creative-cloud en ilustrator cs6, una trampa de marketing que te lo hace bajar gratis, probarlo y si no lo compras, te quedan todos los archivos inutilizables. ADOBE ESTO NO ES ETICO

    i have adobe cc 2014… and i downloaded the manual update for premiere 8.0.1 and 8.2… and for some reason when i run the update, it’s telling me I’m unable to update… but when i do the same on my other machine, it updates … whats going on, i need some help

    • Hello, what type of system do you have, and what is the exact error or message that you receive? Also check that the version numbers of the software you’re updating is the same on both computers (check the Help menu > About or System Info).

      Please ensure that you’re running the downloaded Adobe­Patch­Installer executable with full Administrator privileges on your machine, and that you are properly licensed for your software in both places (sign in with your account). Finally, make sure that the application you are trying to update isn’t running when you do that, or else the process can’t proceed.

  5. Just writing to say thank you. I’ve been having issues with a CC update on my MacBook Pro and your article about Direct Links (along with a list of those links) saved me hours of frustration. It is weird that a manager app that is meant to help would actually be the problem. Is this an issue between the OS and Adobe or is it only an Adobe issue? Whatever the answer… thanks for your help.


    • We’re not sure Kevin, but they definitely do come in handy… Many folks also use them for keeping an offline backup of the standalone CC installers, or for installation on machines with a slow Internet connection.

      Glad to help, and thank you for your kind note!

    I am trying to go back to Premiere Pro CC 2014 from an auto update to CC 2015. How can I do this?

    I now have cs3 photoshop, and would like a newer version (as new as I can get, and be supported on my computer). I do not wish to be connected to the cloud, How do I accomplish this, Rena

  8. i have a question regarding the difference between CC for teams and CC for Individuals. Being that i work for a small to midsize business that uses about 4 photoshop licenses and a handful of other adobe product licenses, what are the advantages of moving to a CC for team versus sticking with the CC for Individual everytime we hire someone new?
