Transfer Adobe Software Between Two Computers

OK, so your old computer is running out of gas, you’re upgrading or changing systems, adding a new machine, or switching from a PC to a Mac, or vice versa — and you want to move over your copy of CC/Creative Cloud or CS6 (or CS5 or CS4 or CS3) Adobe software — what do you do, and how do you do it? Just follow our complete guide below, which also works for other Adobe desktop products such as Acrobat, Elements, Lightroom, Captivate, and more.

As we’ve covered previously here, you are generally allowed to install and activate most Adobe software on up to two computers, with the restriction that the software can not used on both systems at the same time. So right off the bat, you might be good to go with installing the software on a second computer, although you may wish to double-check the licensing agreement for your product to be sure.

How Many Computers Can You Install or Run Adobe Software On?

This is one of the most common questions we get, and the answer may pleasantly surprise you…  The place to look to find the answer is the Software License Agreement, also called the terms of use or EULA. This agreement governs the use of your Adobe product, and is translated into 28 languages within each document. It also covers some basics about product activation.

See the Adobe End-User License Agreements (EULAs)

So, in general, how many systems can you install Adobe software on, including the Creative Cloud (CC) and CS6?  The answer for individuals (as opposed to businesses) in most cases is two.  The catch is that both computers must be used only by you and the two systems cannot be used at the same time. This policy was designed so that you could run Creative Cloud (or Creative Suite) at home on your desktop PC, as well as while traveling with your laptop or tablet PC. But the types of computers and their usage has blurred so much now that you can just pick any two you own and the product should install and properly activate on both…

For example, here is the key text from the Terms of Use for CC Software:

1.1 Use of Software: Subscription-Based License. Your subscription lets you activate the Software on up to two devices (or virtual machines) at a time, however, you may not use the Software on the two devices simultaneously.

“Creative Treat” to Be Part of New Accuracy-in-Naming Initiative

SAN JOSE, Calif.April 1, 2019—Citing continued confusion over the Creative Cloud name introduced seven years ago, Adobe Systems announced today that it is relaunching its flagship product line as “Creative Treat.”

Adobe Ends Creative Cloud & Suite, Announces New Creative Treat

Commenting on the move, Founder John Adobe explained that too many people were still thinking Creative Cloud meant that mainline desktop tools like Photoshop and Illustrator were run­ning as online applica­tions in a web browser – something he says will never actually happen.

“Creative Suite was the old model, and Creative Cloud is the new model,” Mr. Adobe said. “And yes, it has some important cloud-based services – but now with Creative Treat, we finally have a name that represents the sweet experience you should expect as a customer when using all these great tools,” he added.

Origins of the New Name

“With the thousands of innovations added since the release of CS6, plus complete access to full versions of all our top software for an affordable price, using these delicious new creative prod­ucts is really a treat, most of all,” he explained.
