Adobe Shared Device Licensing Program

Adobe has changed the way they license their software. Our products are changing to Shared Device Licensing program and there is going to be an additional step that should only need to be performed once on each computer you use in offices and/or classrooms.

This applies for any application in the Creative Cloud Suite and Adobe Acrobat DC.

Acrobat DC is used as an example here.

  1. Launch Acrobat on your computer.

  2. When the application launches, you will be prompted with one of two windows: a prompt to Sign in or Select an account window. Select the Company or School Account option.

  7. Once you have done this on a PC/MAC, the other Adobe applications should open without needing a credential. As long as you are logged in with “YOUR” LWTech credentials.
