I'm getting the following notice in Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro:

:Error "Licensing for this product has stopped working ..."

How do I remove this?

Haha yeah, I have a "licensing error" with a lot of Adobe software. – Jan 13 '11 at 10:29

Register it - (Never seen a problem on people who have a genuine licence key, but anyway...)

Assuming you have a legal copy

Close all Adobe programs, then Keep the directory, but delete all files in -

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD

Next, restart any Adobe program in the same suite or just Adobe Acrobat if you purchased it on it's own (If part a suite, you have to activate other programs first).

Now register, it should activate fine. If you have a problem activating now, Contact Adobe directly. You pay so much for the products, they offer support!

The culprit is often "FLEXnet" which verifies the authenticity of your Adobe Program. Removing it results in the licensing error.
