I created a new VM in VMware just the other day, with the latest Windows 10 Enterprise Trial.
Then I installed Adobe Creative Cloud, with a freshly registered account, and downloaded Photoshop inside of it. It immediately said "Trial expired", and when I try to run it, it just says that my trial has expired. Even though this is the first day that I have it installed in the VM, and the account was registered today.
This seems very strange to me. Is VMware secretly leaking some kind of data into the guest OS (the VM) from the host? Some sort of "unique identifier", which Adobe uses to "bust" me for wanting to try Photoshop for another few days to see what has changed since the last time I used it (like a year ago, with an old Adobe account)?
This all makes me feel very uneasy. I don't understand how it can be possible since it's a fresh VM, with a fresh Adobe account.
