Hey there,
Hope that you are good:)
I was hoping that you could be of some help.
I downloaded ADOBE PHOTOSHOP 2023 and I'm attempting to install it.
For some reason I cannot get it to work.
I'm not to clued up on the installation terminology and processes so I could have possibly done something wrong.
Is there a simpler was in which you could explain it to me so that I can get it to work.
Thank you so much!!
Your assistance will be so greatly appreciated!!!

Welcome UTS-ZN! ;) :D
 
I disable the internet connection, and then disable the AV.

First I use the Adobe uninstaller tool to remove an earlier version.

I selected setup.exe and it installed with no problems.

I then selected update, which also had no problems.

Then the patch with no problems

Then checked the task manager to disable all Adobe functions.

Then I typed in "Services" using Windows search and it opens up, and down the bottom you will see "Extended" or "Standard" Adobe Acrobat update service was running, you click on "Properties" "Startup type" there is 4 options, I clicked "Disabled"

open acrobat, go to preferences > updater > disable updates


I have Windows 10 64 installed, for you information.

Hey, I have to apologize as I read it wrong, I thought it was the 2024 version. Here is this one that I have, and it works easy. Just copy the link below and paste it in your browser it will load into your torrent. I use Qbittorrent.

Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2024

See your message as I am unsure if I can paste torrent links here.

This is how easy it is to install:

Instructions :-

1. Install Setup.exe

2. Apply Update.msp

3. After Install Don't Start Program

4. Disable Antivirus security and Windows Defender (Pause protection)

5. Copy patch to program folder (c:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat DC\) and run as Administrator (see #1)1.jpg

6. Apply the patch. (see #2)2.jpg

Click on Search, it will load up and than click Patch.

7. Boom! Now you can use the program without any interruptions.

8. That's it, Enjoy now ;)

Thanks to CracksHash!!!

In many cases we must exclude the app from the internet so it does not break the PATCH, hack, or key or Flag it as as a bad file.

Windows 11

  1. Select Start , then open Settings . Under Privacy & security , select Virus & threat protection.
  2. Under Virus & threat protection settings, select Manage settings, and then under Exclusions, select Add or remove exclusions.

    Where to add an exclusion in the Windows Security app.
  3. Select Add an exclusion, and then select from files, folders, file types, or process. A folder exclusion will apply to all subfolders within the folder as well.

I did everything as the previous posts mentioned with Lightroom and installed them with the wifi and antivirus being turned off. I even excluded it from updates as you suggestes after I installed it. Then I opend the app and everything was fine and worked perfectly. But when I turned back on the antivirus and the WIFI unfortunately it recognised that it was an unlicensed app and it showed my again the same message, even though I had excluded it from scanning etc.

Do you all use Lightroom and Photoshop without Internet on your pc ? Because it seems I cant make it to work. Maybe I am doing something wrong.

EDIT: I tried turning off my wifi after the post I just made abut the lightroom app disabling, and then I opened Lightroom again and it worked just fine. I even exported an image and it was working perfectly. So I guess, does this mean that I can only use it without a wifi connection , or is there any other way to use it with the wifi on ?

Any help or advise will be much appreciated.

Hello again, unfortunately Lightroom version 12.4, the one I downloaded a month ago cannot open RAW images from sony (ARW Files after Sony's last firmware update). Is there any newer version of lightroom to download or are you planning in the future for a newer version (maybe a 2024 version). Thank you

Just use Adobe DNG Converter to convert your Sony RAW files to DNG format. DNG files are more compatible and lossless, and future proof.

It's also free. Just have to Google it and download. 1GB though.

I've been meaning to reply to your comment since May 6. After installing Photoshop, run this .bat file inside the directory. https://thewindowsforum.com/threads...-outgoing-files-in-a-folder-in-1-click.86505/

It works perfectly, thanks a lot. I was just wondering if there is going to be a newer lightroom version for download so I dont have to convert my ARW to DNG every time I want to import them. Does anyone know maybe ?
