Does anybody know how Acrobat's e-licence works?

The serial # gets stored on the adobe licensing server upon the order/customer id activation? Yes - I really do not know a whole lot.

Thanks folks.

the upshot is that you can have a single pool of licenses that users can access to register adobe products. If they don't need the product any more you can have them return it to the pool and during the period they have it the computers that have that e-license don't need any further authentication against adobe servers.

but there is some logistical setup to getting it all up and running so it's probably a littlle less useful for smaller shops.

Just went through this.  The CD they sent me didn't work well but I figured out that if you run the setup.exe directly from the Adobe Acrobat 8 Standard directory on the CD and put the serial number they send to you when asked it works ok.  You need to download a small license file (automatically from within acrobat) within 30 days to register the license as used.  I used the serial number only option from adobe.  When you check the report on adobe's license website it will tell you how many of your pool has been used.  When you decomission a system you need to deactivate the current system to free up the license for use on another computer.  If you fail to do that or the hard drive crashes you can contact their customer support group to have a new license added to your pool.

ps 10 copies is about the break even point for purchasing the boxed option or the corporate license pool version with single media CD.  Once over this point it is cheeper for the corporate license pool version.
