Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Uninstall Adobe on the old computer, and it if ask you to deactivate say yes.

Install Adobe on the new computer, and activate. Log into your Licensing Account if need be.

I have moved Adobe Acrobat from my X230 to my X1 Laptop this way successfully.

I logged in to adobe.com and I see the license code under plans.  Where is the link for the download of the software?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Go to Adobe.com , Downloads, and you can download from there. Then install and activate.

Also, you got an Email from Adobe Licensing a while back. The download link is there.

If you use the first method, make sure you get the correct product for you licensing.

Do I download the free trial and then enter activation number?
mkramer777Author Commented:
This was not a subscription for adobe pro.  I purchased a copy.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Go to Licensing and recover your license. I purchased my copy as well not subscription.

You also have a receipt in your email
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Here is the Adobe Account screen. If you have lost all, go there and ask support for your license and download link.

I'm on this page and all it does when I click on "adobe desktop applications download desktop apps" is bring me to a place to buy or download a trial.  Can I download the trial and then activate?
mkramer777Author Commented:
Chat doesnt work when asking about downloading and install.  When I try the download for trial I have to put in a credit card number.  This can't be how it's done.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
If you have a license key for it, then yes the trial download will activate . My unactivsted download is just a trial
mkramer777Author Commented:
Do I still have to sign up with a credit card to get the trial?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Saw your second post. You will have to contact Adobe Support by phone if chat does not work (or by email)
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
No credit card needed if you are licensed but you need Adobe Support to help with the license

Why isn't there a button that says download products you have purchased?  Am I missing something.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
You seem to have lost your licensing emails, so you really need to get in contact with Adobe and see if they can help you
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
I think they do not recognize you for some reason.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Adobe Support USA 1 (800) 833-6687

I suggest you call them because I think you have lost your licensing and will have to re-purchase unless you call them and can identify your self.
