Purchase from a trial
Enter the serial number you received when purchasing the software in the serialization screen
when launching the application. You can enter a serial number for the application itself or a serial
number for eLearning Suite that contains the application. If the product you purchased is one of
the eLearning Suite, you can enter it in any of the applications contained in the eLearning Suite.
Other applications installed as part of the eLearning Suite will recognize the new serial number
the next time the applications are launched.
Only applications running as a trial will recognize the new serial number. If any of the
applications have already been serialized with a different serial number, it will continue to use that
serial number until you remove the older serial number using the Help > Deactivate > Erase my
serial number. Then on the next launch of the application, it will recognize the new serial number.
Volume licensing customers cannot purchase from a trial directly, however a volume licensing
serial number can be entered in the trial product. Please contact your reseller or authorized
Adobe licensing center to place an order for a volume license. To find a reseller in your area, go
