Adobe - Installing Adobe Products

This article will provide information to help you install Adobe products under the new federated license.

Installing Adobe Products

Adobe applications are no longer individually listed in Software Center, but instead users will need to install the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop application. From within this application they will be required to login with their email address and email password (NetID). After logging in they will be able to install items without administrative privileges as pictured below.


PLEASE NOTE: This application will UNINSTALL most existing Adobe products on the computer and require a restart to actually use properly.


This change does not impact Macs at this time (it will in the near future).  Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop is only available to Windows 10 x64 PCs. No Windows 7 x86 or x64 or Windows 10 x86 availability is planned.

Adobe Federated Licensing Portal

Campus staff (currently only full-time) have been added to the Adobe Federated licensing portal. Although the email notification is disabled sometimes Adobe sends the email anyways. The email can be disregarded as the apps will be delivered via the respective software center. An example of this message is below.
