I have benne a customer since early 90'ties and purchased a lot during the years. I hav a stand-alone license of Lightroom 6 and a LS11 upgrade installer. Was just going to install LR on a laptop before a vacation tomorrow. And I can see Adobe is eager to be able to reach my phone as the 2-step verifications pop-up (as it does on this site) turns up. But I'm really not intested, especially as Adobe, if activated, forces me to accept other kind of commersial messages in text. I do NOT like that at all BUT...

 

THE INSULT is that the Activate link ONLY works and the Not now doesn't. Find it most insulting as I have no choice if I like to install. I do NOT accept it but have to do it as I have use of LR on my trip. So how can I inactivate it again Adobe? Or am I a 'prisoner' now without any way to back?

You make it sound as if activation is an option. It isn’t. This is the point at which Adobe check your license is valid by connecting to their servers, and recording the license as yours. This is the point where they make sure the license is real, is not blocked, and that nobody else is using it. Seems fair. The only alternative is to run a short trial; Adobe still need to connect up, to make sure you only get to use the trial once.
