Mixing work and personal Adobe accounts on same computer

I have a work laptop which includes a license for Acrobat Pro. On the same computer I have my personal copy of Lightroom Classic installed.

 

When I switch between these applications, I get denied access unless I logout of one account in Creative Cloud Desktop and login to the other. Worse - because this isn't a web application, I can't use my password manager and have to cut and paste every time.

 

This is driving my crazy - is there a workaround for this? Microsoft, Google, etc. all handle multiple identies with ease.

 

Thanks.

Sorry, but no... logging out of A to then log in to B is the way Adobe designed using the programs

Plenty of other large software companies have figured out how to manage multiple identities on the same computer. Adobe obviously has both commercial and individual customers - logical that they should to. SMP.

For that matter, do they really need to verify my identity every single time I use software legally installed on my own machine?
