Just purchased a new iMac with M1 chip and executed migration assistant to transfer everything from old Mac to new one. When I try to open a PDF, It displays the "Sign In Required" screen and when I click 'Sign in Now', the window expands to a completely blank rectangle except the title bar naming Acrobat Licensing Application. Any ideas on what to do??
Thank you for reaching out and sorry for the trouble.
As you have mentioned, you have recently purchased the new iMac and when trying to access the Acrobat you receive the blank Acrobat Licensing Application window. The issue occurs when the directory permissions are modified when you migrate orupgrade from older OS. Please try the troubleshooting steps suggested in the following help document: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/acrobat/kb/licensing-application-hangs-mac.html.
We have checked that you are using the Adobe Acrobat 17 version, you may also refer to the similar discussion on the following community thread: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/acrobat-licensing-application-hangs-after-login-on-mac-os-10-....
Hope the information helps.
Let us know if the issue persists.
Found the answer: used the Creative cloud cleaner and then I was able to enter my credentials in theAcrobat Licensing Application window
This worked for me. Thanks!
Worked for me thanks!!!!
I'm trying to use Acrobat Pro 2020 after migrating to a MacBook Pro, M1 Max, Monterey OS 12.0.1.
I've tried granting permission using the Terminal command, that didn't work. I've deleted OOBE file, that didn't work. The sudo command also didn't fix the problem. Still getting blank Licensing Application window.
I am having the same issue and cannot find any resolution. Tried the sudo command, tried fully uninstalling and reinstalling everything adobe, restarted my computer numerous times. This is REALLY impacting my work productivity. Need a solution ASAP Adobe!
FINALLY figured it out. I used the Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner tool to clean and delete everything. Then, next time I opened the Adobe Acrobat Application the Acrobat Licesnsing Application worked! It was no longer blank but allowed me to go through the sign in process. This actual working solution took only a few minutes.
Did you read this thread? The answer was posted in this thread back in August 2021.
Any further details about using Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner to solve this problem would be really appreciated - when I launch this tool, I don't see "Acrobat" as one of the options to clean up. What file did you select? Or did you just remove every Adobe product?
I just removed every product! I don't use the other Creative Cloud
applications, however, only Adobe Acrobat. So I wasn't worried about losing
data. Not sure if it would be advisable if there is a risk of losing any
I launched the cleaner tool and selected "Adobe ID Credentials", then the "cleanup selected" button. That done, I went back and opened Acrobat and it took me to a login page that worked! So I'd just start there before deleting everything.
The solution for me was to create a new Administrator account on my M1 MacBook Pro Max. I logged into the new administrator account and setup my Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 in the new account, logged out and deleted the new administraot account. From then on I can open Acrobat Pro in my original administrator account. I love Adobe final products but add my voice to complaints about thier poor behind the scenes work-around bugs and customer service.
This works. I have my computer with an account solely for installs, and I have configured it to share any install across all users on the computer. It worked!
