I have purchased Acrobat Pro 2020 full licence, and have a new serial number. I have installed it, but when I open it, it says ‘trial expired’ and I don’t have full functionality.

Did you purchase it from Adobe, or from a third-party? If the latter, which one? And where you able to register it under your account on Adobe's website?

This is a user-to-user forum, for the most part. You should contact Adobe directly for help with this issue:

Thanks try67

Yes, I bought it by clicking on the ‘trial expired’ label, which also said ‘buy now’. I logged in to buy it, and as far as I can tell, I registered it. Perhaps that didn't succeed.

I'll be switching off for the night in a few minutes, so hope things become clearer tomorrow when I restart.

thanks, Peter

Dear try67 and everyone

 

Can anyone guide me as to how to solve this?

 

I have bought Acrobat Pro 2020. It costs just shy of £600 (GBP). I was given a new serial number, and apparently downloaded it: ‘installation successful’. My understanding is that this is a non-subscription permanent licence, and that what I’ve bought is full Acrobat Pro but without the support and upgrades available on the subscription model. Is that correct?

 

I have now received an email from Adobe asking me to complete my purchase. But I did complete it; the bank gave me an authorisation code, but Adobe haven’t taken the money. The bank assures me that it’s there, pending, ready for them to take.

 

How do I persuade them to accept the authorisation code, take the money, complete the transaction and provide me with fully functional software?

 

with thanks

Peter

PS. You wrote: "what I’ve bought is full Acrobat Pro but without the support and upgrades available on the subscription model. Is that correct?"

Not quite. The "perpetual license" version does not have the same updates available to it as the subscription-based one. They are often lagging behind by quite a bit, if they are implemented at all for it. The rest is accurate, though.

Dear Try67

Many thanks, this was immensely helpful. I hadn't succeeded in finding those telephone numbers on the Adobe website. I managed to contact an assistant via the phone link you provided, and eventually she was able to solve the problem. I now have Acrobat up and running.

Thanks again

Peter
