I am standing up an airgapped, completely offline lab.  I have boxed copies of Adobe Acrobat Standard 2020 One-Time Purchase.  The install went fine, I entered the serial number on the CD.  However, when I start the app, it wants me to sign into an Adobe account before using the software.  Since this is not possible, how can I use the software?  Thanks all.

You can't. It used to be possible to activate via the phone, but Adobe removed that option with the latest release of Acrobat 2020, unfortunately.

Hi!  I'm in the exact same situation here at work.   Curious if you managed to get anywhere with this?

 

Thanks,

Jeff

In the system requirements Adobe say pretty definitely: 

  • This software will not operate without activation. Internet connection and registration are required for software activation, validation of subscriptions, and access to online services.* Phone activation is not available.
