Hello,

 

I purchased the Education plan for Acrobat Pro DC and installed on my Laptop.  It says that I still have the Trial version and will not let me activate.  I tried the troubleshooting tips and checking the Root Certificates and hosts protocol.  Tried signing in and out of CC and DC.  Still the same.  It states that my Education status is verified.  I still get the same message of "Unable to verify purchase".
