How to install Acrobat DC on the second machine?


Installing Acrobat DC on multiple machines is possible. Your individual Acrobat DC license lets you install Acrobat on more than one computer. However, you can activate (sign in) the Acrobat application on up to two computers and can use it on only one computer at a time.



You can install Acrobat DC on multiple computers, regardless of the operating system.

You may download the Acrobat installer on your machine directly from this page: https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/acrobat-downloads.html


If you cannot find the downloaded file, do the following:

  • On Windows: Open Windows Explorer and then select the Downloads folder in the left navigation pane. Double-click the downloaded EXE file.
  • On Mac: Open the Finder and then select the Downloads folder in the left navigation pane. Double-click the downloaded DMG file.



You can activate Acrobat on up to two machines at a time. To activate the application on the selected machines, you may use the steps suggested in the following help document: https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/activate-deactivate-products.html


If you wish to use the application on a third machine, you will need to first deactivate the application from one of the machines where it is already activated. If you will try to use it without deactivating the application.
