OK, I have been struggling with this for days and figured I would post my solution even though it's not ideal. First of all, I have tried all possible permutations of fixes regarding credential manager - removing all, stopping and restarting the service, etc. I have also been through a couple of complete uninstalls including using the creative cloud cleanup tool. Here is what I did to fix my problem with one particular individual:
- If you are quick, you can position your cursor over the "edit" menu while hitting enter to "try again" on the message. It might take a few tries, but I was able to get the menu open before the message box popped up again
- Go to Edit -> Preferences-> Security (Enhanced). I turned off two options - "Enable protected mode at startup" and "enable enhanced security".
I don't like leaving these security options off, but this did fix the problem for my user and was hoping this information could benefit the community with figuring out why these options are causing an issue - if this is in fact a repeatable fix for others.
The same situation (Can't verify subscription message) is happening to me, but with my Acrobat Pro DC desktop program - the message just randomly started yesterday when I opened the program trying to view a PDF. I tried clearing out the credentials & it didn't help. And I can get into all of my other Creative Suite apps with no problem! I had my IT admin login to my computer remotely at the same time I was in, and he was able to open the app fine from his user account and login as me. So we at least narrowed the issue down to something related to my PC user profile specifically - as there must be some hidden file or something that got corrupted or confused. Next steps are trying to figure out what file might be & how to fix it.
But in the meantime, I decided to try Tony5CA3's trick above, got into my Preferences settings before the message appeared and I unchecked the "Enable protected mode at startup" BUT, I left the "Enable Enhanced Security" part checked on, just to start. As soon as I hit OK to save, the error message box appeared again, but I closed the program and when I went back in, I got a Sign In option again. Eureka! So thanks for the tip Tony! And you might want to try turning Enhanced Security back on to see what happens...
This is the only solution that worked for me, I tried all the others. Thanks so much for posting it!
Thank you! This solved my problem with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
Thank you. It worked perfectly for me.
We are glad to hear that the mentioned solution helped you. Please feel free to reach out to us in the future for any query related to Adobe XD.
I am unable to use XD CC because of the following error. I followed all troubleshooting tips to no avail. This is only happening with the XD CC app. All other CC apps are working normally.
Same thing happening to me. I've just uninstalled every Adobe product along with Creative Cloud App, used CC cleaner tool and installed everything anew. The problem persists only for Adobe XD, every other product works fine.
Georgek51807646 and Stan Sokolowski, I am sorry that you are facing subscription errors while opening Adobe XD. To confirm are you able to open other Creative Cloud applications on this computer successfully? If so, can you please update this public forum discussion with the list of applications, and versions, that open without error. Also can you please include what operating system you are utilizing Adobe XD on.
Thanks for the fast reply Jeff. I've got the auto-update turned on for all the apps I am using (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, After Effects and Audition) and they are working perfectly fine. Only Adobe XD gets the error. I tried turning the auto-update off, installing older version but to no effect.
I'm using Win 10 Pro.
Ok, thanks for the additional details, Stan Sokolowski. What version of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, and Audition do you have installed? The version is important because it affects how the applications are licensed.
After Effects: 16.0.1
Thanks, Stan! The same licensing that is used the installed versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects should be utilized with Adobe XD.
For your next steps, I would recommend implementing the five solutions listed in Available updates not listed for Adobe Creative Cloud applications . If you continue to face errors while opening Adobe XD, then also implement the suggestions listed under Common Licensing Errors at Troubleshoot licensing issues | CC 2019 .
Please update this discussion if you have any questions, Stan.
Thanks for the info Jeff! I will try to go through the solutions you mentioned in my free time and get back with the info whether it helped.
Thanks, Stan. I will look forward to your update!
Having tried all the aforementioned solutions and failing I eventually, after hundreds of trials and errors, fixed the error by removing web credentials for Adobe XD in Windows Credentials Manager. I hope it helps everyone! Cheers!
This worked. Nicely done man! My credentials were not stored as Web Credentials, but under Windows Credentials. Removing all Adobe App Info entries there allowed XD to then recognize my subscription.
If you cannot access Manage Windows Credentials go to services.msc and start Credential Manager.
I have not adobe XD‘s web credentials...How to do it?
Look under Windows Credentials. See above.
