I've just replaced to HD on a friend's Mac Mini with an SSD and migrated all the software and data to it. Photoshop CS4 now won't open. I get the message "Licensing for this product has stopped working." "Error: 150:30" It suggested contacting Adobe tech support for help, but this was useless - they said they didn't support Creative Suite software. I don't need software support, I just need to have the license that was working this morning accepted.

Any ideas how to proceed? Thanks.

Tell everyone you know who owns a Mac, including Apple employees... Mac Migration and Time Machine DO NOT WORK properly with Adobe program activations due to hidden registration files that are not included when Migration or Time Machine make their copies

"License not working" doesn't mean the license was rejected. It means there is a software problem with the licensing component. Which isn't supported.
