Hi Todd,

Mac build doesn't work on Windows OS. Both operating systems have their unique installer technology. hence you would require a windows machine wherein you can download creative cloud packager for WIN and create windows package.

Thanks,

Ashish

bobert,

You'll need a real (not virtual) Windows machine with no Creative Cloud software installed. If it has a second, internal drive as a destination for the packages, imaging goes a lot faster. I also have a second, easily re-imaged workstation on hand to test the builds.

Hope this helps,

Ric

Hi, 

I don´t know how to do that. I am a humble user. I have Acrobat Pro in my Macbook, and I would like to have it on my new PC, do I have to buy Acrobat pro for PC now? Couldn´t I download the version for PC?

This answer probably does not concern you, except if you have a Teams or Enterprise subscription. In that case, you need to contact your local administrator.

 

If you can access your machine via admin privileges, you can also install that on your own, however.

 

If you have an individual Acrobat Pro DC subscription, you can install the software on as many computers (macOS or Windows does not matter) as you want, and you can activate simultaneously on two computers.

You can do that by accessing your creative cloud control centre via this link: https://creativecloud.adobe.com/apps/acrobat-pdf (direct link to the Acrobat screen).

 

If you have a perpetual licence, I think that those licences are locked in the OS.

As macOS builds don't work on a Windows machine, it is, however, possible to create packages for any OS supported via the adminconsole. I suppose that's called evolution, as the original correct answer was from 2015.
