We have a single user that is having issues using Adobe Pro DC. He may be able to work for a while but eventually gets a message that says
We can't verify your subscription status. We can't reach the Adobe servers
We were able to temporarily get the user working again by removing all adobe credentials within Windows Credential Manager, but within 30 minutes the issue returned.
We have tried using the Adobe CC Removal Tool to wipe the computer clean of Adobe and reinstall, but still no luck. The user's computer is a wired desktop and has no unusual network settings that would set it apart from anything else on our network. This is the only computer in the company behaving like this. This issue started approximately 1 week ago.
I assume by Adobe Pro you mean Acrobat Pro DC and not the free Acrobat Reader.
Is this an individual plan or a Teams/Enterprise plan?
Yes, this is a Pro DC license assigned to a user from our Enterprise plan.
Moved from Creative Cloud to Enterprise & Teams.
This error generally occurs when the application is not able to connect to the Adobe server and there can be multiple reasons. Please check the host file for Adobe entries, reset the setting of internet explorer, check with the admin's account on the same machine and check if getting the same issue.

We were able to solve the user's issue by removing the key HKEY_Current_User\Software\Adobe\. Adobe treated the next launch as a first time sign in and allowed him to sign in.
I have exactly the same issue and cant fix it. the company bought the license for us, only my laptop has this issue. I cant believe I have to get into the register to fix this. Adobe should provide a user-friendly solution! Really bad experience.
I don't even know how to get into the register? Don't know how to fix this. So frustrating to have bought the whole suite and be unable to use one of the crucial programmes! Where do I need to go to be able to remove this key?
Thanks in advance for your help...
Oh, and I am on a mac..
I don't even know how to get into the register?
If you're on a Teams/Enterprise plan, ask your IT dept to assist you.
Only a user with administrative permissions can change the registry.
Remove the whole branch from the registry? This sounds like a slightly insane answer that would break other things. I will keep it in mind as a last resort. The last time I had this issue, tech support made me uninstall/update/etc to fix the problem.
I've tried everything from deleting the registry keys to uninstalling/reinstalling, and Creative Cloud will allow me to sign in, but then signs me out as soon as I open Photoshop or Illustrator. Upon signing into those individually, I get the error that Adobe can't verify my subscription. This has been eating into my productivity and it's beyond frustrating that they require internet to verify subscription. I miss the old CS days. 😠
Same! It's wasting too much of my time.
I would highly recommend contacting the support team if none of the above suggestions fixed your issue. There could be multiple scenarios why the CC apps are not able to verify your subscription like the AV blocking the connectivity, permission issues on the Adobe folders, or the security/third party tool blocking Adobe to save the details locally on the machines.
The support team would be able to find the issues from the Adobe logs.
I did, through live chat. We kept going around in circles and I'm still having the same issue. The error comes and goes, but it's so frustrating. A massive waste of time- a waste of money too, quite frankly. I've checked forums and help guides and still nothing.
so you have neither a teams nor enterprise subscription and have posted in the wrong forum. exactly what problem do you have?
100% agree! The suscription model and the server error issue has cost me end product quality because of time loss. It seems to happen every day now on my company managed laptop. For crying out load Adobe - dump the server handshake!!
I agree this is garbage. It was working 30 minutes ago now I can't open Photoshop.

This was already enabled. A reboot fixed it in my case, which is pretty stupid. None of the other fixes could address the issue without a reboot. So I downgraded my subscription, no sense paying you guys extra for these kinds of problems.
In my case there was a problem with router setting.
I am using a custom firewall setting so not all coonections via specified ports are allowed. Thats why adobe subscription verification failed. Two solutions. First is to change simple firewall setting to allow for a while all connections (or disable the firewall at all) or in advanced firewall settings add connection port to the list with allowed ports. I have no idea which port number is used by Adobe for verifaction, so i change only the siumple firewall protection setting from "custom" to "low". Verification passed. After that i once again change my setting to "custom" but there was no problem with ceryfication anymore.
