Hi @Gizem Gul,

 

It seems like you're encountering the "Your Illustrator build has expired" error when trying to use the Illustrator Beta. This issue can occur when the beta version you have installed reaches its expiration date. Unfortunately, there isn't a direct way to bypass this error within the beta version itself.

 

However, the good news is that we have recently released a new beta version, 28.0.0.7, to address such issues and provide users with updated features and bug fixes.

The official 28.2 release works fine, so I don't have any problems working, it is just that I wanted to point out that the latest update isn't working.

I don't want to keep banging the same drum, but it's unbelieveable to me that people use the beta for critical work like this.

Same thing happend to me. It was open in the background (Mac OS Sonoma 14.3) then suddenly this error message pops up.

This happens with Illustrator Beta (28.2).

Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't help.

As already said by others; never use a beta or prerelease version for serious work. They are there to test things, detect bugs and get feedback.

Always have the latest regular version installed for your daily work (yes, you can have the regular version (at this moment 28.2) installed as well as a beta version on the same system).
