Before I first purchased CC I asked on a forum the question, "will it still run if my internet is down", and I was informed yes.
I have moved to a small volcanic (desert) island where the internet isn't always good. So far I have been luck in that it has been off when I have not needed to be at my computer. This morning was the first time, but I thought it would allow me to catch up with photo processing and art work. Until I got the message that Adobe can't check my subscription!!! So for most of the morning I might as well have gone back to bed!
Now we are hoping to move further inland, where connection problems are more than likely to increase. I wasn't bothered until this morning, as I thought I would still be able to use Photoshop and Lightroom. :'(
So, have finally got internet back on I opened up Photoshop and Lightroom ok. When it went down again they did stay open so I see that I must just have a connection in order to open them.
So I have to ask, is there ANY way that I can open Lightroom and Photoshop when my internet connection goes down?

Two things can cause this: a) Your computer's clock CMOS battery/capacitor is bad and your lapto...
