Can you have two accounts on the same computer?

I have one account for Photoshop, and because I am doing work in InDesign for another company I have an account from that company.

When I am downloading InDesign I am only getting a 7 days trial version.

Hi,
may not so elegant but I solved using a the runas command and start the other app.exe with different windows account (and then different adobe id login). so I don't have to logon/logoff continuosly.

Hi, I just opened a new txt file.

Insert te text:


echo "PUT A MESSAGE YOU WANT TO SEE"
runas /user:DOMAIN\user "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 2019\RoboHelp.exe"

 

and save this file with the extension *.cmd.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi forgot to tell you that once you save the file as *.cmd, you can double clic on it and execute.

A command windows will be prompted and you just need to put your password.

I'm not quite sure exactly what to put in the "user:DOMAIN\user" portion. forgive the ignorance. if my User Name is, for example, Jon Doe, and the microsoft account I use to sign in to windows is jondoe123@gmail.com, what goes where?

mmh, I don't know exactly, I don't have an account like yours to makes tests. You can try just using your e-mail "user:jondoe123@gmail.com"or "user:COMPUTERNAME\jondoe123@gmail.com" .
"DOMAIN\user" is for windows domain environment. You have to try. Is just a script to run an app. You can't make any damage.
Hope this help.

This all sounds very risky. Adobe support using two or more different Adobe IDs as follows:

1. Sign in to Creative Cloud as "USER 1".

2. Run the apps you need under "USER 1".

3. Sign out from Creative Cloud.

4. Sign in to Creative Cloud as "USER 2".

5. Run the apps you need under "USER 2".

 

So Adobe do not support running the apps at the same time, but it's safer.

From my point of view it's just a workaround that solve my problem and maybe can help other.
Where is the risk exactly?

The risk is not known, as it is not tested. I always prefer to use tested routes. There is always the possibility that the two CC apps under different Adobe IDs will come into conflict, especially on shared resources. I certainly wouldn't do this if there were files on the Adobe cloud -- I can see the possibility of ending up with none as synching gets confused.
