Abode Acrobat 8 Repair Reactivation Code

Posted by bates70 on November 28, 2010

My computer have a problems, Adobe Acrobat 8 which I have installed request reactivation code, Now, I can’t reactivate because it requires a repair activation code
The activation scheme for Acrobat 8 is quite different than other Adobe products, and it has created some serious problems. Many legitimate Acrobat 8 users are having various difficulties with the product, and Adobe support is pursuing a fix. Adobe suspects that the activation files are the problem, but they are not revealing what files can be removed to enable a fresh re-install. Unfortunately, because there is little detailed information available about the new licensing/activation for Acro8, your fix may require some aggressive steps. I could find no procedure for manual removal of Acrobat 8 on the Adobe website.
Previous Adobe licensing information was stored in various .dat files located in the Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe Systems\Product Licenses folder. Acro8 apparently does not store its information there, or it would be a quick fix to eliminate the activation file.
So, here is my suggestion :  —> Source on my other blog

  • Remove Adobe Acrobat 8 using Windows Add/Remove Programs. If its not there, remove by running setup from the installation cd or downloaded Acrobat 8 program.
  • Delete the original folders Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe and Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe Systems\
  • Delete registry keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe Systems\Licenses
  • And go to folder Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FLEXnet\, find the file name looks like, delete the data file, its will make acrobat will ask you to activate with the normal activation code.

Reboot and attempt to perform fresh install Acrobaat 8 then reinstall all other Adobe software on your computer.
Done. Its work for me

    Adobe Acrobat 8.1.0 Serial No is 1118-1026-1991-6785-6042-2846 and Activation code is 0131-2645-9352-7045-9985-9593-7958-4319 and and Activation Type is “Repair” and Authorisation code generated by Keygen is 3780 9780 9565 0618 9734 4319 . which is saying wrong authorisation code. Any body can give correct Authorisation code based on the Serial no and Acgivation code

    For reactivating under a “Normal” activation, I found that all I had to do was remove the two FLEXnet files for Adobe. Then, it prompted me for a normal activation (with a 30-day grace period, even after my 7-day grace had already expired). That’s… pretty effective!
