Hi There,

My organisation is in the process of updating our Elements offering from version 11 to version 12.  The software itself (via SCCM 2012 R2) installs fine however we are stopped when launching either Photoshop or Premiere Elements by a required Adobe ID sign in.

The sign in is required otherwise the software is useless after 7 days.  We get around this issue in CS6 thanks to AAMEE but it doesn't look good for Elements.

Any advice on what can be done?  The software itself could make its way on to over 6000 computers so a manual sign-in each time isn't ideal for every install, and the fact that we are a school division removes the possibility of having the users (students) getting individual adobe id's.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

For those experiencing the annoying Adobe ID popup when launching programs you can try updating your hosts file and adding the lines below. Locate your "hosts" file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc and add the lines below to it then save and reboot:
