Anyone know how to determine what kind of license I'm in possession of for Acrobat 8?

I've just been handed a license and told.. this is for Acrobat but don't now if it's a site license or single user.
I know that it's for Acrobat Standard.

After installation there is not prompt for the user to Activate, only to register (which can be ignored)..

I don't want to package it all up and deploy only to find out it's only intended for 1 user.

You could maybe phone Adobe and ask?

If that's not an option (and I've held for Adobe support before...) why not install using it into a VM?

Hi vbscab - I did a test install already today but no prompt for Activation..
I thought this strange since previously Activation was required for Acrobat 7 afaik.

Just had a look on the Adobe site and Acrobat 8 is not on the list of products requiring Activation!

If I did install onto a vm how could I tell what I have?.. the app seems to function fine.
Presumably if I install to another machine it will also work there too etc... so it could be a site license or it could still be a user license. Confused..

I've looked into contacting Adobe but looks like I need additional info - username, company, registration details etc. the only thing of which I know is the company name. Looks like my current company have a license procurement team that don't have a clue what licenses they are buying.. will have to do this the hard way and chase some paper trails. Was hoping to avoid this.

Doesn't 'Help/About' tell you anything? These things normally get put there somewhere...you know "Serial Number: blah-blah-blah", 5-user license" sort of nonsense...
