Issue:On Win7 64 bit OS, while launching one of the products like Photoshop CS4 or Illustrator CS4 etc, the application loads for few seconds before License fails. There after the application never works
Below error message seen
“Licensing for this product has stopped working.
You cannot use this product at this time. You must repair the problem by uninstalling and then reinstalling this product or contacting your IT administrator or Adobe customer support for help.”
Solution:Sequence the application on Win7
Reason:The Creative Suite has 2 versions of service (32 & 64 bit). 32 bit service gets installed when sequenced on a 32 bit OS. And hence fails to kick in on a 64 bit OS.
Note:The application CANNOT be opened for upgrade albeit you need to upgrade the sequenced application. The service fails to kick in after performing an upgrade thereby showing up the above error once again.
As the sequenced application(Full Suite) runs into 4+GB in size, it is always a better idea to break them into independent products like Illustrator CS4, InDesign CS4 for sequencing
The same is applicable for Adobe Creative Suite 3 (CS3) products as well
Issue After Sequencing Eclipse 2.13, the below error might be seen upon launching the shortcut. It is imperative to remember that the error shows up even when you install JRE before sequencing the application.
Upon launching the application on Win7, we might see the below error as well
Solution The change required to get Eclipse working is as follows Install JRE 1.6 to T:\
If you sequence Eclipse to T:\ECLIPSE.231, you will have to install JRE 1.6 to T:\ECLIPSE.231\JRE as well as the application expects JRE to be installed in this location
When you dynamic suite virtual applications, Environment variables need special care as they are never shared among virtual applications. Meaning, a variable defined as "INCLUDE" in the dependency application doesn't mean the primary application has a knowledge about this variable.
After dynamic suiting, value of "INCLUDE" variable of the dependency application ought to included in the OSD's of the primary application. Failing to do this operation would result in inconsistent behavior when an operation based on this environment variable (INCLUDE) is triggered.
Most importantly, if your primary application also includes a definition for the same variable, you ought to append the value of the "INCLUDE" variable with the primary application's "INCLUDE". Effectively, there CANNOT be multiple environment variables with same name. Having such variables would result in loss of data. Meaning, The last value of the "INCLUDE" variable overrides the previous entries.
The OSD named "ASIA-Ex 22.214.171.124 - Incorrect.OSD" has Environment variables "INCLUDE" & "LIB" which repeats itself after dynamic suiting. This results in loss of data of the previously defined "INCLUDE" and "LIB" variables thereby breaking the functionality of the applications.
