Fixing the Adobe Creative Suite 4 “Licensing for this product has expired” in Windows

Sso you installed Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection or any of its other applications, and now you can’t even open up any of these programs. You’re probably receiving the now semi-infamous “Licensing for this product has expired” pop up error.

This error will more than likely affect the use of the following programs:
  • Adobe InDesign CS4
  • Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended
  • Adobe Illustrator CS4
  • Adobe Flash CS4 Professional
  • Adobe Dreamweaver CS4
  • Adobe Fireworks CS4
  • Adobe Contribute CS4
  • Adobe After Effects CS4
  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS4
  • Adobe Soundbooth CS4
  • Adobe OnLocation CS4
  • Adobe Encore CS4
Don’t worry, because some guys over at who knows where got the fix that will save you many hours of headaches. The problem lies within the “amtlib.dll” file in each of the CS4 application directories. However, downloading a simple fix and updating each of the files with a newer one can solve this problem.

Step 1:

Download the following file:
Step 2:
Run the “crack.bat” file and allow for the file to be copied over to all the directories. This should fix all your problems.

If the above two steps didn’t work, try the following:

Step 3:

Search for: “amtlib.dll” in the Adobe folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\.

Step 4:

Replace all the “amtlib.dll” files in each of the Adobe folders with the file in the downloaded fix.

Only do the following steps if the previous steps didn’t work for you.

Step 5:

Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc, open the “hosts” file there with Notepad.

Step 6:

Add the following lines at the end of the file: localhost
::1 localhost

Step 7:

Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD\cache
and delete the file “cache.DB”

Step 8:

Enter a new serial number for the applications and open up any Adobe Creative Suite program.
Now everything should be working fine

  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.Locate the following registry key:
  2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
  3. Using your account name and password, double-click the DefaultUserName entry, type your user name, and then click OK.
  4. Double-click the DefaultPassword entry, type your password under the value data box, and then click OK.

    If there is no DefaultPassword value, create the value. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.
    2. Type DefaultPassword as the value name, and then press ENTER.
    3. Double-click the newly created key, and then type your password in the Value Data box.
    If no DefaultPassword string is specified, Windows XP automatically changes the value of the AutoAdminLogon registry key from 1 (true) to 0 (false) to turn off the AutoAdminLogon feature.
  5. Double-click the AutoAdminLogon entry, type 1 in the Value Data box, and then clickOK.

    If there is no AutoAdminLogon entry, create the entry. To do this, follow these steps:

After your computer restarts and Windows XP starts, you can log on automatically.

If you want to bypass the automatic logon to log on as a different user, hold down the SHIFT key after you log off or after Windows XP restarts. Note that this procedure applies only to the first logon. To enforce this setting for future logoffs, the administrator must set the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Type: REG_SZ
Data: 1
You can also use turn on automatic logon without editing the registry in Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and in Microsoft Windows XP Professional on a computer that is not joined to a domain. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.

    Note When users try to display help information in the User Accounts window in Windows XP Home Edition, the help information is not displayed. Additionally, users receive the following error message:
    Cannot find the Drive:\Windows\System32\users.hlp Help file. Check to see that the file exists on your hard disk drive. If it does not exist, you must reinstall it.
  3. Clear the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" check box, and then click Apply.
  4. In the Automatically Log On window, type the password in the Password box, and then retype the password in the Confirm Password box.
  5. Click OK to close the Automatically Log On window, and then click OK to close theUser Accounts window.

How To Speed Up Your Windows XP By Disabling File Indexing

File indexing is a Windows service that like many others, is totally useless – unless you do a lot of searching on your computer. As most users don’t, it’s a good idea to disable it to speed up actions like opening and closing files and folders on your Windows XP.

To disable the Indexing Service:

Go to “My Computer” and right click on your hard drive. At the bottom of the window that opens, you should see a check box titled “Allow Indexing Service to index the disk for fast file searching.” Uncheck it.

Press OK and you’re done! Your computer should be a little faster after a restart.

The Simplest Way To Schedule Your Computer To Shutdown

Ever wanted to schedule your computer to shutdown at specific time? Windows has a secret trick that allows you to do just that :)

1) Go to Start -> Run. Type in 'shutdown -s -t 120' and press Enter.

2) Your computer will shut down in 120 seconds. Change 120 to any number (in seconds) you like :)

Important: If at any time you wish to cancel the operation, type in the command 'shutdown -a'.

PS: You could also use 'at 22:13 shutdown -s' to specify the time to shutdown. Just change 22:13 to any time that you want (must be in 24 hours format)

End Notes:

-s and -t used above are command switches, which is explained in the list below:
-s Shutdown the computer
-t Set a given time for shutdown, in seconds
-r Restart the computer
-l Log off the user
-a Cancels a system shutdown already in progress
-f Forces running applications to close without warning
-i Display a GUI. It must be the first switch

You may use any of these switches to your liking. Normally I'll also add -f to the command so that it will ensure that the computer will shutdown. (but make sure you don't have any unsaved work!)

Tips To Keep Your System Faster

Follow these tips and you will definitely have a much faster and more reliable PC!

1. Wallpapers: They slow your whole system down, so if you're willing to compromise, have a basic plain one instead!

2. Drivers: Update your hardware drivers as frequently as possible. New drivers tend to increase system speed especially in the case of graphics cards, their drivers are updated by the manufacturer very frequently!

3. Minimizing: If you want to use several programs at the same time then minimize those you are not using. This helps reduce the overload on RAM.

4. Boot Faster: The 'starting Windows 98/XP' message on startup can delay your booting for a couple of seconds. To get rid of this message go to c:\ and find the file Msdos.sys. Remove the Read-Only option. Next, open it in Notepad or any other text editor. Finally, go to the text 'Options' within the file and make the following changes: Add BootDelay=0. To make your booting even faster, set add Logo=0 to remove the Windows logo at startup.

5. Restart only Windows: When restarting your PC, hold down Shift to only restart Windows rather than the whole system which will only take a fraction of the time.

How to Remove Windows XP's Messenger

Theoretically, you can get rid of it (as well as a few other things). Windows 2000 power users should already be familiar with this tweak.

Fire up the Windows Explorer and navigate your way to the %SYSTEMROOT% \ INF folder. What the heck is that thingy with the percentage signs? It's a variable. For most people, %SYSTEMROOT% is C:\Windows. For others, it may be E:\WinXP. Get it? Okay, on with the hack! In the INF folder, open sysoc.inf (but not before making a BACKUP copy first). Before your eyes glaze over, look for the line containing "msmsgs" in it. Near the end of that particular line, you'll notice that the word "hide" is not so hidden. Go ahead and delete "hide" (so that the flanking commas are left sitting next to one another). Save the file and close it. Now, open the Add and Remove Programs applet in the Control Panel. Click the Add / Remove Windows Components icon. You should see "Windows Messenger" in that list. Remove the checkmark from its box, and you should be set. NOTE: there are other hidden system components in that sysoc.inf file, too. Remove "hide" and the subsequent programs at your own risk.
