Installing Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 for University Owned Macintosh Systems This guide will walk you through the initial download and install procedures for getting the Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 trial software installed on a University owned Macintosh computer system. Once the desired Applications have been installed they will need to be licensed using a special serialization tool. What happens to my previous Adobe Products such as Creative Suite 6 (CS6)?

Licensing the Adobe Creative Cloud Applications In order to facilitate the tracking of installations, please forward the UGA Property Control number for the system you wish to install it on to [email protected] to receive the Adobe Serialization Tools necessary to license the software. Please note: Any misuse of the Creative Cloud Software and Licensing could result in Grady College forfeiting it’s right to participate in this program. Step 1 Once Grady ITS has received and verified the UGA Property Control number for the system you wish to install the Adobe Creative Cloud; you will receive e-‐mail with an attached zip file containing the necessary tools needed to license the Adobe Creative Cloud Applications. Note: The zipped file name is CreativeCloudSerialization.zip. Step 2 Save the zipped file to your Mac computer. Normally, this would be downloaded to your Mac’s downloads folder. Step 3 Double-‐click the CreativeCloudSerialization.zip file to automatically unzip it. A folder named, CreativeCloudSerialization will be created. The folder should contain four files. Step 4 Double-‐click the file named, AdobeSerialization. A Terminal window will automatically be opened and you will be prompted for your Mac Computer’s password. Once you type your password and click the OK button, you should receive a Process completed message in the Terminal window. Close this Window by going to the Menu Bar and choosing Terminal, Quit Terminal or pressing the standard Macintosh keyboard shortcut for Quit. (Command-‐Q). Note: Please save the AdobeSerialization folder, as it is unclear at this point whether it will be needed again if you install additional applications. In our testing, it was not but we were told it would be needed.
