When you launch a Creative Suite 5 or CS5.5 product or component, the software generates a log file (amt3.log) for the shared components used by the applications. These shared technologies are called Application Managed Technologies, or (AMT). AMT includes the Software License Agreement, Enter Serial Number, Enter Serial Number Upgrade, Adobe ID, and Activation panels.
