Technical support for product trials

Adobe offers complimentary support for installation issues only. Once the trial period has ended, Adobe Customer Care cannot assist you in extending your trial, even if the trial ended prematurely. Trial periods end prematurely for various reasons. Several reasons include changes to your system time, or modifications to the product installation or launch files (that is, permissions changes).
