How to install & active

(for version 12.5 and above, older version please NEXT go to page 2)

NOTE:

(1). To be 100% sure of success, you should download the Creative Cloud Cleaner tool, then select Clean all (lose all Adobe apps installed). Anyone who has installed Adobe in another version or in another way, elsewhere, has a success rate of about 50%.
(2). From version 12.4, you need to Disable System Integrity Protection (SIP) to work, otherwise after Patch will crash.

Step 1: Download the installation file (recommended to use the latest version in the above links)

Step 2: run the Adobe ACC Runtime file.

Step 3: Right-click on the Install file and select Open

If it says Damaged, go to Install > select Show Package Contents > Contents > MacOS > run the Install file to install

Step 4: The installation interface appears, enter the device login password, install as usual

Step 5: (Important) After installation, do not run the P4tch file but open Lightroom, will ask for login with a Adobe account, you can login with Gmail, then show the purchase panel like this, then close.

NOTE:
In this step, the Creative Cloud icon must not have a slash for p4tch to be used, if so, it means that you have previously installed AntiCC or something to block Creative Cloud, need to use unAntiCC or Adobe Cleaner Tool to remove and then reinstall

Step 6: At this step, just run the P4tch file and you’re done. To avoid affecting other software, while installing note these 2 places

NOTE: 
The login account should have a Location of US. To be sure, you go to adobe.com and register a new account, while registering note the following: 
- Country/Region: United States
- Date of birthday: >18 years

Hello, when I go to install the program just after selecting the language, a box appears that says: “sorry, an error occurred during the installation (code 501). I close all the applications and the problem continues existing. How can I solve it?

The installation cannot continue as the installer file may be damaged. Download the installer file again.

Both open and Show Package Contents.

Downloaded latest version dmg 12.5. SIP disabled

I followed all the instructions but the development panel doesn’t work, I think there is a licensing problem and the previous versions don’t work either. Can you help me?
