Acrobat 9 or CS4 Products Did Not Install FNP Licensing Service VISTA FIX

16 August 2009 109,833 views One Comment

I recently ran into an error on Adobe Acrobat 9 which I have not seen before. After some research there seems to be quite a lot of people who have had this same problem, but no good fix yet. However, there have been a few fixes for Acrobat 8.


Upon installation of Acrobat 9 on a Vista workstation, the licensing service (FLEXnet) never installs.The error we are trying to fix looks similar to “Licensing for this product has stopped working”.


You’ll see from the following steps that these tools are actually for Acrobat 8, but they do fix Acrobat 9. First, download the Acrobat 8 Licensing Service Fix: CLICK HERE

Follow the directions and install. Then restart.

Next, run the Adobe Licensing Repair Tool. CLICK HERE

Download and follow directions. A good restart after everything should get the licensing set back up again.


Goto start>run and type in services.msc – about half way down you’ll see a service called FLEXnet Licensing Service and it should be running. If you don’t see this service, you’re back to step one. Good luck!
