Are you getting a “This unlicensed Adobe app will be disabled soon” error when launching an Adobe app?

Here’s the second error message, “Unlicensed apps may contain malware that expose your files and personal data to security risks”.

Followed by, “Adobe provides a 10-day grace period to resolve this issue with exclusive discounts on replacement apps”.

Before you try fixing the error, do note that if your Windows Firewall is being managed by your antivirus, then all of the changes below must be applied to that antivirus Firewall.

If you get popups, block them with Firewall Creative Cloud, Licensing services.

Otherwise, block with the Firewall of the app.exe (e.g. photoshop.exe).

If you still get popups after that, Host file edit or run guide 4 and try again.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to fix “This unlicensed Adobe app will be disabled soon” and “Unlicensed apps may contain malware” (GenP/Photoshop).

  • Method 1: CCStopper / Host File
  • Method 2: Firewall rule on app-in-question.exe
  • Method 3: CC loading continuosly / loop (clean)

Method 1: CCStopper / Host File

CCStopper and DevNull .bat file.

For GenP method only—CCStopper.rar all files must be extracted and either .bats options above must be run as Administrator.

CCStopper selection (2) for Internet Patch > (1) for Firewall Block.

Create a firewall rule on the following services, located in:

  • Path of ADS – C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\ADS\Adobe Desktop Service.exe
  • Path of Licensing – C:\ProgramFiles\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\NGL\adobe_licensing_wf.exe

Tip: Go to the same location above, right-click the “hosts” file, open with Notepad, copy and paste the IP addresses from the list above under the file, save it, and restart your computer.

For Mac:

  1. Close all of your Adobe programs.
  2. Open the Terminal (command + space bar, type “Terminal”, and hit enter).
  3. Type “sudo nano /etc/hosts”, hit enter, type your password, and hit enter.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the document and copy and paste all the IP addresses from the list above.
  5. Press CONTROL + X, press Y, and press ENTER to go back to the Terminal’s main screen.
  6. Paste this command “sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder && sudo dscacheutil -flushcache” and hit enter.

New IP addresses: If the error is not fixed, try adding these IP addresses: 127.0.0.1 gw8gfjbs05.adobe.io and 127.0.0.1 ph0f2h2csf.adobe.io.

Tip: If it still doesn’t fix the error, you need to browse the Reddit AdobeZii community for the latest IP addresses to add.

Method 2: Firewall rule on app-in-question.exe

This is for GenP or MonkRus methods.

The below example will be for Adobe Photoshop, but the method is similar across all programs.

  1. Navigate to Windows > Windows Firewall > Advanced Settings.
  2. Select “Outbound Rules”, select “New Rule”, and follow these steps:
    • Rule type: Program.
    • Program Path: Right-click the “Adobe Photoshop” app > Open file location > Copy the URL of the file > Paste the URL into the “This program path” field.
    • Action: Block the connection.
    • Profile: Tick “Domain”, “Private”, and “Public”.
    • Name: Choose any name.
  3. Select “Finish”—you will lose internet access going out from the application but the app won’t be able to check your license.

Method 3: CC loading continuously / loop (clean)

Due to CCStopper or other firewall rules created (host file that are working against each other that completely blocks the internet—the reverse of option 1).

Reverse CCStopper Rule:

  • Windows > Windows Firewall > Advanced Settings.
  • Check both Inbound and Outbound.
  • Disable or remove the rule “CCStopper” or other firewall rules you created asked in the guides.

Reverse Hosts File edit:

  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc.
  • Right-click “hosts” file > “Open with notepad” > remove all the lines related to:
  • BLOCK ADOBE # in this article, save the file, and reboot your system.

This should fix the looping and bring CC to its default behavior.

However, the internet will be active, which can cause issues for the currently installed apps.

If so, use option 2 and create an Outbound rule for the “.exe” programs that are malfunctioning.
