• Long Path Tool Serial Number

    With the October 2018 update, versions of Creative Cloud and Document Cloud are not available for deployment via serial number licensing. On November 30, 2020, many customers will also be affected by expiring serial numbers. To avoid interruption and to
    access the latest versions of the apps, customers must migrate to alternate licensing models. For more detail, see the announcement.
    If the volume serial number has expired, users may experience licensing or serial number errors. You can use the AdobeExpiryCheck tool to check if the volume serial numbers have expired or are expiring soon. If they have expired or are expiring soon, it
    is recommended that you re-serialize with a new serial number.

    AdobeExpiryCheck (v1.0.0.3) is a command-line utility for IT Admins to check whether Adobe products on a computer are using serial numbers that have expired or are expiring. IT Admins can use this tool if they are not sure whether the serial numbers used
    in their organization are expiring or if they want to identify the machines with expiring serial numbers.
    With the AdobeExpiryCheck tool, admins can get the information about the product licensing identifier (LEID), the encrypted serial number, and the expiration date. To identify installs for Acrobat Professional DC and Standard DC, see Identifying Document
    Cloud Installs.
    Once you have collected the output files from all the client machines, you can store them in a folder and run scripts to find the machines having expiring or expired serial numbers. For example:
    You can also parse all the output files and export the result in a file. For example, you can use the following command to parse the output files for serial numbers expiring on 30 November and export the result in a .csv file:
    Data can be accessed from disks, devices, and network shares using file I/O APIs. Files and directories, along with namespaces, are part of the concept of a path, which is a string representation of where to get the data regardless if it's from a disk or
    a device or a network connection for a specific operation.
    Character count limitations can also be different and can vary depending on the file system and path name prefix format used. This is further complicated by support for backward compatibility mechanisms. For example, the older MS-DOS FAT file system
    supports a maximum of 8 characters for the base file name and 3 characters for the extension, for a total of 12 characters including the dot separator. This is commonly known as an 8.3 file name. The Windows FAT and NTFS file systems are not limited to 8.
    3 file names, because they have long file name support, but they still support the 8.3 version of long file names.
    Each component of a path will also be constrained by the maximum length specified for a particular file system. In general, these rules fall into two categories: short and long. Note that directory names are stored by the file system as a special type of
    file, but naming rules for files also apply to directory names. To summarize, a path is simply the string representation of the hierarchy between all of the directories that exist for a particular file or directory name.
    Relative paths can combine both example types, for example "C:..\tmp.txt". This is useful because, although the system keeps track of the current drive along with the current directory of that drive, it also keeps track of the current directories in each
    of the different drive letters (if your system has more than one), regardless of which drive designator is set as the current drive.
    In editions of Windows before Windows 10 version 1607, the maximum length for a path is MAX_PATH, which is defined as 260 characters. In later versions of Windows, changing a registry key or using the Group Policy tool is required to remove the limit.
    See Maximum Path Length Limitation for full details.
    With the addition of multi-user support via Terminal Services and virtual machines, it has further become necessary to virtualize the system-wide root device within the Win32 namespace. This was accomplished by adding the symlink named "GLOBALROOT" to
    the Win32 namespace, which you can see in the "Global??" subdirectory of the WinObj browser tool previously discussed, and can access via the path "\\?\GLOBALROOT". This prefix ensures that the path following it looks in the true root path of the system
    object manager and not a session-dependent path.
    With the October 2018 update, versions of Creative Cloud and Document Cloud are only available if deployed via named user licensing. On November 30, 2019, many customers will also be affected by expiring serial numbers. To avoid interruption and to
    access the latest versions of the apps, customers must migrate to named user licensing. For more detail, see the announcement.
    Serial numbers have a finite lifespan, and a number of serials are expiring through the end of 2019. While most customers can and should migrate from serial numbers to named user licensing, re-serialization is possible for those needing to remain with
    traditional serialization.
    If you are using the Wizard to configure the application prior to deployment, enter the license information in the user interface as described in the user documentation. Doing so writes the serial number information to the abcpy.ini file. This file needs
    to be placed in the same directory as the MSI used at installation time. Deployments that use EXE files require that the Setup.ini file contain the serial number information for the application. For example, during a bootstrapper Setup.exe deployment, the EXE file reads Setup.ini to get the needed information. You can set
    this up manually as follows:
    In the diagram below, a command in Powershell lists some values regarding the above two USB devices. Clearly, what we have been calling the serial number does not conflate with what the identification in Powershell calls a serial number.
    I tried the setup on a different computer we will call Computer 2. As if by magic, GSmartControl now showed me all of the correct information including serial number. Well now I have even bigger problems. Why would it work properly on Computer 2 but not
    Computer 1? What does the computer have to do with it?
    Note: For single-user subscriptions, you can usually sign in so that a serial number is not required. You may see a Stand-alone license type for 2017-2019 products, but a User License type for 2020 and later product versions.
    Before adding the certificate to the keystore, keytooltries to verify it by attempting to construct a chain of trust fromthat certificate to a self-signed certificate (belonging to a rootCA), using trusted certificates that are already available in
    If keytool fails to establish a trust path from thecertificate to be imported up to a self-signed certificate (eitherfrom the keystore or the "cacerts" file), the certificateinformation is printed out, and the user is prompted to verify it,e.g., by
    comparing the displayed certificate fingerprints with thefingerprints obtained from some other (trusted) source ofinformation, which might be the certificate owner himself/herself.Be very careful to ensure the certificate is valid prior toimporting it as
    a "trusted" certificate! -- see WARNING Regarding Importing TrustedCertificates. The user then has the option of aborting theimport operation. If the -noprompt option is given,however, there will be no interaction with the user.
    This command by default prints the SHA1 fingerprint of acertificate. If the -v option is specified, thecertificate is printed in human-readable format, with additionalinformation such as the owner, issuer, serial number, and anyextensions. If the -rfc
    option is specified,certificate contents are printed using the printable encodingformat, as defined by the Internet RFC1421 standard
    The entity that created the certificate is responsible forassigning it a serial number to distinguish it from othercertificates it issues. This information is used in numerous ways,for example when a certificate is revoked its serial number isplaced in a
    Certificate Revocation List (CRL).
    Each certificate is valid only for a limited amount of time.This period is described by a start date and time and an end dateand time, and can be as short as a few seconds or almost as long asa century. The validity period chosen depends on a number
    offactors, such as the strength of the private key used to sign thecertificate or the amount one is willing to pay for a certificate.This is the expected period that entities can rely on the publicvalue, if the associated private key has not been
    keytool no longer displays password input when entered byusers. Since password input can no longer be viewed when entered,users will be prompted to re-enter passwords any time a password isbeing set or changed (for example, when setting the
    initialkeystore password, or when changing a key password).
    Some commands have simply been renamed, and other commandsdeemed obsolete are no longer listed in this document. All previouscommands (both renamed and obsolete) are still supported in thisrelease and will continue to be supported in future releases.
    Thefollowing summarizes all of the changes made to the keytool commandinterface:
    In this way of batch personalization, the serial number inside the device is used as the OTP name, and the random number generated by the tool is used as the secret key, and they are composed as the seed and are written to device.
