I've just tried opening PSE 8 for the first time in a while, and I get an error message saying, "Licensing for this product has stopped working. Error 150:30." I've restarted my computer, tried again, and still no luck. Anyone have an idea what can fix this?

Nach einem Update meines Betriebssystems (Mac OS SnowLeopard auf Mac OS Lion) beim Startversuch von PSE_8 der Fehler:150:30 (Die Lizenzierung für dieses Produkt funktioniert nicht mehr). Der gleiche Fehler tritt auch bei meiner älteren Version PSE_6 auf, nur ohne Fehlernummer. Bridge funktioniert.

Können Sie mir helfen?

I have used photoshop elements 8 without a problem. Today I can use "organize", but cannot use edit. It tells me to restart PC, which does not help. It tells me the error is 150:30. Can you help?

Same here-- I tried to use the EDIT and it came up with the error code 150:30 , Licensing for this product has stopped working. I attempted to download the licensing end repair tool for Windows as i am running Windows 7. It would allow me to download. I am upset as I have pictures that i would like to use PSE8 on... I have researched , forums, the internet and found no solutions and am unable to locate where I can contact ADOBE by email. Help, I am sure there is someone out there who can help us...........

Error 150:30 x 2.


My Photoshop keeps saying Error 150:30. I have tried everything suggested to fix it. It still doesn't work. I even took it to the Apple Genus bar at the Apple store and they couldn't make it work. Sense I teach Photoshop and give a lot of presentation, I really would like the one in my computer to work.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 gives me a message that it encountered a problem when I click on EDIT. It says that I have to restart my computer before it can be launched. Error code 150:30. I've tried that several times and the problem persists. Any suggestions?

Here's an idea! Rather than post an error message like 150:30, and then not tell the customer the meaning of that because it's exhibited on Photoshop Elements 8, which is too old for you to any longer answer a simple question for, make a list of the what the error message numbers mean so the user has some idea of how to proceed. I know the entire system is set up to sell us something else or charge money for help Adobe should provide free of charge, but maybe just this once you could act like human beings instead of greed motivated self serving sales machines.

I just updated my Mac to OS 10.9 and when I started up Photoshop Elements, it threw Error 150:30 and said that there was a licensing issue. See below:

Licensing for this product has stopped working.

This product has has encountered a problem which required that you restart your computer before it can be launched (which I tried.)

If you continue to see this message after restarting your computer, please contact either your IT administrator or Adobe technical support for help, and mention the error code shown at the bottom of this screen.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled ELEMENTS install problems, Chat not working?.

I've been trying to use photoshop elements since I bought a "newer" MacBook Pro. I have the original DVD and reinstalled but it tells me that I have an error 150:30. It also tells me to go to adobe.com/support which is no longer a valid URL.

I've tried going to their site, I can get logged in but when I try to go to manage my account, the password that I use to login doesn't work there. The email they have for me is one I can no longer access.

I have the serial number , and seldom use Adobe products due to this kind of time wasting support. Anyone have suggestions for an alternative program to Elements?
