PickMeApp does not capture some PhotoShop CS4 files and folders.

  1. ?“C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Locales” - contains files required to start PhotoShop CS4. .
  2. ?“C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD” database files required to start PhotoShop (contains serial number information). PhotoShop starts but cannot find license service and stops work.
  3. “C:\Program Files\Common Files\ Macrovision Shared” file with license service. The service must be registered in system.

To complete a transfer, move those files to a new PC manually.

?

PickMeApp does not capture some PhotoShop CS4 registry keys.

  1. ??? [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\FLEXnet Licensing Service] -? FLEXnet Licensing Service registration.

To complete a transfer, move those registry keys on a new PC manually and reboot PC.

Note: The workaround was tested in the laboratory environment . Please confirm that it works for you, too.
