GenP Method

This guide is a cleaned up version of the great guide found here from the r/GenP subreddit.

This method does not work for Lightroom CC/Classic. Use the below guides for this app.

  1. Downloads Needed
  1. Download and Extract all GenP to a folder (using a file manager such as 7zip)

  2. Download & Install Creative Cloud

    • DO NOT INSTALL “Genuine Software Detector”
  3. Open Creative Cloud & Install Apps you want

    • Choose TRY or START TRIAL
    • Adobe now will ask for a Credit Card before accessing trials.
    • extract CCStopper, open CCStopper.bat, input number 4, hit Enter
  4. Exit and Quit Creative Cloud services

    • CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to open Task Manager
    • Terminate any “Creative Cloud”, “CC…” and “Adobe” Processes running
  5. Stop & disable Adobe Genuine services (IMPORTANT)

    • Click on Windows button, type Services.msc - Open Services
    • Find “Adobe Genuine Monitor Service” and “Adobe Genuine Software Integrity Service”
    • If for some reason you don’t find both, do it for the one that you can find
    • If you dont find one, or both services then skip this step
    • Right Click on each one > Properties
    • Change the following to:
      • Startup type: DISABLED
      • Service Status: STOPPED
    • Hit Apply, OK, and close it
    • You must do it for BOTH services
  6. Delete this folder “AdobeGCClient”

    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\AdobeGCClient
    • If you can’t find this folder skip this step
  7. Run GenP on installed apps of Step #4

    • Check CC2022 box for automatic detection and click the Pill Picture
    • The app will find all the paths by itself
  8. Disable any Adobe programs from startup (IMPORTANT)

    • CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to open Task Manager
    • Click Startup button
    • Disable Adobe Programs
  9. Registry Editor (optional, but recommended)

    • Click on windows button, type Regedit.msc and Open the Registry Editor
    • Navigate to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\
    • Look for the {0E270DAA-1BE6-48F2-AC49-.........}
    • Click on it (it will show new things to the right side)
    • Double click or right click > Modify on System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree
    • Change key value to 0
    • Click OK and close it.
    • If you get an “Unlicsened Pop-Up” try this fix

    • All done
