Adobe's DRM Fails "Catastrophically."

In a stunning bout of honesty, Adobe’s licensing subsystem would like you to know that it has managed to fail “catastrophically.”

The poor human who caused this error writes:

Adobe pushed out an upgrade of its Creative Suite. I installed it, as prompted. This is what happens when I try to run any element of the Suite after the install.

Click on the modal dialog box and the program closes. For extra redundancy, there’s a second error message that reads “licensing for this product has stopped working.” But I am impressed that I wasn’t merely able to get the programs to fail, but that I got them to fail “catastrophically.”
