HowTo: Block Adobe Activation using the Hosts file (Updated Jan 2014) Adobe applications includes an activation mechanism since version 8.0 (CS) and later. You can prevent the application from calling-home by manipulating the system's Hosts file.

When you encounter, it is recommended to edit the hosts file. After a certain point, you have edited your hosts file so many times that the original version is all but gone. Of course, you would have ideally created a backup copy of the original but in the event that you didn’t, here’s how to reset/restore the hosts file in Mac/Windows. Restoring your hosts file is slightly different for Mac and Windows. And even within Windows, it’s different for the various versions that exist. Just to make sure you don’t get lost in the process, we’ve provided the support page for Windows (resetting hosts file). Make sure you check that too.

The rest of the stuff is just commented out (description of the hosts file itself). To reset the hosts file, we’re going to open the hosts file in a text editor, replace the entire file with the default text and save it.


• From the Finder, navigate to Go → Go to Folder • Type this in the Go to Folder window: /private/etc/hosts • From the finder window, click and drag the hosts file to the desktop. (we’re doing this because we can’t open the hosts file directly and edit it) • Double-click the hosts file (on the desktop) and it will open in TextEdit (or any default text editor on your Mac) • Erase everything in it. Copy the following piece of text and paste it into the hosts file. ## # Host Database # # # localhost is used to configure the lookback interface # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry. ## localhost broadcasthost::1 localhost fe80::1%lo0 localhost • Save this file • Open the Go to Folder window and open /private/etc/hosts again.

• Drag the hosts file on desktop back to the /etc/ folder. You will be asked about the existing hosts file. Choose Replace and authenticate with the admin password when asked for it. Restart your Mac and restart iTunes to get things rolling again.

Running this takes you through a wizard which fixes the hosts file automatically. The Fix It method doesn’t work for Windows 8. Here’s how to manually reset the hosts file in Windows 8 (the manual method works in all other OS versions too): • Open Notepad • Go to and copy the text of the hosts file for your OS version. Different hosts file contents exist for different Windows versions (although they vary slightly). • Once you’ve pasted the text into Notepad, save the file as “hosts” – include the quotes.
