Adobe gives you the full version of a product for 7 days. After this, you normally have to pay. Luckily the file which keeps track of when the trial was started is stored locally. This means you can edit it with a text editor to restart your trial infinitely. You need to do this once every 7 days, but it only takes about 1 or 2 minutes.

How To Keep Using Adobe Products Including Adobe Photoshop & Acrobat 3D For Free After Expiration of 7-Days Free Trial [Tutorial]
Step 1: Go to C: >> Program Files >> Adobe
Step 2: Open the folder of the product you want. You must’ve already installed it.
Step 3: Search for a file called “Application.xml”. It usually is inside the map called “AMT”, but where the AMT map is located is different for every product so I recommend you search for it using the search function.
Step 4: Edit it with a text editor. You need to start the text editor as an admin.
Step 5: Find <Data key=”TrialSerialNumber”>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</Data>. Screenshot of where it is located:
Step 6: Make the number a bit higher. Just add 10 or something like that. If your number was xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx36 make it xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx46 . It doesn’t really matter how much you add.
Save and your trial will have reset.
