Adobe CS3 on Mac OSX: Licensing for this product has stopped working.

I ran into this problem when I had my MBP hard drive replaced. I openend Fireworks (or any Adobe app) and got a popup that said “Licensing for this product has stopped working.” Contact Adobe Customer Support.

The first step was the winner for me: deleting /Library/Preferences/FLEXNet Publishing

Hope this helps!
