A lot of misinformation in this thread,
Sorry to say but you are a bit misinformed as well:
Users who already were signed in had no problems and could use there software

- First run after a fresh installation, new systen for example and new install of CC: not even demo mode if you were not once signed in before. This happened in our classroom situations;
- Users that were logged in but logged out (say log out from a desktop to log in on a second laptop) could not log back in again and software would not run at all, not even in demo mode. This last case was warned for by Adobe itself!
