Adobe Creative Cloud License Version

Within the SLCache folder there is a license file (hidden to Finder) that contains all the products your license is valid for, and a field that contains the length of that list. This EA returns that value as an integer, or returns 0 if the file is not present. Smart groups with this EA will need to be updated on a yearly basis, or as new products come out, depending on your environment. This file also exists in Windows, if you want to relay that to your Windows admins.
