Adobe Creative Cloud Console 2014 shows INSTALL instead of UPDATE next to installed CC2014 software

From a "STRANGE SITUATION" issue discussed in: RANT: cloud re-install    ("strange situation")
I hoped that the Adobe Creative Cloud Console displayed an update with a fix for a problem I had.
When I open Adobe Creative Cloud it displays an INSTALL button next to ALL my already installed CC2014 versions (except Animate and Muse for some reason)
Clicking on the INSTALL next to PhotoshopCC2014 starts the slow 1.xxxGB download of the full PhotoshopCC2014 from scratch.
Restart did not help
With the CC (CC2013/CC1??) role-out I manually downloaded the installs to not have to download 8GB of installs on multiple workstations - when the CC2014 role-out came it was not clear if this was a complete new version or an update (since Adobe had decided to re-invent naming conventions or to copy Autodesk), so I did not download the installs to a location I have control over. The announcement of the CC2014 (CC2) "update" sounded a lot like the language for previous updates and new feature announcements of the CC version (or was it CC1 or CC2013)
I'll "re-install" all my CC2014 apps when I go home tonight.
Unluckily this means a lot of unnecessary bandwidth usage since all my CC2014 apps are still working.

You are now chatting with 'Fazal'
Fazal: Hello! Welcome to Adobe Customer Service.
Fazal: Hi Jaco.
jaco: hi
Fazal: Could you please elaborate the issue?
jaco: accc (adobe creative cloud console) wanted to update today - once it updated most of my CC2014 apps showed an INSTALL button instead of an UPDATE button next to them
jaco: which means I won't be able to update until I press the INSTALL button - which re-downloads and re-installs all those apps
Fazal: Just to confirm may I know if you are unable to locate the Update button next to the applications ?
jaco: I should have downloaded my Installs and installed manually as I did with CC2013/CC01 - because now I have to download 8GB+ of data
jaco: what do you mean not locate - it is not a messy room
Fazal: Since you have reach the Customer Support, I request you to please contact technical support to fix this issue.
jaco: the button said INSTALL when CC2014 became available and after I installed the softw. it showed UPDATE if an update was available or up to date with a green arrow
Fazal: In this case I request you to please contact our technical team to resolve the issue.
jaco: now they all say INSTALL again - although they work and are installed
jaco: well this was a waste of time
Fazal: I am sorry Jaco, I request you to please contact us via Phone support.
Fazal: I will provide the phone number to contact our technical team.
jaco: Thanks
Fazal: You're welcome.
Fazal: Here is the Phone support number in Australia : XXXXXXXXX
jaco: thanks Fazal
Fazal: You're welcome.
Fazal: Thank you for contacting Adobe.  We are available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Goodbye!

  • Adobe Creative Cloud does not show all my apps as registered.

    Adobe Creative Cloud properly shows my Adobe Photoshop CS6 as registered.  However, it does not show my Adobe Acrobat XI Pro, or my Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.4 as registered.  How can I get these programs to be properly registerd as "MY APPS" in Adobe Creative Cloud?  I am running Windows 8 and have had photoshop for a number of years. I installed Acrobat XI Pro in December, but it has never been recognized in Adobe Creative Cloud as registered.

    Hey Pete,
    I'm not sure why Acrobat XI is not recognized. It is on my system. Maybe try uninstalling and reinstalling it.
    You can uninstall through the OS
    Control Panel > Programs & Features
    and then reinstall it through the Creative Cloud app or

  • Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop is showing a blank screen at every launch (have tried multiple CleanerTool and OOBE-related methods)

    **Background:** My computer, installed with Windows 7 is 2 weeks old. Yesterday I installed Creative Cloud Desktop, Premiere Pro and After Effects on my computer and everything went *absolutely* smoothly, not a bump. I did about ten hours work using these programs. Later that night, when I was about to go to sleep I went to my room and pressed the power button on my PC thinking I had left it on (just my memory, it had no lights on or anything) but it started turning itself on. Being tired, I immediately pressed the button again (I'm fairly sure the interval wasn't long enough for it to start updating).
    This morning, I turn it on and Startup Repair appears, which recommends that I System Restore. So I do. It starts up fine this time, but said programs are gone and briefly I freak out about having lost all my work but the kind people in the reddit techsupport IRC chat here reminded stupid me of what I had forgotten, files stay in a System Restore.
    **Problem:** So, I go to reinstall Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop. First of all, it fails to initialises (I had to go into Safe Mode to find out exactly what the problem was) but I used the Cleaner Tool and it completed the install eventually. But, when I start up the program, it briefly shows the loading symbol before going to a *completely* white screen, nothing on it at all. I have since used the Cleaner Tool again after the program being quite adamant about not being uninstalled, restarted and reinstalled and still, same problem. Then I searched through and performed every solution in there, including changing the name of the opm file, changing the name of the OOBE folder and deleting the OOBE folder (all while the Creative Cloud app is not running including all processes killed). I uninstalled using the Cleaner Tool and reinstalled in-between all of these attempted solutions.
    This has basically eaten up my workday so far.

    I took another look at the creative cloud cleaner instructions and realized I wasnt running it correctly. I read the instructions too quickly. I got it up and running. I had forgotten to run as administrator.

    I probably should not have asked this question at this time as I need to go to bed. It's 11.34 pm. I do hope someone has an answer because I feel very dudded, having finally decided to join the Adobe cloud!

    1) have someone else download for you and send you the installation files on a usb stick
    2) find a better connection yourself and download to a usb stick
    3) use your current connection and a download manager to download the installation files.

  • Adobe creative cloud cc install has messed up my Flash Builder 4.6 serialization

    I have been a flash builder user for several years now. I have had FB 4.6 installed on my computer as a free upgrade from FB 4.5, which came with my copy of creative suite 5.5, which I purchased in 2011.
    FB 4.6 has been working fine - even when I moved to adobe creative cloud last May (2012).
    However, now that I have installed the new creative cloud (CC) applications (and uninstalled the creative cloud cs6 apps) - I am having problems with Flash Builder 4.6. I open it and get a message that my 'trial period' is up. Again, I own FB from my purchase of CS 5.5 - not to metion that it was included in creative cloud. I know that I can download FB 4.7 from creative cloud, but it doesn;t have the design view. So I want FB 4.6. I have seen some solutions to similar problems on the web that recommend reinstalling as a trial and then inputting the serial number once it launches. But I have FB 4.5 on my CS 5.5 installation disc - not FB 4.6 - and I'm not even sure how I could get FB 4.6 anymore. Not to mention that uninstalling - reinstalling 4.5 - and then upgrading from 4.5 to 4.6 - even if possible - would be a huge hassle.
    Can someone please help me to get my FB 4.6 working again? To reiterate - everything was fine until I installed Creative Cloud CC apps and uninstalled Creative Cloud CS6 apps

  • Adobe 2014.1 Not Showing in Adobe Creative Cloud App

    Hi Folks,
    I previously opened a similar discussion. Re: 2014.1 App Updates Not Showing Up in Creative Cloud. The solution in the aforementioned discussion does not work in this new context.
    1. Reimage laptop with clean Mavericks 10.9 install, with Adobe CC preinstalled using CCP 1.4 and pre serialized.
    2. Enter my Adobe ID into Adobe Creative Cloud App. My Adobe ID has a valid CC subscription.
    3. Adobe 2014.1 app updates do not show up, except for Muse 2014.
    4. The Adobe Creative Cloud App did not think that Photoshop or any of the other Adobe CC Apps were installed, because I was given the option to "Install Photoshop"
    5. So, I "installed" Photoshop from the Adobe CC app. Still no updates
    6. Uninstall, reinstall. No updates.
    7. Checked for the existence of AdobeUpdaterAdminPrefs.dat in
    Location: <Startup Disk>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/AAMUpdaterInventory/1.0/AdobeUpdaterAdminPrefs.dat
    This file does not exist on my system: it's just not there. So that fix will not work.
    8. And yes, I logged in and out of Creative Cloud, and Quit the Adobe CC app and restarted. No luck.

    I am not sure about the CC Packager so the following is more general:
    What version of PS do you actually have installed? 
    PS CC 2014.2.1 is the current version.
    Here are links to various updates to see what the current versions are:

  • Creative Cloud application manager shows none of my installed apps

    I've searched through more threads in the community than I care to remember but I'm still none the wiser ... so here goes:
    I have a mix of CC apps installed (Encore CS6, Premiere CC, Photoshop CC & CC2014 and more) some for quite a while. Suddenly, a few days ago the CC apps manager decided that I have none installed. This is what I've tried so far (I'm on Win7 Ultimate 64-bit):
    1) Deleted the %AppData%/Local/Adobe/AAMUpdater directory. Didn't help
    2) Uninstalled and re-installed CC Desktop app. Instead of the Install button next to all the apps I now see Trial! A restart seemed to fix that but still it's pretending I have nothing installed
    3) Renamed the opm.db file in %AppData%/Local/Adobe/OOBE. No change even after another re-install of CC Desktop app.
    4) Quit the App Manager opened Illustrator CC 2014 and checked for Updates (this seems to fire up Adobe Application Manager but maybe not the full-blown CC desktop app, not sure).
    5) Uninstalled and re-installed the CC Desktop app. Before launching it I open Encore CS6 and check for updates. When I launch the CC desktop app it now decides that it wants to install Premiere Pro CS6 for me! I disagree and close the CC desktop app.
    6) I open a few more apps and check for updates. Re-open CC desktop and ... no installed app listed (but at least it doesn't try to install Premiere CS6 any more).
    I noticed one thing: when I check for updates from within an app and click on Preferences from within the Adobe Application Manager window it shows me the correct list of installed applications. So the information on what apps are installed are on my stystem somewhere. Somehow, this abomination of an app that is CC Desktop can't read it.
    I have read posts about the CC Cleaner tool. Don't even go there. Un-installing all my apps just to get CC desktop to work is putting the cart before the horse. Apart from the time and download allowance involved in that I also have no confidence that the CC desktop app will offer all the versions of apps other than the latest CC2014 releases. I still need Encore CS6 and I haven't tried all the 2014 versions yet on my existing projects, so I need to have the CC versions installed in parallel. After all, that was the whole point of the CC desktop app initially installed the latest release in addition of existing apps and not upgrading them.
    I apologise for the somewhat lengthy post but I'm hoping it may save time in the long run.
    Any suggestions gratefully received.
    Many thanks

    Similar problem just happened to me with the Creative Cloud Update—slightly different so I thought I'd share. I have multiple Adobe Creative Cloud programs installed on my computer, all working just fine. I updated the Cloud App to the latest version and then it shows me that I have only one program installed! All my previously installed programs (Photoshop and the like) still work but show as "install" instead of "Up to date". Initially I thought I'd have to re-install the Cloud app or recreate the OPM data base but then I noticed that some of the Cloud app preferences (Apps > Settings > App Language) were different to what I had set previously. I use English (International) language, the update had reverted the app back to English (North American). I flicked back to my previous language and bam, all my apps now show as being installed correctly.

  • Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop does not install

    I am trying to install the trial of Adobe Creative Cloud on my Mac (10.9.5). When I run the Creative Cloud Installer, it shows 'Downloading Creative Cloud desktop' and then stops with the error message 'We’ve encountered the following issues: Installer was unable to create a critical file/directory. Please try installing again. (Error code: 44)'.
    Here is what I tried so far:
    1) Trying again yields the same result.
    2) Trying the install from my admin account yields the same result.
    Other info:
    1) The machine has a licensed copy of Adobe Creative Suite 5.
    2) I previously installed a trial of CS6 but have since removed that to go to CC instead.
    3) Removal of the CS6 trial by the uninstaller failed - I had to remove components manually.
    Does anyone have an idea what the issue could be? Very frustrating as I need to start using CC as soon as possible and purchase a subscription.
    Best regards

    Hi Jeff,
    I came to the same conclusion but finding the permissions problem was like hunting the needle in the proverbial haystack. I don't think using a temporary directory as you suggested is a solution as the user has no control on where the installer is actually installing the files.
    In the end I did as follows:
    Manually removed all Adobe products from my internal disk and cleaned caches, app support folders and preferences (BTW, that did not allow the installer to work either).
    Cloned my internal SSD drive to an external hard disk.
    Formatted my internal SSD drive.
    Re-installed Mavericks 10.9.5.
    Installed CC Desktop successfully.
    Pulled all my stuff back on to my internal SSD drive from the external hard drive using Migration Assistant.
    It took a little time, but everything now works as it should.
    Problem resolved!

  • Adobe Creative Cloud app not displaying already installed apps and can't install new apps Mac OS 10.9

    I've been using the new Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 for a couple weeks now perfectly fine, until yesterday. I use Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects quite extensively. This morning, I opened the Adobe CC app and all but Adobe Acrobat Pro show installed.  The other already installed apps have buttons to "install" but clicking this button shows the "Exit Code: 7 - Unable to complete Silent workflow" error in the logs. Ive tried disabling my Sophos antivirus program and restarted several times.  The already installed applications themselves seem to function normally, they open and work projects. I've even tried to uninstall one of the already installed programs (Bridge) and it fails to uninstall, saying I need to restart my computer and disengage my anti-virus, which I've done. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the Adobe CC app as well, and have the same result.  Help.

    So I've completed the solutions listed in the help article with no changes. Here is how it has gone with each solution listed in the article. Also, it is not clear in the article whether these steps are to be done in sequence or may solve the problem individually, but since Solution 1 fails for me, doing them in sequence was impossible.
    Solution 1: Mac OS: Run the uninstaller in the Applications/Utilities/Adobe Installers folder to remove the program listed as up-to-date.
    This does not work because uninstalling any of these applications does not work. As I stated in the post, the uninstaller for all of my adobe applications (photoshop, bridge, indesign etc) throws the same error each time saying I need to: restart my computer (done) close all applications (done) and disable my antivirus (done, which was fully engaged when I installed the apps originally with no issue) and disable my firewall (done, I don't use one). Not sure what I'm missing on that, plus its a real bummer that I need to reinstall all of my CC apps even if the uninstaller did work because my creative cloud app won't recoginize they've been installed.
    Solution 2: Remove the OPM.db file and relogin into the Creative Cloud desktop application using the Adobe ID tied to your subscription.
    This did nothing.
    Solution 3: Download and install the latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app from Creative Cloud for desktop.
    This did nothing.
    Solution 4: See the steps listed in Solution 1 to remove all installed Adobe Creative software. Once all Adobe Creative software has been removed, use the CS Cleaner Tool to ensure a complete removal.  You can find details in Use the CC Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems | CC, CS3-CS6.
    This did not do much because I can't uninstall the software to begin with.
    What am I missing?

  • Is it possible to install previous TRIAL versions of previous versions of Adobe Creative Cloud Software?

    Look, I'm just testing the trial versions right now.  Don't try to troubleshoot something that I don't ask; this is what I'm looking to accomplish:
    Is it possible to install a trial version of any of the Adobe Creative Cloud software in a previous version?  By that, I am referring to the following:
    I want to install a trial version of Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014; NOT Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014.1.  If you notice, I want to reinstall a trial version of the previous release.  Don't ask why, you'll just laugh for my stupid reason, but I'm merely wondering if it is possible.  Creative Cloud now only offers trials of the newest versions, and I want to install trails of previous versions for my own, personal reasons.  Is this possible to do with creative cloud, or must I do it some other way?
    Is it also possible to obtain the physical installation files so that I won't have to always go through creative cloud to download them again (and then I can just set it up without being connected to the internet)?

    The previous version option is only available to individuals which have a membership.  The availability of previous version titles available is dictated by the computer meeting the minimum system requirements and the entitlement of the membership to access the requested applications.  To future viewers of this discussion if you are unsure what software titles your membership is entitled to please contact our support team directly at Contact Customer Care.
    Wastingyourlifeaway you can download the installers for the CC version of the applications from Download New Adobe CC Trials: Direct Links (no Assistant/Manager) | ProDesignTools.  Please make sure to complete the Very Important Instructions prior to scrolling down the page and clicking on the download link.
