  • Creative Cloud Desktop App Does Not Work

    Since the last updates, the Creative Cloud Desktop app no longer works.  That is, I can no longer sync files, upload files, or update apps.  Everything with the Creative Cloud Desktop App used to work fine.  I am using Windows 7, 64 Bit system. 
    The files I try to upload through the desktop app, are under 5 GB.  Some are 10 MB.  When I try to upload a file I get a message that says: Sync Failure - with no detail about the failure.
    When the app tells me there's an update(s), when I either choose one update or update all I get a message that says: Update Failure - with no detail about the failure.
    I have tried to solve this problem by turning file and font sync off and then back on, or logging out and then back in.
    The Abobe Team, should test this product further.  I just want the community to know that this product does not always perform as expected.  Therefore, it's not always reliable.
    I would upload some screen shots, but after pressing the camera icon, the images would not insert.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Are you getting Error code 1 while running CreativeCloudInstaller.dmg file ?
    If so , follow below steps :
    Important :  Launch Activity Monitor and "Force Quit" all the process related to Adobe like Creative Cloud setup, CoreSync, AAMupdater, AAMupdater notifier, Adobe Crash demon from Activity monitor.
    Click on the Finder and look for the options listed next to Apple Icon located at the top left corner of the Desktop screen and click on "Go" menu button and select "Utilities" option.
    Locate Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Application Manager folder under Utilities window and trash both folders.
    Click on the below link and download & run Adobe Cleaner tool :
    Select the option "Adobe Application Manager for Mac OS X 10.6" and then click on "Clean up Selected" . oblems/_jcr_content/main-pars/accordion_container_1/accordion-par/accordion-item-1/accordi on-item-par/procedure/proc_par/step_3/step_par/download/file.res/AdobeCreativeCloudCleaner
    3) Click on the below link and download Creative Cloud Installer file and use the same to install the Creative Cloud Desktop application.

  • After Security updation of Windows 7 in Boot Camp (Mac Book Pro with Retina Display) on 13-Nov-2013, Windows 7 Desktop Gadgets are not working properly.

    After Security updation of Windows 7 in Boot Camp (Mac Book Pro with Retina Display) on 13-Nov-2013, Windows 7 Desktop Gadgets are not working properly.
    This is boot camp problem, because in other normal notebooks (e.g. SONY VAIO, Lenovo with Windows 7) the gadgets are working normally.
    I am attaching the screen shot of Desktop Gadgets and Security updates of Windows 7.
    Kindly solve this issue ASAP.

    Have you reinstalled the latest Boot Camp Windows 7 drivers, just in case Microsoft overwrote some of them during the Windows 7 security update?

  • Mac App Store not working? (Glitching and flashing!)

    Mac App Store not working? (Glitching and flashing!)
    I was at my friends house, everything was working fine. I went to my girlfriends house, everything was still working fine. Then once I got home, I got back out my 2010 MacBook Pro 15" to use and some pages on the internet looked a little odd. They were all in HTML format and wouldn't go back (Pages such as Skype and Apple's main page). I thought they were just down or being fixed up, but then I went to update my Mac under the App Store. I clicked the App store and a message popped up saying "App Store cannot verify a secure connection with the App Store." The options were "Cancel" or "Continue". I clicked "Continue" so I could update my Mac, but weird enough, the App Store started flickering (strobing; blinking) as seen in this video by someone with the same problem:
    I do not know what to do or why this is happening, so help would be VERY nice.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    Click the Clear Display icon in the toolbar. Then try the action that you're having trouble with again. Select any messages that appear in the Console window. Copy them to the Clipboard (command-C). Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).
    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.

  • Most of the default Mac Apps does not work after Mavericks Upgrade

    Hi, I did everything, but nothing has brought me out of this misery .
    I Updated Maverick just 2 days after its release. Had no problems, other then slow Finder. I restarted my iMac last week, and got caught with these issues, known to me, not sure what all bugs are there.
    All these apps does not work: App Store, TextEdit, Preview, Terminal, iBooks, Maps, Calendar, Contacts, Mail, etc
    I do not know how to do a clean install, as I had upgraded from Snow Leopord to Mountain Lion and to Maverick using App Store, which does not open at all.
    Hoping to get some response soon from Apple support team to help me.

  • Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App Doesn't Work Windows 8.1

    The Creative Cloud Desktop App doesn't work on my PC running Windows 8.1. As shown below, no apps appear and the settings dropdown does not function with either left or right click. I have tried to uninstall, reinstall, change the name of the OOBE folder, connect directly to my cable modem by passing my router, removing all internet & firewall protection and I am unable to download any CC apps that I do not have on my PC. I have been updating existing apps from the help menus in the apps and have not used the CC app for downloads for a long time so I do not know when the problem started, but it does not work now. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Automatic updates are also not working.

    Turning off "Enable Protected Mode" in the Security Tab of Internet Properties allowed the Creative Cloud Desktop App to function properly. I am still looking for a better long term solution that does not put my computer's security at risk.

  • Reminders App does not work on Yosemite with two iCloud accounts.

    The Reminders App does not work on Yosemite (10.10.1) with two iCloud accounts. It seems like when there are two iCloud accounts connected in Yosemite (10.10.1) the plist file for Reminders disappears.
    I have tried restarting Reminders; restarting the mac; starting the mac in recovery mode to repair the disk and disk permissions; and starting the mac in recovery mode and reinstalling OSX.

    Yes sharing Reminders list works. The problem is, I have one shared iCloud account with a colleague (shared calendar, Reminders and email). It makes it easier to run our business with a single shared iCloud account...I know it's not the typical usage.

  • My appstore app is not working on my macbook pro?

    my appstore app is not working on my macbook pro? It simply shows a piece of paper with a pencil, ruler and paint brush.

    Delete the app and all the associated files using this utility > Download AppCleaner for Mac - Uninstall your apps easily.
    Then re download the app. You won't be charged again.
    How to re download apps from the Mac App Store:
    Open the App Store. From the menu bar click Store > Sign In
    Click Purchases from the top of the App Store window.
    Select which apps you want to re download. Then right or control click where you see Installed  then click Install.
    Make sure and use the same Apple ID used for the original purchase.
    If you continue to have problems with the app you can report it to Apple here >  Apple - Support - Mac App Store - Contact Support
    And go to the app at the App Store. You should see a link to the app developer's site for support.

  • I upgraded to Mountain Lion yesterday, but since doing so I find that my 1Password app will not work. I have checked for 1Password updates but there are none. Is there a compatibility issue

    I upgraded to Mountain Lion yesterday, but since doing so I find that my 1Password app will not work. I have checked for 1Password updates but there are none. Is there a compatibility issue

    Hmmm...I'm using 1Password Version 3.8.20 (build 31499) with a fresh install (scrape and pave) of Mt. Lion on my iMac and it's working fine.
    I use Dropbox to sync 1Password so for my fresh install I simply downloaded 1Password from Agilbits website and installed it.
    Have you tried reinstalling 1Password?  Depending on how you purchased it, download it from their website or from the Mac App store to reinstall/replace it.  (IIRC v3.8.x comes directly from Agilbits and v3.9 from the Mac App store.)  You shouldn't have to uninstall it, the new download should overwrite the existing copy.
    As with anything else, be sure to run a  backup first!
