Adobe Creative Cloud installs a helper application on your computer to manage the installation of your Creative Cloud products. This application is called Adobe Application Manager. You can launch it from the Applications folder (Mac OS), or in the Start Menu > All Programs menu (Windows). Using the Adobe Application Manager, the Creative Cloud installs products locally to your hard disk. Products run using local processing power and are the same as boxed products, except for updates. An ongoing Internet connection is required when using the Creative Cloud.
Important: The CCM Applet is installed on Windows XP and Vista and Mac OS 10.6. Be sure to allow access through any firewall software to prevent interruption of service.
- Verify your Internet connection in case of unexpected delays.
