How to check the base version

The base version is required when uninstalling apps and licenses. See, Uninstall Creative Cloud products. 

To check the base version of an application within an installation package created on the Adobe Admin Console, examine the file XXX_Install.pkg/Contents/Resources/optionXML.xml.

Two examples taken from this file, follow for Premiere Rush and for Prelude:

<SAPCode>RUSH</SAPCode>
<prodVersion>1.5.16</prodVersion>
<mediaLEID>V7{}Rush-150-Mac-GM</mediaLEID>
<baseVersion>1.5</baseVersion>
<productVersion>1.5.16.564</productVersion>



<SAPCode>PRLD</SAPCode>
<prodVersion>9.0</prodVersion>
<mediaLEID>V7{}Prelude-9-Mac-GM</mediaLEID>
<baseVersion>9.0</baseVersion>
<productVersion>9.0.0.417</productVersion>

In Windows this information is also shown in the file Package/Build/HD/<application SAP code and version>/Application.json, for example:


 “BaseVersion”: “24.0",

  “ProductVersion”: “24.2.3.521"
