Sometimes, the Creative Cloud desktop application does not display all the applications available in Creative Cloud. The apps you can't install on your computer are removed from the download selection screen. Some of the situations that cause this issue are listed below.

Creative Cloud desktop app

Note:

If you uninstalled an Adobe Creative Cloud application but are unable to reinstall, see CC desktop lists applications as "Up to Date" when not installed.

Creative Cloud desktop app running in compatibility mode

If the Creative Cloud desktop app is running in the compatibility mode, it might not display all the available Creative Cloud applications. Windows Compatibility Mode allows Windows to emulate a prior version of the operating system to support applications that may not run in the current installed version. Compatibility mode is not necessary for the Creative Cloud desktop app and prevents the application from correctly detecting your version of Windows.

To fix this issue, disable Windows Compatibility mode for the Creative Cloud desktop app:

  1. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud\ACC\

  2. Right-click Creative Cloud.exe and choose Properties.

  3. On the Compatibility tab, deselect the Run this program in compatibility mode for option.

  4. Restart your computer.

  5. Launch the Creative Cloud desktop app.
