A Creative Cloud application installation or update fails and the following error message appears:
"Please close the following applications to continue - dynamiclinkmanager."
Close the Creative Cloud apps that you are updating. Most of the apps that are included in the program use a system called Dynamic Link to communicate. So, it's necessary to close all Creative Cloud apps before installing or updating any apps.
Sometimes the computer can still be in process of shutting down the underlying processes even when the applications are closed. If none of the apps are open, but you are receiving this error, wait about 30-45 seconds and click Retry.
