Try this first. Repairing or uninstalling the Creative Cloud desktop app usually fixes this issue.
A bad WIFI connection, antivirus software, or firewalls can prevent the completion of your installation.
If you're connected via WiFi, try a wired connection. If you're connected via a wired connection, try using a different cable.
Disable the antivirus software temporarily and try to install the app again. See your antivirus documentation for information on how to disable virus check temporarily.
Software firewalls restrict access to your computer. Some software firewalls prompt you when a program attempts to access the Internet.
- If prompted, allow the Creative Cloud desktop app to access the Internet.
- If you are not prompted, temporarily disable the firewall and try the installation again. (See your firewall software documentation for help.)
Many organizations use a hardware firewall and proxy server that can prevent software from accessing an outside server. A hardware solution applies to all computers within the corporate network. Most home networks do not use hardware firewall or proxy technology.
Contact your company’s IT department to obtain firewall or proxy information.
