Using a MacPro running 10.10.3

This morning Creative Cloud told me there was an update - Adobe Acrobat DC, I clicked update and the install started then stopped asking me to quit an app - can't recall the exact name but it was something like SafariCloudHelper, which I needed to quit via Activity Monitor. I continued with the install but its stuck at 35% (and has been for ages now).

Tried a restart and simply back to square one.

Any ideas?

Sorted - restarted, used Activity Monitor to quit anything related to Safari (SafariCloudHelper etc) then ran the installer - installed fine. Restarted and all good.Shouldn't have to do that though!

Have you tried it in the exact order I suggested and you using 10.10.3?

Restart Mac

Make sure Safari is NOT running

DO NOT run updater - CC should state '1 update available'

Run Activity Monitor

Stop any activity related to Safari - in my case I had to stop x2 different activities

No click update in CC

Wait for progress to complete

Restart Mac.

okay so I have

  1. Done a system update. Now on Mac os x 10.10.3
  2. Force quit all (two) safari related processes in activity monitor
  3. uninstalled acrobat pro

and the download is still failing at 35%. I am in a worse position now that I don't have any version of acrobat at all!

Any other ideas out there?

Found a work around. Login via your web browser into Adobe whereby you can see your Adobe ID and all your purchase history, app management etc. Click on your name in the top right corner and a pop up box emerges. Click on 'Desktop' under Document Cloud Apps. This will take you to the Cloud version of Acrobat Pro DC and from there in a blue box you have the option of downloading the program directly to your PC/Mac outside of the Creative Cloud  Installer. This had worked seamlessly for me. Hope this will work for you too. No serial numbers required as it auto detects from your Adobe ID account. Regards.

By chance I found a different way to get this working. I didn't get a chance to try the above so can't confirm if it works however what I did was...

(on mac)

  1. When the install failed I went to disk utility and noticed a "Acrobat_DC_Web_WWMUI.dmg" in the disk image side bar.
  2. I right clicked it and selected "Reveal in finder"
  3. In the finder I drilled down to Acrobat DC > Acrobat DC > Acrobat DC Installer.pkg
  4. Ran the installer and the app successfully installed to my apps folder

From this I gather that the whole app was able to download but the app couldn't automatically install itself for whatever reason so manual installation was required.

Hope that helps someone

Yes, going in and clicking a desktop icon from the Adobe Account ID got mine working much faster. Thank you very much!

For me it worked in the start but in the end there was an Error 301. The problem was that i need a clean unistall of  everything from Adobe. So i found this reply solution, that worked. https://community.adobe.com/t5/get-started/re-creative-cloud-update-error-301/m-p/10788484#M444804 .

Stuck at 42% for me. Clearly a bug. Reluctant to remove acrobat pro in case the DC install doesn't work.

Mine is stuck at 42% for 2 days now. Can't run manual install as it asks for a serial number, we have a corporate cloud subscription so I have no such serial.

Bummer.

Hi Matthew,

Sorry you're having difficulties with that.  Have you tried using the Acrobat DC direct download links instead?

Other posters above indicate better success when using the program installer directly, rather than going through the Creative Cloud desktop app manager/downloader.

Hope that helps!

I uninstalled DC as I was having a PDF issue that support could not help and uninstalling and reinstalling was a suggestion. I have tried all the suggestions on this forum to no avail, i am stuck at 5% with the error message 'downloadstalled_peerlistempty'

I am too nervous to now uninstall Pro now but I am completely stuck.

For me, I had adobe acrobat open at the same time as I was trying to download the Pro DC. I closed that, and the download continued.

Took almost an hour to figure it out though, after trying the other solutions put forth by adobe. The notification window isn't helpful or user friendly. Shouldn't have to do that much troubleshooting.

Download a fresh installer from Adobe. Start your Mac in Safe Mode (restart while holding down shift key). Restart your Mac when installer is complete to be back in Standard mode.

So, it appears that CC isn't a download manager. It doesn't restart from where it left off, it just restarts downloads.

Tried installing Acrobat 3 times already. Gave up after a day of waiting and installed Foxit in 3 minutes.

CC is an excuse to claim that CC products are just one app so you can't, say, do a AE render on one machine and continue working in PS on another. Or have one worker using PS and another using AI. Wow! Didn't notice this "feature" being touted, did we? Adobe is looking after its shareholder quite well. Pity about the paying (more and more and more) customers.
