Used to have Adobe XD installed on my Windows 10 PC for the past few months until I had to use it again, and realized I couldn't find it in the task bar or start menu.

Upon opening Creative Cloud app, it says "install" rather than open, meaning it was removed without my knowledge and I had to redownload it.

The main issue comes from being unable to update or install it because of the screencapped error below.

Any ideas of how to fix this?

Hi Joshua,

It looks that your Path environment variable is corrupted and doesn't contain the path to powershell.exe.

In order to fix this, follow the steps:

Right click start button -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Environment Variables... -> Select PATH -> Click Edit...

Make sure to have C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\ among the entries. If you don't have it, add it there.

You should restart the Creative Cloud app before trying to install again, or to be sure, it's better to restart your computer.

Let me know if it fixes your problem,

Vlad
