Hello,
I'm trying to uninstall Creative cloud from my mac for a few days now. Every time I get an error that there are some apps running. I uninstalled all the apps from Adobe, Creative cloud shows only one app left "Camera Raw" - how can I remove it and finally be able to uninstall Creative cloud?

I am kinda late to this but you have to go to "Adobe installers" on your mac in the "finder" after that you uninstall all the apps you have on your computer through the uninstaller. After that then you should be able to go to the creative cloud uninstaller last and it should work. Sidenote: Make sure you press remove with all files related to the app or you will have other items that prevent you from uninstalling the creative cloud again.

Hi,

I have removed all Adobe applications through the Creative Cloud on my Mac, only Camera Raw is left there, but there is no possibility to remove it through the Creative Cloud:

When I launch Adobe Creative Cloud Uninstaller I get an error: 

Julius98A5_0-1617270723362.png
tried to remove Camera Raw plugin from Hard Drive/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/, trash bin is empty, still get the same error with Creative Cloud uninstaller

so what should I do in order to remove Creative Cloud from my mac?

Did you get a solution, yet? I also want to get rid of the creative cloud. Only want to use PSE. I tried this uninstaller (cleaner tool) first and have uninstalled the Camera Raw Plug in. Then I tried again the uninstaller of the Creative Cloud. But there ist the sme message: "couldnt uninstall creative Cloud for desktop...".

Any solution????

Look at the screenshots these are the apps still installed.Bildschirmfoto 2021-12-23 um 20.42.01.pngBildschirmfoto 2021-12-23 um 20.41.44.png

I don't know about doing this on a Mac, but on Windows, I use the task manager to shut down all processes used by the creative cloud app, then I can uninstall it.

I tried every other solution I could find, but literally none worked for me. So I just searched 'Adobe' on finder and deleted all of the files that popped up. I then searched through all of the files in my libary (control+shift+H, then find the folder 'libary') and deleted any adobe related ones. After I emptied my bin, Creative Cloud was removed from my computer. This is definetely the best solution, as it may delete other files on your computer, but it worked fine for me.
