Creative Cloud Node.js (gnode.exe) Command Prompt Problem

New Here ,

Hi there, I installed creative cloud successfully, it opened and it updated itself. Everything was fine but suddenly several command prompts opened with the path referring to a not existing gnode.exe!

Inside the cmd window it is written:

Welcome to Node.js v16.13.2.

Type ".help" for more information.

>

 

I checked the path to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud Experience\libs\gnode.exe

but there was only a node.exe

I tried to change the name, and it went well but after restarting, the creative cloud opens white showing nothing and saying it wants to repair but can't. (there was also same exe file in common folder I also renamed it but still the same!) 

 

Any time I install a fresh creative cloud I have this problem, my laptop is new and it is TUF FX507ZR. I am using windows 11 and cannot downgrade to 10 coz there are no drivers available yet!

 

Please guide me on what to do to solve it. 

Thank you.

Thank you for step-by-step guide. The cleaner Tool shows nothing left. Is there anyway to get the CC offline installer for a better installation? 

And now I see some of my apps like MS Word does not work or some icons are lost and app shows with white paper icons! You think the prev node.js cmd problem has cuased all these?

i forgot you made a name change.  was that file left in an adobe subfolder?

 

if so, rename it back to its original name and then rerun the cleaner in case that file was supposed to be removed.

 

and i gave you a link to download the cc desktop app that should match your os.  that link should be used and the correct file downloaded.
