After installing succesfully on windows 11, Creative Cloud launches but remains stuck in the loading. After a while a blue message appears saying it's taking longer than usual. It advises to restart the computer and relaunch the app (but the same happens if I do). If I wait longer, I get this message.
If I chose repair, I have the same problem. If I go to the address mentioned in the error message, the page is non existing. If I uninstall the app through adobe's uninstaller, dowload a new copy, restart and install again, I have the same problem.
I have a Dell Precision 5760 with the last firmare and Windows versions available.
Please help me solve this problem as soon as possible, as I need to work. Thank you so much!

Leonie, please see https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/creative-cloud-missing-damaged.html for several solutions to resolve the error in your message. If you download and run the CC Cleaner Tool, then make sure to rename the correct OOBE folder.
Hello, thank you for your reply, I followed the steps described but I end up with the same problem and error message.
I am sorry to hear that, Leonie. For your next steps, please download and run the CC Log Collector Tool from http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-log-collector.html.

Hello Jeff. I have a Cretive Cloud suscripcion with evertyhing. Now, I have bought a new computer from DELL (Optiplex 7780 AIO) with Windows 11, and it is impossible to install creative cloud. I have exactly the same problem as described in this tiquet: Creative Cloud Desktop, after installed, it keeps loading forever remaining stuck in the loading. After a while a blue message appears saying it's taking longer than usual. It advises to restart the computer and relaunch the app (but the same happens if I do). Could you please help me, I need to work !
Hi @Charly4 On your Optiplex 7780, which configuration do you have for each element? Which applications are you installing with CC? Have you run a Dell pre-boot diagnostic test to see what is going on? Even if the computer is new, have you checked to make sure you have the latest BIOS update? Finally, try running the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to remove everything you've tried so far and start over. Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner tool to solve installation problems (adobe.com)
-Hello and thanks for trying to help. I’m going to answer your questions: My new Dell Optiplex 7780 All-in-one that comes with Windows 11 is totally updated included BIOS , drivers, …everything. My computer works perfect , diagnostics are ok and it is a Intel i7 with 32GB ad 1 TB of HD. I use the full suite of Microsoft 365 (Outlook, Word, Excel, Teams, Todo,Onenote..) all works perfect. Also, my internet connection it is fine. Let me tell you that I already used the adobe cleaning tool and problem was NOT fixed
What happens is: I can install adobe creative cloud but… at the end, it opens an at the center I get the message (I’m translated from Spanish) that says: “Loading creative cloud…” and in a few minutes, below the window, appears another blue message that says it's taking longer than usual. It advises to restart the computer and relaunch the app (but the same happens if I do). Also, I tried to disable all the security that comes in Windows 11 just to check if that might be the problem but it seems that is not the problem.
First adobe product I tried to install even before than “creative cloud” it was (from Adobe site), Adobe Reader but was not possible (and still is not possible). I get a “connection error” at the beginning of the process or using another way to install, at the middle of the process it opens “creative cloud” and I get again with the “loading creative cloud..”.
I have use also the adobe logs collector. I have included the generated files and some screenshots about the process and the erros I get.
It looks like the problem, I believe, is that for some reason, creative cloud CAN NOT CONNECT to the Adobe Servers and this reason must rely in some Windows 11 problem with adobe tools (I disabled thw Windows 11 firewall and this is not fixed). Also, my old computer with Windows 10 has Creative cloud , in the same home wireless network and it does work as always. However, I need the new computer…
How can I send you the logs so you can see what's going on?
Please help. Thank you!
Hi @Charly4 Thanks for this additional information. Also, what graphics card is in your system? Is it the NVIDIA GeForce 1650 GTX?
It seems you have tried most of the solutions so far. You can attach or copy and paste your logs to a reply here, and we'll ask @Jeff A Wright to examine them and give you more guidance. Meanwhile, you can reach Adobe support through these methods:

Hello, as I said, this answer does not allow to attaach the files. Zips are not allowed and the other file, with a different extension, is removed when I click publish, On the other hand, my graphics card is.Intel UHD Graphics 630. However, I'm absolutly possitive that it is a connection to the Adobe servers. In fact, I have narrowed the problem! The thing is : As you know, a personal PC in Windows (Configuration - Accounts - Obtain access to work or school), there, adding your Microsoft company account allows to access company data (like email, onedrive files, etc). The fact is: Removing the account in my PC and Adobe reader and Creative Cloud, both now work!! It would be helpful for adobe to check this logfiles and farther investigate.. but I can not upload them..If you provideme another way, I will be glad to send them. thank you
Hi @Charly4 I'm so glad to hear you figured out the configuration problem. Thanks for sharing this info so it can be of help to others. You can post a link here to a Dropbox or similar online sharing site to access the zip files. To confirm, you can make this change in Windows 10 under Settings > Accounts > Access work or school.
Hello. Yes, I confirm is this screen and I will provide you some more information. First of all, here are the result of the logs collector.: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Aif2WG4uo-oyq9QLM7MNoJa1anNnmQ?e=9uLd6f
Also, from my company IT Team, they found exactly what happens and I will provide this information as it is:
This issue occurs when the device has a Windows OS and the user adds a Microsoft 365 work account (Add a work or school account), if the organization has configured in Microsoft 365 an app protection policy for Windows devices without enrollment (Windows Information Protection), and in the policy, the organization has added the adobe.com domain as a protected cloud resource.
Under this scope, when the user runs a browser from his personal computer and accesses any Adobe web page, the protection policy forces the user to access from the web browser and by logging in with their work account. Adobe installers, when trying to access their server URLs, the protection policy blocks these connections.
I hope this information will help you if someboyde else has this issue in the future and maybe, there is something Adobe can do.
Regards and thank you for your help
Thanks for sharing this information, @Charly4. I'm sure it will be helpful to others, as it's something I don't think most people would consider checking. However, I note this isn't the only (unrelated) issue with MS 365 I've encountered!

I had a very similar issue with a brand new Dell XPS 8940 with Win11, right out of the box. After a few hours of troubleshooting, I ended up reinstalling MS c++ 2015-19 redistributable. That seemed to do the trick.
Good Luck, Walt
OMG! Thank you guys so much for being way smarter than I! I just got a new laptop as well and wes pretty worried for a hot second! lol
Thank you!!! I just got a brand new XPS with all the bells and whistles. I downloaded the X86 in the link you provided and now CC works. All the best to you!
Thanks. Had similar issue on my new asus zenbook pro duo & reinstalling MS c++ 2015-2022 fixed it.
Pretty old post, but maybe there is already a CC update for windows 11 to avoid this bug?
