The libraries I painstakingly created for Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop are no longer visible. I tried everything I could find to get them back, and had an Adobe support person take over my computer to fix the issue but nothing has worked. I see a message saying, "Something went wrong initializing Creative Cloud Libraries". What is the problem Adobe???

Hi Annieoakley2,

Did you try these steps,If not ,Please try.

For windows computer

start your Task Manager, go to the Processes tab, then scroll down to CCLibrary.exe *32, choose it, then click on the End Process button at the bottom right. It will ask if you really want to end the process, click End Process.

Than open your applications again and check.

If still it does not work.

Please Refer to this link.

Solution to the issue: Adobe Creative Cloud Libraries panel doesn't load in desktop products

I am also having the same issue (as of a couple of days ago, linked with new CC update??); and none of the apps which use CC Libraries are functioning - returning the "Something went wrong initializing Creative Cloud Libraries" error. I have tried and failed to resolve it using the link provided above and other suggestions, and results are below:

End tasking CC Libraries - does not work.

Ctrl-Alt-R to relaunch - does not work.

Firewall test on 127.0.0.1:{port} returns neither option specified in help, but instead Upgrade required.

Hosts file is fine and no proxy is in place.

This error has also been reported here (Library Panel not working properly​) where the issue seemed to be a conflicting mounted volume, I have no such volume or issue.

As all of my assets are now inaccessible in the CC Library and the web access links does not actually provide the assets themselves (e.g. a .ai file downloads as .jpg) can someone at Adobe please investigate this as a matter of urgency.

Thanks!

I have the same "Something went wrong initializing Creative Cloud Libraries" + "Upgrade Required" problem!! I spent the whole evening experimenting, without any result!!

First, the library-window was not available! After resetting photoshop (Ctrl-Alt-R ) / deleting "Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5 Prefs.psp" the window was back, but did't work. After ~5minutes loading the message appears.

I checked the host-file and the only entries are:

  • 127.0.0.1       localhost
  • ::1             localhost

I sign out from photoshop + cloud and deleted all file at [USER]\AppData\Local\Adobe\OOBE\ and restarted the pc. After sign in => same result.

I checked my firewall, there are no blocked files!

Kill the CCLibrary.exe process in Task Manager and restart photoshop didn't help.

When i try to open the URL with the port from "settings.json" => http://127.0.0.1:49357/  i see only the message "Upgrade Required"

It's frustrating isn't it.

I have since spent 90 minutes on an online chat which essentially went through the help page, but they were unable to remote on due to my organisation's security policies.

I then uninstalled every Adobe product on my PC and ran the Adobe CC cleaner. I then trawled through the hard drive and deleted over 5GB of files that Adobe thinks is okay to leave behind after you uninstall and clean, and went through the registry and deleted a lot of Adobe keys as well.

I reinstalled CC and Photoshop as a test... the library won't initialise and port test still says "Upgrade required". Grrr!

Whilst I could arrange for Adobe to remote on I don't have much confidence as they seemed to be working from a fairly limited script, so I've gone for the nuclear option of getting our IT to wipe my hard drive and restart. I'll update here once it is happened.

EDIT: Adobe staff - it would be really helpful if you could at least tell us under what conditions the "Upgrade required" message is triggered by the CCLibrary process, there must be a coder hanging about who can provide this information.

I have the same issue as well. I've followed all the instructions on the "Libraries don't load on desktop products" page to no avail.

The localhost:{service port} returns "Upgrade required", which is supported by the CC Library Process.log, which reports "Service: client_1: Incompatible version. Update required".

This is incredibly frustrating and unacceptable -- this is a widely reported error now going back more than a month, and no solution, fix or patch seems to be forthcoming from Adobe.

UPDATE: Sorry it's taken a while.

A complete reinstall of my OS did not solve the issue - so don't all start wiping your hard drives!

This infers that it is a network connectivity issue (for me at least) as I am on a corporate network with clearly dodgy settings.

I'm told from another Adobe chat that the "Upgrade required" message refers to network settings needing 'upgrading' rather than CC or any Adobe product, which makes sense but is poor error message coding.

I've been given a list of all the Adobe URLs and ports for whitelisting which I've listed below in case it is of use to anyone else, but as yet I'm still waiting for my IT department to implement it.

P

~~~

These are Adobe Wildcards URL for the Whitelisting.

*.adobe.com

*.adobelogin.com

*.typekit.com

*.adobesc.com

@amazonses.com

Turn off SSL Scanning on HTTP and HTTPS(Port 80 and 443) respectively.

Apply these exceptions in the Firewall, Proxy and Web Filtering content or Websense. If Caching is enabled on Proxy try disabling the same.

You can also share these URL’s if needed.

Typical Adobe.  No solution.  No acknowledgement.

Thanks for your response. Yesterday, before I received your suggestion I tried the exact same thing while going through the list of all Adobe apps that were running. Interesting that every time I stopped the cclibrary.exe process, it would start back up again. So I tried ending it a few times. That must have been what it needed because I have my libraries back, at least for the time being. This is an issue that Adobe needs to resolve.

I'm having the same issue when navigating to the localhost:{service port} found in the settings file of the cc libraries. I've tried all the troubleshooting tips suggested but no luck.

Any update on this issue?

Not really. The InDesign tech spent 45 minutes poking around and then said it was a Creative Cloud issue. Handed it over to those guys, who have called twice when I wasn’t around. I noticed in Processes that now I have about 4 versions of Distiller running at once, and I get that start-up issue. I’ll post if any resolution arrives.

Have you tried reseting the adobe creative cloud application? That worked for me back when I had the same issue. I can still get the error from time to time. But just re-launching the cc app has solved it every time ever since.

have EXACT same issue. Have one Wi-Fi router - one Mac and One PC with different Adobe accounts. On Mac Library not work. On Pc - works fine.
I did EVERYTHING - reinstall, check Host file, deleting OOBS, Reboot, Reset everything, and got "upgrade required" error.
BUT - then i try to connect to internet with my iPhone - and VOILA Library works fine! Change internet back to my Wi-Fi and got same Error. Even when my library working on iPhone's internet -  "upgrade required" stays.

So I guess our problem is two-sided with our Mac settings and internet provider.
