The Creative Cloud desktop app instantly crashes when I launch it. This started occurring after the 5.7.0.1307 update. The first time it crashed, error reporter opened saying "Sorry, an error occurred. Creative Cloud has encountered a problem and needs to close". After subsequent launches, the error reporter no longer opens and the app continues to crash instantly on launch. I've tried re-installing it several times. When I download the Creative Cloud desktop app from the website, it downloads version 5.6.5.58, which launches fine, however the app doesn't let me do anything unless I update it. After I let it update, the desktop app crashes instantly when it launches.

 

I've tried:

 

None of the above have worked.

Thank you for the response. I tried re-installing the desktop app again today before checking Event Viewer, and could not find any logs from opening the application. However, I was able to find a log from a few days ago when this error started occuring, and it read as follows:

Faulting application name: Creative Cloud.exe, version: 5.7.0.1307, time stamp: 0x62528393
Faulting module name: vulkan-1.dll, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x615e3a26
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x000000000001

I have not been able to find any information about this specific error online, although it seems that others have experienced similar problems in the past with reference to different .dll files with different Adobe products.

I looked to the file mentioned in the log that was faulting, and it seemed odd to me that it was named vulkan-1.dll. I re-named the file to vulkan.dll, and it seems to have fixed the issue.
