Creative Cloud install starts but ends up in a white screen; unable to login and download apps

Hoping someone can help, been working on this one and have tried everything I can find. 


Trying to install Creative Cloud on Win 10 Enterprise 20H2.  I have tried the online installer and the offline installer, both do the same thing - the install starts, gets partway through and then the creative cloud window goes white.  It seems to install - the icon shows up on the desktop and it's in add/remove programs, but when you try to run it, the window pops up but is all white and looks like it might be frozen, but isn't - the mouse indicates that there is activity but no matter how long we wait, nothing happens.


We have tried disabling firewall, antivirus, deleting the certificates, changing browser settings, uninstalling, reinstalling, using CC remover, repairing, etc, but can't figure it out.  Not sure if it's some setting in Windows that we're missing or if it's just the internet connection being a problem, but any suggestions anyone has would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks!
