I've been at it for a few days now and still can't get it to work. the install goes to 5% instantly and then throws this error. I even went through my registry and removed everything labeled Adobe, tried to install and it's still throwing this error in my face. Before you point me to previously solved issues with the same error, I've already looked at and tried every single one on adobe's support pages.

Have you tried installing on another device that meets the new system requirements to run Creative Cloud and Photoshop?
Well if it installs OK on your Laptop, that implies there's either a hardware or OS configuration problem on your desktop. Which OS and version # are you running on laptop & desktop?
I have the specs to download the software I even changed the drives and still nothing is working and I don't know what to do.
I just upgraded to Win10 and I have the files from my other harddrive to SSD and I relocated the detection to the right folder and nothing then I tried installing the software and the error comes.
Error 176 means you're trying to install PS on a networked drive. If this is a Teams or Enterprise account, contact your IT admin for assistance.

I tried a million solutions and this worked.
-Uninstall creative cloud - https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html
-Delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe
-Reinstall Creative Cloud
Note: you may not be able to delete the 'CoreSyncExtension' folder. This is fine and it will work anyway.
also this youtube video had a solution that worked for alot of people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVjGoBBh6Ug
