I followed the instructions to rename OODB folder to OODB.old. Creative Cloud disappeared from my desk top. I then went to www.adobe.com/go/applicationmanager to dowmload Creative Cloud desktop manager. During the installation I got error message 50. Do I need to reload all of Creative Cloud? If so, how is the best way to do this? At the present time Iam not able to use photoshop. Please help me.
I completely agree. I am tired of doing this every single time they update CC desktop. Yes I can go thru the process to fix it, but it is very time consuming and that onus should not be on paying customers. and I am someone who very much likes so much of the new cloud subscription model. I still have issues when I am remote in a country like Brazil in place with bad to no internet, you run into major licence trouble but that is a different problem.
Why on this fracking earth do we need to swallow a crappy application like this? Consuming resources (processor and memory) JUST for a fracking UPDATE???
Let the user make this decision: Do you want a Download Mananger OR will you use the HELP>UPDATES menu item of your software to do THAT?
Isn't that simpler?
If this sh*tty CC app worked at all, probably I wouldn't complain, but EVERY TIME I need to update the CC app itself is a hell on earth!
Please, send all your CC app developers back to coding and QA school!
Seems the same error others have mentioned is still a problem with adobe's product. Windows 7, 64 bit.
I have this exact same error. Has been an ongoing problem. i'm so sick of uninstalling and starting again.
Are they ever going to fix this!
Is anyone else lucky enough to get this error every time creative cloud has an update?
i am and have to uninstall everything and then run CC cleaner. Then reinstall everything... Yay Adobe CC!
Is this an accurate summary of the 'install error 50 problem'?
Have I missed anything?
As an addendum to the procedures described here, its also worth mentioning that one should backup the Appdata/Roaming/Adobe.... folders for the apps one has installed. The CC App after a clean install doesnt seem to pick up the existing installed apps (Lightroom etc) so when you click on Install to update it seems to trample over settings history etc.
Perhaps the simplest solution for Adobe would be to forget the CC desktop app, and just allow the various applications to update directly?
Update: No idea why, but it seems the LR5 updated Ok without destroying settings, history; but as I say Photoshop was not so lucky.
