Hello,

I run Windows 10 and Adobe CC on my sdd, but install all of my adobe apps on my hdd. My hdd recently crashed and I replaced it with a new one. Ever since I replaced my hdd, I haven't been able to install Photoshop CC or Illustrator CC on either my SSD or new HDD. All other apps install just fine. I get the same error when attempting to install either programs:

Exit Code: 176

-------------------------------------- Summary --------------------------------------

- 2 fatal error(s), 0 error(s), 1 warnings(s)

FATAL: Can't install to a network location

FATAL: Error occured in install product workflow with error code 176 error message

WARN: target folder 'E:\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017\Required\PDF\Settings' does not exist, treating package 'AdobePhotoshop18-en_US_x64' as uninstalled

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Exit Code: 176

-------------------------------------- Summary --------------------------------------

- 2 fatal error(s), 0 error(s), 1 warnings(s)

FATAL: Can't install to a network location

FATAL: Error occured in install product workflow with error code 176 error message

WARN: target folder 'C:\Users\Jos\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator\21.0.0' does not exist, treating package 'AdobeIllustrator21-Settings' as uninstalled

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I tried removing all Adobe products using the uninstall tool and adobe cc cleaner tool, then reinstalling several times with no luck.

Anyone have similar issues or know how to fix this? Thanks.

Hi justin.joson,

I understand that you are facing issues while installing Photoshop and Illustrator.

If you notice, you get a location with the error.

"WARN: target folder 'E:\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017\Required\PDF\Settings' does not exist"

Please go to this location E:\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 and rename this folder to Adobe Photoshop CC 2017.old

"WARN: target folder 'C:\Users\Jos\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator\21.0.0' does not exist"

Go to this location and rename Adobe Illustrator to Adobe Illustrator.old

Please retry the installation and it should be fine then. let me know if this works or if any further assistance is required. Thanks!

Regards

Himanshu Gupta

The issue is those locations don't exist.

1) For photoshop error, I no longer have a drive E:, so that's completely gone and I'm not sure why its targeting that drive/folder when my current install preferences are pointing to my new HDD drive D:.

2) For illustrator when i locate C:\Users\Jos\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\, there is no illustrator folder. It doesn't exist either.

Hi there

I also faced this issue and resolved it with the direct download.

But now Ps is not integrated in the CC-app.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Hi Himanshu,

I downloaded the PhotoShop & Illustrator direct download zip files. When I clicked both Photoshop & Illustrator "Set-up.exe" files from the zip folder, it gave me installer file maybe damaged error. It created the new directories:
C:>Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Illustrator CC 2018

C:>Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CC 2018

C:>Program Files (86) > Adobe > Adobe Illustrator CC 2018 (32 Bit)

C:>Program Files (86) > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 (32 Bit)

I tried both 32 bit & 64 bit. All getting the same error.

I moved the folder & Set-up.exe" file from the zip folder to the new directory

C:>Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CC 2018

Restarted the PC, after clicking "Set-up.exe", and it installed like 6%, there is still that 176 error again.
"Sorry, installation failed - We are unable to install Illustrator CC this time. (Error Code: 176)"

My PC has "Program Files" & "Program Files (x86)". There is no 64. Is that the reason why it is failing because there is no installation for 86 bit? Then why I tried the 32 bit, it still failed?

I used to have Photoshop 2017 on my PC. The update to 2018 remove the access to the old 2017. Now I do have Photoshop or Illustrator.

However, my Premiere Pro, Character Animator CC (Beta), Media Encoder CC, and Audition got updated without error. There is something different on the Program Files (x86) directory. There is no directory set for those working apps within the directory. All the files are installed on

C:>Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Audition CC 2018

C:>Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Media Encoder CC 2018

C:>Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018

Please help. Thanks & have a great weekend!

I just got this error for the first time while updating to PS CC 2019. This message was clearly incorrect since i do not have a network drive mapped to my PC. After a lot of searching I found a link to the installation log and found that the main Directory was correct and sent the program to Directory C:\Program Files\Adobe etc but Directory2 was directed to F:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Installers.

I recently built a new PC with C and G drives and migrated all the programs to the C drive. In the prior iteration it also had an F drive. I couldn't find DBHelper which is the source of the path to the F drive and couldn't find anyplace to redirect Directory2 to the C: Drive so I stole 50GB from C and created a new F partition. The installation proceeded with no further problems with CC2019 right under CC2018, 2015 etc..in C:\Program Files\Adobe.

The wierdest part of this is that the new F:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\Adobe is empty!!
