I can't get the Creative Cloud App to install on my Mac (Yosemite). I can download the DMG file, I click the installer and it prompts me for my administrative password, I type the correct password but then nothing happens. I am getting frustated ...
When you say password, you are entering your computer password and not your Adobe one?
I am entering my computer one
Have you logged in to Mac as Administrator ??
Click on the Finder and look for the options listed next to Apple Icon located at the top left corner of the Desktop screen and click on "Go" menu button and select "Utilities" option.
" If present " Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Application Manager folder under Utilities window and trash both folders.
If present, Trash Adobe Creative Cloud folder from Applications as well.
Click on the below link and download & run Adobe Cleaner tool :
If present , Select the option "Adobe Application Manager for Mac OS X 10.6" and then click on "Clean up Selected" .
Step 4 )
Click on the below link and download Adobe Application Manager and install the same :
Once the installation process is completed, installation box will disappear, then open Application folder and locate Adobe Application manager launch icon , double click on it and update .
Once the update is completed. It shud launch Adobe Creative Cloud app.

You need to try from different user account or it is better to enable Root user account and later you can disable it.
I had mentioned steps to enable Root user account in below link :
After logging in to Root account , try to install Adobe Creative Cloud app , it shud work.
In step 4 the update is completed but nothing else happened should i try to install creative cloud again?

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Here I am in 2023 and this solved my very frustrating problem. You're the best!
Really? When I tried the above (in Oct. 2023) I downloaded the file folder shown above in the comment, and the "install" icon under Adobe App Mgr has a circle with a cross around it, and when I try to open it, it states:
"'Install' needs to be updated. (The developer of this app needs to update it to work with this version of macOS. Contact the developer for more information.)"
This link worked for you? I'm on a Macbook air running Ventura 13.2.1, so it SHOULD have no problem, but it still persists.
install the cc desktop app using the "alternative download links" at the bottom of the page at https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-desktop-app-download.html
use the desktop app to install your cc programs/trials
NOTE: win 11 users that have trouble with the latest win 10 installer often have success with the older win 10 installer.
Fixed my problem. Thanks!
how do i sign into my mac as an administrator?
