Hi,

My partner is trying to run Lightroom Update Downloader to retrieve his files from the Adobe cloud.  He's running Windows 10 Home x64 21H2 with all updates installed as of this post.

 

We've tried setting the default browser to the latest versions of Chrome, Opera GX, Firefox, Edge and IE.  No joy,  Also tried applying the reg fix here https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/update-operating-system-and-browser.html?internal_browser...  - No joy.  Also tried the fix mentioned here https://community.adobe.com/t5/captivate-discussions/update-required-your-browser-or-operating-syste... but the file paths do not exist. Created the path and placed the EXE mentioned in the attached txt file but again , no joy.

 

Always getting the Update Required error regardless of anything we try.  If anyone has any ideas it would be helpful.

 

Thanks.

OK, I figured it out.  Turns out that Lightroom Downloader REQUIRES Creative Cloud to be installed.  The error message is very unclear and misleading - Adobe, please fix this!

Oops, I said Lightroom Update Downloader - I meant just Lightroom Downloader.

Installing creative cloud did not work for me. I am on windows 11 with edge, firefox.  still not working. I got an email stating that I have images in lightroom but I have not used lightroom since 2010. So I would love to see what adobe has of mine.
