Just switching over to a new machine. Only PS, AI, InD, LR and DW are available to download from the CC App. When I go instead to the CC page online, it's all there but when I go to download anything from there I get a "XX is now installing" page but either nothing happens or I get an installer in my downloads folder that does nothing. I've signed out and uninstalled CC app and reinstalled. I did a clean up of all Adobe stuff and tried again with no luck. I'm sure I'm not alone on this but I haven't see exactly this in the community in a quick search. Any help would be welcome. Thanks!
Hi, I have the same problem trying to install Lightroom on a new Mac Studio. Creative Cloud says it's installed and updated, but it's not in the app folder on the Mac. A funny thing is that the un-installer is there, under tools, but I can't find Lr anywhere on the Mac. Any help much appreciated.
Lr still shows as installed. Nothing happens when I click "open", just as before.
try to repair
if that fails go ahead and uninstall using the correct uninstaller from https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html#sa_src=web-mes... and then reinstall
if that fails, do a clean cc install following each applicable step:
uninstall every cc app including preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html
then uninstall the cc desktop app, again using the correct uninstaller,
clean your computer of cc files per http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
check for, and if available, update your os
repair all ms visual c++ versions that can be repaired.
update your ms visual c++, if it can be updated
restart your computer (don't skip this)
reinstall the cc desktop app, https://creativecloud.adobe.com/apps/all/desktop?action=install&source=apps&productId=creative-cloud
if you're unable to download the cc desktop app at this stage, use the link 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
I have tried all your suggestions, except the ms visual c++ part, as I can't find any trace of ms visual c++ on this computer. I also removed Adobe Acrobat, and checked that Rosetta is enabled. Still no Lr in the app-folder, and it doesnt start from cc.

in the chat field (lower right), type AGENT
be patient, it can take quite a while to reach a human
p.s. if you're contacted by anyone (via email or private message), it's much more likely to be a scammer than an adobe representative. ie, double check for an employee badge if contacted in the forums and look for an adobe.com domain in the email address if you click reply to an email. then check again and be very suspicious. any other method of contacting (or offering to contact you) is almost certainly a scam, https://community.adobe.com/t5/using-the-community-discussions/staying-safe-in-the-adobe-support-com....
p.p.s you can also use phone (but chat is usually quicker), https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/phone.html

@crompsy for premiere pro and after effects:
you probably need to install rosetta 2. among the ways to do this is to start Photoshop with the Intel version. here are two other ways, How to Install Rosetta 2 on Apple Silicon Macs (osxdaily.com)
that's been the solution to a recent surge in mac problems (with new apple silicon macs) caused by premiere pro (and after effects) installs resulting in exit code 183.
there are also the older problems and fixes, https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/fix-error-183.html,
but you should try the rosetta 2 install first, because its absence is most likely the cause of your problem.
Just to clarify the issue it's primarily that the apps available for download was limited and downloading from anywhere else (online CC with all the apps) failed. I discovered that somehow my VPN seemed to be interfering with the CC app. Once I turned it off everything behaved as expected!
good to hear.
(and that's the 2nd vpn vs adobe issue i've read today).
Ah, interesting. Yeah, I burned number of hours then figured out basically by accident. So it goes! Thanks for weighing in!
you're welcome (and congratulations on solving the problem).
