Hey everyone, I'm having this issue lately, I tried uninstalling an app from the Creative Cloud launcher and now I'm stuck in a loop.
It asks me if I want to keep the preferencies of the app, if I click to remove them it then asks me again few moments later. Did someone else found this issue? If so, how did you manage to solve it?

Dreamweaver, but I had the same problem months ago with Substance Painter and I had to uninstall and delete every trace of CC on my computer. I thought that solved it but apparently it did not.

reset the cc desktop app by making sure it's in the foreground, then press:

Win: Ctrl + Alt + R
Mac: Cmd + Opt + R

then try uninstalling dreamweaver.

It pop ups again, it's a loop, whatever I click doesn't matter, it comes back.
