I appreciate your reply Neelam.
The Adobe CC launcher always show the 'limited Access' prompt at the bottom.
I am not sure about what the limited functions are. I can use the programs but It is unclear of what needs to be fixed.
if you're not in trial mode and can install needed programs, there's no other downside to having "limited access". otoh, if you want to repair that, start here How to fix the limited access error in Creative Cloud desktop app (adobe.com)
I have installed, and run the limted access repair tool, so many times and it says the same thing every time.
'You have 0 errors that need to be fixed.'
Yet I still get the same prompt everytime I start up.
Does anyone know what is wrong here? What else can be done?
