Trying to install Photoshop 2022 on Windows 11 21H2.

Error message says "The installer you downloaded won't work on your computer. Choose 'OK' to download the installer that matches your Windows. Error Code: 717"
Pressing OK directs you to install the exact same installer. It's an endless loop.

The Creative Cloud installer does the same thing.

The desktop meets/heavily exceeds all System Requirements.

Chaoszero112, where did you obtain the installation files for Photoshop CC 2022 from?

21H2 removes Internet Explorer, so you guys will be seeing a flood of these when it hits general release in the next few days.

It may just be 2021 and I'm just confused. It's the trial available. But that seems irrelevant. The question was why does the Adobe installer refuse to install on Windows 11. Error Code 717 also isn't on the help documentation.

 

I have a feeling @ja5F9F is correct. I saw something related to Internet Explorer when I was troubleshooting. I just never would have guessed an installer from a reputable company such as Adobe would hardfail if deprecated software wasn't found. And with a misleading error message that didn't mention anything about a software component missing.

 

Hopefully this can be added to the error code troubleshooting page.
