Since the latest MacOS Sierra update the Creative Cloud App keeps crashing after a couple of minutes. Reports of Adobe Desktop Service crashes keep on piling up in the log files. The app asks to be reinstalled fresh from the Adobe site, but this doesn't work either. I'm on a Macbook Pro 2015 and running MacOS Sierra 10.12.3beta.

Thanks for your answer.

After a bit of contemplation, I decided not to follow this through. The reasons being that the first link tells me to use the Creative Cloud app. This app was the one that continuously crashed and the other being that it seemed a very drastic approach removing everything including presets, plugins, etc.

But thanks anyway!

All of that... that is Adobe's job, not mine. I think I'll just switch to a software that actually functions.

I may have found a solution to this. If I go to https://www.adobe.com/au/creativecloud.html and make sure I am logged in before I access Photoshop or InDesign (for example) it seems to keep them open. I was having trouble wih them closing as most people here seem to, but since I did this, I haven't had any issues for the last four days (when I made the accidental discovery).
