Have hit a brick wall trying to install Creative Cloud on my mac running Win10 via parallels.

When I try to run the executable (even when right clicking to "Run as Adminstrator") I get the following error message.

"We've encountered the following issues:

This application cannot be run from a network drive. Please

copy it to a local folder and re-launch it.  (Error Code: 71)"

I don't see any options to download the entire executable.  I've tried downloading from IE, Edge and Chrome.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Shortly after replying to your message I figured it.

Saving the download file to the local machine from within the Win10 environment.

This PC

> Select Local Disc (C:)

It should look like this

C:\Users\YourFolder\Desktop

And once you have it saved there double click to RUN.

Best Regards,

Katherine

had the same issue in Parallels using Win 10, moving the CreativeCloudSet-Up to C:\Users\YourFolder\Desktop did the trick and got rid of the error code 71 issue.

My god this answer was hard to find.

To expand on Katherine's helpful answer - When on the Windows side of my Mac machine (running Parallels), I downloaded Lightroom.  It showed up in the Downloads folder on my Windows platform;  HOWEVER, the path of the downloaded folder showed it was actually on the Mac (Mac\Home\Downloads) and couldn't be accessed by the installer.  I found something last night I can't find again, so if someone could perhaps expand/clarify/correct what I'm saying?  But basically I went to the Mac side and moved the download to a place accessible from Windows and was then able to go back to Windows and install.

Sorry I can't be more clear!

Thank you Thank You it worked.  Windows running in paralles on a mac must look like a network to the installer.  It obviously is not.  Any installer shoul dbe able to be scripted and compiled to recognize this.  Adobe shoud fix it on the installer instead of having folks have to search for the answer.

>Adobe shoud fix it on the installer

 

You do realize that installing a Windows version on a Mac using an emulator is not by design?

 

Why don't you tell the emulator vendor to fix their program to make it really act like Windows?

No, Adobe should fix their terrible installer.  It's the only program that I have ever seen that cannot, for some reason, run or do anything from a network location.  This should not be an issue with software that is written properly.  This issue with Parallels is that it shares your Mac's home folder with the Windows VM and the desktop and downloads folder is actually located at \\Mac\Home\Desktop and \\Mac\Home\Downloads respectively.  That's so you can access files in both OSes.  But this is why copying it to the actual desktop folder or some other location on the actual drive in Windows works.
