Creative Cloud - Unable to reach Adobe servers

Hi everyone,

Everytime I start the creative cloud app to manage updates, etc. I'm able to see my applications for a second and then the screen is replaced by the error message that it is unable to reach Adobe servers (see images below).

I had to install Photoshop and Lightroom by starting creative cloud and click on install during the one second I had before the error screen comes. Then it would download and install in the background. So, clearly it has a connection...

I've tried every solution I could find in the forum. From firewall settings, fixing host files, removing the OOBE folder, reinstalling creative cloud or manually update it. Nothing worked.

Does anyone else experience this or does someone have a solution for this? I'm getting really frustrated, as I'm paying for software that doesn't work as it should.

Thanks in advance and best regards.

Please wait , before uninstall everything we can try some troubleshooting steps if you wish .

I guess you are getting error when you try to update CC apps .  I believe you are trying to update from Help menu in Photoshop .

Have you tried disabling Firewall temporarily and checked ?

Instead of normal uninstallation of Adobe Creative Cloud app , try clean uninstallation and reinstallation once.

Follow below steps :

Uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud .

Creative Cloud Help | Uninstall the Creative Cloud desktop app

Disable Firewall Temporarily.

Step 1 :

Open C:drive and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\ " Common Files" \Adobe.

Open Adobe folder and delete folders named Adobe Application Manager and OOBE.

Step 2:

Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe.

Open Adobe folder and if present delete Adobe Creative Cloud folder. [**important]

Unable to delete??? rename it to Adobe Creative Cloud-old.

Step 3 :

Press Windows button (located between Ctrl and Alt buttons) along with R button together at a time , you will get a run command window.

Type in below command and hit 'Enter' key.

appdata

Then navigate to Local>Adobe.

Open Adobe folder and delete folders named AAMUpdater and OOBE.

Step 4 :

Make sure Adobe Creative Cloud is not listed under Control Panel > Program and Features. list.

Then download and install Adobe Creative Cloud application and check.

Also make sure , Automatic Proxy settings detect is ON>

Yes I did. I added all Adobe Applications, also the PDApp.exe and I even turned off the firewall completely. Didn't work.

You had mentioned that you had tried re-installing Adobe Creative Cloud application .

Were you able to install Adobe Creative Cloud application using Online Installer or Offline installer ?

Example :

Online installer :

https://ccmdls.adobe.com/AdobeProducts/KCCC/1/win32/CreativeCloudSet-Up.exe

Offline Installer :

Adobe CC 2015 Direct Download Links: Creative Cloud 2015 Release | ProDesignTools

I used the online installer. This installed that annoying creative cloud app manager. I was then able to click on install for Photoshop and Lightroom inside the manager, before the error appeared (just seconds later). Now, when click on check for updates inside Lightroom, the app manager opens and displays the error.

I'll try uninstalling everything and install Photoshop and Lightroom directly. Hopefully I can use the software without that useless app manager.

Well, that's odd.

This seems to have done the trick. It is now working and I'm able to update my applications.

Thank you so much!

Best regards from Switzerland

Same here. Have had this error for a month. Turned off firewall, opened up ports on my router, updated mac OS. Nothing seems to fix this. When I ping adobe.com in Terminal, 90% of the time it times out with 100% packet loss.
