I've been at it for a few days now and still can't get it to work. the install goes to 5% instantly and then throws this error. I even went through my registry and removed everything labeled Adobe, tried to install and it's still throwing this error in my face. Before you point me to previously solved issues with the same error, I've already looked at and tried every single one on adobe's support pages.

Have you tried installing on another device that meets the new system requirements to run Creative Cloud and Photoshop?

It's able to install fine on my laptop, but the specs on that are less so than on my desktop. I've tried both my SSD and HDD. It won't install on either.

Well if it installs OK on your Laptop, that implies there's either a hardware or OS configuration  problem on your desktop.  Which OS and version # are you running on laptop & desktop?

I tried a million solutions and this worked.

-Uninstall creative cloud - https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html

-Delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe

-Reinstall Creative Cloud

Note: you may not be able to delete the 'CoreSyncExtension' folder. This is fine and it will work anyway.

 

also this youtube video had a solution that worked for alot of people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVjGoBBh6Ug
