I keeping getting a "You've been signed out" message everytime I try to log into the Creative Cloud desktop application.

I have tried the following to no avail:

  1. Uninstalling and reinstalling the Creative Cloud app.
  2. Renaming the OOBE folder to OOBE-old.
  3. Deleting everything in the SLCache.

All of the above were suggested either on these forums or by support. None have worked.

I am on a team membership.

I am currently using Adobe Creative Suite CS5.5.

I am on a Mac running Mavericks (OSX 10.9).

Nothing seems to be working and I have been passed from department to department on the support chat window thing.

Someone, for the love of God, please help.

I would like to share with you the solution that worked for me.

This is the step-by-step procedure I followed, guided by Tariq from Adobe's live chat service:

1: Open Activity monitor from spotlight and end all Adobe related processes. You may find processes like AAMupdater, AAMupdater notifier, Adobe Crash demon process.

2: Open a Finder window, select Go>Go to folder option, type in ~/Library and hit enter.

3: Now navigate to Application Support/Adobe/OOBE/.. folder.

4: Delete opm file under OOBE.

5: Rename OOBE to OOBEold.

6: Check if you have AAMupdater in the same location.

7: Please rename it to AAMupdaterold.

8: Click on gear icon on Creative Cloud desktop app and choose Quit Creative Cloud.

9: Then launch it, sign-in and click on Apps tab.

Thanks very much.

I also used the Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to remove all Creative Cloud & CS6 products, then reintalled again. Still not fixed.

This link also did not work as the "opm.db" file does not exist: http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/unknown-server-error-launching-cc.html

I was able to find a file called "pim.db", but im not going to just start delelting things and hope for the best.

Same problem here. Very frustrating! C'mon, Adobe get this fixed.

Your posted solution does not work, as others have pointed out. Re-downloading and re-installing the CC app does not work.

this is how I solve the problem.

I uninstalled the CC applications and used the cleaner tool to remove all files. Additionally I removed all cookies from my browser (I have read i other forums that it might have some influence).

http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/cs5-cleaner-tool-installation-problems.html

So of with a fresh start. All teammembers can work again.

Hope it works for you guys as well.

I managed to solve the problem as well.

I used to cleaner tool to remove all Creative Cloud/Creative Suite that I had on my computer and then reinstalled the Creative Cloud. It all worked fine after that.

Im not sure exactly why this has worked, but once I got rid of everything and reinstalled the Creative Cloud, it worked.

It was really a last gasp solution because if it didnt work I would have had nothing.

Hopefully this helps others, but this really is a problem that Adobe need to fix.

This works for windows as well. Thank you...

The only difference is To delete the opm file, you must close the manager first or windows will not allow you to delete that database file.

The opm file on windows 7 is C:\Users\{USER NAME}\AppData\Local\Adobe\OOBE

I can confirm that both the OOBE and AAMUpdater folders do get recreated.

(This post will be duplicated in my other thread with a link to this one.)

That might work for me too, if I knew what the hell you were talking about. What's an Activity Monitor? and so on.

Thanks MikeBanks & CM_Marketing, very helpful.  I'll add that (on windows) I had to manually end the "AAMupdater notifier" process before I was able to rename opm.db.

FIngers crossed that this does the trick!  Typekit removes my synced fonts *instantly* when signed out, which has made my life miserable today - what a dumb policy...

I'm a bit hesitant to use typekit fonts, for that reason. I had this 'you've been signed out' issue today which made my current files using typekit fonts unusable.

You do have to have hidden files showing in Windows, which is not the default setting. For information on how to do that, visit http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/show-hidden-files-and-folders-in-windows-vista/.

So this is how people work with Adobe? This is the elegant streamlined system for which I'm paying annually? Please get your act together, Adobe engineers. I shouldn't have to be digging around my drive, deleting and/or renaming files in order to simply log in and download the products for which I've already paid an exorbitant amount. Why is this ridiculous error still occurring nearly a year later? Oh, you're right. Keep charging people for the product and worry about the fixes later. Or not at all. I'll jump through hoops to use your product. After all, what choice do I have? Correct. None.
