We have two client systems when the CC desktop app is clicked on, pops a box with a white background instead of asking for credentials. Prior to yesterday, both installations worked. Reinstalling the app does not resolve the issue. I've considered removing and reinstalling the app, but I am not sure whether the desktop app will affect the installed CC applications and the user's customizations.
Thanks for your imput and attention.
Kindly try to change the network connectivity and confirm if you are still getting the same blank page when opening the creative cloud app. You can use a creative cloud cleaner tool to remove the creative cloud app only and can re-install again.
Here is the link to download the removal tool: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/photoshop-elements/kb/elements-installation-error-CC-cleaner-tool.html#ma...
Use the alternate download link to download the installer: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-desktop-app-download.html#Problemsinst....
Thank you for your input. We see the same error after changing connectivity.
Removed the desktop app with the cc-cleanertool. Restarted computer and installed the cc desktop app.
After installation completes successfully and the desktop app opens, a blue banner is displayed and references error code: 505 (Failed to lower privileges.).
The error code and solutions KB for 505 States to uninstall beyondtrust powerbroker (not installed).
System is up to date.
This was a local installation.
The secondary Logon windows service was not running.
Removed the desktop app with the cc-cleanertool.
Restarted computer. Checked the secondary logon service was running.
Installed the cc desktop app.
After installation completes successfully and the desktop app opens, a blue banner is displayed and references error code: 505 (Failed to lower privileges.). The app continued to work, but was showing red button with a white "!" on the cloud icon in the right hand end of the ribbon. Clicking the update link progresses to 45% then fails with "Sorry we couldn't update the app. Error Code 505."
So I checked the adobe installation log and searched for error code: 505.
From the install log the relevent info:
-------------------------------------- Summary --------------------------------------

Any thougths/ suggestions?
I finally was able to make contact with Support. The technician did the following:
Connected to a hotspot for internet connectivity.
1. Close CCD and run uninstaller
2. Delete folders from below locations-
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe
>> Adobe Creative Cloud
>> Adobe Creative Cloud Experience
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe
>> Adobe Desktop Common
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe
>> Adobe Desktop Common
Adobe Creative Cloud
3. Run installer ACCCx5_0_0_354
Having user test.
Looks like this may be part of the issue:
When user logged in gets "cc desktop needs to be repaired"....
Kindly close all Adobe services from task manager/activity monitor and give read/write permission to Adobe folders. Please find the location of the folder below:
> C: >> Program Files x86 >> Common files >> Adobe
> C: >> Program Files x86 >> Adobe
> C: >> Program Data (hidden folder) >> Adobe
Also, try to connect the machine to an external network and check if you are still getting the prompt.
Found we were missing firewall whitelistings for a couple urls, adding them has resolved this issue for those users who have refreshed their policies.
Done it, didn't help.
Here is the fix for Windows. The problem is with some Internet Explorer setting.
For anyone else having this issue on Windows, where loading a CC application (Premiere, Photoshop, Acrobat, etc) will show a blank white screen popup (which will happen when loading or after entering login credentials), just reset your Internet Explorer settings and the CC apps work again.
Reset your Internet Explorer settings through Tools menu -> Internet Options -> Advanced tab -> Reset Internet Explorer settings section and press the "Reset..." button.
Tried this and didn't help.
Any other ideas? When I pull up Creative Cloud desktop I just get a white screen.
There is no relable fix. Its been happening for years but Adobe always blames it on something else. But somehow this is the only program I have ever had that has had this problem for years. Why Adobe will not take reponsabily for the issue is beyound me. Its always just resinstall after it happens. Why do I need to reinstall after every time I star my PC?
Did you try this? Reset your Internet Explorer settings through Tools menu -> Internet Options -> Advanced tab -> Reset Internet Explorer settings section and press the "Reset..." button. It worked for me.
It worked! Thank you so much!
I'll second it that this has to do with IE. I uninstalled IE and Edge, and the white screen was immediatly corrected. Thanks!
