Uninstallation of Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop is not happening silently. I am not able to find any silent parameters which can be given to the below executable:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud\Utils\Creative Cloud Uninstaller.exe"
Can you please let me know if there are any silent parameters to be given to uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop application?
Moving this discussion to the Enterprise Deployment for Creative Cloud, Creative Suite forum.
Adobe creative cloud desktop app can't be uninstalled silently if it was installed individually from web. You can create a package for creative cloud desktop app only through creative cloud packager and install using package installer. You can uninstall the desktop app silently this way and can use the command msiexec /x "name of package.msi" /qn
I have tried to build such package. When I install the package I get two uninstall entries in reg:
• one for the package (in the 64Bit Path)
• one for the desktop application (in the 32Bit Path) (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Adobe Creative Cloud)
How do I get silently rid of this part Software?
To say that it "can't" be uninstalled silently if installed from the web is not an acceptable answer.
Your dev team needs to add a silent switch to the creative cloud uninstaller.
I agree with this poster that not allowing for a silent uninstall of any application shows a blatant disregard for other IT professionals.
The earlier posts imply that if the application was downloaded from the web, there was no silent uninstall. If the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop application was installed from within a created package, is there a way to silently uninstall? I need to leave the necessary application(s), just remove the desktop app to prevent to parasitic loss of resources to a completely unnecessary application that does nothing but confuse the end-user.
I installed CC 2017 by creating a package using CC packager.
I even made an uninstall package. However, neither the uninstall package nor the main CC uninstaller uninstall this desktop app. Therefore, the only way to do it is to uninstall it manually, but there is no way to do so silently.
Btw, the app's uninstaller is an exe, not an Msi, therefore the /qn parameter doesn't. Is there any way to do a silent unattended uninstall of this desktop app?
try start /w "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud\Utils\Creative Cloud Uninstaller.exe" -uninstall
This worked beautifully. Thank you !
That's the only solution! Not the one which's marked as "answer"!
that didnt work for me any suggestions?
How to i get it to UNINSTALL AT ALL??? It's complaining that Apps need it - but i just UNINSTALLED ALL THE CC APPS!!! (except Edge, which refuses to uninstall)
This is not correct. I created a package that contained only the desktop application and attempted to remove it using the MSI file with the /qn and nothing happened until I removed the /qn, at which point I was prompted to answer "Do you really want to uninstall the desktop application".
Just use this
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud\Utils\Creative Cloud Uninstaller.exe" -uninstall
