Block startup of Creative Cloud (Server 2012)

Hi all,

We are running a remote-desktop farm of around 50 users, only around 4 of these are using DC pro.

When each user sign's in, an instance of creative cloud and 'Adobe CEF Helper' is starting up (totalling to 50 instances of each).

Because we are running a remote-desktop farm, typical functionality such as msconfig -> startup items is NOT available (or such as in windows 10, going into task manager and clicking the startup tab is not available either).

I have also tried going into shell:startup and trying to find a startup folder in \programdata, but to no avail.

Is there a registry setting of value 1/0 that can be amended to allow/prevent this startup when a user logs in? Otherwise, I can only see setting up a group policy specifically for the DC Pro users to allow the program to run and block it for all other users (which seems a bit overkill.. hopefully there's functionality to manage this from IT perspective). Having each user sign-in and select the 'no not startup' is not an option.. because not all users have a sign-in to even select this option.

Any advice greatly appreciated,

Thanks

BTW   Creative Cloud on any virtualization isn't supported.   If you are only installing Acrobat from the Creative Cloud then use the standalone downloads for Acrobat Subscription or VIP.

Are you installing Acrobat via a Creative Cloud Package?!

Which Licensing model are you using?
