install the creative cloud desktop app on your windows partition and use it to install your adobe programs.
We've tried it both ways - install on PC and try to transfer to Mac, and vice versa. We regularly lose access to the online Adobe account on both sides and have been trying for months to try to fix this to no avail. At this point we've virtually given up - sadly if you read online you will see that many others have this issue and we have continued to try many steps, including the one you suggest here, with no long-term success. The program will load, start to work, and then will have an authorization error that prevents us from continuing to use it or to access projects we've started. We suspect that this is something Adobe needs to repair in their user access system we believe... after months of spending literally dozens and dozens of hours trying so many different installation configurations.
i don't know what you mean by "both ways" but there's no one that knows what they're talking about recommends transferring (or migrating etc) adobe programs.
if you want adobe on both mac and windows partitions on the same computer, that may not be possible. but, if it is possible, you would:
1. install the win cc desktop app on the win partition and use it to install your win partition programs
2. install the mac cc desktop app on the mac partition and use it to install your mac partition programs
Thanks again for your reply. We did exactly this, but several errors occurred, one after the other, through which we tried to trouble-shoot. It's been so long since we gave up, but here is what I remember:
Honestly, there were literally dozens of other steps, but this is a "quick" summary from what I remember. Long story short: it is likely impossible to have it on both sides of the partition, but we don't know why and wish there was someone from Adobe who could clear it up (or at least clarify/explain officially) as we have a user license that should authorize 2 "devices" and hoped to use our two partition sides to this end. Cheers.
(Info for others reading this question: It does not concern Creative Suite, but is about the Creative Cloud app).
