How can I uninstall all Adobe Creative Cloud applications silently on a Mac?   I've followed the instructions here and it still prompts me with a dialogue box.

Use the CC Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems | CC, CS3-CS6

Step 6 says the following but it still prompts the user... plus is doesn't indicate that quotes are used:

  1. In a Terminal window, type the following command:
    sudo [Path to Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool.app]/Contents/MacOS/Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool ‐‐removeAll= CREATIVECLOUDCS6PRODUCTS

Hi ,

On Mac OS, use the following command:

sudo installer -pkg <uninstall_pkg_name> -target /

When the uninstall is finished, check the install location to see that the applications were removed.

Note: Uninstall packages are not created for update package.

This still doesn't work. The command:

/Adobe\ Creative\ Cloud\ Cleaner\ Tool.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Creative\ Cloud\ Cleaner\ Tool ‐‐removeAll= CREATIVECLOUDCS6PRODUCTS

just starts the Cleaner app. This is pointless when trying to silently uninstall CC. The link to the moved discussion is broken as well.

The following worked for me.  No prompt and no user interaction.

sudo /Adobe\ Creative\ Cloud\ Cleaner\ Tool.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Creative\ Cloud\ Cleaner\ Tool --removeAll=All

or

sudo [Path to Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool.app]/Contents/MacOS/Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool --removeAll=All

The problem I found was copy/pasting the command from this site into the terminal, the two dashes/minus/hyphens "--" between 'Tool'  and 'removeAll=All' were not the same as what was naturally type in the terminal.  When I replaced them and changed to '=All' it worked.

Hope this helps!

Cheers

It works! But, only removes the apps and leaves lots of Adobe junk behind.

For one reason or another my fix doesn't appear to be showing 

(and I have no idea why Adobe hasn't documented it).  Add --eulaAccepted=1 to the command and it appears to skip the GUI entirely.  In my case, I put it before the removeAll section so my command looks something like the following:

 

sudo /Volumes/CleanerTool/Adobe\ Creative\ Cloud\ Cleaner\ Tool.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Creative\ Cloud\ Cleaner\ Tool --eulaAccepted=1 --removeAll=ALL
