We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Just did the major update last week and saw another update notice this morning. I updated Illustrator and then tried to open it. The interface never shows up. I've tried opening from desktop, creative cloud, and individual files. I've restarted my computer and am now trying to uninstall but the program is running and won't let me uninstall. Running on Windows 10 Pro. Is there a work around for this? I'd like to get back to work.
Cold reboot, then uninstalled AI. Restart. Try to open AI. Fail. Run diagnositics, at launch. Files open, will update further if needed.
So does "files open" mean AI launched for you after the reinstall?
Yes, files open after reinstall. I would restart your PC before you try to install your AI and after you install AI.
I have the same issue. It showed up this morning prior to doing the latest upgrade and afterwards, even with a computer restart. Creative Cloud diagnostics did not help, it failed to launch, too. Photoshop launches OK, though. Win10Pro
I'm having to uninstall my AI and then re-installing it every morning before I can continue working on my projects. I hope there will be a fix coming soon. This is time consuming.
Sorry to hear about this trouble. This is has been reported by a few other users as well, and it was found due to the conflict with Trend Micro Antivirus.
Do you have this Anti-Virus installed on your machine? If yes, please make sure that Illustrator is added as an exception in the app settings. I hope it helps!
Thank you for your reply. My company just installed this on my computer about 2 weeks before the update. I will make the appropriate changes and try the update again.
Can you help me please? I have the same problem and tried every single thing in the book and it doesn't work. I don't have Trend Micro Antivirus (I use Windows Defender and added Illustrator to the exceptions list and disabled the antivirus all together but it didn't work). Illustrator just won't open!
Sorry about the trouble. Could you please share a few more details like:
