Welcome back boys were back in crash land. Creative cloud forces you to update without a way around it so I updated :(. Of course Premiere crashing now on Lumetri color when using HSL secondary selector tool. My PC locks up and I have to hard reset while holding power button down for 3 seconds. I updated premiere after this...Same thing still happening. I hate updating because everytime I update something breaks. PLease give the option to not update.
No, the Creative Cloud desktop app does not make you update. You have the control of that in the CC app preferences.
The 3-bar menu upper left, File/Preferences, and turn off auto-update and turn on show older apps.
And that is an event normally due to something wrong 'locally', on your computer. Try trashing preferences ... there's information on that and basic trouble shooting in their help and on this forum.
I have had auto update off. When I started creative cloud a splash screen came up saying i needed to update, there was no skip button. The only two options it gave me was "update now" or I could close the screen and not bypass it. So I would launch premiere directly without creative cloud. But this made me have to search for my programs in the start menu everytime i needed to switch to photoshop, or After effects. I know where auto update is, it was turned off. This was a new splash screen upon opening creative cloud and there was no option to not update.
I never use CC desktop to open Premiere. Don't even open it.
Have all program thumbnails in the Taskbar.
I get that you have a specific way of doing your tasks. And I thank you for taking the time to present me with another option. That is however how I do my buisness, and my routine changing led me to this. Just letting you know CC forces you to update, so if anyone else experiences this they now have a place to see they arent alone.
No, the CC app does not force you to update the apps. Like Premiere. The CC desktop app only needs to keep the current version of the CC app itself installed.
But that has no bearing on either launching or working in the "working" apps like Premiere.
I have back through CC 2019 apps installed on my current main rig. My previous (now secondary) editing computer has back through 2015 CC apps loaded on it.
The CC app has a default behavior to keep the other apps updated. But all users can turn that default off. And I think, should.
Go to File/Preferences, and deselect keeping all apps updated.
Oh, and turn on show older apps. As then you can always install previous builds of the current version, and at least one build of the previous version.
And I have a couple of them in the Windows task-bar for one-click launch, the others I've their icons on the desktop, and I launch them from those.
I never use the CC app to launch the "work" apps.
It didnt force me to update the apps. It forced me to update creative cloud before it would let me get into accessing my apps.
Which is fine. And your preferences should be sticky update through update, though occasionally that fricks on us. So I do check the CC app's preferences from time to time.
But the CC desktop app is only the access to installing new apps and 'certifying' current apps, really.

Hmmm... I got a feeling you going to have to change that, why do something that's not beneficial. Don't use the CC App to open your software. Create desktop icons. l keep all mine on top on the very top row of my monitor, and don't run any programs in full (32") screen. Thus I can always see the tops of my icons and can click them whenever. Like other experienced users have said to you, use the cc app for installing the software and updates, fonts, etc... but not as a menu system.
