Hi TowhaTI,

As you have mentioned you are unable to install Creative Cloud desktop app as it fails with an error " Error code 44" and you have also tried few troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue, however the problem persists.

Since this error is permissions related which means you do not have full read and write permissions on certain folder due to which the installer is not able to access that location, I would recommend correcting the permissions on the folders given in the following help document: Preferences folder read-only error | Permissions issue.

After this follow the steps given in "Solution 2" of the following help document to resolve the issue: "Failed to install" error received when installing Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app"​.

Now you may download the Creative Cloud desktop app using the direct download link given here: Download Creative Cloud desktop app.

Let us know if this helps.

Thanks for the update TowhaTI, No we do not need to edit any registry entries. For further troubleshooting I would recommend performing a complete manual cleanup of Adobe from your machine, to do that please refer to the following thread: Reactivation error unresolved after receiving new serial number from Adobe

Note: This will remove everything related to Adobe from your machine.

After this retry the installation by downloading the Creative Cloud desktop app using the direct download link given here: Download Creative Cloud desktop app.

Yes TowhaTI, this will delete everything related to Adobe from your machine. I would recommend proceeding only if you wish to delete all and reinstall it.
