Windows 7 64 bit computer. Creative cloud informs me of updates, but on launch nothing appears but a blank window. Header creative cloud and the gear appear. The only options listed with the gear are; help, pin to window area, and quit creative cloud. Removing creative cloud and re-installing fails to fix the problem of a blank window. Cannot update any product using creative cloud, cannot see any thing in cloud window. No way to sign in or out, just quit. Problem for three days now and no support available to fix problem. This means paying for subscription, but not getting access or updates at this point. I feel a bit cheated paying for something, I am not getting!
Please follow the steps mentioned below
WIN 7 and 8 (64 bit):
WIN 7 and 8 (32 bit):
Windows 7 OOBE is located: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Adobe\OOBE - and don't you rename the opm.db?
I could not find anything in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe
what windows operating system do you have? I'm trying to put it all together, if you don't mind helping me out
this worked! - delete OOBE in appdata and reinstall - yaaayyy!! thank you
I have the same problem since yesterday (Creative Cloud worked fine so far). I executed the above steps. But no effect. what now? Please help.
Ok I found it. Apparently two OOBE folders need to be removed C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Adobe\OOBE and C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE and CC reinstalled
Thank you SO mutch! It worked!
There's no OOBE folder in the said location. Also it's impossible to uninstall or reinstall the application, as the process crashes. Win 8.1 64, Creative cloud didn't work even once (black inactive screen only).
This worked perfectly, thank you!
Hi. I got the same problem on a mac
I had to uninstall CC desktop and install it again. Deleting or changing name for OOBE didn't work.
I have Windows 7 Premium.
I've tried all the following in the previous posts to no avail, except for creating new windows account. New account was the only way for it to work and I did not want that.
I finally figured out the root of all evil. The ampersand in Windows user folder name (not the Windows displayed user name).
If you have ampersand (&) or other non-alphabet characters in windows user folder name (Example: C:\Users\Bob & Mary), then Flash Builder will fail to install (happened to me), Creative Cloud will display white screen, and/or other miscellaneous problems.
I confirmed this to be true and works:
1) I had blank Creative Cloud window as shown in the first post.
2) I renamed the display username and window user folder name by doing the instructions here:
(Example: Change from "Bob & Mary" to "Bob n Mary" - without the quotes)
3) After logging back in my newly renamed account, I opened Creative Cloud and login interface shows up! 🙂
Thanks! It was a bit complicated and I had to log into the new account in safe mode before it let me change the user folder name, but the Ghacks.net instructions were excellent (and be sure to read all the comments as there are a few helpful tips there too). When I went back into my regular user account that I had changed the name of, and opened the Creative Suite window, voila, it was no longer blank and I was able to download the program I wanted! Thanks so much IrishMerlin! Your research has hopefully helped many. It sure helped me!!!!
Weird computer glitches = time wasters. Arghhh...
So I was having this same issue, and nothing on the forum was working. Ended up talking with customer support and they were able to give me specific instructions similar to the first response on this post, but different, and worked for me... below is relayed to the best of my memory and was on Win7 Pro.
1. Close all adobe programs.
2. Open windows task manager (ctrl + alt+ Delete)
3. Select the processes tab.
4. End all adobe related processes(including "creative cloud" processes)
5. (windows key + R) to open the run prompt window.
6. type or copy/paste "%localappdata%" (without quotations) into the window and select "OK"
7. Navigate to ADOBE>OOBE
8. select and delete the "opm" file
9. Reopen the creative cloud app.
That process worked for me, hope it works for you as well.
Thank you barnaby20 !!! That actually worked!!!!!
(I was about to give and kill myself)
