I updated my computer to Windows 8 last night/this morning and erased all of my apps. Everytime I try to start the Adobe Application Manager, I get "Download error. Press retry to try again or contact customer support. (403)"
Is this a common error with an awesome fix?
Started receiving same error this morning...haven't changed a thing on my computer. I'll download and install full version of AAM and see if problem is resolved. This same error started without any changes to my Windows 7 Ultimate pc.
I can get online and do everything I was doing yesterday in regards to being on the Internet, so I don't think that's the problem.
I am currently getting around this little issue by installing each product (Photoshop, Premiere Pro, etc) individually, with Adobe's Download Assistant. Photoshop finished and was working perfectly (aside from video driver problems, but that's Win8, not Adobe). I will update again when everything's finished and I perform a restart.
Just got off phone with Adobe tech support...they are aware of the problem and hope to have it fixed very soon. I assumed the problem was at their end cuz all my network connections and firewall settings are correct.
We are still investigating the 403 error. Please try the solutions currently listed in Download error 403 launching AAM | CCM - http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/download-error-403-launching- aam.html.
