So yesterday I had moved the user home directory and had set the user home path to new location of the directory on my Mac. However, after setting the new home path the Adobe CC desktop app no longer wants to fully open. Whenever I start the app It hangs for a few minutes before presenting the following error message:
"Adobe Creative Cloud, needed to resolve the problem, is missing or damaged. You can try to repair to fix the issue. If the problem persists, download and install the new copy from 'http://www.adobe.com/go/adobecreativecloudapp'."
The desktop app seems to work fine if I set the user home path back to the old path though. I'm not really sure why that it at this point. For extra info i'm using Mac OS Sierra 10.12.5. Any advice is appreciated.
you should leave your home path alone. or:
change it back to its original name
uninstall everything cc including preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html
then uninstall the cc desktop app, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html
clean your computer of cc files per http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
restart your computer (don't skip this)
change your home path
reinstall the cc desktop app, https://creative.adobe.com/products/creative-cloud.
use the desktop app to install your cc programs/trials
I would except I do it for storage reasons. Thanks but I figured it out on my own. The drive I had moved the the directory to was formatted as ExFat drive. So I moved the directory somewhere safe, formatted the drive as a HFS+ drive, and then moved the home directory back onto the drive I formatted. It works perfectly now.
