I just got my membership so I tried to download my first application (Photoshop CC). When I clicked the 'Download' button it downloaded not the program I expected for but a small application called "CreativeCloudSet-Up" (seems to be some kind of proprietary download manager), am I right?.
Anyway, when it finished I ran it so a progress bar started to fill in, so I supposed that it was downloading my application (PS CC). When the bar finished fill up, the following message appear:
"The following problems were found: administrator privileges are required to proceed installation."*
(*) The message show up in portuguese as I am in Brazil, so the wording may not be exactly like this.
My initial joy on become an Adobe Creative Cloud member quickly turned into a enormous frustration...
Anyway, I am the only user of the computer (a brand new laptop running OEM Windows 8), so I cannot see in what manner I don't have administrator rights.
right click that creativecloudset-up file and click "run as administrator".
Thanks KGlad, I think that it would help. It just worked misteriously in my second attempt though, and now the Cloud manager is downloading my apps.
great. i hope all goes smoothly for you from here.
