    Using CC cleaner tool

    HarryPutnam Community Member

      Can anyone who has used the CC cleaner tool recently tell me what the User Interface looks like?

       

      I saw a screen grab from a 2012 post showing it in action... it appeared to have a Graphica User Interface.  But when I run the lastest version just now it appears to be a dos box where I type in reponse to prompts.

            Thanks for the helpful input.

             

            I downloaded from there before posting... that is the one I'm talking about.  That was a few hrs ago.

            So, to be sure I went to the link you provided and downloaded it again, unzipped and ran it.

             

            Its the same... Completely usable, but it is NOT a graphical interface.

            It's a dos box that you type into as prompts show up.  The screen grab is after I've already typed answers to a few prompts... What you see is answer to last prompt I typed in '3' which is listing the remaining CS6 and including CC stuff.

              Harry,

              This is the interface you have on Windows machine however you will get graphical interface for Creative Cloud Cleaner for Mac OSX.

                Ahh, ok... I had no trouble running it, but since I have had plenty of trouble since the big update... I wanted to make sure I wasn't getting something wrong.

                 

                And at heavy risk of ending the thread in RPG and .60 caliber machine gun fire, I see the Graphical workers built in bias for Mac showing itself.

                Truth to tell, I've often been nearly swayed by the comparisons...

                 

                And really more swayed by being a cheapskate and getting cheaper pc stuff.

                 

                Do you find that a Mac handles the newest stuff well?  And is there really a palpable difference in results using a Mac?

                 

                Is memory allotment handled better by mac so that a pc needs more ram than a similar cpu with mac?
