I am currently having the same problem on trying to install an update. I tried uninstalling the creative cloud desktop and reinstalled with no joy still the same
Running windows 8.1
Hello Dan Mavric,
You have to enter your Mac account user name and your Mac account password.
The window popping up like this one is a administrator access confirmation from Apple and not from Adobe.
That has worked. I mistakenly thought I had to log into the Adobe CC once again.
Could you please give me more details and a screenshot of the issue?
Do you have any error message?
The issue above is only Mac related as the issue resolution.
Glad I could help.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
This popup is a problem after rebooting the Mac it keeps popping up.
I have to do this for every machine currently on our network every morning since some recent updates.
Please fix it
The current problem posted by Dan Mavric is linked only to the Mac OS as it requires you to enter your Administrator access to modify the information in the Mac OS.
There is no issue with Adobe as it is a Mac window and you have to enter your Mac account user name and password.
I am affraid you are quite wrong here.
Yes it is a Mac pop up that is caused by Adobe Creative Cloud after recent updates.
The Mac is not going to throw up this authentication out of spite it is due to some part of the Creative Cloud app requesting persmission.
We have used CC since it first released and only in recent days has this occured on all 21+ machines at the same time.
If you Authenticate and all apps are up to date then reboot the request will pop up again.
I have emails from every user every morning reminding me to authenticate it !!
If the Mac pops up a window that requires you to enter the Administrator user name and password that would mean the Users have not the full access and are restricted.
As you mentioned it, if the Users remind you to authorize the access that means they don't have the full rights and they should have administrator access.
I would also invite you to please try with a local user account instead of a network account to see if the issue still remains, the issue can also coming from the Network preferences.
When we deployed CC the option to only allow Administrators to update was used.
This worked flawlessley for what ... over a year!
Seems this problems related to some leftovers from an update
Yet to be responsed to by Adobe.
We are not about to modify all users to have full admin account access and have not needed to until this problem
occured. This is a major pain for us.
Normally we authenticate when an update is needed, This popup is currently happening on all machine when they are all 100% updated. That is the issue.
Please take a few minutes to read the thread above that sheds some light on the possible cause.
Most of our Adobe Creative software will function fine in a standard user account. If a standard user account is not currently working under your current configuration then I would recommend working with your I.T. (might be you) to revert back to the default standard user configuration.
I would invite you to please try with a local user account, like I mentioned it previously as you are on a network, the issue also might comes from the network preferences and by trying under a local user account you will may not see the issue occuring.
"Most of our Adobe Creative software will function fine in a standard user account. If a standard user account is not currently working under your current configuration then I would recommend working with your I.T. (might be you) to revert back to the default standard user configuration."
Please do not be so unwilling to understand there is a problem that has recently occured with your software...
I am not going to allow users to use apply udates in a standard user configuration as I test updates before allowing them to be applied as history has shown with Adobe sometimes they get things badly wrong... i.e.The time saving to network shares trashed the documents people worked on.
We have used standard accounts for 12 Months as per that thread posted other users have also experienced this 'Recent' problem.
It is not related to 'Network preferences' I can assure you.
Can you please pass this on to somebody technical for a real look into the cause or atleast work with me to rectify.
"I would also invite you to please try with a local user account instead of a network account to see if the issue still remains, the issue can also coming from the Network preferences"
- All users are on standard user account not a network account.
In that thread I posted the last section not replied to is very informative.. This indicates Adobe software is throwing up a priviledge issue on boot up that has not occured in the past.
As you can see, there are lots of crashes of a process called ExManEscalatedPrivilegeServer, whose crash reports tell me that its parent process is Creative Cloud Helper:
Process: ExManEscalatedPrivilegeServer 
Path: /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Creative Cloud/*/ExManEscalatedPrivilegeServer
Version: 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168)
Code Type: X86-64 (Native)
Parent Process: Creative Cloud Helper 
and also lots of repeated references to Adobe Extension Manager .mxi files in the folder /Library/Application Support/Adobe/InDesign/Version 9.0/en_US/Extensions/REMOVED_CC/, which I'm guessing are components of InDesign replaced by the latest InDesign CC updater.
I don't really know what any of this means, other than I see it happening every time I've opened Console after I've booted up and Creative Cloud requests my password, and repeated references to ExManEscalatedPrivilegeServer and old pieces of InDesign tucked away in the /Library/Application Support/Adobe/InDesign/Version 9.0/en_US/Extensions/REMOVED_CC/ folder.
