I'm with you David. All these updaters are not making for an easy time managing the apps like they should. I'd be curious to know if you found out how to install the latest Camera Raw for Photoshop CC when it's not showing up in the updater.
No. That's not what Adobe is about.
Adobe does not see me as a client who deserves a quality product experiece.
They only see my credit card on file which they masterfully bill, two accounts, right on time like clockwork.
... how to install the latest Camera Raw for Photoshop CC when it's not showing up in the updater.
Have you tried manually downloading the update? See this link, and be sure to download the cc version (not cs6).
Yes. Numerous times. On two different machines. It always delivers "update cannot be applied" msg.
Believe me, I have spent hours on this forum looking for a clue; it's a common problem. Yesterday, I deinstalled and reinstalled both Bridge CC and Photoshop CC, for the umpteenth time. This time I also manually deleted all Camera Raw files/folders I could find -- because deinstallers and the much-touted Cleaner app leave Camera Raw in place. (Camera Raw stuff is scattered all over.)
Bridge and Phtotoshop installed nothing concerning Camera Raw. Opening a raw file resulted in the "can't read this format" error msg.
Many thanks to Michelle, who steered me through a back-door ACR installation. Three things:
1. It was a simple fix.
2. If this fix is documented elsewhere I never located it. At least it'll be documented here.
3. Michelle assured me that ACR updater problems are being addressed.
The fix: she supplied me with the latest ACR plug-in, which lives in the main (not user) Library -> Plug-ins folder. Of course, ACR also installs oodles of files hither and yon. I was concerned about breaking ACR, or at least having it fail to function properly. So here's a pleasant surprise: Adobe DNG Converter installs the same lens & camera profiles etc. that ACR uses.
In short, to manually install ACR:
-- copy the latest CameraRaw.plugin to the Library -> Plugins folder.
-- install the latest DNG Converter.
Where to get the CameraRaw.plugin file? As I documented earlier, even the separate ACR installer pkg refused to run on both my MacPro and MacBook Pro. The file can be unzipped from within the "payloads" folder of the ACR installer pkg.
