This is very Common error with the Adobe Creative Cloud application.
If you have already have Download Adobe Creative Cloud application you can use Download Center : Adobe Creative Cloud for your Product Download.
You can also try this with your application if you are not a trail version user.
1. Launch the Adobe Application/ Creative Cloud application manager.
2. Click the gear icon in the upper-right corner and select Preferences.
3. In the Preferences menu, under General, click the Account tab.
4. Click Sign Out from Creative Cloud.
5. When prompted, sign in with your Adobe ID (usually your email address) and password.
Once You are done the application may ask you for update, Please let the application update Completely.
Note: Please Close all the other Adobe application before you Proceed.
All the Best.
I also faced the same problem as Jeff's. Tried your solution, but it did not work. I have still 26 days left of my trial. The App tab shows: Illustrator CC(2014) with green tick and Up to date. I have successfully worked on CC two days back, but I Quit it. Now when I signed out and signed it again after restart of comp, it doesn't work. Pl. help!
Shalabh please see CC desktop lists applications as "Up to Date" when not installed - http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/aam-lists-removed-apps-date.html for information on how to reinstall Illustrator CC 2014.
I have the same problems. I have tried everything and still nothing works. I get folders, questuions and a lot I really do know nothing about. I just want a software running and After I started online, I have nothing but problems. I have now tried in 2 weeks and still nothing works.
I will leace creatice cloud soon - also because of the obviously missing help - and the help I get is wrong. This is backwards for Adobe and forwrad for nwe and simple software. We will change to other software soon.
We find it very very very strange that we shall pay so much money and get so little help.
Once a smart man said KEEP IT SIMPLE, and I rember once a Adone CEO telling the same. Have Adobe forgot we want it easy.
European Mannuquins I am sorry you are facing difficulties utilizing your Creative Cloud Membership. What specific errors are you experiencing?
I have a lot of problems. First og all the system will not accept my account and even I have downloaded CPLauncher and can see the software, I will not genereate password. Nothing works, and if do not, I have to stop paying, because my boss are a little angry.
He says: We pay and it do not work. Find other software. We can’t afford you sitting doing nothing. If Adobe makes such a software that causes us trouble, we will change to something else, we do not need Aobe for our projects.
So Jeff – The software are very complicated, it can run, It can’t genereate license, and on top of all this, I have to defend Adobe. Well – I will not. I have been fighting in 3 weeks and this week is the last. Monday morning I will stop using Adobe coud and stop my membership.
