Have the same issue (see my post a few minutes after yours). If you find out something, I'd appreciate a lot if you post it here ...
OK - this Chat Agent (Tanvi A) used the brute force method and downloaded a 57mb zipped file that contained Camera Raw 126.96.36.199. Then unzipped it and copied it over the existing version in Common Files, plug-ins for both the x86 & 64bit folders. She did not give me the link so that I can share with the forum. The zipfile name is camera+raw+8.5.zip . When unzipped - there are two versions, one is inside an x86 folder and the other is not. Two different files that go into the appropriate folder?? We did 'share screen' so it was difficult for me to capture everything she did. I actually thought she overlaid the first copy with the second file but it seems to be working.
Full folder location (I'm running Win 8.1) c:/Program Files (x86)/Common/Adobe/Plug-ins/CC/File Formats/CameraRaw.8bi
The actual file name is CameraRaw.8bi and appears to be the same NAME as the previous version because she overwrote the file.
My concern still is the Creative Cloud application did not detect the out of date CR version and automatically update it with last nights PS CC 2014 updates. What happens on the next update?
OK, that did it for me as well.
Download link for Windows is http://swupdl.adobe.com/updates/oobe/aam20/win/PhotoshopCameraRaw8-8.0/8.5.50/setup.zip
The Installer didn't work, so I unzipped the file. You can find the Camera Raw plugins in the sub-directories:
- > payloads/AdobeCameraRaw8.0All-050614141453/Assets1_1.zip
extract file "1003" and rename it to "Camera Raw.8bi"
copy it to c:/Program Files (x86)/Common/Adobe/Plug-ins/CC/File Formats/CameraRaw.8bi (previous CameraRaw is overwritten, you should copy old version to a save place first)
- > payloads/AdobeCameraRaw8.0All-x64-050614143245/Assets1_1.zip
extract file "1002" and rename it to "Camera Raw.8bi"
copy it to c:/Program Files/Common/Adobe/Plug-ins/CC/File Formats/CameraRaw.8bi (previous CameraRaw is overwritten, you should copy old version to a save place first)
Start Photoshop CC and open a RAW file to be sure it's ok now.
Thank you Eggi, it worked!!
