try brute force using direct download = swupdl.adobe.com/updates/oobe/aam20/win/PhotoshopCameraRaw8-8.0/8.5.50/setup.zip
Good try.....but camera raw is still 8.0 after using your file.
try even more brutal force like directly replacing existing "Camera Raw.8bi" with the content of \payloads\AdobeCameraRaw8.0All-x64-050614143245\Assets1_1.zip (from direct download archive) for x64 (rename it, backup old .8bi first) .. the same for x32 from \payloads\AdobeCameraRaw8.0All-050614141453
PS: but first research your system - where do you have Camera Raw.8bi files (dates/sizes)
Thank you, it worked!!
In Photoshop Community, EEGI answering Tee Wayne (Can't get latest version of Camera Raw...) is using the same brutal force than you!!!
My Camera Raw is finally updated to version 8.5.
I already answered you through the camera raw community forum.
Thank you again, no more problems with CC 2014.

Please provide a screenshot from Ps->Help->Update->Preferences. Please ensure Camera Raw entries are present here.
This ensure your updates application.
If it is not present then you need to re-install PS CC 2014 It would be listed in Previous Version section. (http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/install-apps.html)
The problem was resolved by replacing the two “Camera Raw.8bi” files.
Attached is the screenshot of Update-Preferences, Camera Raw is present.
Thank you for the follow-up.
I upgraded to PsCC 2014 and Lr5 CC yesterday. Lr5.5 installed correctly but PsCC 2014 still is using ACR 8.0. Help, Update yields a dialogue for updating to 8.5. I ran it and then checked the version (help, about plugin, ACR) Still ACR 8.0
Help does not yield ps, help, update, preferences. I did check Edit Preferences Camera Raw which resulted in a return of Camera Raw 8.0.
I assume that PsCC 2014 is still running 8.0 despite the update.
> then you need to uninstall and re-install
that's why we like tech support...
So what does Adobe recommend we do if the Application Manager does show Photoshop Camera Raw 8 as in the screenshot someone posted but ACR 8.0 is still the current loaded version?
Re-installing has not worked, repeatedly. Running the 8.5 setup.exe doesn't work. My PsCC 2014 remains stubbornly set at ACR 8.0. Lr5 is fine, at 8.5. There are numerous questions about this - clearly quite a few people are in this bind. I am reluctant to handbomb the thing as outlined above, fearing that the next ACR upgrade will not work (someone somewhere was mentioning this ...)
Does Adobe have a solution yet? It has been quite a few days.
Having gotten no response from Adobe, I started looking through my directory files and found that CS6 64 bit had a "Camera Raw.8bi" dated in June 2014, but CC 64 bit had one dated April 2013. Seems I had missed several updates since I run in 64 bit mode. I just copied the newer one in CS6 (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CS6\File Formats\Camera Raw.8bi) to CC (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CC\File Formats\Camera Raw.8bi.
Make sure to rename or move the old version before copying the new one. You can then at least revert back to the old one if you have a problem. Obviously, this also means you have to have CS6 loaded on your computer.
I'm going to have to do this I guess John. I can't say I'm thrilled about it - but the photos are piling up waiting for me to figure it out and I'm sick of listening to them b**ch.
I hope it works as easily for you as it did for me. It's a 30 second fix once your find the right folders. Of course if you don't have CS6, or the camera raw.8bi in that folder also has an old date, guess you'd have to try to download camera raw directly and then find the file in the download.
John, is the camera raw file for Lr5 the same as it should be for PsCC 2014, do you know?
Sorry, I don't know for sure. However, since it is in the "Common Files" and all my problems went away, I'm guessing that the answer is likely to be "yes". How's that for waffling?
I have a very similar problem. On https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1503755 I described the situation. I think it is not enough to replace the Camera Raw.8bi because you need to update also Camera Profile and Lens Profile to version 8.5.
Lightroom 5.5 has the Camera Raw 8.5 engine built in so does not use the PS Camera Raw plug-in file; however, if your PS/ACR plug-in is an older version, then when you do an Edit In, LR will complain that it needs upgraded, so that the versions are in sync.
You can do a Help / About LR in LR to see what version of PS plug-in it is compatible with.
The lens and camera profiles go to a common place, so if your 32-bit install worked, then they are already updated.
If you feel you need to install them, anyway, then you can always install the DNG Converter 8.5 which also installs all the lens and camera profiles to the same shared location.
I think I'm going to wait until Adobe fixes their problem. I really don't feel like hand installing software.
Please follow the below mentioned steps to resolve the issue:
- Quit and Relaunch CC app
- Open the Adobe Creative Cloud application.
- Mac OS: Go to the Applications folder and open the Adobe Creative Cloud alias.
- Windows 7: Go to Start > All Programs > Adobe Creative Cloud
- Windows 8: Open the Adobe Creative Cloud application from the Start Screen.
- Click the Apps tab in the Adobe Creative Cloud applications.
- Click on All Apps, then Previous Version
- Your installed CC Product would be listed, Click on Install Drop-down and then select the CC 2014 to install.
- After Successful Installation, Update your Product
Let me know if you are still not able to Update ACR.
