    How do I download just the CC app?


      I'm trying to install my CC software on a new computer and its all changed. I tried just downloading LR but that's not like the usual web download and I can't tell what percentage done it is or where it is putting the file. Augh.

          I went through this and as best I can tell I AM following the steps. Basically I'm trying to download LR. My understanding is that the first thing it will do is download the CC app itself and then the rest flows from there. BUT the problem is that all I have is a web page indicating the LR is downloading now.  And it's been that way for hours. I'm not in a remote location with a dial up modem, I am on high speed internet. Yet it is still downloading now. It does not tell me if it is 2% done or 98% done it just says "downloading" now. It's not putting anything into my Downloads directory so again I have no idea what's going on. Periodically I refresh the screen in case it will update its message. Or maybe I am RE-initiating the download. I have NO IDEA. Is there something actually happening here? Is there any way to tell where I am in this process? It is INCREDIBLY frustrating compared with the old way of doing things which I have used and understood for ages.

            After much head banging and searching I got to this page: Troubleshoot download and install issues which hinted that perhaps the problem was with Adobe Application Manager (AAM) and that I should disable it. I did this and voila it actually downloaded and let me run the Creative Cloud desktop app installer. Quite quickly too. What a pain!

              Well yes I downloaded it then I got "error code:50" when trying to install. Look though I would I never found a place where I could find out how to fix this. So I got on live chat and worked through the process and finally got it to install. Here is the edited transcript:
