You did remove the preference file/s???
Also how did you remove the CC version app??
I followed all the steps in the link I posted. And I uninstalled CC as a whole along with all the programs since the other necessary ones were expired anyway.
Please just say how you removed the CC version and did you remove the Preferences from Hidden User>Library??
Sorry I'm trying to help but please answer the questions specifically... thanks.
I did answer... I said I uninstalled it and that I followed the steps from the link, which is the exact same one you posted and I've seen posted everywhere, so yes, I removed the preferences as I stated that I did.
Thanks... usually it is best to double check as people don't always follow exactly what the instructions are and skip vital steps.
Now did you move Lightroom CC to the trash to delete it or was it from the CC app? See I have a perpetual License and uninstall is not available in the CC app for me.... just checking the options.
