Are you using windows or mac.
What exactly are you doing and seeing??
Yes the App Manager is required for Lr6 I believe...
The task tray icon is visible all the time, even when LR6 is not running. I like to switch off all processes that aren't required, especially updaters, and more especially ones that give you no obvious way to switch off...
Right-click on the Taskbar
Select Task Manager
Select the Startup Tab
Select the 'Adobe Updater Startup Utility'
Select the Disable button on the bottom right
Remember now you wont get automatic update messages, you will need to check manually using the Help -> Updates...
This is correct, but, there is still a process running in the background, Adobe Update Service, seems like they don't want us not to have their software running on our systems!
I was under the impression I had downloaded an Lr 6 non CC trial version, and when I "tried" it, surprise, it was Lr 6 CC, bundled with AAM, IPCBroker, AASlapp, and all the other supposedly non-spyware spyware(s) included with all of Adobe's CC products. I tracked the "malware" down in Finder and manually removed each folder. So, to the trash they all went, but what do you know, now I'm having a hard time emptying the trash. Finally with the trash emptied, I boot CS6 and Br, and I am now reminded that Adobe Application Manager, required to verify my license, is missing or damaged, and in Br, it is instructing me to reinstall the application.
Before my inadvertent curiosity mistake of downloading Lr6 (unwanted CC), I had no such problems.
My applications are not completely paralyzed yet but I can't even manually download any updates...
Any Adobe staff guys out there with an explanation?
LR6 and LR CC-2015 are the same program and it merely shows or hides features depending on the local licensing environment. The various Adobe programs you felt need to rid your computer of are necessary to check your license and convert the LR CC functionality to LR6 if that’s what you’ve paid for as well as verify that you are only using 2 licensed copies of either the serial-number-licensed or the AdobeID-signin-licensed program.
LR5-serial-licensed and LR5-CC-licensed where distinct programs and you could install LR5-serial any number of times. License-validation is more robust with LR6/2015.
So, now that I have uninstalled Lr6 and the Adobe software out of the computers, why is CS6 instructing me to download Adobe Application Manager, required to verify my license. Was this software installed on my computers prior to the inadvertent Lr6 download incident?
