        Hi ADB00lr,


        Please follow the below steps:


        1. Uninstall Lightroom and Creative Cloud desktop application if you have installed it by any chance.

        2. Restart your computer and reinstall it

        3. If the develop module is still disabled then please follow the below steps:

        Solution 1:


        Set permission to SLStore & SLCache Folder :


        NOTE: Perform this procedure two times, once each for the SLCache and the SLStore folders.


        • Use the Finder to navigate to Library/Application Support/Adobe/SLStore or Library/Application Support/Adobe/SLStore.
        • Control-click the folder and choose Get Info.
        • Expand the Sharing & Permissions section.
        • Click the lock icon in the lower-right corner. Enter your administrator user name and password when prompted, and then click OK.
        • Set permissions:

        • Click the Gear icon, and select Apply to Enclosed Item. Close the Get Info dialog box.
