So, I know it is the cool thing for most people. But I cannot stand the vast majority of new features of Creative Cloud.
So I am trying to uninstall CC. But even though I have manually removed every single adobe related app except CS6 and CC , when I try to uninstall CC I get an error, "Couldn't uninstall Creative Cloud for desktop. You still have Creative Cloud applications installed on your computer that require it."
The only adobe programs I have installed are Acrobat Pro X, CC, and CS6 Master Collection. But my CS6 has been renamed into "Creative Suite 6 Master Collection". I know that is what CS6 has always stood for, but up until after I installed CC, it read as CS6, not Creative Suite 6, in my application list.
So how do I remove this annoying auto-launching piece of crap, without screwing up my CS6?
Or, worst case scenario, if I cannot remove it, how do I completely and wholly disable it, so it can never again automatically open itself and pop up on my task bar, or pop up a window/tooltip I never wanted to see?
you should not have manually uninstalled anything. you should use the uninstallers.
reinstall everything you manually uninstalled so you can restore the uninstallers. then properly (using your control panel) uninstall your cc programs including the cc desktop app after everything else is uninstalled.
then clean per Use the Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems and restart your computer.
When I say manually, I meant 'one at a time' - as I wasn't certain which programs were linked to CC. I used poor phrasing there. I did properly uninstall them using the control panel. The creative cloud cleaner tool did the trick. How pathetic is that, that I must download and run a special tool to uninstall an application? One more nail in CC's coffin for me!
