I understand that you are facing issues with your Adobe apps installation.
As you mentioned above, the error "Adobe creative cloud is needed to resolve this problem. However it is missing or damaged. please download and install a new copy of the creative cloud from [adobe website link]" . Please try the links below.
Please let me know if this works or if any further assistance is required. Thanks!
Thank you for the response, unfortunately neither of those links helped me at all. I tried the steps/solutions in both of them, I'm still receiving the same error.
My apologies for the inconvenience caused. I would suggest you to check your machine's compatibility with CC 2017 version apps.
If this is fine then please check if your Adobe folders have complete Read and Write permissions.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe
Also make sure that there is no Adobe entries in host file. If there are any Adobe entries then delete them.
You will find Host file here: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
My PC should be compatible.
I have made sure read/write permissions are on both those folder locations, and no Adobe entries appear to be in my host files.
I ran through the uninstaller and cleaner and tried to re-install Creative Cloud. It gave me the same error.
It appears I am unable to completely clean Adobe CC from my machine and I urgently need it working. I'm just about ready to fresh install my entire OS at this point if nothing else works.
