I understand that you are facing issues with your Creative Cloud apps and so you want to uninstall everything and start over. Please refer the below links for this.
Please let me know if any further assistance is required. Thanks!
I've been at this now for over 2-hours. I've deleted EVERYTHING Adobe. I
reinstalled Creative Cloud and signed in. Here's what CC Cleaner shows:
When I try to install Captivate I almost immediately get this dialog:
I've tried installing by double-clicking the install icon. I've tried
installing by opening the package and running the MacOS version from
Terminal as the image above shows.
I've rebooted. I've deleted Creative Cloud. I've re-installed. I've
cleaned. I have a late 2013 Macbook Pro with 16 GB of RAM and 42 GB of SSD
space running the latest version of Sierra 10.12.3
What am I missing? This shouldn't be so difficult.

42 GBs of free space is a very small amount. Move, delete, or otherwise create a larger chunk of free space on your drive and test.
I've deleted some files and show memory of 49.9 GB of SSD space. It's a 7.5 GB install requirement. I try re-installing and still immediately get the error message.
Is there a log file somewhere so somebody can see what's going on and where it's crashing?
First thing to check is the permissions on your drive and the folder/s Adobe is trying to use for the install.
This is a common problem with Mac OS X. Apple makes the permissions a moving target from release to release of OS X. Even in minor updates to the same OS X version, IE a Point Release like from 10.12.2 to 10.12.3.

kglad, Sierra has been out for 5-months now. It's not compatible? My friend has a new MacBook with the touchbar. Surely he's running the latest OS. And he's running Captivate along with the rest of Creative Suite.
Adobe, Captivate isn't compatible with Sierra and new MacBooks?
correct. i posted the link for you in message 6.
Thank you kglad. I appreciate your insight. I'm just dumbfounded by Adobe.
And in searching elsewhere I see I'm not alone in my frustrations with Captivate.
Adobe, if you're not compatible with the current operating system you should SAY SO. Don't bury it. Come out on the page where you're offering it, getting people to sign up and tell them YOU DON'T WORK on the latest system. You've wasted HOURS of my time.
And it's been 5-months since it was released. Really?
yes, i agree. i'm not sure what the issue is.
i know sierra broke a lot of older adobe software and i'm not sure what effort was required to make the latest adobe suite of programs compatible with sierra, but it does seem unusual that a major product like captivate would not be compatible with a major os.
i also did some googling and saw a lot of sierra/captivate problems and didn't see anyone with a solution. but i only checked for a few minutes.
because you've spent so much time already with this, it might be worth a few more hours of searching to see if anyone found a work-around (other than using parallels etc).
