    Error 160 while installing Photoshop CC

      Hello, I have been searching for a solution for days now and haven't had any luck. My issue is when I start downloading Photoshop CC, it get to about 89% and then fails. I get an error message that says this:


      Exit Code: 160

      -------------------------------------- Summary --------------------------------------

      - 2 fatal error(s), 0 error(s), 1 warnings(s)


      FATAL: Error (Code = 160) executing in command 'SetRegistryValueCommand' for package: 'AdobePhotoshop18-Core_x64', version:

      FATAL: Error occurred in install of package (Name: AdobePhotoshop18-Core_x64 Version: Error code: '160'

      WARN: Error Setting Registry - Start 64-bit:1 root:2 key:SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Photoshop.exe name:Default type:REG_SZ data:C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017\Photoshop.exe. Check for Registry permissions. (Error: Error 5 Access is denied.)



      I have read a few other forum post about this but haven't got anything to fix it. I have checked the registry and couldn't find anything to delete or modify under SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Photoshop.exe. I also uninstalled creative cloud, ran the creative cloud cleaner tool and reinstalled creative cloud. All other apps install and run perfectly, but not Photoshop CC. I also tried the support page, in hopes of getting in contact with Adobe, but it only refers back to the forums, which aren't helping. If anyone can help me it would be a life saver.
