Adobe Exchange Vetting
I have the same problem but with Photoshop CC 2018 on my desktop PC. I have Windows 10 Pro and, due to a hard drive crash and subsequent replacement, my OS and all my application installs are "clean". I ran through every single troubleshooting step and nothing resolved the issue. (I sent a detailed email to asupport@adobe com and to 'firstname.lastname@example.org' and am awaiting a response.)
When I booted up my laptop this morning, Creative Cloud sync licked in and installed the plug-in on my laptop (which also has a new hard drive). I haven't attempted to launch Photoshop on the laptop but that will be my next step.
I did note that that the Digimarc add-in compatibility only includes up to Photoshop CC 2017. While this may be my issue, it does not explain Pamela's problem or the apparent installation success on my laptop (also running Windows 10 Pro).
I have done all of the above in your post, and it still doesn't work as described. In fact, when I tried to uninstall the Digimarc add on, it said "Unable to uninstall..." In PhotoShop CC under filters, it shows the Digimarc option, but it is greyed out.
Very frustrating to have spent a couple of hours wading through "fixes" and nothing seems to work. This is on a MacBook Pro, Creative Cloud Desktop installed...
Any help appreciated.

If the filter is appearing but is grayed out this indicates that you do not have an image loaded in the proper format. Please load an image in RGB or CMYK in 8 bit mode, and the filter should appear normally.
Thanks Mike!!! I had been loading it in RGB but 16bit mode. The Digimarc filter works perfectly in 8 bit - sure wish either Adobe or Digimarc made that clear... Or maybe they did and I missed it. Either way, you saved the day!!
