    I had that happen to me also when I needed to update my copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 (APE10) so I could convert/open RAW images (specifically .RAF images). I uninstalled the Creative Cloud which Adobe installed & downloaded the update from the Adobe website & it installed fine w/o the CC mess.

    Sadly APE10 wont open the .RAF images w/ the update.
    I ended installing the software that came w/ the camera to extract the RAW images, that works fine but doesn't have many features so I use APE10 for my other pp photo work after conversion of the .RAF file.

    Thread update:

    For Adobe Acrobat there is special separate updater:
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe" /PRODUCT:Acrobat /VERSION:11.0 /MODE:1
    (Acrobat XI in x64OS)
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe" /PRODUCT:Acrobat /VERSION:11.0 /MODE:1
    (Acrobat XI in x32OS)

    Both are the same. The only difference of Adobe CC is that the program offers to install Adobe Creative Cloud evaluation programs. But I don´t consider, and apply only updates coming for Adobe CS6.
    Who doesn´t like Adobe CC, it´s a nice way to return to Adobe Application Manager.

    Adobe Application Manager offers CC-pack evaluations (like Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC etc.) and CC-pack free applications (like Bridge CC etc.) too... :)
