How to Reinstall Previous Versions of Creative Cloud Apps

I recently received this question after a customer installed CC 2015, and unintentionally removed their CC 2014 apps.

“How do I reinstall previous versions of my Creative Cloud apps? They don’t show up in the Previous Versions section of the Apps tab. I also filtered the Find Additional Apps section to show all apps and I don’t see them. Where did they go?”

First, I should point out that the Latest Versions & Previous Versions sections within the Apps tab show what’s currently installed on your machine.

Find previous versions of Creative Cloud apps by filtering menu.

Find previous versions of Creative Cloud apps under the filter menu.

To install previous versions of Creative Cloud apps, you’ll start by going to the Find Additional Apps section of the Apps tab within the Creative Cloud Desktop App. Select the filter menu, and change the All Apps setting to View Previous Versions as shown in the image above.

You will see previous versions listed when clicking the install button.

You will see previous versions listed when clicking the install button.

Once the filter has been set, you will see a list of Creative Cloud apps. Clicking the install button will reveal the versions list, and you can reinstall any previous app version available.

    Hello, I did everything right but bot all apps show up, I’m running on ASUS TP500LA Windows 10- Enterprise 64bit, the only apps shows up are Edge Animate CC and Gaming SDK, so how can I fix this?

    Thanks.

      Ahmad – Are you in an enterprise environment where your deployments are controlled? Are you subscribed to a single app only? You will only see the complete app lists if you are entitled under a full CC subscription.
