Creative Cloud Packager 1.10 & Creative Cloud 2017 are live!
**Update 12/06/16- CCP 1.11 with the new uninstall workflow is now live**
Apologies for my tardiness on the announcement of CCP 1.10 but I didn’t want to make two announcements in a week and give you Gibson fatigue which is a real thing apparently*.
Last week we went live with CCP 1.10 which, to the delight of the team has broken the endless 1.9.x loop. This release includes various under the hood changes but most significantly also includes the below features
- When you create a package, a packageInfo.txt is created inside the build package folder. This file contains the list of products and updates that you have included in the package. For more information see, Deploy packages.
- When you create a package, a ConflictingProcessList.xml is created inside the build package folder. This file contains information about processes that will conflict with the installation process. For more information, see Deploy packages.
- When you start the installer, it will check for the conflicting processes running on the host computer and exit the installation if any conflicting processes are found.
- The latest version of Remote Update Manager will be downloaded and packaged during the package creation process. For more information, see Use Adobe Remote Update Manager.
Also by way of a sneak we will shortly be including a new workflow in CCP for un-installing previous versions of Creative Cloud applications. If you recall presently the best method to remove a previous version is to use the original CCP package, however if you no longer have that package or wanted to remove only a subset of the applications that were packaged then you are out of luck. This feature when released in November will provide granular control over what previous version of the Creative Cloud applications to remove. I normally don’t like to speak about a feature before it is released but considering our big announcement today I thought it would be useful to know this was on the horizon.
Speaking of the big announcement !
Today Adobe has announced the release of Creative Cloud 2017. As part of this release 15 products have been updated with lots of new features. For more information on the features you can visit here.

All the products are now live in both CCP and the deployment snap in of the Enterprise Dashboard. As usual as these products are full installers so you cannot use the Remote Update Manager to install them. They will also install side by side with the current versions unless you un-install first.
Finally just a reminder you now also have the ability to allow non admins to install products via the Creative Cloud Desktop app by selecting “Elevated Privileges” when creating a package.
