Adobe product directories

I've recently upgraded from Photoshop Elements to Photoshop CC 2017 & I never got the libraries to download, or connect with the system.

So I've been trying to get through the workaround and I keep being stumped by expressions they use. I keep stopping and searching to find answers I can understand,

Therefore I ask you please It says to backup all files in Adobe product directories. So what & where are they. Do they mean the *.EXE programs related to Adobe or something hidden away somewhere...Please Help

  • I would assume they are referring to all Adobe folders on your system. Here are some places they may be:

    C:\Program Files (x86)
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files
    C:\Program Files
    C:\Program Files\Common Files

    This chunk of PowerShell looks for every folder with "Adobe" in its name on your system drive (usually C:). Warning, this will also find all sorts of stuff you probably don't care about :)

    ( Get-ChildItem -Recurse -Directory -Include *Adobe* "$env:SYSTEMDRIVE\" 2>$null ).FullName
