  6. Important: Please do not install Adobe Creative Cloud software on your RCCD workstation. Not all RCCD workstations are compatible with Adobe Creative Cloud Software. Installing this software on your workstation can consume a significant amount of memory and hard disk space which may interfere with other software that has been installed on your workstation. If you would like your RCCD workstation evaluated for compatibility with Adobe Creative Cloud software, please submit a work order to the helpdesk.

What to do if you already have Adobe software installed on your workstation:

If you already have Adobe software installed on your workstation, you do not need to download and install Adobe Creative Cloud software. You will be able to continue using the software installed on your workstation, although you may eventually be prompted to sign in using your RCCD SSO credentials, as described above. If you would like your RCCD workstation evaluated for compatibility with Adobe Creative Cloud software, some workstations are not compatible, then please submit a work order to the helpdesk at ServiceDesk or contact them at or 951-222-8388.
