Camera Raw: HDR doesn't work with more than 5 pictures anymore after Update

I just did Photoshop and Bridge Update on Windows 10 Pro. Camera Raw was updated automatically also.

Now HDR in Camera Raw doesn't work anymore with more than 5 pictures.
 
So when I'm choosing more than 5 pictures in Camera Raw and I do "Zu HDR zusammenfügen..." (Alt+M), an error-window appears:
Fehler: "Der Vorgang konnte nicht abgeschlossen werden"
 
The same behaviour is with "Zu HDR-Panorama zusammenfügen...". The same error appears when choosing to do a HDR from more than 5 pictures.

It worked perfectly before the update. I change to older versions of photshop and Bridge but the bug still stayed.

It already deinstalled all Adobe applications completely and I also did the AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool. But the error still appears.

Is this a bug in the software?

Thank you for your support.

Could you reproduce the error? Is there a workaround for it?

I have exactly the same problem.  I use Mac book pro, and OS is 10.14.6.
Before I could combine 5 or 6 images, now only 3 or 4 max.

@Eric Mas: Thank you for your reply. So the problem is on Windows and IOS. I hope Adobe will find the problem and fix it.

Thanks to another community I found a link for installing the previous version of camera raw. It would have been helpful if Adobe had posted this link also in this thread!

So for all having problems with Camera Raw 11.4. you can change your Camera Raw Version there:

So I went back to Camera Raw 11.3. and installed it that way. Now HDR braketing with more than 5 picturs works again.

Who set this thread to solved? It's not solved! The bug is still there in the current version of camera raw. Going back to 11.3.1 is just a workaround!

Is there a plan to fix this issue?

Mike you are right.  Whoever needs the latest raw software cannot manage to do HDR bracketing with more than 5 pictures.
But I see a bigger problem here.  Someone gave the link to download Raw 11.3.1. I did it and it worked.  But the link is not deactivated.  Why is such a rush in deactivated a link that helped people like me to keep me with my workflow?  I really would like to know  why the link has been deactivated
