You have got to be kidding. So I open Photoshop CC2015 for the first time and all my third party apps (filters, etc.) are gone. Do you have any idea how long it takes me to reinstall all that stuff? No to mention that some of them are reporting that they are incompatible with CC2015 because it has bugs. Please tell me you are going to fix all this immediately. Like yesterday.

You did need to to do an Advanced Installation.

And THAT "Advanced" Installing is one of the worst ideas that Adobe has ever had!

I'll bet that 90% of the ACC Subscribers failed to notice "Advanced" and; if they did see it, they had no idea that what had always been a NORMAL Installation routine (with existing software left safely in place) had now been changed to require an "Advanced Installation".

However, third-party plug-ins should either have either been saved as a Backup somewhere; or optimally, they should be freshly installed for a new version of Photoshop.

There is nothing here for Adobe to fix - you have to reinstall your plugins (and pick up updates to fix the bugs in the plugins) with each major version, and CC 2015 is a major version upgrade.
