PS, Bridge and LR processes no longer terminating

Hi,

All of a sudden, the bridge.exe, photoshop.exe and lightroom.exe processes are no longer terminating when I quit any of these programs. This problem has started just after the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app updated itself to version 4.9 (another failure, by the way - see https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/cc-desktop-app-stuck-in-an-endless-loop ).

I already had a similar problem sporadically one year ago but this was generally fixed by rebooting the system. Now, I can only terminate these apps by killing the process. Suddenly having the same behavior for all 3 apps is very strange. They all seem to wait on the same thing. But on what ?

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance.

More info about this issue...

Actually, the 3 processes eventually terminate but after a very long time : 3-5 minutes. When monitoring them (PS and LR) with Process Monitor, I can see that they are trying to do things with the Amazon servers although I have disabled synchronization in LR.

Bonjour, je viens de tester sur macOS 10.14.5 Les dernières versions de Photoshop et de Lightroom, les process se terminent dès que l'affichage de le fenêtre logiciel s’efface pour Photoshop et pour Lightroom environ 2 secondes après la disparition de la fenêtre principale. Donc sur macOS ce problème ne se présente pas.

Hello, I just tested on macOS 10.14.5 The latest versions of Photoshop and Lightroom, the process ends when the display of the software window disappears for Photoshop and Lightroom about 2 seconds after the disappearance of the main window. So on macOS this problem does not occur.

Hi,

Problem fixed (at least, I found a workaround). The root of the problem is the latest version of AdobeIPCBroker (5.5.1.11) which is also causing issues with Creative Cloud Desktop. See https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/cc-desktop-app-stuck-in-an-endless-loop .
