Bridge CC: Why won't open it on my Mac?

Apparently, there are many others who have experienced this very same problem. I installed Photoshop CC(2015), InDesign CC(2015), Illustrator CC(2015) and Bridge CC from the Creative Cloud Desktop app and all of them work except Bridge CC. It won't start from the dock, it won't start from within Photoshop or InDesign. Nor will it start if I click and drag a photo file onto the icon in the dock. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app 3 times. I have restarted the computer after an install. I have reset the preferences countless times. I have removed the plug-ins from the Plug-Ins folder and all I get is a Bridge icon that bounces 2-8 times then quits. There are no other versions of Bridge on my computer. I have uninstalled all past CS apps using their appropriate uninstallers. Does anyone have a solution?

Have you tried launching with Cmd + Opt pressed to clear the preview cache and preferences?

Otherwise, I would try creating a new Admin user account and run Photoshop from the new user account to see if the problem goes away: That would rule out or confirm the issue with the user account/permissions.
