Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App stuck on waiting for update(Mac and Windows)

I have seen many forums suggesting uninstall and reinstall all Adobe products or rename the OOBE folder but what worked for me every time is to update the ServiceConfig.xml file.
  • On Mac Machines, Sign out of Adobe CC desktop App
  • Open Activity monitor Stop all Adobe services
  • Open /Library/Application Support/Adobe/OOBE/Configs 
  • Copy the ServiceConfig.xml file to the desktop opens it with text editor then change all the 'false' value to 'true.'  Save the file. 
  • Copy and replace the existing file in  /Library/Application Support/Adobe/OOBE/Configs
  • On Windows machines, the ServiceConfig.xml file is under C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\Configs
  • Copy the file to the desktop, open it with notepad and then change the 'False' value to 'True'.
  • Save the file then copy and replace the existing fil under C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\ Configs\ServiceConfig.xml

PXE Boot Aborted : Booting to Next Device

PXE Boot Aborted message might come up when doing OS deployment using PXE.

The main reason could be the machine was already imaged before using SCCM, so try to Clear Required PXE Deployment by right-clicking on the computer name.

If you still get‘PXE Boot aborted’ error message then see if there is any other name for the machine. Sometimes a failed deployment or old deployment leave a different name.

Search the machine name (MININT-SBNED6G) under devices in Configuration Manager and remove it.
You should be able to do PXE boot successfully
