Where '/Volumes/Creative Cloud' is a case-insensitive chroot I had to create to attempt to install Adobe Creative Cloud on my case-sensitive Mac...

Also, note that it seems like this doesn't work correctly at boot? The following seems to fix it:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist
launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist
