Error U41M1C212 while updating Adobe Products.

Error U41M1C212 comes when the updater can't contact the update server. This may be due to various reasons. Probably there is something odd on your local machine or network preventing your machine from communicating with the server.

Please follow the below mentioned steps to resolve this issue:
1. Open control panel by clicking on Windows logo and click 'control panel' as shown in following snapshot

2. Click on 'Network and Sharing Center' as shown in following snapshot:

3. In 'Network and Sharing center  dialog on left side, click on 'Change adapter settings' link as shown in following snapshot:

4. In the 'Change adapter settings' dialog, Right-click the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter, and click 'Disable' as shown in attached snapshot:
5. Close the 'Network and Sharing center' dialog. Open PSE and click 'Help -> Check for Updates'.

Please leave your comments if you have any queries. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Any feedback on improving the quality/content of the blog is highly appreciated.

  1. I just tried the above and it seemed like it was going to work. Alas, I got more messages that don't make sense to me: It told me to close Elements Auto Analyzer.exe and then it told me (inside Adobe Application Manager) that administrator privileges are required to continue with the installation. I never got any further. Can you give me any more guidance?

  2. Hey,
    Please follow:
    "It told me to close Elements Auto Analyzer.exe" -- If the updater asks to quit any application (Which in your case is ElementsAutoAnalyser.exe) then open task manager. Go to 'Processes' tab and look for ElementsAutoAnalyser.exe. Once you are able to find it, right click the .exe and select 'End Process Tree'.

    "It told me (inside Adobe Application Manager) that administrator privileges are required to continue with the installation." -- It appears that you are using a multi-user machine. If such is the case, please log in using administrator and then continue the update process. Alternatively you can try launching 'Updater' with 'Run as admin'.

    Please let me know if these steps doesn't work for you.

  3. I'm getting this problem on Windows 8 but this fix doesn't appear to work since I can only see one wireless adapter & that is the one I need to use. Any other ideas how to resolve it?

  4. When is somebody going to just say it: Adobe needs to fix their seriously flawed update system instead of making everybody go through all this micky-mouse. No other software puts us through an ordeal like this just to do updates. Time to find another photo editor.
