Trying to update Photoshop Elements 11. Can't continue until I close ElementsAutoanalyzer. How do?

Nov 23, 2012 10:51 AM

The updater will not let me continue until I close ElementsAutoanalyzer.exe. I can't find such a file. As far as I know I am not running such a program. How do I continue?

    Launch Task Manager. In the Processes tab you will find it running. Just kill it.

    Auto-Analyzer in Elements Organizer automatically detects and tags the following when analyzing media.

    Auto analyzer is run as soon as you import media into Elements Organizer. When there is considerable media to analyze, run auto analyzer during the system’s idle time.

    • Face
    • Audio
    • Blur
    • Brightness and contrast
    • Motion
    • Shake

    You can add additional tags manually after auto analysis. However, the Auto Analyzer tags can be removed from media, but you cannot edit/delete them from the smart tags list


    In case you do not wish to run it just disable it from


    1. Select Edit > Preferences > Media-Analysis (Windows), or Adobe Elements Organizer 11 > Preferences > Media-Analysis (Mac OS).
    2. Deselect Analyze Media For Smart Tags Automatically.
