Adobe Updater not working

Oct 12, 2011 1:47 PM



I just had to do a lenghty re-install of CS3.  Now, my updater won't work.  When I incresed the log level, I finally got an error that may be the problem.


10/12/2011 8:00:09 PM: GetAppIDUpdates: getting available update info for AppID: AdobeUpdater

10/12/2011 8:00:09 PM: AdobeUpdater: signature is not valid (C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Updater5\AdobeUpdate.cer)


It apparently doesn't like the security certificate in the updater's program directory.


Is there a way I can reinstall the updater by direct download?  Or maybe download and install a patch?  Or maybe even get the valid *.cer files?


Thanks,  Mike

    I am going to assume that you really mean Updater and not Tracker.  Try running AdobeUpdaterInstallMgr.exe located in the same folder.
