What happens if you start from PP and use File>Dynamic Link>Import After Effects Composition...
I had the same problem quite a while ago.
Do You use ZoneAlarm or a similair Firewall system?
I think i remember allowing "dynamiclinkmanager" in my firewall to act as a server / allow all access did the trick. Give it a try.
(i had 2 instances of dynamiclinkmanager show up in the zone alarm Application Control.)
The Dynamic Link Server Program needs access from one Program to another (AE / PR / EN / ME) and therefore some Firewalls mistake it as a threat,
since some malware does a similair thing...
-and keep smiling...
Jim - I tried using both the Dynamic Link Import option, as well as right clicking and Importing from there. Still no luck.
Felix - The only firewall I'm running is Windows. I manually added dynamiclinkmanager as well as Premier and After Effects, both with Domain and Home/Work(Private) selected to allow communication. Still no luck.

Grr. I rember having the exact same situation, but not,
How I got rid of it...
You are sure, you run your applications as admin?
- i mean not just being logged in as admin, but in your premiere etc. exe's
Right clicked properties > compatibility > run as admin... ?
You might have done this already, but i'm trying to remember
the steps i took to solve this...
Yeah, when I open Premiere, I have to type in my username and password for this computer. Should dynamiclink manager and after effects be the same?
You are not running with full administrator rights. Correct that first.
That was the issue. I assumed running as administrator gave me full control settings.
