You seem to have doen all the steps already. Short of monitoring the behavior with tools like Sysinternals' System Monitor or even a TCP monitoring app like Wireshark I can*'t think of much. The only thing lefgt are permission/ user privileges issues both in terms of being able to launch the required service as well as e.g. access to the temp folder and similar...
I'm not very familiar with these monitoring programs, that said, looking at the Process Explorer from Sysinternals, I can see "AfterFX.exe" running with "dynamiclinkmanager.exe" as a sub operation and "Adobe QT32 Server.exe" as a sub of the previous.
I applied the "3D Camera Tracker" in AE, got the same error message. No sighn of "Adobe Analysis Server" running.
I found the "Adobe Analysis Server" application in the "support files" sub folder of "Adobe Afer Effects CS6" file. I double clicked it and "Adobe Analysis Server.exe" appears as a sub process of "AfterFX.exe". Tried to analyze the footage, and the same error message pops up.
It seems as if AE can't start the AAS on its own, and even with it running along side with AE, it doesn't know how to comunicate with the analyzer.
is there a way to see where AE is reaching out to AAS, possibly redirect it or move the application?
I have no idea which specific commands are involved here, on which ports it's supposed to operate and which ones it is actually using nor how it's actually loading/ unloading from memory. It should simply work. If it doesn't even make a blip in task manager/ system monitor, then I'm not sure what to advise. Without knowing the registry keys or whatever that control the connection, there is no way to hack them in manually. that doesn't mean it can't be fixed in some way, but unless one of the employes cares to share that info, I'm afraid this is not really going anywhere. As a last try you might actualyl want to uninstall your firewall software and virus scanner rather than just disabling it. Sometimes disabling them realyl only mnakes them hibernate, while they still occupy and monitor stuff.

I too encountered this problem when attempting use the camera tracking tool. I was extremely worried that I had spent ALOT of money on something that wouldn't work!
After playing around for a while, and searching the internet for answers, I ran After Effects as administrator (right click on shortcut, and click 'Run as Administrator'), then it worked!
I hope this works for you.
thankyou thankyou thankyou thankyou!!
iv been wanting to use the camera tracker for some intros for a while but it hasnt worked up until now! thankyou!!
Muchusimas gracias Dios te bendiga
Hi any suggestions for fixing this on a mac? I have the exact same issue.
My boyfriend just downloaded the trial version on his mac (same spec) and can run the camera tracker no problem.
Great that it doesn't work on the version that we've actually paid for....
Please please can someone help me. I need to be able to use the camera tracker on my mac.
I have tried uninstalling AE, running the cleanup and reinstalling. I have also tried logging in with a new adobe profile.
I have tried turning off firewalls.
I am using a Macbook Pro on OS X Yosemite.
8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
2.4 GHz Intel Core i5
Graphics: Intel Iris 1536 MB
AE CC 2014.
Whenever I try to run the camera tracker I get the spinning wheel, after effects locking up and finally an error message.
Could not launch Adobe Analysis Server. (515)
It is not the footage as my boyfriend is able to track the same footage no problem on his mac.
