What is the exact version number of AME that you're using?
Hi Szalam, thank you for answering.
AME : 2014.2 release, build number : 184.108.40.206
AE : 2014.2 release, build number : 220.127.116.11
Since i just reinstalled and instantly after installing i clicked the update button, i bet they are both the up-to-date versions for CC 2014.
Could you tell me if it is normal that :
(1) in AE, File > Adobe Dynamic Link is greyed out, and
(2) there is no dynamiclinkmediaserver.exe running while i have AE running. From what i read elsewhere, that stuff should be there running too... I really don't know why it is not, since i've just made a fresh reinstall.
That is odd. Have you tried the CC 2015 releases yet?
Not yet, but i cannot admit that this could be the issue. CC2014 is supposed to work fine.
There is something reallly wrong on my pc that i can't fix / get rid of / god knows what.
As a last resort i will reisntall the system itself, but i really dont want that.
I've never had just AE installed on a system, so I don't have enough experience to offer many other clues.
As you say, CC 2014 should be working...
You can render out of AE's render queue into an intermediate format and then drop the resulting file into the Adobe Media Encoder to make your deliverable, right?
It's not a big deal to install AE CC 2015 alongside AE CC 2014. (Just make sure it doesn't remove your older versions; see this page.) Having both versions installed is actually the recommended practice anyway. Project files work interchangeably between the two versions, so things are very nice. I prefer to work in CC 2015 because it's snappier and more interactive and then I (often) open it and render in CC 2014 to use multiprocessing. However, if you're just sending it to AME, you might never need to open CC 2014 again!

Forgot to mention, if you do try CC 2015, make sure you update AE CC 2105 to version 13.7.1! There were many critical bugs fixed from 13.5.0 until now.
If all else fails, and you really want to stick with CC 2014, I'd recommend contacting Adobe support.
Thank you Szalam for considerations.
I think i'll go the Adobe support route, it is so wierd that a process is missing, probably not something that can be solved with tricks.
