I posted the answer on another reply, but I know exactly HOW frustrated you must be because I was in the exact boat and felt like throwing my laptop out of a window. Simply follow the following easy steps:
1. Open Network and Sharing Center
2. Click Change adapter settings
3. Right-click the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter, and click Disable.
4. Open Adobe Reader and Help > Check for Updates
And voila, updates a la Adobe Updater. Enjoy!
My God it worked! How did you find this solution? I Googled "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter" and found it creates a "virtual" wi-fi card that can cause problems resolving DNS. Do you think Adobe's Update Server couldn't function because of this?
At any rate I greatly appreciate your help!
That is a great catch. I fiddled with my firewall on a few different occasions assuming that was the problem. Never would have guessed the mini-port adapter. It would be nice if Adobe put out a knowledgebase article!
Thank you !!! Thank you!!! Thank you !!!
Great question...great answer...Thank you thank you
Brilliant answer. One note, when I got through, it wanted to install a new Adobe Updater, and the default location to install it does not exist in Windows 7 64 bit. After redirecting that, it worked perfectly.
Good solution! It also worked for Photoshop Elements 7 on my laptop with Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium Edition
Just posted this error code and had no answerers ! Then I found ken7795 Wow>>> this guy good, Thank you. IT WORK!!!!
Sorted! This has been bugging me for ages!!! Thank you
This worked perfectly for my Photoshop CS6 installation. Still not sorted your end Adobe?
I have the same problem with Adobe Updater but on Windows 8
Is there anyone out there who knows the way out of this dilemma on Windows 8?
I have this problem on windwos 8 too...
Great answer Ken7795. However, that was not sufficient for my copy of Win 7. I also had to disable another network adapter entitled "Broadcom Virtual Wireless Adapter". I wonder if that is the solution for you Win 8 folks. Many thanks.
PROBLEM RESOLVED!!! I FINALLY FOUND THE SOLUTION!!!
~For Windows 8~
1) Under Control Panel, navigate to the top right search bar and type in "device manager"
2) Click on "Device manager" after the search
You should see a tree-like map of your devices in the new window
3) Navigate: view>show hidden devices
4) Under "Network adapters", right click on the "Microsoft Wi-fi Direct Virtual Adapter" and select disable.
5) Run updates for your Adobe software on your Windows 8 machine and VOILA!!
I followed the steps above on a Microsoft surface running windows 8 pro, but I also had to disable Microsoft hosted network virtual adapter before update would work.
Kipedias rulez. Work on my PC-Win8 and CS6, THX
Just wanted to report that it still works - HP Envy laptop with Windows 7 - July 8, 2014

I just tried to reinstall CS 5.5 on a fresh Windows 10 installation when I ran into the following error:
"The update server is not responding. The server might be offline temporarily, or the Internet or firewall settings may be incorrect. Please try again later. Error Code: U41M1C212"
After trying the solutions on this post the problem was not resolved and I found the
This suggestion here advises how to show hidden adapters which indeed revealed the adapter that was previously not visible on my system. Although I disabled the adapter, this also did not resolve the issue either.
This thread suggests disabling all "unplugged" adapters or to reset the"AKamai NetSession Interface Control". Not the solution in my case.
I thought that maybe the Adobe Application Manager could be updated separately and found this.
Updated AAM and it worked!
Thank you for sharing your solution with us. Much appreciate it.
ken7795 I've seen this network adapter suggestion a few times but my system, Windows 10, does not have any "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter" listed. Are any of these the same beast by a different name (see image below)?
