Try rebooting your computer. I had this problem on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro. Rebooting and then executing the AdobePatchInstaller app solved it for me.
Thank You. Rebooting solved the issue. I had tried logout and login but that didn't help.
I think Adobe have a problem here with Application Manager. Not running any Adobe app and still have instances of AAM sort of running is not what suppose to happen.
The same istallation problem here with Windows Vista. Rebooting doesn´t help, searching for running services/apps gives nothing.
However, on my XP machine the update runs fine.
That does little to comfort me though, as I need to use my Vista machine...
I hope Adobe sort this out to the full release.
While you get this error to close "Adobe Application Manager" which all Adobe CS5 produts are in launched state? Can you please check the task manager if there is two entries of the launched product? In case there is no Adobe CS5 product launched, is in task manager any Adobe CS5 product listed? If there are close them all and try again. Also please check if there is any Adobe screen such as serialization, Adobe ID or anything related to Adobe is open.
I couldn't see any Adobe related process in the task manager. I tried
to open PS and from there activated Updates. The app manager was
launched which I also could see in the task manager. After closing the
app manager and PS no Adobe task was running.
I tried to logout and login in again but the problem remained. Finally
I rebooted OS X and after that I successfully was able to update to
I also tried to run AdobePatchInstaller with PS open. In that case AAM
displayed a message that PS was open and had to be closed i.e. a
totally expected behaviour compared to the previous error message I
got before reboot.

Such problem may occur when some adobe product installation(setup.exe) is already going on and adobepatchinstaller(ACR 6.1 RC in this case) is launched. Could you please check your task manager to see if any of the following is happenning
a. Two instances of PDApp.exe are running at the same time
b. One PDApp.exe is running and one Setup.exe is running at the same time
c. Setup.exe is running
In case any of the above 3 is happenning, close all instances of PDApp.exe and Setup.exe and try applying the ACR 6.1 RC again.
I have checked for any possible running service/app and there is nothing that I can identify as related to Adobe.
As I said, on my WinXP machine installation ran fine and I can´t understand why it won´t work with Vista.
I can live without the RC build for now, I´m just worried that there will problems installing the final version. It would really p... me off if I couldn´t install the update when it becomes available.
Search for AAM Updates Notifier.exe in your task manager and kill it. Try updating again.
OK, let me say this again:
I have checked for any running app or service related to Adobe and there is no such thing running!
Obviously the full release is now available and even this refuses to install under the same excuse: "another instance of updater is already running".
And I repeat again: no instance of updater IS running!
This is turning into a nightmare. I haven´t had these problems before CS5 on this machine.
