I have a lot of projects built in Premiere CC 2014, and because I don't really want to learn a new interface or deal with projects not loading properly, I continue to use the 2014 version of Premiere.  Recently, however, I received some clips in H.265 format which CC 2014 cannot handle, so in addition to leaving the old version of Premiere 2014 on my system, I installed the latest version of Premiere Pro so I could use and convert those clips.  At the same time, although I did not select it for an upgrade, Media Encoder updated itself to the latest version.  Unfortunately, that somehow disabled the ability for my older version of Premiere CC 2014 to send projects to queue in Media Encoder; I now get the error message: "Adobe Media Encoder is not installed.  Please download it and install it to use this feature."  I looked on the CC app to download a previous version:  the oldest one is CC 2017, which I installed, but I am still getting the error.  How can I download the older version of Media Encoder that will work with the queue function of Adobe Premiere CC 2014?  This is very frustrating since I didn't "ask" the CC App to install the new version of Media Encoder .. just the newest version of Premiere.  And yes:  I know that I can just export directly from Premiere 2014, but when you are exporting multiple timelines, that queue functionality is essential.  Thanks!

After Effects, Premiere Pro and Media Encoder works only with each other when they're from the same release. F.eg. newest AE and PPro from december 2018 release will work with and connect to nothing else than AME form the same december release. If And with older versions is the same - older PPro 2014 will work only with AME 2014 so that is why you are getting errors trying to export from PPro 2014 withhout having AME 2014 installed.
As for "updating older AME and not just installing newer version it should ask you during instalation do you wish to update or leave older version and just instal newer one and probably that happened, you let CC installer "update your AME".

And now for the most important thing for you - that mean finding older version of AMe - I don't have to goog information for you. Last yera Adobe removed older versions of its products so it is impossible. More on that you can find here: Prior major releases of Premiere, Audition, Prelude and AME have been removed

What an absolute Chad. Not only did you answer his question, but you mentally destroy him. I can't believe you made fun of him for not knowing Adobe's horrible installation proccess, and assuming that he was the one at fault. Tell ya what mate, instead of treating random people like children, maybe you should give some helpful advice so when others have the same question, work can get done.

Also, yes you can find an older version of AME. Not through Adobe, but there are copies of it on the interwebs. You might be able to get a download link from customer support, but enjoy the 3 some hour wait times...

Try System Restore to a point before you updated the Adobe applications.
