I was trying to install adobe after effects on my PC and every time i try to install it it just says error code 41 was unable to access critical file or directory if you know what this means or how to fix this help would be greatly appreciated.
Is it error code 41 or 42? Usually 42 is associated with the "unable to access a critical file or directory" message.
Is your Windows up to date? If not, update it so Windows is able to validate the digital certificate during installation. More info: Error code 42 or 72 when installing Adobe Creative Cloud.
If it is indeed error code 41, can you provide a screenshot of the error as well as info about your operating system? That will help us better troubleshoot.
Also i completely updated windows ten liked you asked and it still dident work.
Okay, 41 is not an error code I've seen, but the message suggests that, for whatever reason, Windows isn't able to make a secure verification of the installation files, and so it's not letting it go through.
Some more questions (just what you wanted, right? 😞
There is also this forum thread where someone was able to work around Error Code 41 with a little task manager wizardry: Felkod 41 / Error code 41. The situation isn't exactly the same, but it may help.
Finally, if none of that fixes the issue, you can try to pinpoint exactly what's going wrong by following the steps in Troubleshoot Adobe Creative Cloud install issues with log files.
Eu estava tendo este mesmo problema a dias sem saber como resolver.
Mas consegui hoje...caso ainda seja de ajuda a alguém, deixarei aqui a solução !
basta instalar o "Adobe Creative Cloud", mas você não instala o After effects por aqui, mas deve instalar o executável logo após a instalação do "Adobe Creative Cloud".
Espero ter ajudado !
