We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Trying to install latest patch to FM 2017. Download the zip file and run AdobePatchInstaller.exe. Get one of two "Update Failed" messages that alternate seemingly randomly: 1) Please contact your Administrator if you wish to apply updates. Updates have been suppressed by the Administrator" and 2) "Adobe Application Manager may be damaged. Download and install a new copy of 'Adobe Application Manager' (hyperlinked to an Adobe site that does not have that app listed).
What's happening if you try running the Help > Updates routine within FM? Was that not working? If so, have you tried the direct link to the FM patches - Adobe - FrameMaker : For Windows ? Do you have local admin rights to your machine?
Tried the latter (that's where I got the download file). Have admin rights. Surprisingly, "Updates" is grayed out on the Help>Updates dropdown.
Is your copy of FM2017 part of the Tech Comm Suite? If so, another component may have the Help > Updates link active.
No, it is a standalone download from my company's website.
Ah, then you're probably on a volume licensing plan - that would disable it IIRC.
Yes, IT (dept) disabled it in this file: C:/Program Files(x86)/Common Files/Adobe/AAMUpdaterInventory/1.0/AdboeUpdaterAdminPrefs.dat.
