AdobeIPCBroker.exe prevents uninstallation of an Adobe product

Issue: An error occurs when you attempt to uninstall an Adobe product

When you attempt to uninstall an Adobe application right after uninstalling another Adobe product, the uninstallation process doesn't start.


The AdobeIPCBroker.exe process can prevent two consecutive uninstallations of Adobe products. Do one of the following:

  • Wait for 10-15 minutes and then attempt to uninstall the software.
  • Open Task Manager and terminate the AdobeIPCBroker.exe process from your list of running processes.

Once AdobeIPCBroker.exe is no longer an active process, attempt to uninstall the Adobe software.
