Got that message while running a script to remove some left over Adobe Package. The software was removed, but with that "fail" message. Just curious to know the meaning of the message.
Not something I've ever come across as a message. I don't think that's one of "ours" - we're just picking it up & reporting it in a "here's SOMETHING I got" as an exercise in being helpful.
A bit of google-fu reveals the following types of articles (obviously go out to external sites) indicates that the error most likely comes from the OS-level:
- there's a few items related to this error on stackoverflow, albeit for mongodb.
... I'd suggest maxing out the Adobe-uninstaller logging / examining that ... it may give you some information to go on. We're "just the messenger" here, and I suspect that it's actually something that the Adobe (un-)installer is trying to do beneath the covers that actually throws this error. Assuming they have vaguely competent logging (no idea, I never had to look) you should have a breadcrumb to follow from their logs onward.
Another way to look at the problem could be by running SysInternals' PROCESS MONITOR and seeing which process is throwing the error & working your way backwards from there.
Hope that helps .
