Maybe you are right. The message says "can not find the server". It doesn't say there are no updates to be applied or all drivers are up to date. :rolleyes:
I'll check my drivers and confirm if there are any to update and report back.

GUYS!! I FOUND IT I DID IT!!! just close your internet connection and install program and then start and open internet connection (I think MSI is under attack by hackers) and If you do it successfully, you will send a thank you to my steam account xxxxx

My fix.

1. Go to task manager. End msi central service, msi center service and msi center processes.
2. Open services and search for MSI Center service and right click to start service.
3. Open MSI center app and see if it’s working.

Close Application from the tray and restart it:

I am also getting the "MSI.CentralServer.exe is abnormal. please restart your computer to launch MSI Center." error since very recently. Restarting doesn't help. My system is an MS-1543 (laptop) running Windows 11 Pro 22H2.

Any help would be appreciated.

hi I'm not English speaking so the text is translated by the app
I also ran into this problem and for a long time could not figure out how to solve this problem without reinstalling Windows
I manually deleted the root folder of MCI Center, and also deleted the MSI Center SDK through the settings, and then I installed it from a bootable USB flash drive that came with the motherboard. After that, the program started working and there were no further failures.
I hope it will help you
