After installing Nokia suite 3.2.100, I was also invited to update the software on my Nokia 5230. The proposed software update was 51.0.002
After initiating the install sequence, backup was created and then, while seeing the "installing software update" I got also the famous 12017 error.
What is the cure for this error ?
Thx - Chris

This is the ONLY solution that worked for me. I followed your instructions to the letter. Thanks a million times over. FYI. The beta trial is over for anyone who is thinking of going that route. If u click on the links in the earlier posts it takes u right back to the ovi/nokia suite. Or in other words SQUARE 1. TRY THIS POST. IT WORKS!!!
I Meant "Jettblacks Post" is the one that worked.
Thanks maddman, glad it worked for you. LINK TO ORIGINAL POST

Thanks JetBlack. Your suggestion solved the problem. I have a C7-00 and tried to update to Symbian Anna and it kept failing until I install NSUpdater from Nokia PC Suite.
Glad to have been some help to you lenaye. Thank you. LINK TO ORIGINAL POST
I got this error (error code: 12017) when trying to reinstall my phone software using Ovi Suite 22.214.171.1244 . I've enclosed as attachments the screenshots of the problem.
Me helped to change USB port!!!
I used to connect via USB hub - everything was fine, but always ended with error 12017. I did all recommended reinstalls but nothing worked out. At desperate I connected USB cable direct to PC and surpise surpise - it helped
Simple fix - On PC: go to Programs --> Nokia --> Software updater and the stand alone updater software will either
a. update itself and then update the phone software OR
b. update the phone software.
Have you tried using Nokia Software Updater as suggested by msco?
