I might be off subject here, but my AE CS6 would not complete the start up and simply hang at "INITIALIZING MEDIA CORE".
After finding some info about that, but for CS5, apparently a Quick Time codec problem, I got rid of PERIAN, and all is well now, it start right up.
I am using an old 2007 2.66 dual core, with 9GB and a 5770 graphic card. Not ultra spiffy, but does the job...
