This is really starting to bug me. When I go to start Premiere Pro or Prelude, I get an error message stating "Could not find a capable video driver. Update display drivers." The only way either of those two program sill open is if I run them as an Administrator. I feel I should not have to do that. I have the newest NVIDIA video driver - just downloaded it today! But, I still get that message. Fortunately, running Premiere Pro as an Administrator, I can open it and use it without issue.
Here is how my computer is setup:
HP h8-1080t Desktop
24 GBs of DDR3 RAM
Quad-Core i7 Processor
NVIDIA GTX-580 GPU
Has anyone else came across this? If so, what was your solution?
Isn't the account you first setup when you install Windows 7 on your computer and Admin account? I can install and uninstall programs. Also, I can make changes to programs with my account I use. When I look into the user settings in the control panel, I have Administrative right. Is there something I'm missing?
This is what I see when I go into my settings:
Wow! Well I guess nothing is wrong with my computer then. I had did the "right-click" and check "run as Admin" for those programs. That was the only way I could get them to load and work. I guess it is a simple fix I will have to live with. Master Collection CS6 works very well on my workstation. The whole "error message" thing was really bugging me because I thought something was wrong with my system. For anyone who has not updated to CS6 - do so NOW! Adobe hit another home run with this one!
With the CS5 I still use, after doing what I show at the 2nd link in my 9:12 AM message, all I have to do is tell Windows "yes" I want to run the program in Administrator mode when I click the icon
VERY small price to pay for fewer problems (in the case of Encore, the ONLY way to create a dual layer DVD)
I built my computer and installed Win7 64bit Pro so I am the only/Admin user... and I still had to use the "run as" setting
Like I said... Win7 permissions are sometimes ODD
I just bought the CS6 Production Suite and are having the same "...could not find any capable video play modes...." I've searched all the @#^$%! blogs and My video drivers are ups to date, I tried opening with "as admin" etc. etc. ..............My CS5.5 Premiere and OnLocation works fine and the CS6 After Effects opens and works fine.
I still can't find a fix for Pr CS6 and is driving me insane! I have a desktop with win7, 24 gb of ram and a nice NVidia card but really would love to use CS6 Premiere and Prelude but can't with this "could not find any capable video play modes".
Please help Adobe!
>a nice NVidia card... Please help Adobe!
1a - what is the model nVidia card, and what is your driver version?
1b - for instance, I have a GTX 285 and driver 296.10
2a - aside from the occassional Adobe employee, this is a user to user forum, not Adobe suport
2b - how to contact Adobe...

John, You're right about this being a user forum...I'm just getting near my wit's end! I have a GTX 260 Version 301.42 driver (the latest one NVidia has as of this morning.) I just don't feel I should have to pay for Adobe's support if I've already bought their software and they're not easy to talk to either. I guess I was just blowing some digital steam!
I just love CS6 and all their software to ever look else where. Thanks!!!!!
