The media analyis /face recognition always crashes on my Athlon XP using Elements 11. I have to switch off this feature in the preferences. But If I want to add a person to my catalog it tries at first to scan my old catalog and then always starts the media analysis immediately crashing my organizer. In Elements 9 person are handled as normal tags. How I can get rid of the media analysis?
May be renaming BreezeSession.dat file can help. Please go to location : C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Elements Organizer\Catalogs\<your catalog>\BreezeData and rename this file to say BreezeSession_old.dat.
ON XP, the corresponding location would be - \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data folders perhaps..
Now launch Organizer and run People Recognition.
I could not find a BreezeData file. In the calatog directory are two subdirs names projects and WaldoData . Updated files are tagstatus.dat, thumb5.cache peoplestatus.dat. The application error occures in module tbb.dll at address 0x000253da.
step 1 : Please launch Organizer and turn off auto-analysis <ensure that Analyze media for smart tags checkbox is off>.
step 2 : Now close organizer and go to the programdata location and within your catalog folder, delete psa.prf and status.dat files.
See if this helps.
If not, try doing just step 1 and then relaunching Organizer. This also might fix the issue.
I switched off media analysis of smart tags in PE 11, then deleted peoplestatus.dat and tagstatus.dat in my catalog folder (there was no *.prf) file. After adding a person the organizer crahes again at the media analysis of the first picture.
I am running the face recognition onto JPEG files. In between I have installed PE for test purposes on a Pentium Core 2 Duo running Windows Vista. On this system everything seems to work. Perhaps it has something to do with my single core Athlon lacking SSE2 support. I remember problems with PE9 using the healing brush on single core systems. It had been fixed by a patch from Adobe.
In that case, all I can do is suggest 'Add a person' functionality for adding people manually <without people face rects >
Right click on an image >> select "Add a person" from the context menu. This will help you organize your people by People and hence populate your people view.
Is there anyone else facing similar issue on similar system configuration?
