Everytime I try to open Fireworks CS6 (latest version of Master Collection and all updated), it refuses to run and a small pop up dialogue opens to say: An internal error occured. The pop up message cannot be removed. Each time I click it, it simply returns and I have to CTRL ALT DEL to shut down Fireworks.
Any ideas folks?
You're right. There's a lack of input from Adobe on this forum. There's also a shortage of input/help from the community as a whole. (Except for a few individuals, people tend to show up, ask their question, and then leave, or else someone starts a rant against Adobe and then everybody else piles on; the latter tend to be the lengthiest threads with the most views.)
That said, this is a user forum, intended primarily for people with specific questions about the software—how to use a feature, how to accomplish a specific task, etc. Your issue is a bit more in the domain of technical support. (As a Mac user who's not experienced this problem, I have little idea how to help here; reinstalling Fireworks was a good idea on your part, and it's a bit surprising that it didn't work.)
There are other Adobe forums available:
If someone on the "Downloading, Installing, Setting Up" forum kicks your question back to this forum, just post again and make it clear that it's an installation issue, not a Fireworks application/user issue. Otherwise, contacting Adobe's customer support/technical support would be recommended. As always, Google is your friend here; try searching terms like "Fireworks CS6 installation internal error occurred Windows" and variations like that, to see if you can find a posted solution to this problem somewhere.
Also look for pages like this one: http://helpx.adobe.com/fireworks/kb/fireworks-cs6-known-issues.html
Thanks for the help folks - but, sadly, none of it works.
I tried the adobe Chat thing last week and was offered the solution of deleting a specific registry key and a folder. However, that didn't work either.
I was also offered the chance to allow Adobe to take over my system remotely and fix it. That's fine but I've replied YES to this TWICE on the support chat thread. But I've had no further reply.
Clearly Adobe are aware of the problem because they originally sent me a 'secret' link to a page that isn't available easily. Certainly, I've never seen it before and couldn't SAVE it. It opens in a separate window with no save controls etc.
So, it seems I'm stuck with a version of Fireworks CS6 that will never work again!
