About a month ago, I downloaded the trial of PR CS6. I also bought the relevant "Classroom in a Book" and began working my way through it, using the included projects. I made it about halfway before my trial expired, but that was enough to convince me that Adobe was a worthwhile product. So I joined the Creative Cloud, taking advantage of the sale for educators.
Now, I can no longer open any of the projects from the book. Whether I try to open the original project, or one that I've edited on, I get the same message:
"This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with this sequence type."
I'm concerned. There are several things about this I find alarming.
So, can someone help me? What's the magic fix to get this up and runing again? Or have I made a horrible, horrible mistake, and should I quick cancel before my 30 days to do so expires?
Thanks for the reply!
The Deactivate/Reactivate method didn't work for me. I am unable to deactivate the software. "Deactivation not successful. Please try again."
Uninstalling / cleaning / reinstalling is not something I'm willing to consider at this point. I have legacy versions of other Adobe products, and don't want to risk the scrub tool rendering those unfunctional as well.
There is an available update, but it fails to install because something called "Dynamicclick" needs to be shut down.
Sorry for the lack of info, let me fill that in:
Premiere Pro CS 6.0.0
Unable to. Installer runs for about an hour, then tells me to close a program that, to the best of my ability to locate, does not exist.
Various. .mp4, .mov, .avi files. Not only the files from the training DVD, but also AVCHD files from a camcorder.

Trying to open projects that worked last week.
When the problem first appeared, part of my troubleshooting involved restarting the machine and launching Premiere by itself. Didn't help.
Not yet. haven't had the chance!
Mac Mini, 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM. No 3rd party hardware attached.
Nope. At least, I don't think so.
Neither. I can't get to the stage where either previews or output are available.
Well, that was helpful! I used the online chat help. The tech took control of my machine, poked and prodded for a while, and seems to have resolved the issue. What worked?
1. First, she downloaded and updated the Adobe Application Manager.
2.This allowed her to successfully launch Premiere and deauthorize the computer.
3. She quit Premiere
4. Then, she renamed user/library/Application Support/Adobe/Premiere Pro/6.0 to 6.0(old)
5. She relaunched Premiere
6. We reauthorized the computer
7. It worked
