    Could you please provide more information, such as the crash information (APPCRASH, something else, etc), your hardware (tablet, Desktop, Laptop, etc), and any other specs you know (Intel/AMD cpu, amount of RAM, etc).

    Those numbers are pretty important to help diagnose what's going wrong. Is the text a traditional APP_CRASH?


    Are you familiar with installing drivers? My next question would be (not knowing the release notes of 8.1), are your drivers WHQL (certified) for compatibility with 8.1. Sometimes upgrades can interfere with existing drivers. Check to see if your graphics and sound cards are up to date on drivers.


    Do you have Photoshop? If so does it crash as well? Any other apps?

    If Photoshop opens that pretty much rules out the GPU drivers being an issue (unless for some reason you disabled it which I doubt).


    I think you're right about 8.1. The tech requirements page hasn't been updated to say 8.1 yet at least:


    However the upgrade to 8.1 is mostly centered around user experience (having now read them). I honestly see nothing in the list of changes that has to do with graphics or audio which is usually the culprit.


    That leaves storage. One thing I do note is desktop booting (no user/password). I wonder if this has changed something permissions-based. More specifically if there's more (mostly unncecessary) security under the hood on a file basis now that computers can boot to desktop. I don't have 8.1 so I can't say. To find out, just right-click on Flash and start it as Administrator and it would answer that question (no permission issues).

    This is a known issue with Flash Pro CC - GM build.


    this crash has been fixed in the update that was released recently. Please update to version and it should fix this.


    Please reply if it still persists after the update.
