People! Soundbooth crash on launch, Windows XP SP3, CS4, Gateway video card, intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controller
Tech support hero (Josh) in portland,OR had the unexpected work-around, which was to change my system setting "my computer->properties Advanced, Performance-> Visual Effects" from 'Adjust for Best Appearance' to 'Adjust for Best Performance.'
not sure which of the visual effects settings causes the crash, and don't really have the time to narrow the possibilities so for now I can live with the sort of odd Windows 'Best Performance' 'skin'.
then the code launched, which, by the way does a remarkably excellent job of reducing the microphone line noise and tape drive noise artifacts from all these cassette tapes I'm scanning into mp3s.
thanks very much! hope this tip helps.
I also get this crash. I used the update function in one of the other Adobe CS 4 production premium applications to ensure I use the latest version.
It's weird to see that in such a high priced product, I had instant startup crashes in 2 of these applications. The startup crash in Premiere Pro was fixed lately through an update, but Soundbooth wasn't.
I am a software developer with a licensed copy of MSVC Professional, maybe it would be possible to provide you with extended crash information.
My OS I use is: Vista 64
Thank you for your help!

(set display to "tune for best performance" or something like that, I'm running XP not vista

Update to my post: Now that is weird - when I use the "Debugging Tools for Windows (x64)" to load the executable of Soundbooth, I do not get any crash. That would explain, why the devs have such problems tracing this one.
