    I'd re-install CS3 and make sure the project isn't corrputed.

    But first, I would back up everything.

    You could try:

    Deactivate

    Uninstall CS

    Clean Script (at least twice, three is better)

    Reinstall

    You could try:

    Launch Premiere

    Navigate to your project

    Open

    That's a Windows "File Association" problem.

    You need to fix that in the OS.

    Right-click your project file

     

    Select: Open with > Choose default program...

     

    Browse to:
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5\Adobe Premiere Pro.exe

     

    Check:
    Always use the selected program to open this type of file.

     

    Click ok.

    Why not just choose the PRPROJ file from PrPro? That is not a lot of steps, should the file association fail.

     

    Good luck,

    +1 Absolutely agree.

     

    Especially when all current projects are right in your face when PPRO loads up

    I bet that you'll only have to open that project from within Premiere once. Then if you save it, we'll be able to open it directly next time.

    One of the issues with legacy projects is the need for CS5 to convert them.

    Glad that you got it sorted out.

     

    Many programs will seize file type associations for themselves, so one must be very careful, when installing them. Going back some version, Apple's QT Player used to do this, upon install. It would associate itself with almost any media file type, even if it could not Open those file types. It has gotten better lately, as it allows the user to limit which files it would associate to itself. Others are not so good, and still grab every possible file type for themselves, regardless of what the user had chosen, or what earlier programs had done.

     

    Always look behind any program install, to make sure that the file type associations have not been changed.

     

    Good luck,

     

    Hunt
