Ok I don't know what happen I use to have cs3 but I deleted it and since then my new cs5 won't open up my session files when I double click... For example I right click and select open with, I browse into the adobe scroll down and select adobe premiere pro from the cs5 folder and it does nothing, it wont even link the open with up, If I open cs5 from the start menu and look for my file to open it will open but as far as double clicking the session i want to open on the desktop it wont do it. Someone help me out here another thing i just ened up doing on accedent is now my computer wants to open the folder session file using Photoshop cs5 uhhg this is getting frustrating!
I'd re-install CS3 and make sure the project isn't corrputed.
But first, I would back up everything.
Good information about drive image backups can be found here:
I want to try that but
"Please Note: We are uploading the latest version of the Adobe Creative Suite Cleaner Tool for Windows shortly."
Heres how things went down...Cs3 kept trying to open my new sessions I did using cs5 so I deleted Cs5 hoping to use OPEN with to link it back up...after a few failed attemps I ended up link photoshop to it now I can't remove photoshop from it qand when I selecet the adobe premiere it does nothing...Im really afraid to uninstall and reinstall because it takes so long to do, will it still accept my serial number if I do a reapair?
Right-click your project file
Select: Open with > Choose default program...
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5\Adobe Premiere Pro.exe
Always use the selected program to open this type of file.
Why not just choose the PRPROJ file from PrPro? That is not a lot of steps, should the file association fail.
+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.
I have tried and tried to edit the registry and Even tried to figure out how to put Adobe Premiere Cs5 In My OTHER PROGRAMS list on my open with couldn't figure it out, I think it has to do with my Adobe for some reason being in my Programs Files Folder rather than my Program files (x86) Folder Maybe I installed it wrong i don't know But After weeks of searching I cound little Program.
It finally let me change File Association and delete my old one So FINALLY I am able to double click my project and open it took about 15 minutes to figure out but Im just glad after months of PHOTOSHOP opening up every time I double clicked that its fixed I Just Had
Donwload the Program Run it
Scroll Down to my .prproj file
Then Edit Selected File type
Under User Choice I Selected Application/adobepremierepro.exe
Then After I selected it it shows up in a second menu on the bottom so
I Double Click it again and Make sure Default Action is Selected
Boom Im back to work....
I wish I would have knew how easy this was weeks ago!
I Hope this Helps Someone else who is having the same problem
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.
