If you receive a runtime error on the startup, or entering edit mode from the multi-track mode in Adobe Audition, there is a quick fix. This seems to be a wide spread problem across many of the applications and this applies to any software that runs into the dreaded Runtime error.
Close Adobe Audition, if it hasnt slammed shut already.
Open Windows explorer, right click start and go to explore.
At the top go to Tools/Folder option/view and make sure show hidden files and folders is selected.
Browse to this folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Adobe\Audition\3.0
(Insert profile name or your log on account for user)
Cut and paste all the files in this folder to a folder you create in my documents or somewhere else called AAbackup. This just preserves your files in case you ever want to go back, to broken.
Reopen Adobe Audition and go to work. It will rebuild itself in your profile and correct its own problem.
Happy audio creation!
Hello all. I just started getting Kurt Sultana's runtime error as described above. It's happening after I import a file into Auditon 3.0. It loads into Edit view, then when I ask it to insert into Multitrack, that's as far as it gets. If I click play or try to do anything, I get the runtime error, and that's the end of the session.
Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7438
Vista Home Premium SP1
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-55 1.80 GHz
I recently installed the 3.0.1 patch
Would be so appreciative of any pointers, and also any thoughts as to do I have enough computer to really run Audition 3.0. Getting frustrating.
Hi Eric. This is happening now whether I import an .mp3 or a .wma file. It doesn't matter the source, either (at first I thought it might have something to do with pulling a file off a jump drive, but it happens from files stored on the hard drive,also).
Currently, the operation of importing a file into Audition is the only time I'm seeing a Runtime error. I can't seem to get it to happen doing anything else. I appreciate the difficulty of trying to diagnose something like this from afar, and I do appreciate all the help I can get.
While I do appreciate the help, the situation reached a crisis level and I called Tech Support.
Turns out I needed to re-create the preferences file, as described in this document:
Scroll down to:
5. Re-create the Audition preferences file.
One thing to keep in mind: if you cannot navigate to C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Audition\3.0
youll need to get Windows to show hidden files. Tech Support can talk you through it (a Photoshop expert helped me!)
No runtime error anymoreawaiting next spanner the combination of Vista/Toshiba/Audition have in store for me!
I have tryed reinstalling the software sevral times, in addition I have also tryed installing and reinstauling (all after successfull uninstulations, of corce.) on an external Hard Drive. The error is not intermitant after it appers and dose not go away, even after a reinstulation. I notice that only after a system restore and fresh copy ofinternet phone, new instulation, dose the error go's away. I have repeted this process sevral times to see if I can find a patturn. I notice that the error begins occering after one or both of the fallowing two conditions occure, wether the instulation is on my pc or on my external HDD (hard drive): 1) After downloading the therd catalog and before starting the forth catalog download within Stellarium, than closing the software fallowed by restarting windows than relaunching the software. 2) After canceling a previously started download of a catalog within Stellarium. Note: In both cases, the error dosen't always occer right away.
