Maybe try importing the project into a new one, or opening an Auto-Save version.
No the entire program will no longer open, every time i go to the main start up screen, error messages pop up. I can't open anything inside premiere pro CS3. I never had this problem before and it continues to happen.
You could try starting Premier while holding down SHIFT. This clears the plugin cache.
do other adobe apps work OK?
>No the entire program will no longer open
That's actually a good thing. Worst case scenario is you have to wipe the hard drive and reinstall everything, which should correct even the worst program corruption.
But if the project get's corrupted, well...it's happened that people have lost hundreds of hours of work and had to start from scratch.
...or don't provide details and people can make wild guesses. ;)
Ok i looked at the Troubleshooting site Eddie gave me, and tried to answer the questions as best i could.
Never used any Adobe Beta software.
I freed up a lot of space off of my hard drive, i only had like 5GB-10GB left, but it still worked when having such low space
I did a disk clean up as well as disk defragment, and moved a lot of high GB files over to my second hard drive. i have over 27GB of free storage left now, its a 150GB hard driver. should i have more?
I Tried holding down the Shift button, but didn't help
I tried to open up Encore Cs3 which came with Premiere, i barely ever used this one, but its funny how this wont work either. I think i used it once before and it worked. But it old how none of my Cs3 Programs. never installed On location.
also this isn't a pirated copy or anything, i bought it as an Upgrade from Amazon back in the spring. Upgrading from Premiere Pro 1.5 which also wasn't pirated, i got that as a gift.
My older version of Premier, 1.5 still works, and my older versions of Photo shop (CS?) and After effects (6.5) still work. So that's good. Just having a problem with Cs3 :(

sorry that i haven't answered all the questions on the Trouble shooting, i'm still going through them and testing everything.
I think Jim's worst case scenario is the best approach.
I tired opening just the project in the saved project folder, i don't get the error message but nothing ever shows up and it freezes. How do i open an auto save version?
The same way you open any other project.
but i can't open a project... because it always has a error message during the start up menu every time i try. The Same thing happens when i select the project in the adobe folder, it opens premiere pro then during the start up screen it will always get the same bunch of error messages... i hit ok and it closes the program down completely. there is no way around it, and just happened one day randomly... I can't open anything within the program because i'm not able to access the start up menu..
Harm is saying it may be best to wipe your hard drive and reinstall everything from the ground up, including Windows. (After backing up all critical files, of course.)
I need to wipe my hard drive?? is that what you think it could be? a windows Vista problem? How would i clear it anyways? I don't want to clear my hard drive then have it repeat the same problem.
by the way what's the better operating System for useing Premiere Pro CS3, Vista or XP?? cause i have both but have never used CS3 for XP yet.
CS3 with XP.
>I don't want to clear my hard drive then have it repeat the same problem.
That is the chance you take. My guess is the issue will resolve, but there are no guarantees...
I am having the same problem any answer?? I am on a mac.
If you get a PC, follow the suggestions above. If not, I can't help you. Luckily I'm not familiar with Mac.
Before you wipe your system hard drive, you might try something less drastic, at least as a short term solution so you can finish your project. When you have used more than 80% of the drive capacity, you are inviting performance problems. Can you clear off any apps or anything from that drive at least temporarily to get the usable drive space back to a reasonable level? You may need to uninstall some applications, but you need to get your space down to 50% or less of used space if possible. If you can unload the drive a bit, then uninstall some things starting with the Adobe stuff, clean the registry, and try a fresh install of the Adobe apps you need for the project.
However, if you absolutely have to keep everything you have on that drive on it at all times, then you need a bigger drive. In that case, and probably for the long run, you will end up having to do what they say. But not just to stay with the same drive size, or you will soon be right back where you are now.
I have exactly same problem. After I re-installed my windows and premiere CS3. Premiere was working just fine couple of days, until today same problem strikes back. So now i'm back to square one.
Either you messed up or the system is not adequate.
I'm pretty sure that i didn't mess up. Becouse i've install it two times and it works fine atleast in the beginning.
What do you mean "system is not adequate"?
Do you mean min. requirements? Or something else? How i can check this?

If it worked before and does not now, YOU have done something to mess it up.
