When I start AE, it keeps asking for my system password and then installing "additional effects and tools." I click OK to re-start AE as it suggests (see screen shot below) and it does it again next time. Any ideas?
I'm using AE 10.5.0.253, part of CS5.5. I have 8gb of ram. My Mac system is Snow Leopard. 10.6.8, I'm on a MacBook Pro, 2.66GHz Core i7.
You have a permissions issue and the install can never properly finish becaucse it cannot write. Launch AE as admin/ root user and/or verify permissions on the Applications folder as well as Library:Application Support:Adobe folders and so on.
