          Did you change something in your sysetm (or QuickTime) configuration; new device, new video board, new codec?

            No I didn't change anything. In the meantime i have uninstalled all items and reinstalled again. Same problem: It freezes at loading status "ExporterQuickTimeHost.bundle. I have to shut down manually the program.

                That helps!


                During OnStartup(), the QuickTime exporter enumerates the available video and audio codecs on the system.


                One of them is hanging.

                  But what do I have to do?

                    Remove codecs until PPro launches successfully. Then put back the other codecs.


                    This may help:

                        that stack trace showed that while ExporterQuickTimeHost.prm was loading it tried to make a C++ class for each QuickTime codec it could find and failed to get memory for it (thus the 0x0 access violation).


                        Looks like you had a wobby system and it finally righted itself. Do you overclock your ram? I'm assuming since it's Mac you do not since it's hard to do.

                          Hey folks, I tried doing all this stuff, but a closer look at my stack indicated that I needed to kill my QT32Server process, which I did by going to Activity Monitor & simply stopping the process from there. Starting up premiere restarted that process and now all is working. Thank goodness!

                            Great news, and thank you for reporting your steps to get things running.


                            Good luck,

                              Did as tententwenty said.


                              As Premiere was hanging on ExporterQuickTimeHost.bundle, I killed the QT32Server process in Activity Monitor.


                              Premiere proceeded with launch.
