Hi, kari. PRE has its own forum and you'll find more people there who can help with this. I'll move your post there for you.
Welcome to the forum.
I am not familiar with that particular error, but from the rest of the text mentioned in it, it seems that a Library (usually a .dll file), did not install properly, and PrE cannot find it. I would uninstall PrE, and then re-install it, making sure that no other programs, like anti-virus, etc., is running - less likely on a Mac, than on a PC, but still, during installation, I would turn OFF anything else. Test.
Adobe offers a 30-day, money-back guarantee, from date of purchase, so you have a month to explore the program. Just watch the calendar, if you decide to return the program.
I did uninstall version 8 twisely and same error with version 8 and now it continues with version 11
Though not for PrE, that error seems to point to an issue with the OpenGL driver for an AMD/ATI video card, as per this thread: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lr4_crashs_with_loadlibrary_failed_w ith_error_126_on_video_playback
That was for Lightroom, and I found similar for Photoshop. All point to the AMD driver, and the OpenGL support. Do you have an AMD/ATI video card, say in the Radeon line?
With Mac's, the video drivers are usually updated, when one updates the Mac OS (that driver update is a separate operation on a PC), so if you have not updated your Mac OS, I would do that first.
it seems that similat problen in version 8 and 11
I had Win 7 / 64 bit
update to Win 8 Pro
Yes AMD / Ati Radeon HD 4650
As AMD/ATI makes video cards for both PC and Mac, I could well imagine that there could be an issue with the OpenGL video driver, on each platform.
Does your Mac have an AMD/ATI video card/chip? Did you PC have an AMD/ATI video card/chip?
[Edit] I see that we were typing at the same time. With the Radeon card/chip, I would make sure to have the updates for your Mac OS. Not knowing Mac's, I do not know if you can download and install just the AMD/ATI driver on a Mac. Maybe a Mac-user can help us both here.
I did install latest driver for AMD / Ati, does not help, it seems so
now I know were it is? Presume
As funny, to day Lightrooms did not show any problem, when I did run a video, but it used iTunes in its runs
now next step
and a solution if any
Ah, another thread pointing to the AMD/ATI driver. Thanks for posting that link.
Seems that there is a problem with the driver.
Good luck to the OP,
First: Thank you:
I succeed, finally, after few uninstalling/ installing driver and software
/Adobe Pre 11: in differennt order:
AMD/Ati monitor driver run to dating new correct one did not help,
( I had Win7/64 running (pure install with all software), Win8/64 changed
plenty drivers to "her" own General Drivers (Microsoft), what is wrong!!!! )
so I delete monitor driver twice!! First delete did not help, so I delete
again all and run hard disk defrag, re delete driver and forced system to
load AMD/Ati win8 driver and reboot and re install Adobe Premiere 11 again
and after that, now call for error 126, so software works also in video
Thank you help
even my explain may not be so clear, but now ok
(Must say, anyway, plenty "rabbish" is in Windows8 now in, when looking in,
but too sensitive to delete similarities away, when the order of
similarities (what is a last one) is not clear and it is not same order
with Windows in different installations)
AsusTek informs for 3 year old motherboard, no win8 correction coming,
suggest to delete softwares, in question, huh huh.
It seems Win8 is also now working properly like when I open from Start
window Worktable, appears an error AsusSetup does not support this
operating system: WNT_6.2P_64_MCE
Windows 8 Pro /64 and
are still far from pre-co-opertion for a client
Thank you Adibo, now, first time I did get a proper assistance for software

Sorry for the issues that you have had. I am still waiting to read more reports from the field, before I move to Win8. For an OS, I usually wait until at least the first SP for it, from MS. I find that new OS's do have "growing pains," and no longer wish to devote a lot of time troubleshooting my OS.
Good luck & happy editing,
As mentioned in another post - the 126 error is caused by the Win8 standard driver (and of course Premiere).
Without uninstalling Premiere, just download the ATI Legacy Driver for Win8, install "Caralyst", which will restore the ATI driver for Win8 applications. Then restart Premiere.
The ATI legacy driver for Win8 appears to function for all Win8 programs and added software.
