I was running CS6 on Window 7 Home Premium. I upgraded my system to Windows 8 Pro and those 4 programs hang when trying to load. For AE it hangs at Initialize MediaCore, PR and AME hang at ExporterAVI.prm, and EN hangs once the application launches. I've uninstalled and reinstalled CS6, I'm uninstall Magic Bullet, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled Quicktime. I've also given the program permission through the firewall as listed in the help guide from Adobe. Can anyone assist?
I uninstalled my add on codecs (Lagarith, Avid DNxHD, BlackMagic, and Quicktime), all the programs loaded up. After Effects gave a pop up that it was missing Quicktime. Going to try loading Quicktime 7.6 which was recommended by another user to see if it continues to work.
Loaded Quicktime 7.6 and Avid DNxHD. Everything is now working normally.
I'd 'refresh(charm->change pc settings->general)' or 'remove and reinstall' windows 8 if I were you, since upgrading to w8 from w7 made a lots of errors and BSOD(driver-related) for me. You have to install programs again even if you choose refresh. Sooner or later you'll face some errors... or not.
