    After Effects CS6 Crashing on Startup

    Alwyn Wan

      I formatted my computer a few days ago and just finished setting everything back up. After that I continued to install After Effects CS6. Upon initial launch, I was given errors "Quicktime is not installed on this system...etc..", "After Effects error: Crash in progress. Last logged message was: <4488> <DynamicLink> <5> D:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS6\Support Files\32\dynamiclinkmanager.exe", and "After Effects can't continue: sorry, After Effects has crashed... ( 0::42 ). Finally, I get a Windows Dialogue saying that Adobe After Effects CS6 has stopped working. I don't know why this is happening suddenly, because it worked perfectly before I formatted my computer.


      I have:

      • Reinstalled After Effects
      • Reinstalled Quicktime
      • Updated After Effects
      • Updated Graphics Card Drivers
      • Used the Creative Suite Cleaning Tool and then reinstalled After Effects


      My system specs:

      • Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
      • Intel Core i5 3570K @ 3.4GHz (not overclocked)
      • 16384MB RAM
      • eVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670
      • Intel 520 Series SSD (128GB)
      • Hitachi Green 64MB Cache 1TB SATA Hard Drive
