Have you tried launching the program while holding down the Ctrl+Alt+Shift keys on the left side of your keyboard (to clear the preferences)?
Also, assuming you're on a Windows machine, have you manually gone to Windows Update to ensure you have all of the available Windows AND Microsoft Updates, including the hidden ones and the non-critical updates that don't install automatically.
What graphics card do you have?
Unfortunately I´m experiencing issues nearly the same like described above.
I have performed the tips mentioned in answers above but nothing helps to resolve the issue.
Details are also described in this thread:
Is there anyone able to support here ?
Any help would be appreaciated.
Please avoid duplicate posts since they tend to confuse the person writing them as well as the people trying to respond to the question.
I have seen the error that you present appear often, but I have not seen an agreed on the resolution, if a resolution at all.
What I would do first is to update your Premiere Elements 12 to 12.1. See the opened project's Help Menu/Updates. If the problem persists after the update to 12.1, then let us look at the Scratch Disk set up and situation.
When you go to Expert workspace, Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks, where are all the categories directed to on the computer hard drive and how much free space is at the location(s)?
Did you install Premiere Elements 12 to its default location or other. If other, where?
There are a lot of Troubleshooting avenues to go down (some old, some new, some questionable), but let us start with the above and then decide what next.
But before all that, please respond to the questions already asked you by SG.
To avoid confusion between the two threads, I'm going to lock this one. Please continue your discussion in your other thread. Thanks.
