I have read various posts with various basic problems and solutions to get Premiere Elements functioning without too many glitches to begin with. I was wondering if there was a post with a list of the most common problems and fixes before and immediately after installing the program.
Make sure the computer has enough resources to run the program ie processor speed, memory, hard drive space etc.
Install the program and any patches/updates
Delete the Bad Drivers txt file
Disable Background Rendering
Disable the Organizer
Update or Roll Back Video Card Drivers as necessary
These aren't in any kind of order. I know there are more I've left out but there seem to be the same common basic problems with most of the versions of PrE just to get the program to function on a basic level. Sorry I wish I could be more clear on the matter. I am having glitches with the program and was thinking of reinstalling it, but can't remember all of the tidbits to do over again after I reinstall. If I had a list of the most basic things such as some of the items above which I have done after my first install, I might not have to re-read a bunch of posts.
I'm sure you guys have a list of this stuff in your heads from all of your usage of the program (or reinstallation) and would apply the fixes after installing the program before you even start to use it. What would these basic fixes be?
For general Adobe program installation, I have compiled this Tips & Tricks article: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3419692#3419692
In his PrE books, Steve Grisetti has a very useful set of appendices on setting up one's computer, to run PrE as smoothly, as possible. I find his tips to be very useful.
Good luck, and I am sure that others will have more thoughts on this.
I had already read the message on the installation. My interest was more for what to delete, disable, install after the program is installed. But any answers are appreciated and may help the whole question to be answered
