What happens when you run the application as administrator? (Right click, "run as administrator")
Thanks for getting back to me - the same thing unfortunately. Completely unresponsive and shoved into the corner like that.
Three things you can do. One, you can right click on the shortcut that launches the program and in the run drop down menu item, choose "maximized" see if that frees it up.
The other is watch the application in the resource monitor. Click the Start Orb and enter RESMON into the search bar to find it. Look for the premiere app in the resource list under the CPU tab. Right click on it and select ANALYZE WAIT CHAIN. This will let you know if its waiting for another process to complete. If it says running normal, then it not a process issue and might to have to do with security preventing it (which might explain the user account issue). In which case, temporarily disable UAC, reboot, and try running it again.
Running as maximized doesn't make a difference unfortunately - however the RESMON option produced some possibly useful results - in place of where I assume it should say it's running normally, it says "One or more threads of Adobe Premiere Pro.exe are waiting to finish network I/O."
In the box below it lists the threads as:
Adobe Premiere Pro.exe (PID: 3908) Thread: 2412
Adobe Premiere Pro.exe (PID: 3908) Thread: 6044
L Adobe Premiere Pro.exe (PID: 3908) Thread: 3116
What would be the next move in this case?
I have a hunch that the program is waiting for you to choose an option in the action dialog box when it starts up. That would explain the dinging sound when you click on the main app window, as the action dialog box window is hidden.
Try this. Navigate to the premiere project file itself (or any project created with PPro CS6) and double click on it or choose "open with", that should fire up PPro and bypass that option box.
