Please go to
Local Disk C
Adobe Premiere Elements 14
and, in the Adobe Premiere Elements 14 Folder, please find the file name Audio Filters.dll, right click it, and select Properties.
In its Properties/General, what is the Open With program shown?
If you go Properties/Security, how are the permissions set up?
When you did the uninstall reinstall, did you use a cleaner like the free ccleaner CCleaner - Download in between the uninstall and reinstall? Did you do the reinstall with antivirus and firewalls disabled?
I am not Adobe. Just user to user.
Please consider, and then let us know of your progress as your time permits.
thanks for the comments
The permissions on the file are as I would expect for a proper installation. (full for system and installer read and execute for users), and the software does operate for a while so it is not a permissions issue (which should throw a clean error and not just crash anyway) it is something that happens within the program whilst running (a malformed call etc. )
I will not disable the firewall and AV for any installations. no reputable company should put out an install that needs that any more. It has been quite a few years since companies could expect you to do that. if PSE 14 needs that (12 did not) then I will have to revert to12 or use another product, and my registry is OK I do not use that product, but have used similar and PSE actually puts very few keys in the registry anyway.
