Make sure you run the Reg Giant Link app and check for updates. Make sure AE is up to date. I'm having no problems with Trapcode and CC2014 - 2015.3 ...
BTW, comp size and workflow details would help. There could be something else going on that you have not told us about. The first thing I do when I get an error like this is to start a new standard comp, add one new solid and then the effect giving me problems. If that fails I purge everything, reboot, start a new project and then repeat. If I'm still having problems I carefully analyze and file a detailed bug report.

Solution: uninstall the Trapcode Suite from your Windows Programs, make sure you have version 13.0.3 (which at the time of my writing you find only here: Red Giant - ProductDownloads ) and run the installer AS ADMINISTRATOR. Then install for 2015 AND 2015.3. Don't ask me why, but that was the only way I could make it work.
Easily the worst version update since many years, Adobe and Redgiant, costed me 6 days of productivity.
You are my hero
THANK YOU, MY HERO. iT WORKS THE WAY YOU SAID.THIS HAS BEEN NIGHTMARE.
I'm not sure why yours isn't marked as a solution.
I have been Very unhappy with trapcode's support as well, other than I ended up getting a free upgrade "for my troubles." They forgot to tell people not to upgrade to the latest (not sure when that was) after effects. Once you upgrade, trapcode stopped working. And it didn't say it was incompatible anywhere. Even there support was stumped. Then later on, someone in their office said something like, "Oh, that doesn't work with that version."
After hours of going back and forth installing this/that, uninstalling. Finally he just gave me a code for the current one. Now I got a new computer and got this issue. I followed your instructions and it worked right away.
Other instructions around the internet basically said "update your graphics card driver." Like, a Lot of them. Well, yeah, that doesn't do anything. Perhaps if it's related to an actually corrupt driver, but that is unlikely.
Anyway, your solution worked, and I wanted to thank you for it, and post here to increase this page's search priority for other people having the same issue. It would also help if the original guy would come back here and mark your response Answered.
Hey, Yes, it has been a big problem with Trapcode Particular.I am suprised how Red Giant answered you. They know about this problem. And how to fix it.This solution is right. I had A support guy from Red Giant inside my computers and installed Trapcode Particular.And I see he has installed about same way as Jan says..So there is a big problem with many computers and Trapcode Particular uppgrade.
Jan Seidler1 has a right solution on the problem. Everybody can be sure about it. Therefor I write.
I have got good support on Red Giant. I am sorry you did not met a right support.
