Nobody can tell you anything without exact system info or other technical details like the actual crash info.
when i run after effect cc2017 My lap freeze all
before with old version work good
only after effect is hang the lap
Oh I apologize, I'm running Windows 10 (x64). As per crash info it simple just state that the program stops working as soon as I try to open preferences. Is there a crash report I can get or other information that could be useful?
Thank u for ur replay

My windows Is 8.1 (x64)
please read this: Known issues in After Effects CC 2017 this is a bug in the current version.
you need to reset your preferences:
Cmd+Alt+Shift and click twice to launch the App. you will be presented with a window to reset your preferences. click OK.
another way to reset your preferences is to delete of rename the preferences file that is located here:
- (Windows) \Users\[user_name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects\[version]
- (Mac OS) /Users/[user_name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe/After Effects/[version]
delete this file:
I've done that before creating this post, I deleted the preferences files and even reinstalled and re-elected the file again. But still no success of getting into preferences. I just need to access my audio hardware cause I can't hear anything at the moment in my projects.
I install adobe aftereffect cs6 and encoder cd6 also . after that adobe after effects cc2017 work but reference file not found i prepared it and uninstall aftereffect cs6 again .
It is work good now
Hi Mika Beach,
Did you ever solve your issue? Please let us know what happened so we can mark your issue as resolved.
2017 crashing constantly here (Retina iMac late 2014, 32gb ram, Sierra). Seems to be to do with reorganising windows and workspaces. Very annoying and stress inducing.
Sorry to hear about this crashing. You're on Mac OS, it seems. It's possible you need to correct folder permissions on your Adobe folders if the situation has gotten worse since you updated your OS. Check out this doc: Premiere Pro CC, CC 2014, or 2014.1 freezing on startup or crashing while working (Mac OS X 10.9, and later)
It may help the crashing situation. If it does, please let us know. If not, return to the thread so we can get you further help.
I can't replicate your issue. Can you give us more info on your system, media, and version of After Effects?
Win7 64x, GTX850M, 16gb ram, intel i5-4210M. Can't open any media in AE - it just crashes as soon as it gets past the splash screen and loads the windows. Version is the most recent, I guess that's CC 2017 14.1. This has only been happening recently, the past week-ish. Resetting preferences seems to fix it and then remaking my workspace, but upon closing and opening AE again the issue occurs (meaning I'd have to endlessly remake my workspaces - unless there's a way of exporting/importing after resetting prefs?)
There's no error message or anything, just the windows "After effects has run into a problem and crashed" etc message.

14.1 is not the latest version.
14.2 came out in April.
I have heard of other people having workspace issues. Do you have MIDAS installed? (It's a third party extension from Mt. Mograph.) Some people found removing it let them launch AE.
AE for me also loads but crashes unless i load AE with ctl+alt+shift to reset preferences. Anyone know if there is a fix in the works or is it something with my system?
(Was working fine this morning then the problem started a few hours later. Adobe support renamed the preferences file and that got it loading - hence my fix to reset preferences upon AE startup but problem persists every startup unless preferences are reset)

Are you using any third-party extensions or scripts? Are you modifying your workspaces or layouts at all?
Since I reinstall my windows and updated all adobe softwares, including After Effects, who starts and crash every single time.
For me changing the compatibility mode to win 7 solve the problem.
I too am Having this same issue.
It crashes on startup. I use some customer UI panels and have for years.
I have ro rebuild the layout everyday.
I can have the same set up on an iMac and it works perfectly. On windows it's an nightmare
scripts are all from aescripts and are the latest versions
explore shape layers
reposition anchor point
ray dynamic color
& rubber hose 2 (battlaxe.co)
and also extensis univeral type client - Its for work. So I have to use that
win 10 - latest build
alienware 4.2 ghz i7
64 gb dd4 ram
gtx 1070 8gb
its a nightmare!
How are those third-party scripts docked in your interface? I was in a discussion with some folks and it seems to matter HOW they are docked. If you have the panels floating, there seems to be no problem. If they're docked, it seems to matter if they're "stacked" or not. Try changing that up.
Also, try just changing to a default layout before you close AE.
I solved this problem running After Effects in compatibility mode with windows 7.
