    "Adobe Elements has stopped working" during DV capture


      After not using Elements for a couple of months, I recently tried to open a new project and cannot capture DV footage when adding media. I can add pictures and music, but every time I try to add DV material, I get the message, "Adobe Elements 12 has stopped working, a problem caused the program to stop working correctly."


      I tried the below tactics without any success:


      1. I removed contents in media cache files (also removed every item in media cache folder)
      2. unistalled and reinstalled program many times
      3. updated graphics card drivers
      4. reverted graphics card to 2016 setting (tried all 3 versions listed below)
      5. reinstalled with a different user name
      6. did disk cleanup and defrag
      7. removed Adobe Premiere Elements pref file
      8. switched project destination from C:\ to external drive
      9. right-clicked on program icon to run as administrator
      10. removed Adobe Flash player and rebooted

      Any assistance from an Adobe Moderator that has prior experience with this common issue would be very much appreciated.
