On a Windows XP system, if I open a .fla with a user
(non-admin) account, Flash CS3 crashes instantly.
If I run the application as admin (logged in with the same
user account) using the Run as... command, the crashes do no
happen. Obviously the user's preferences / registry data is causing
the crashes. How should I proceed to clean them if I want to get
rid of the crashes?
I've been having the same problem on my Vista system except
that I had to use the hidden Administrator account to use the
program. I seem to have fixed the problem by deleting the Flash
Configuration folder in my user account. Not sure where it is on
XP, but on Vista it's at C:\users\MY-NAME\AppData\Adobe\Flash
CS3\en\Configuration it should be somewhere in the Documents and
Settings folder on XP.
