    Premiere Pro crashes on launch




      Recently updated Premier Pro (12)- witch apparently was a huge mistake.

      Had issues with files made in the previous version being totally useless because images and graphics appearing in the wrong places along the timeline almost at random. Had my hopes up when installing an update this morning hoping it would fix this bug. Was instead "treated" with a worse issue:


      When trying to launch Premiere Pro the Application Manager tool starts for a few seconds then crashes, then relaunches premiere pro. This continues in an endless loop and I have to force quit the manager tool at a precise moment to get out of the loop.


      Is there a fix for this?


      Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, rebooting and all the other usual first aid procedures I could think of...


      I now have build 12.1.1

          The patch has been released and live now. This patch includes bug fix related to PNG's and crash.

            Version 12.1.1 still fails to launch normally, you get the The Application Was Unable To Start Correctly(0xc0000005) error.

            However, launching with the right-click option "Run with graphics processor - internal graphics": rather than the high performance NVIDEA option DOES work

              Hi Ray,


              Unfortunately we are still looking into this issue and the fix today does not fix this one.


              Disabling or running application with Intel Graphics is only workaround as of now.

                Its good news that you've solved the issue with the png. Unfortunately have no way of enjoying this since my application still won't launch. I´m stuck in an endless loop with AAM and Premiere Pro crashing as described above.

                  Any chance that what you are chasing will also address the crash in Premier Pro CC? I went to launch today and it crashed. Luckily my co-worker isn't as up-to-date as I am and we were able to get the job done using his version (which hasn't been updated).
