Well, I thought my post was clear. Please forgive me.
I have searched this forum to see if anyone else has had the same issue. I have not found an answear. I will try agin.
I can export my ppro project to adobe media encoder yet when I choose the format: windows media - ppro crashes. Every other format works fine.
How can I export my project to a wmv file?
Source material, project settings, OS, hardware setup, drivers, just to name a few missing links.
After another 20 questions you may get the picture or we will in order to help you.

I am not sure where to find info about the drivers.

One file is 30fps.

Is this enough info?

That's one potential issue. CS3 is rated for 32 bit only.
Export with AME to Video for Windows with what codec and settings. I assume you export 320x180, but use WMV .... or something else with what settings?
Yes that is true yet everything else in CS3 works fine.
64k computers run 32k applications extremely well.
I tried exporting the project to a windows media file in After Effects. AE crashed also.
Maybe there is something about 64k computers & exporting to windows media!

Yes, they are being replaced by Commodore 64's or was it Altairs? Anyway, the price is being reduced from 64K to around 0.064K to keep them competitively priced to the Commodores.
I am not sure I understand what you mean.
I have tried creating new projects with various Presets- then I modified the presets in: Custom settings.
EG: I start with a new project:
Preset: HDV720p 30fps or DV NTSC or a preset for a mobile device.
In custom settings: I changed the editing mode to: desktop, change the Frame size to 320x180, square pixels, etc
Still in Project settings:
Video Rendering: I use video for windows,
Compressor: none or I try Uncompressed UYVY 422 8 bit.
So in my project settings I do not use any compression.
Now the project settings are set, I am finished editing and I am ready to export. Every export format works fine until:
I open AME, I change the format from eg: h.264 or whatever- to windows media, then PPro crashes.
I can export to all the other formats in AMD except windows media.
I hope I am not to confusing!
What Harm & others are saying is that CS3 is not certified to run on any 64BIT (not 64k) operating system
That means you may or may not have problems... but the product is not designed for a 64Bit OS, so some or all may not work correctly
It just seemed odd that every other format works fine.
Oh well, I do have other work arounds. It just takes alot longer.
I have to render the project out to an avi. then bring it into windows media encoder (32bit) and re-render.
Thanks you to everyone for all of your help.
>64k computers run 32k applications extremely well.
That seems to vary by program and user. It's not at all impossible for using a 64 bit OS to be the culprit here.
J.Charette, "Export to windows media encoder-PPro crashes" #, 15 Jan 2009 12:24 pm
This thread is getting a bit old now but I'm now having the exact same problem as J.Charette. I think I may have some light to shed on it as well. I was successfully running CS3 master collection and exporting to WMV files in PPro/AE for the past year under XP64. I was given a new computer (again XP64) and didn't have any problems until I installed Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 64 (I used to use the 32 bit version successfully and this time figured I'd just get the 64 bit one instead).
Now that I've installed WME I can't export as WMV from any AE/PPro CS3. As soon as AME comes up with the format selection screen, if I select WMV from the drop down box it immediately crashes. I've tried uninstalling WME, reinstalling it and even uninstalling WME & CS3 and reinstalling from scratch. Still doesn't work.
In my case at least, there is a definite correlation between installing WME64 and its interaction with Adobe Media Encoder... Anyone have any suggestions? It seems to me there must be some registry setting / config file for AME that is causing it to try to use WME64 for something which causes a crash (since 32 and 64 bit apps can't call each other).
