I just wanted to post something here to help out anyone who is running Windows Vista 64-bit with Production Premium CS3.
Both AE CS3 & Bridge CS3 work fine - however when I have bridge open first and then launch after effects, after effects constantly crashes on the title screen.
After looking for several fixes for this, I tried closing bridge. After that I was able to launch AE CS3 just fine. I can then re-open bridge and both programs run just fine.
Another one of those weird quirks. Hope this helps someone out.
