Run the updater to make sure your AME is the up to date.
Trash your preferences user documents>Adobe>Premiere Pro>4.0. Take the 4.0 folder to the trash. Ditto for the Media Encoder
Restart the PC
Give it a go.
Hope this helps,

Do you have only one disk? Premiere minimum specifications require two disks and the second should be a true 7200 rpm disk not USB or Firewire.
If Bill is correct and you have only one disk that is over 80% filled, it is like a snail hitting the brakes before cornering: Disastrously slow.
Get at least two additional 7200 RPM SATA disks.
My apologies for the slow response. Upgraded computer to Windows Vista 64 bit, added 2 7200rpm SATA 1.5 TB drives, set up as a RAID0, and things appear to be working great. Ran the project, in transcoded/burned to DVD just fine.
Thanks for the help and suggestions! Much better assistance here than through Adobe Support!
Very good. Glad to hear it!
I consistently have the same problem - pproheadless.exe error when encoding longer pieces. I use a hp xw workstation, 3 internal hard drives (all 7200 rpm), 3 gb ram running windows xp pro 32bit. I also have a hp pavillion dv7, windows 64 bit, windows 7, intel i7, cpu Q720 @ 1.60 ghz 1.60 ghz.
On my xp, hp xw workstation I have to run selective start up and somthing else that I am forgetting now that simplified what was running on the computer. I occasionally use an external drive (7200 rpm eSATA or firewire) to house my video and keep the project on my root drive.
Well I guess you are not running CS5 as you have a 32-bit OS so you are in the wrong forum and never, never run a project from the root drive.
I am not running cs5 yet - still cs4. I'll wait this time for others to work out the bugs. Let me clarify, on my desktop - windows XP, 32 bit, I have 3 internal hard drives. I usually have the project on my "media" drive (drive 2) and then export out to my "export" drive (drive 3). My os is on my C drive. My laptop - hp dv7 has one large hard drive. I usually have the project on the c drive in documents and use an external hard drive as the scratch disc (for all the assests). Are these configurations "kosher"?
P.S. I could not find the CS4 forum - I looked again, I found the forum for CS4, sorry.
