So, did you have a previoius version of After Effects installed on the MBP prior to installing the Production Premium?
If so, check out this post from Chris Prosser.
I'm not familiar with your comment concerning Rosetta. I'm not sure how it would be relevant.
there were no previous versions of ae installed on the mbp. but, after uninstalling and reinstalling...twice, it now works.

Within Snow Leopard, Apple mistakenly has After Effects listed as an application that requires Rosetta. To satisfy this bogus requirement, Rosetta has to be installed for After Effects to work. Silly, but true.
I am having the exact same issue as the original poster -- must be a bug inherent in the latest OSX update, because AE was working fine for me when I first installed it a couple months ago.
Will try the Rosetta solution later and see what happens.
No dice! AE still bounces in the dock but doesn't actually launch, even with Rosetta installed. Help!!
same here. tried this:
> echo Rosetta installed: $( f=/var/db/receipts/com.apple.pkg.Rosetta; [ -e "$f.plist" ] && defaults read "$f" InstallDate || echo Never )
and it returned:
> Rosetta installed: 2009-12-02 17:33:24 +1100
so the problem is not rosetta, but could be related to whether AE thinks it is installed...
Not sure bout OP, but you might wanna try trashing your After Effects Preference file.
