    Owl Orphanage Error


      I try to start up Premiere CS4 and I get the infamous Owl Orphanage Error. It says that there's something wrong with handlertitler.dll.


      I read another discussion with someone who had a similar problem with PS and someone suggested to delete the said plug-in. However, when I tried it, I couldn't start up the program because the plug-in was missing.


      Please help. I beg you.

          Hold down the SHIFT key while starting PR, untill the splash screen disappears. That will reset your plug-ins cache.

            I would do a Repair Install of PrPro, if Harm's "Prefs trashing" does not work. A Repair Install will survey your installation and will add missing components, and also repair corrupted ones.


            To me it's sad, thinking about those poor orphaned owls...


            Good luck,




            PS - not with PrPro, but with another Adobe program, I had to Copy a .dll from another machine, and manually replace it. Even Repair Install (my go to action) kept missing the bad .dll.
