    yann mallard Level 1





      Installed the trial of CS5,

      and few days after using it got this crash opening message.

      Unable to open after effect


      I uninstalled all the suite.

      re-installed > same crash.


      un-installed the Black Magic extreme hd driver > same crash


      un-installed the video card driver, put some new and fresh one > same crash


      Went to a nice trip into the registry  >  remove all the un-necessary bits lefts over by the CS5 suite in the system.



      re-install the suite.

          Your program is quietly crashing on exit and continually damaging the prefs or another configuration file. Hard to say why, but definitely check your system event log. Might be a combination of your cards, might be something totally different...

            >>  un-installed  the  application...


            problem was still there.


            remove in the registry >   EVERY THING THAT WAS   CS5  related !



            installed the application.


            WORKS FINE ! ...




            because of the pluggins situation i kept CS4  to  do  the  work.




            and when sapphire released the CS5  version  >  OK  !  we purchased  the license for it  !

            I barly used since then, focusing on finishing some prod with a safe CS4 .



            And then today !...


            THE same problem is back !...



            here is the APPLICATION EVENT VIEWER LOG


            Faulting application name: AfterFX.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x4bb2fd36

              I look on the forum, and being apparently the only one experimenting this issue...


              I realized maybe it s because of the trial ...


              I installed the trial version of CS5  production and used it for a month and had those opening crash issues.


              then we bought the released version.  We received the DVD box. ok...


              BUT since i had to deliver some work, i kept CS4 with all the plugins working to be safe.


              Later instead of un-installing the trial and installing the DVD, I decided to just put the serial number of the purchased CS5  on  the trial installed.


              Ok it works for a few days...  and then... again this crash at the opening came back...


              may be it s because of this trial situation.


              so... I will give a try un-installing the trial...  use the DVD and see what happens...



              maybe the DVD version is more "stable" than the trial  ...

                Not to steal the thread - but I am getting exactly the same error.
