    My After Effects CS5 crashed and won't restart

      My battery died on my laptop while AF CS5 was running (I thought it was plugged in). It had been running fine up till then.


      When I plugged the machine in and started AF, I got the error message:


      "After Effects error: Crash in progress. Last logged message was: <4788> <DynamicLink><5>C\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\Adobe\DynamicLink\CS5|dynamiclinkmanager.exe"


      After clicking on OK, I get the error:


      "After Effects can't continue: sorry, After Effects has crashed. See http://www.adobe.com/support/products/aftereffects.html for Adobe nTechnical Support (2). (0 :: 42)"


      I restarted the machine and AF, but get the same error message. All of the other Production Premium Suite programs still run fine.


      I reinstalled AE CS5 from the CD, but still the same problem.


      I have emailed Adobe, but have not heard back yet. Any Ideas?
