This is typically a C++ error and your best bet is to visit the Microsolt site and download the latest software, but make sure you use the correct version for your OS. There are many versions around, so only get the one for your OS. Typically this would be for Win 7 64. The normally required C++ libraries are installed with CS5, unless you have anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-somthing turned on during installation.
I have this problem too.
Using a dual quad core 2.5 Dell T7400, 20 gigs of RAM, 10,000 rpm esata drives interanally striped for Raid 0 as my project drive and a Quadro 3800 card.
I get the same C++ warning just after the render starts and PPro CS-5 unexpectedly quits. I have re-nstalled the software, I do noty have anti-anything on the computer, and even after going to microsoft and getting the C++ library for Windows 7 64-bit, this still crashes.
Has aanyone else had this problem? Is there a known fix or workaround?
Is your software, windows and premere, legit? I mean it is not pirated?
Yes it's a legal copy. Everything I have on the computer is legit here at work. I've never liked building an editor on my Dell machine. I always seem to have various errors no one else seems to have. I don't use security software on it, no email and limited internet activity except to update programs. Most of the time the machine and Premiere behaves well. Even editing goes great, but the time line render is impossible. I use the most Current Cineform plugin and edit both HDV and converted Canon 7D footage. In either fashion, rendering doesn't work. Even without the Cineform plug-in, just using the presets from Adobe, I can't render out a file. Very Frustrating.
In your sequence settings, what is your preview codec set to? What sequence presets are you using?
The Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.2) update and corresponding updates from BlackMagic, CIneform, and other third parties should have fixed this error in many cases. Let us know after installing these updates whether you still get this error.
