    AE CS5 says missing component and refuses to fireup




      after effects could not start because a required component could not be found. this may be because of a damaged installation or unsupported operating system. Please consult the minimum requiremtns of re install After Effects. (998)


      thats the error message i get.


      i tried uninstalling AE and reinstalling. (i tried that several times)

      then i used the adobe support advisor, which directed me to a page that suggested me to uninstall and delete the adobe folders and reinstall. i uninstalled the entire production premium package deleted the "adobe" folder from my program files folder and re-installed. this time it failed to install flash catalyst.

      but rest of the applications run fine.

      just AE wont run! this is the primary application i am using.


      any help would be much appreciated.



      i am running this in windows 7

      and on a dell precision workstation.
