    PRE8 Organizer won't open-Win7


      For some reason Organizer won't open. Crashes when I try to open it, eithe from startup menu or within program.


      Tried restarting the program and the computer several times.

      The problem started occurring when I had just imported several HD vids into the gallery and then clicked the Organizer button while the program was "conforming media". Not sure if that has anything to do with it.


      Brand new PC, Win 7, 8 core Intel with 1.5TB HD and 8Gigs RAM.


      Organizer crashed a few times before but would start working again somehow. Not this time.


      Any help would be appreciated.

          I do not use Organizer, so cannot offer help there, but for some background on Conforming, and Indexing, Wil Renczes, from Adobe, has published a good piece, quoted in this ARTICLE. He published that in the PrPro forum, but about everything applies to PrE, as well.


          Good luck, and I am sure that others can directly address your Organizer issue.

            Do you or did you ever have a previous version of the Organizer installed on this computer?

              No previous version installed. It was the original PRE8 installation. Just decided to stop working?!


              Here's a portion of the crash report:

                Try going to C:/DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS/OWNER/APPLICATION DATA/ADOBE/ELEMENTS ORGANIZER and rename the 8.0 folder as "8.0OLD". (The file location may be a bit different in Windows 7, but you should be able to find it.)


                Then relaunch the Organizer.

                  The drivers on this PC will therefore be out of date (as manufacturers prepare 'master disks' many months before product launch).


                  • Install all Windows Updates.

                  • Install latest version of Apple QuickTime (v7.6.8 at time of writing). Even if you don't use QuickTime, PRE relies heavily on it.

                  • Install most recent graphics and sound drivers from the manufacturers web sites.
                  • Run Disk Cleanup.
                  • Run Defragmenter.
                  • Temporarily disable any anti-virus realtime scanning.
                  • Use the GSpot Codec Information Utility to analyse the file and post screen image.

                    Hi Jon,

                    have the same problem with the Elements 8.0 Organizer, couldn't open them.

                    Same Error report occurs with "0x005ceccf" message.

                    Did you solved the problem?

                    You got the tip to renew the updates from driver, Windows and so on.

                    Do you have a successful result?
