After taking a look at the crash report, it suggested there was an issue with the memory. I tried several different configurations, only to find that none of the DIMMs were defective. I created a new account on the machine, and launched Flash CS5 without any issues. This suggests that there is something wrong with my initial account that is preventing the software from working.
Does anyone have a clue as to why it will not work on the administrator account?
Ok, I figured out the issue. I figured I'd post the solution here just in case anyone else comes across this problem:
After creating a vanilla account on the machine, Flash CS5 worked just fine, so I know the system configuration was just fine. I also noticed that when I launched CS5, there was no pop-up window that appeared asking which type of file to open. The solution that I encountered was to delete all of the preference folders on the HD for Flash CS5 by removing the following files/folders:
- /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences/Flash CS5 Preferences
- /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences/Flash 11 MRU
- /User/<username>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash CS5/
- /Library/Application Support/Macromedia/FlashAuthor.cfg
Then, I used the disk utility and did a permissions repair on the HD. These two actions together seemed to fix the problem. Hope this helps anyone else who has a similar issue.
