    Projects opening with Photoshop and Not Premiere?

    aarongabbard

      When I get done with a file and try to go back to it it opens with Photoshop cs5 instead of Premiere Pro Cs5

       

      Here are things I have tried to do to fix it

       

      Right clicked it and tried to OPEN with Adobe Premeiere from the Programs menu Wouldn't work, Unclicked Always use Selected Program, But Still it didnt show up under the recommended programs...

       

      Ive run Sypybot and Malware Programs No viruses or anything on it

       

      tried System Restore It Didnt help Either

       

      My Problem seems to be all of My Premiere pro Files are all associated with Photoshop it wasn't like this when I first installed it.

       

      I went in and did a repair that didnt work either Ive been struggling with this problem for months

       

      I then tried several Programs that was suppose to remove association type but it still has the Photoshop icon and still opens with photoshop

       

      I don't want to run a clean install because It takes way to long so what can I do?

          Sounds like you need a registry modification.  I do not know where it was but recently I believe on this forum someone had a similar problem.  Try searching this forum for some keywords like registry or file associations

            The following should fix the problem. Note that I take no responsibility for  what this does or may do, so you're on your own. I have had no problems with  it, but that is no guarantee of anything.

             

            Create  a new text document (name it whatever you like), and change the  extension to .reg; this will specify it as a Windows registry file  entry. Copy and paste the following into the document:

             

            Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
            
            [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project]
            @="Adobe Premiere Project"
            
            [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project\DefaultIcon]
            @="\"C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5\\Adobe Premiere Pro.exe\",1"
            
            [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project\shell]
            @=""
            
            [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project\shell\open]
            
            [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project\shell\open\command]
            @="\"C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5\\Adobe Premiere Pro.exe\" \"%1\""
            
            [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project]
            @="Adobe Premiere Project"
            
            [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project\DefaultIcon]
            @="\"C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5\\Adobe Premiere Pro.exe\",1"
            
            [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project\shell]
            @=""
            
            [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project\shell\open]
            
            [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Adobe.Premiere.Pro.Project\shell\open\command]
            @="\"C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5\\Adobe Premiere Pro.exe\" \"%1\""
            
            

             

            Save the file, and then simply double-click it. A  dialog will appear asking if you want to add this information to the  registry--click Yes if you do (which I assume is why you're asking).  This will reassign the extension to the shell command to open a .prproj  file to Premiere Pro CS5--nothing more.

             

            Again, I accept no responsibility for this if it melts your hard drive, calls you names, and kicks you in the shin. Registry hackery is not for the faint-of-heart, but in terms of potential for mishap, this rates about a 1.2 on a scale of 10.

              I have tried and tried to edit the registry and Even tried to figure out how to put Adobe Premiere Cs5 In My OTHER PROGRAMS list on my open with couldn't figure it out, I think it has to do with my Adobe for some reason being in my Programs Files Folder rather than my Program files (x86) Folder Maybe I installed it wrong i don't know But After weeks of searching I cound this little Program.

               

              It finally let me change File Association and delete my old one So FINALLY I am able to double click my project and open it took about 15 minutes to figure out but Im just glad after months of PHOTOSHOP opening up every time I double clicked that its fixed I Just Had

               

              Donwload the Program Run it

              Scroll Down to my .prproj file

              Then Edit Selected File type

              Under User Choice I Selected Application/adobepremierepro.exe

              Then After I selected it it shows up in a second menu on the bottom so

              I Double Click it again and Make sure Default Action is Selected

               

              Boom Im back to work....

               

              I wish I would have knew how easy this was weeks ago!

                Thanks For the Info I Tried that before and It still didn't help But I finally figured it out with another program and It seemed to clear everything up

                    You sure did not install it wrong.  With the new 64-bit Windows any program that is 64-bit gets installed on the Program Files directory, and any 32-bit program gets installed in the Program Files (x86) directory.  There are a couple of things (like Apples Quicktime) that are not 64-bit so you will see several of Premiere CS5 and CS5.5 files that have to deal with QuickTime are installed in Program Files (x86).
