Frequent Illustrator CS3 crashes on new Mac Pro

So I just got a new Mac Pro last week- I'm running OSX 10.5.2. I'm running into an issue where Illustrator is quitting on me a LOT. I had been running it on a dual 2.0 Ghz G5 for over a year
and it was super stable, I could probably count the number of times it quit out on one hand. now I literally have to save every 2 minutes or I lose work. It's definitely not normal.
I know this issue is super vague, but does anyone have any idea where to even start to try to address this?... It's starting to affect work!
Thanks!

Dear Chris:
I suppose this isn't related but I'll use the opportunity to warn you: be careful. I probably solved my problem turning off the Auto-Activation and used the Illustrator normally for a week, although I had a couple of (surprising) problems with Photoshop, one crash of my system included (it's surprising because in the nine previous months, I've had a minimum amount of problems). But yesterday I couldn't start my computer at all and, as it turned out, my mainboard was dead. My guarantee protected me but if this had happened a couple of months later this would have been extremely painful. I will need to wait a week in order to receive a new mainboard. Anyway, I've been advised to renew my guarantee via Apple Care: about $300 to receive a two-year extension of the guarantee.
Best regards,
Eduardo Guarniz I.

  • Creative Cloud Desktop App crashes on new Mac Pro 2013

    After using Migration Assistant to move apps from my 2010 MBP to a new Mac Pro 6,1 (OSX 10.9.1), I find that the Creative Cloud Desktop App consistently crashes right after entering my ID and password (whether started as a menu bar item or separate window).  I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times with the same result.  Below is a partial crashdump (I have the complete listing available):

    Thanks for this.  In the Cleaner App, I only saw Application Manager for OS 10.6 (other than my installed CC apps).  I cleaned this one only.  However after restarting, athough the cleaner said the uninstall was successful, I could not find any log file for the Cleaner App.  I still reinstalled the CC Desktop App, but with the same results.
    Do I need to uninstall ALL the CC apps?
    Thanks again.

  • Illustrator CS3 crashes at launch (Mac OS 10.6.8)

    Hello everyone,
    Can somebody please help me out from this.
    I'm using Illustrator CS3 on Mac 10.6.8. As I remember, I had installed some new fonts which I doubt it may have caused the error. I tried removing the User>Library>Preferences>Illustrator Settings folder. Plus I validated all the fonts including the new fonts on FontBook. Still negative. So I can't figure out what's the actual cause and how to troubleshoot it.

    code,
    Item 11) in 5) in the list below is about font cashes; item 1) is about moving fonts (Illy may reject fonts that go through validation). You may also try to move preferences/folders as described in 4). 6) may be needed.
    The following is a general list of things you may try when the issue is not in a specific file, and when it is not caused by issues with opening a file from external media, see below. You may have tried/done some of them already; 1) and 2) are the easy ones for temporary strangenesses, and 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences); 5) is a list in itself, and 6) is the last resort.
    If possible/applicable, you should save current artwork first, of course.
    1) Close down Illy and open again;
    2) Restart the computer (you may do that up to at least 5 times);
    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
    4) Move the folder (follow the link with that name) with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible);
    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (follow the link with that name, Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, Item 15) applies to CC, CS6, and maybe CS5);
    Even more seriously, you may:
    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool (if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC), and reinstall.
    http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
    External media: It is always recommended here to open/save from/to own hard disk, and to copy from/to networks and removable media. You may be lucky (for a while), but the chances of file corruption and other unpleasantnesses are immensely greater when you use anything but the harddisk, and it is better to be safe than sorry.
    In addition to the (far greater) risk of file corruption, some issues are mentioned here:

  • FTP crash on new Mac Pro

    I recently purchased a mac pro (intel) and installed all of
    my adobe/macromedia applications. They all seem to be working fine
    with the exception of the ftp portion of Dreamweaver MX. When I
    attempt to ftp, Dreamweaver crashes. I spoke with apple support and
    they do not want to claim any responsibility for the crashing and
    only refer to the software developer.
    Has anyone else had a similar issue? any advice? news?

  • Premiere CS5 crash in new Mac Pro 2010

    I have two problems:
    1. Sometimes when I make double cick in premiere icon, the program don't start. I see the previous premiere window with the 4 last projects, but I can not select anything, because the pointer mouse become a beach ball. I have to turn off the program with Alt+Cmd+esc.
    2. The big problem. Premiere CS5 5.0.0 crash editing while I'm making marks In and Out in Source window or playing the timeline. The 3 monitors became black or freeze, mouse disapears, sounds freeze and I have to restart with power button.
    I have last Mac Pro 2010, 2,8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, Mac OS X 10.6.4, 8GB RAM, ATi Radeon 5870, 3 x Hard disk 2 TB, 3 monitors connected trought DVI double chanel, and two minidisplayport-DVI double chanel.
    Sorry for my english.
    Any help or doubt about my explanation?

    Thanks Todd!
    I install Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.2) update, and the graphics update from apple but the problem persists. I disconnected two monitors, too.
    It's very extrange because I had a configuration system running ok, premiere running ok, everything good, but the system hard disk crashes.
    The problem is when I reinstall a backup copy of that system in a new hard disk, then Premiere don't start, and when start then crashes editing. All of the programs are running well, and other adobe CS5 applications, too.
    The old hard disk is a Hitachi 2TB (originally from apple), and the new hard disk is a Western Digital caviar black 1TB.
    I make the backup system from a *.dmg file. I tried with time machine, with disk utilities and with Carbon Copy Cloner. The result is always the same. Premiere won't start.
    I think I have small ghosts inside my computer =)
    Maybe is question of a bad clone but this is not a complicated task.
    Maybe is question of permits. But I resolve the permits question with disk utilities.
    Do you think is question of the clone image?
    Now I'm reinstalling a new copy of Leopard SO after formatting the new hard drive western digital 1TB. I will install only the CS5 adobe master collection, to tried in a clean system.

  • Premiere Pro CC crashing on brand new Mac Pro (late 2013)

    Such a big disappointment, yesterday our brand new Mac Pro (Late 2013) with OS X version 10.10.2 was installed and Premiere Pro CC is constantly crashing. One of the problems is that when I open a brand new project and before I add any content to a new sequence I just want to position the video track higher so I can see more audio tracks, the program crashed. I did it several times (new projects, new sequences) every time the same crashing program.
    Deinstalled Premiere Pro and reinstalled it again, but no luck.
    Tomorrow I created a whole new account with administrator rights on the Mac, the issue as described above was gone but at some point in time the program crashed again, and when I reopen the project, with two sequences open (one with footage and one empty) and I want to close the empty one, Premiere is crashing again. So I can't continue my work on this project and need to start over again....
    This is the error report that I'm getting....
    I hope somebody can help me on this because it's very frustrating...
    Thanks in advance

  • Premiere CC and Media Encoder crashing new Mac Pro

    Since installing CC on my new Mac Pro (Late 2013) Premiere and Adobe Media Encoder have been continually crashing my system.
    At first, my comp would freeze and I'd have to hard restart, then it switched to rebooting on in's own. This would happen 10-20 times a day while editing.
    This began shortly after I synced settings from a previous version of PP but since I've installed new RAM; reinstalled CC/PP; reformatted my HDD and reinstalled Mavericks, CC, PP; and have not synced my settings. I've also tried editing multiple projects of different sizes with different media types -- all are experiencing the same problems.
    When I edit the same projects on my MBP, everything works fine.
    Recently, I have disabled GPU acceleration in all of my PP projects and that seems to have solved the problem.
    My office received 3 Pros at the same time with the same hardware configurations and software -- I am the only one experiencing this problem.
    Here are some specs:
    Late 2013 Mac Pro
    2.7 Ghz 12-Core Intel Xeon E5
    64 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 ECC
    AMD FirePro D700 6144 MB
    All drivers, CC, and software is up to date.
    So what do I do now?
    Any help is much appreciated!

    I am on Windows, but have a few saved Mac discussions that may help (or, may not... but free to read)

  • Premiere Pro CC continuous crash and extremely slow renders on a new Mac Pro.

    Hello,
    recently we changed our editing machines with the new Mac Pro with this configuration:
    - CPU 3,5 GHz 6 core Intel Xeon E5
    - 32 GB RAM
    - 2x AMD FirePro D700 6 GB
    we work on a server connected to the Mac Pro in Dual Ethernet configuration.
    The rendering of a sequence at 1920x1080 with 3 video tracks (video footage converted at ProRes 422 LT, a title on a linked After Effects Comp and a PSD graphic overlay of a small logo) of the length of about 3 minutes it takes about 4 hour... when it doesn't crash.
    When it crash, usually when i simply scroll the timeline, i receive an error message very long (if you want I can send you a rtf file about it, it's too long to paste it here).
    These are my system information:
    - Premiere Pro CC 8.2.0 (65)
    - I've installed every updates available at this time
    - OS X Yosemite 10.10.2
    Thank you very much in advance, and sorry for my bad english.

    Thanks Andrea for your assistance in reporting that additional information. You have come across an intermittent bug which has been reported by other users with no reliable repro steps for us to follow in house. So it appears to be mainly system specific, but we're not even sure which sorts of systems demonstrate it yet.
    One other thing to try is clearing your media cache files (from preferences > media panel). In the meantime,e the best thing to do is make sure you submit those crash logs to adobe whenever you get them. This helps us identify common thread among various users who may be experiencing the same problem. Also, if you have time, please file a bug report describing the steps that caused the issue in your case: http://adobe.ly/ReportBug
    Please be as specific as possible when describing your steps. Without a repeatable case, a bug like this is very, very difficult to fix. Thanks again for your support.
    To work around the sloe render for AE comp problem, please try right clicking on the comp in the timeline and then choose the "Render and Replace" command to transcode it out to a more easily handled format. This should help a lot with your performance slowness, and you will still have the ability to restore the original comp files if needed.

  • Anyone having a crashing problem with the new Mac Pro?

    I have a new Mac Pro purchased in January.  I bought it as a front end to my very large mp3 library (170,000 mp3s and over 2,000 mp4s; media is housed on a 12 TB QNAP NAS).  Since day 1 it has been a major problem.  The biggest problem I have now is random crashing--can occur any time even when I am not even using the Mac Pro, making it totally unreliable and a $5,200 paperweight.
    I have had several Apple Care people working on this, but after having been passed around to 5-6 different people, they still have no solution.
    Anybody having a similar problem?

    As today I'm sure I'll not make the purchase again.
    The more I look into this problem, the more people and articles I find about it: and it's more than a month and no update to fix the problem.
    PC alternatives are far more interesting and they still give you the choice of building your machine.
    Apple was amazing 15 years ago, where is the team of developpers that created the old Mac Pro?!
    I want to be optimistic too, but I'm already collecting all the info on how to build an backup machine... since I'm using Adobe CC and other interchangeable softwares, there is no more problems swithcing from Mac to PC and vice-versa.
    I hope there will be a third contender entering the market soon, with a dream computer on Linux. I am on mac because of its reputation 20 years ago, but times are changing and Apple vision seems very different now.
    I'm afraid that WWDC will not announce a thing relevant for the MacPro or computers, we got used now to ear only about phones and tablets...

  • New mac pro freezing and crashing

    I got a new Mac Pro two weeks ago, and it's been great, much faster than my macbook.
    However in those two weeks, i've had 7 freeze and crashes now, that's more than in years of using MacBooks.
    Symptoms are: the screen just freezes, nothing moves anymore, not even the mouse. The sounds hangs, and after a few seconds the mac shuts down and restarts.
    On four of these crashes, i saw a red light from the bottom of the tower.
    Anyone else experienced this?
    Does anyone know what the red light means?
    Any input to find the source of these crashes and what to do next is welcome.
    Specs:
    Mac Pro 6.1 (the round one)

  • New Mac Pro Freezes frequently in FCP

    We recently replace our G5 video editing computer with a new Mac Pro. We are running most current version of Final Cut, Quicktime and Leopard. 8GB RAM. Our G5 virtually never froze up, but the new one freezes frequently during editing. Beach ball that doesn't go away w/o holding down the start button on the computer.
    All sw was clean install on the new machine.
    Anyone else experiencing or have suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Putting the Project file on another drive does ZERO for performance. Keep it on your system drive.
    Trash preferences
    Use Disk Utility to Repair Permissions
    Remove your RAM and see if you still have issues.
    Those are my suggestions.

  • New mac pro, CS5 crashes, where to start?

    I have a new mac pro which crashes daily while using After Effects (and photoshop). I've seen some indication that this could be a driver issue with the 2 nvidia cards that came preinstalled, or an Adobe issue. Running 10.6.4 Snow Leopard. I can recreate this sometimes by scrubbing the after effects timeline with a spotlight casting a shadow on another layer. The system locks up, left monitor flashes black and I have to hard rest. This is super frustrating, apple has twice told me it's Adobe, but I don't know. All I do know as a business owner is that I'm $13,000 invested in hardware / software that don't seem to work together and I don't have many other options as this is what i do for living. Any thoughts at all? Anyone have any ideas?
    2x2.93 quad core xeon

    For sure it is really frustrating, especially when you convinced the company you work with to switch from FCP to CS5...
    I have the same problem with a Mac Pro bought in April and a GTX 280... We were pretty happy with Premiere Pro, when editing a feature shot on RED 4K HD. It is the more stable release of that soft I ever seen, and I'm using it since Premiere 5.1 and the mini-DV.
    But I'm disappointed by After Effect, which use to be alway stable in the previous version I used. We're working on a 3300$ computer, using a 450$ graphic card, and the two Samsung monitors keep flashing before AFX craches... That happen every 15 minutes.
    The GeForce driven is updated. We have also a Geforce GT 120 in the Mac Pro, to plug a Wacom Cintiq 12WX on it... The screen of the wacom doesn't flash when it happens to the Samsungs, that's why I'm thinking of an issue involving the GTX 280. Anyway, nVidia does not provide any driver for Mac for the GT 120...
    So it's probably more a graphic card issue, than a software one... But if someone has any other idea to get rid of this problem (unactivate open GL does not change the problem)... ?
    Thanks in advance for who may help...

  • New Mac Pro and iMac as Display – Several Crashes

    Hello,
    I am using a new Mac Pro (late 2013, 3.5 6C) and are really happy with it. But I have one problem …
    Currently I am using an iMac 27" as a display via Apple Thunderbolt cable (original cable from Apple).
    But when I switch my displays via cmd+f2, my mac pro sometimes crashes. So I can switch back to my iMac always, without issues. But sometimes, when I want to switch back to my running Mac Pro (no screensaver etc.), I cannot switch back and the Mac Pro simply reboots.
    Any ideas what to do? I've sent a bug report to Apple already …

  • My brand new Mac Pro running Mountain Lion crashes when installing updates or new software.

    My brand new Mac Pro running Mountain Lion crashes and re-boots when installing updates or new software. I can only perform these operations while in the safe boot mode.  I have reloaded OSX twice. Does not solve the problem.  The machine is brand new. It replaced a previous MacPro that would not support the new Mountain Lion.  When my new machine came in.  I swaped the dirve out of my old unit into the new and ran the new Lion update.  The machine has had this aforementioned problem since that time.  Also, I had the Legacy version of File Vault running on the old machine/drive, which I also turned off(thinking that was the problem)  but that did not fix the problem either.

  • New Mac Pro (late 2013) crashes / freezes while rendering or editing in Premiere Pro CC

    We recently purchased a new Mac Pro desktop (Late 2013, 16GB memory, D700 Graphic Card, 2.7 GHz -12 Core, OSX 10.9.3) and we are running Adobe CC on it. When using Premiere Pro CC (7.2.2) I am having major issues while rendering and editing. About 50% of the time when I try to render it starts off real fast then just freezes. This happens in Premiere and Media Encoder. Sometimes I can just Force Quit Premiere or Media Encoder and other times I have to do a hard restart on the entire computer because the entire computer freezes. The computer will also occasionally freeze whenever doing simple editing or stacking layers. The  computer will also just decide to suddenly stop and restart when editing or doing simple tasks like browsing the web. Additionally there has been several times if the render does finish, the final video will have digital glitches throughout the video. I have to redo the render once or twice and it will finally be fine. This all is happening several times a day. This never happened on our previous Mac Pro, but we were not running Mavericks. I used Migration Assistant to transfer from old computer to new computer. So I don't know if this is an a problem with the actual Mac Pro, Mavericks, graphic card or Adobe? But right now I am very frustrated as you can imaging spending all this money for a computer that has been giving us more issues than our previous computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    1. This procedure is a diagnostic test. It changes nothing, for better or worse, and therefore will not, in itself, solve the problem. But with the aid of the test results, the solution may take a few minutes, instead of hours or days.
    2. If you don't already have a current backup, back up all data before doing anything else. The backup is necessary on general principle, not because of anything in the test procedure. Backup is always a must, and when you're having any kind of trouble with the computer, you may be at higher than usual risk of losing data, whether you follow these instructions or not.
    There are ways to back up a computer that isn't fully functional. Ask if you need guidance.
    3. Below are instructions to run a UNIX shell script, a type of program. All it does is to collect information about the state of the computer. That information goes nowhere unless you choose to share it. However, you should be cautious about running any kind of program (not just a shell script) at the behest of a stranger. If you have doubts, search this site for other discussions in which this procedure has been followed without any report of ill effects. If you can't satisfy yourself that the instructions are safe, don't follow them. Ask for other options.
    Here's a summary of what you need to do, if you choose to proceed:
    ☞ Copy a line of text in this window to the Clipboard.
    ☞ Paste into the window of another application.
    ☞ Wait for the test to run. It usually takes a few minutes.
    ☞ Paste the results, which will have been copied automatically, back into a reply on this page.
    The sequence is: copy, paste, wait, paste again. You don't need to copy a second time. Details follow.
    4. You may have started the computer in "safe" mode. Preferably, these steps should be taken in “normal” mode, under the conditions in which the problem is reproduced. If the system is now in safe mode and works well enough in normal mode to run the test, restart as usual. If you can only test in safe mode, do that.
    5. If you have more than one user, and the one affected by the problem is not an administrator, then please run the test twice: once while logged in as the affected user, and once as an administrator. The results may be different. The user that is created automatically on a new computer when you start it for the first time is an administrator. If you can't log in as an administrator, test as the affected user. Most personal Macs have only one user, and in that case this section doesn’t apply. Don't log in as root.
    6. The script is a single long line, all of which must be selected. You can accomplish this easily by triple-clicking anywhere in the line. The whole line will highlight, though you may not see all of it in the browser window, and you can then copy it. If you try to select the line by dragging across the part you can see, you won't get all of it.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:

    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    7. Launch the built-in Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Click anywhere in the Terminal window and paste by pressing command-V. The text you pasted should vanish immediately. If it doesn't, press the return key.
    8. If you see an error message in the Terminal window such as "syntax error," enter
    exec bash
    and press return. Then paste the script again.
    9. If you're logged in as an administrator, you'll be prompted for your login password. Nothing will be displayed when you type it. You will not see the usual dots in place of typed characters. Make sure caps lock is off. Type carefully and then press return. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. If you make three failed attempts to enter the password, the test will run anyway, but it will produce less information. In most cases, the difference is not important. If you don't know the password, or if you prefer not to enter it, press the key combination control-C or just press return three times at the password prompt. Again, the script will still run.
    If you're not logged in as an administrator, you won't be prompted for a password. The test will still run. It just won't do anything that requires administrator privileges.
    10. The test may take a few minutes to run, depending on how many files you have and the speed of the computer. A computer that's abnormally slow may take longer to run the test. While it's running, there will be nothing in the Terminal window and no indication of progress. Wait for the line
    [Process completed]
    to appear. If you don't see it within half an hour or so, the test probably won't complete in a reasonable time. In that case, close the Terminal window and report the results. No harm will be done.
    11. When the test is complete, quit Terminal. The results will have been copied to the Clipboard automatically. They are not shown in the Terminal window. Please don't copy anything from there. All you have to do is start a reply to this comment and then paste by pressing command-V again.
    At the top of the results, there will be a line that begins with "Model Identifier." If you don't see that, but instead see a mass of gibberish, you didn't wait for the "Process completed" message to appear in the Terminal window. Please wait for it and try again.
    If any private information, such as your name or email address, appears in the results, anonymize it before posting. Usually that won't be necessary.
    12. When you post the results, you might see the message, "You have included content in your post that is not permitted." It means that the forum software has misidentified something in the post as a violation of the rules. If that happens, please post the test results on Pastebin, then post a link here to the page you created.
    Note: This is a public forum, and others may give you advice based on the results of the test. They speak only for themselves, and I don't necessarily agree with them.
