Premiere Pro 5.5 crashes when opening any project file containg an active sequence.

When I create a new project the program continues to run until I select a sequence by double clicking on it. Then the program crashes.
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with a Intel Core i7-2820QM 2.30GHz 16GB of RAM and an Nvidia Geforce GTX 560M graphics card. Once the problem occured I updated my driver version yet the problem still remains.
I have selveral projects due very soon soI appreciate any help you can give me! Even if it just a point in the right direction.

Ann, THANKS for replying!
If I open a brand new project, which I could do before, and then IMPORT a previous project, it works and I can edit and export the project.  However, it did crash upon trying to save it and I still can not just open a previously created project.  When I do I get an error message that Says: "Premiere has encountered an error and needs to close down.  We will attempt to save your project."
Do you or anyone else have any ideas?

  • Premiere Pro CS5.5 crashing while opening any project but new

    Premiere Pro keeps crashing when I attempt to open any previously saved project.
    If media to a project is not linked, it will open the box to relink, but selecting "link" or "offline" both lead to a crash once the workspace attempts to load.
    I am on a 3.4 Ghz Intel Core i7 iMac. AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1024 MB with Lion 10.7.4. I updated my PP and Media Encoder.
    I have the Master Suite CS5.5, but mostly live in PS, AI and DW. I searched through the discussions and found a number of posts regarding crashes, but they all seem to have different problems/solutions. The issue is now over my head. Any suggestions?
    Also, I read on a few discussions that it is recommended to run PP on a seperate machine because when a problem arises it is easier to discover its cause. If I don't have the means to do this, are there any tips for it to run seamlessly?
    Below is the script from problem report.
    Thanks for your time,
    George
    [Please don't post full crash reports in the forum.  It makes scrolling through a thread very unwieldy.  If an Adobe staff member wants to see one, you can PM the report separately.]

    The first thing that I would do is to look over this FAQ Entry, and then post the details - the more the better. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/961741?tstart=0
    If your Projects are behaving as the OP's were, and the media is in a similar place, be sure to list everything.
    Good luck,

    CS 5.5.2 crashes when opening any existing  projects, except a new project. I have 3 projects I'm working on and none will open without immediately crashing the program!!! I see another post with same problem, but unfortunately 0 responses.

  • Pre 7 crashes when opening v2 project file

    Hi,
    I upgraded to v7 from v2 a few months ago.  For the most part things have been going fine, but when I recently tried opening a project file I had worked on in v2 I got the following error:
    Sorry, a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Elements to shut down. We will attempt to save your current project.
    Not too helpful mind you.  I still had v2 installed, so I tried opening it in there and it worked.  So that kind of ruled out a corrupt file.  I searched forums and contacted support, and not much help there.  I tried deleting parts of the timeline and re-saving in v2 but I still couldn't open in v7.  I finally removed the DVD menus, and surprise it opened in v7.  I investigated further, and it appears that since v3 DVD menus are named with _pal_ whereas in v2 there were ntsc and pal versions of each menu (I've been using ntsc).  Also, I opened up the .prel project in notepad, and came across the DVDLayoutTree node and its version attribute is "3" for v2 file and "4" for v7 file.  I modified the attribute to "4", and was able to open the project in v7 however it did not show any DVD menus.  I suspect I also should have renamed the _ntsc_ file references to _pal_.  In any event the project did load, and it's a simple matter to reset the DVD menus.  This hacking should probably be a last resort as its probably safer to remove the DVD menus in the older Pre and then open it in Pre v7.  Anyway, just a tip for others if they run into this problem.  Much easier than re-installing Pre7 or junking the project file and starting from scratch.
    Take care
    Marc

    Hi, thanks for the response.  The project was actually finished in v2, but I wanted to open it in v7 as a reference.  I don't want (and shouldn't) have to keep all previous versions of the software installed on my system so that I may be able to open project files. Most software programs I work with are backwards compatible or provide some means of upgrading files to newer format.  Can you imagine how things would be if Word Doc format became unusable with each MS Word release?  :-)
    In this particular case, Pre7 shouldn't be crashing like it is.  Ideally, it should recognize a previous version project file and either update it automatically or drop features no longer supported (with some message to the user or log file generated).  The error message is ambiguous at best and pretty useless as it didn't really help in identifying the root cause of the problem.  This is likely the result of some uncaught exception when the program parses the .prel project file and finds an element attribute it doesn't expect (version "3" instead of "4").

  • Quicktime crashes when opening any video file type.

    Hi, I've been having this problem for quite a long time now. When attempting to open a quicktime file or any other type of video file, the program crashes. It does not report any sort of error message. I've updated both quicktime and windows. I've tried everything that has been suggested in prior posts and have yield no results. This is really irrating me. I don't want to have wasted money on this program and I need this for class. Any advice is appreciated, thank you.

    The files I'm most concerned with playing are my animations exported from Final Cut and from another system's quicktime. These usually are quicktimes or .wma's that are either uncompressed or with a variety of compression, usually DV-NTSC, H.264, HDV 1080 60i, or mpeg4 for the web. But as I've professed before, it seem that the file type isn't necessarily factor. Any video file that should play in Quicktime does not and the program crashes. Upon this I get a very vague error message which reads "Quicktime Player has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." That unfortunately is as much detail as I can give at the moment. I know this is a vague problem and that my information is just as vague, but that is all I have gathered. Anything is appreciated.

  • FCP crashes when opening particular project file

    I have one particular FCP project file that crashes each time I try to open it. I have read other threads and tried to follow their suggestions, but to no avail. I have tried opening it on different computers (both PowerPC and Intel), disconnecting hard drives (to keep media offline), creating a new user, etc. None of it works. The file will not even get to the "Preparing Video" stage before the spinning beach ball appears and FCP crashes. Thanks for your help! I have included the error message below:

    Hi, thanks for the response.  The project was actually finished in v2, but I wanted to open it in v7 as a reference.  I don't want (and shouldn't) have to keep all previous versions of the software installed on my system so that I may be able to open project files. Most software programs I work with are backwards compatible or provide some means of upgrading files to newer format.  Can you imagine how things would be if Word Doc format became unusable with each MS Word release?  :-)
    In this particular case, Pre7 shouldn't be crashing like it is.  Ideally, it should recognize a previous version project file and either update it automatically or drop features no longer supported (with some message to the user or log file generated).  The error message is ambiguous at best and pretty useless as it didn't really help in identifying the root cause of the problem.  This is likely the result of some uncaught exception when the program parses the .prel project file and finds an element attribute it doesn't expect (version "3" instead of "4").

  • How do I stop my Reader version 11.0.1 from crashing when opening any PDF file?

    I've had this problem since yesterday and it started very suddenly but now I cannot view any of my files because the reader crashes after a few seconds. I cannot use the app at all, please help!
    The files I'm trying to view on my reader are not new, meaning that they used to work just fine without causing the reader to crash. So I don't think that is the problem.
    I've also already checked that I have plenty of space on my iPad so the problem shouldn't be related to memory either.
    The next step, I guess, would be to remove and reinstall the app but then I'll lose all my neatly organized files.
    The reader is version 11.0.1 and my iOS is version 7.0.4.
    I'd appreciate any help I can get because this app is what I mainly use my iPad for and, as I said, now it's not working at all.

    Try resetting your iPad: Hold down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons at the same time. Keep holding them down until you see the Apple logo, then let go. Reopen Reader.

  • Premiere Pro CC 2014 crashes on opening old projects

    I have the update. I can run PP 2014 with no problems if I start from a fresh project. However, if I import a project from the previous version of PP, the software keeps crashing. In other other words PP 7.2.2. in this example, is not upward compatible with PP 2014. I suspect your software engineers didn't consider the fact that users may need to go back to projects done in earlier versions of PP so I'm hoping they will add this feature in the next version.
    Dave

    Open  an old project in the newer version and you are offered the opportunity to save it as a compatible project with a new name.
    Doing this retains the original project.as well.

  • Acrobat Pro 9.3 Crashes when opening multiple files

    Acrobat Pro 9.3 Crashes when opening multiple files. I have not seen any solutions in forums that solves this problem. I have just done the most recent update and it still crashes.

    Acrobat Pro 9.4.2 (CS5) is doing the same thing on my Windows XP SP3 with 3.5 GB of ram and 206 GB of my brand new 300 GB hard drive free.
    It starting doing this at the end of last year before my hard drive died.  Then after rebuilding the entire system on this new drive it worked fine, until I downloaded all the updates and now it is broken again.  Anytime I open more than one PDF, Acrobat crashes.  I send the error report every time.

  • Premiere Pro 5.5 crashes when importing mpg file

    Premiere Pro 5.5 crashes when importing mpg file.
    I can get the file to import if I first right click the file and tell it to "open in source monitor" then tell it to import.
    When I do this it indexes the file. After it is done indexing is when I can then import the file.
    Should I not just be able to tell it to import and it does the indexing?
    These files that I am tryig to open were with Premiere Pro 4.

    Welcome to the forum.
    What are the specs. of this MPEG file? Might be something in those, that is causing an issue.
