It is freezing at launch, the entire UI becomes unresponsive and eventually crashes. Both AME 2019 and 2020 suffers the same problem. None of the steps I've taken below has solved the problem and am getting very frustrated.
Resolution attempt (listed order may not be the order attempted)
- Emptied AE media cache
- Set AE project to Software only encoding, Hardware CUDA and OpenCL.
- Update Intel Display Drivers
- Update NVIDIA drivers (with perform clean installation)
- Re-installed creative cloud (with adobe creative cloud cleaner tool used)
- Emptied and set the file X19zbGNfZmVhdHVyZXNfXw==.slc to read only.
- Deleted WSMgrCfg file.
- Launch AME while pressing Shift key.
- Enabled "Administrator" account under windows 10 and tried AME, but still crashes.
- Flashed motherboard firmware
- Updated .NET Framework
- Updated Windows from 1903 to 1909
I can render videos directly from After Effects but because I need mp4 compression, I need to add my videos to AME. If am lucky, AME will crash after I begin rendering and the video will still be able to complete successfully but majority of time AME will crash before am able to press anything.
This is a brand new and clean machine.

I have similar problems. And it seems to me that the crash began after updating Windows 10 to version 1909.
I checked on other computers with Windows 10 version 17 * and 18 *. AME works for them without crashing. Only now, after reinstalling Windows, I can’t return to the old versions. Sadness
That's funny, I was the other way round, I thought by going into 1909 it would resolve the issue as my colleagues are on 1909 too.

We're sorry for the issue. This is unfortunate to happen.
We have shared this crash instance with our engineering team for their advice. We'll update you shortly.
Is there anything else you'd like to mention? Let us know.
It has been a few days already and the problem still occurs, your specialists worked with me for some 4-5 hours and it's still not resolved.
Hi, I'm trying to install and test this on win 10 x1909 today. Will update as soon as I have any new information.
Is this a custom built machine it some configuration from Dell or HP?
It's a Dell machine but it wasn't on 1909 when it was deployed and when AME was first installed. I need to check with the procurement guys tomorrow if it's a custom built.
Thank you! I tried a variety of tests with AME on Win10 1909 and did not run into any issues.
Can you please launch AME and wait for it to freeze, then create a dump file before it crashes?
Thanks for sharing. Still looking into it.
Are you connecting to the AME machine via Remote Desktop?
The crash seems to happen in audio devices code so maybe try to change your audio devices?
Or disable audio redirection in Remote Desktop if you are using RDP.
We are working on a fix so make sure to update as soon as it's available.
Да, я подключаюсь через удаленный доступ. Попробую посмотреть, можно ли что-то изменить в аудио.
Но исправление бы не помешало ))
Да, обязательно все починим))
Получилось настройки изменить? Они выглядят примерно так:
Попробовал - безрезультатно. Либо звука нет, либо виснет.
Даже если при отключенном звуке отправить в AME и переподключиться включив звук, то всё зависает. И Media Encoder и Premiere Pro
Я правильно понимаю что если настройки звука "Не воспроизводить" и "Не записывать" то AME и PPRO не зависает?
Совершенно верно. Зависает только при "удаленном аудио"
Hi, I'm having the same issue, has this been resolved yet?
Hello! Adobe specialist here.
Yes, it has been fixed.
But you will have to upgrade to Adobe's Premier Premiere Subscription PowerUser Subscription Service™ in order to access any of our products bug-free. Otherwise, deal with the millions of program-breaking bugs in our "professional creative suite" we wont fix because we have your money. Kindly go f*ck yourself!
