Starting about a week ago, AE consistently crashes any time I try to maximize the window or even slightly resize the window. I was using CC 2019 16.01, and I figured there was a bug with the newest version of AE, so I uninstalled and reinstalled 15.12 (which I had been using for months without issue). Same problem. So I did some Googling and saw someone had the same problem a couple years ago and was able to find a fix by going back to version 2015 13.5, so I uninstalled 15.12 and installed 13.5. Same problem.
Adapter RAM: 1.00 GB (Sorry, I don't really know what this means, but it sounded important enough to include)
Every time it crashes, it gives me a slightly different error code. I tried it three times just now and got the following:
1.) Last logged message was <220> ae.biltpipe.<2> Making new context
2.) last logged message was <6216> ae.biltpipe. <2> Making new context
3.) Last logged message was <4016> ae.biltpipe <2> Making new context
Not sure if I'm missing any other important details, but hopefully this is enough to point me in the right direction.
One last thing -- I am a HS teacher and I have AE running on 25 student computers + my computer. We all have identical machines, and I'm 99% certain that we all have the same build of Windows. This is not happening on anyone else's computer except for mine.
