Hi everyone. I'm looking forward to learning Adobe After FX, but unfortunately I learned that I have this error: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application.". I've been trying for over an hour to find fixes, but to no avail. Then, I noticed that if I restart my computer, sign in, and immediately, after a second, click on After FX from the start menu, it starts up without an issue. This is fine for me temporarily, but in the long run, I expect it will be quite inconvenient. What can I do to absolve the error so I can access After FX anytime I want, even after fully logging in?

Hello,

The initial action would be to reset the preferences to default. To do it, you hit the key below.

Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows)

Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS)

ToolfarmJP, 

 

Thank you for the advice. Ctrl+Alt+Shift worked for me after I updated and restarted my Windows.
