Hey, everyone. The title pretty much sums it up.
Before updating to 12.0.1, Bridge would only crash when I pressed 'Spacebar' to view an image in fullscreen. I thought updating it would solve the problem but it continued to do it. I uninstalled Bridge and removed my preferences, but now it crashes when I open it. I don't even get a software crash pop-up on the next startup, and it closes so quickly, I can't purge the cache or anything like that.
Running Windows 10, 64-bit, 8 GB RAM. Thank you in advance for your help.
We're sorry about the trouble due to Bridge crashing on launch. Please ensure you have the latest version or Bridge (12.0.2) installed on the computer through the Creative Cloud desktop app. Does the app crash if you try to run it as administrator? To check, you can right click on the application icon & select the option to Run as administrator.

Thank you for responding. Yes, I have the latest version (12.0.2) that I installed through the Creative Cloud Desktop applicaiton. It said I had both 12.0.1 and 12.0.2 installed as separate programs. I noticed this after starting this thread, so I uninstalled them both (also removing preferences) and redownloaded Bridge straight from Creative Cloud Desktop. After it installed, it said I just had one version installed, so I restarted my computer and tried opening Bridge (v. 12.0.2) and it continued to crash on startup.
However, today it is back to crashing upon pressing 'Spacebar' to engage fullscreen view. Same thing happens when I run the program as administrator. I have also tried forcing Bridge to close using Task Manager, with both the 'End Process' and 'End Process Tree' options, but still run into the same issue.
I started going through the troubleshooting steps outlined in the link you shared and got to Step 5: Start Adobe Bridge with the Folders panel disabled. I primarily use the Metadata workspace, so I tried switching to the Essential workspace to disable the Folders panel, but Bridge crashed when I did that. I reopened Bridge and it crashes on every workspace I try to switch to.
Is there something else I can try? Thank you again for your help.
Hi @Jase24621724e4qa ,
Can you share Bridge logs from you machine where you are facing crash?
