Since the Update 25.4.1 Illustrator is always stuck while initialization. The only stable version I can start up is 24.3.1.

Does anyone have or had the same Problem and was able to fix it?

Hi there,

 

Sorry about this inconvenience. I would like to know if the steps suggested above by @sishamIAGD worked for you? If not, I would request you to share a few more details like:

  • Operating System
  • Are there any recent changes made to your system? For example, any antivirus, system updates, or web extensions installed recently.
  • Does manually resetting Illustrator Preferences (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html) help to resolve the issue?
    Disclaimer: Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings, and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.

 

Also, you may try opening the app in Safe Mode (Windows/ macOS) & Hidden Admin Account (Windows) / Root Account (macOS). Let us know how it goes.

 

We will be looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks & Regards,
Anshul Saini

I'm having the same problem with Illustrator on Windows 10.

I have tried:

  • Complete removal of all adobe programs and Creative Cloud, complete removal of all Adobe related folders and files - and reinstalling.
  • Used the Creative Cloud Cleaner tool 3 or 4 times.
  • I have tried all available versions of Illustrator that CC has available to download and install. None of those will start and run.
  • Removing preferences has not worked. Running safe mode has not worked. Variations on compatability options does not work.
  • Tried with Windows updates rolled back. Did not help

  

The last thing I can try, is to completely wipe my C drive, and do a fresh install - just to see if Illustrator will run. I don't want to do that.

 

All other Creative Cloud apps are working great. Illustrator has ceased to open, at all.
