Premiere Pro Freezing after opening Preferences Menu

Hi, I've been frustrated with premiere for the past couple days, as I want to get some editing done, but opening the preferences menu when I need to adjust settings causes the entire program to stop responding. From what I've been able to tell, it's only the preferences menu that crashes it.

Solutions I've tried (to no avail):
Updating My Drivers

Verifying File Integrity of Windows (sfc /scannow)

Resetting Premiere's Preferences

Uninstalling and Reinstalling through Creative Cloud

Downgrading to an older version

 

I'm not sure what to try and fix it at this point.

My Premier Pro crashes when opening any of the preferences menus. I have tried resetting the offences by hunting Alt, reinstalling normally, and the creative cloud removal tool then reinstalling but it is still happening. How can I fix this?

Honestly the only permanent fix I've found for this is to upgrade to a newer version (and deal with an entirely new set of bugs that come with it). Downgrading is usually not an option because you always need "that one function that wasn't added/fixed yet." I dealt with the issue in CC14 and 15, maybe even up until 22.2. I'm sure it went away after updating to 22.6. But that also introduced the (auto)save bug where PPro freezes/crashes on saving. Have you tried installing a newer/older version next to the one you currently have?

I'm guessing you've already tried changing audio hardware preferences, that seemed to work for some (for me the setting wouldn't stick). Some people were having issues because of the microphone input settings. I know it sounds weird, but that was the temporary fix everyone was preaching at the time. I've read posts where third-party plugins like Insta360 or Red Giant were causing problems, but for me personally it also happened on 100% clean installs, no third-party plugins. And ONLY in Premiere. For good measure: in 3 years of editing on this machine, I have NEVER had a similar issue in After Effects.

 

The weird thing is, after updating Premiere the issues went away WITHOUT updating any plugins! So that leads me to believe they weren't the issue in the first place.

 

Hopefully I've given you some insights to get to the bottom of this.

HEllo, @Zwea @W.Bee could you please share your system information, so that the team has a better view of the parameters in play, or if there is a common denominator to the issue? thank you in advance!

Hello, I found this info in the community digest: https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-discussions/premiere-pro-community-digest-november-2022/...

 

  • NVIDIA GPU Drivers causing hangs on import and unexpected behavior: Some editors have reported problems with the NVIDIA Studio Drivers v.526.98. Roll back the drivers to v.522.xx or earlier to restore system stability.

@PECourtejoie, v.527.xx seemed to have released today, do you know if those drivers are having those same issues?

@itsleah unfortunately, I do not have that GPU, so I cannot test. maybe one of the other posters feels adventurous?

Remember to use the Studio version!

Looks like there's only a new game ready driver available. We'll just have to run version 517 or 522 until they release the new studio driver.
