For some reason premiere pro does not open. I reset my computer, end all adobe processes over and over and maybe 1 in 20 times does it actually open the program. Then half the time it crashes. I do not have the time or money to use a program with so so so many issues. Why is this happening? If it cannot be fixed I will gladly take my money to a program that I can calmly use without so much frustration.
Sorry to hear that you are facing issue with Premiere Pro. We need your system info(OS version, RAM, CPU, GPU) to troubleshoot this issue.
Is there any error message after the crash? If so, share a screenshot with us.
Are you logged in as an Administrator? If you are on windows, try launching the app as an admin using the steps in this article: Run an Adobe program as administrator | Windows 7, Vista
Please let us know the status after trying the step.
I recently had this issue as well. It was resolved by:
Having this issue using CC2021. End Task doesn't solve the problem.
Update: updating through Creative Cloud solved the problem
As a follow up, after updating through CC, the project hangs on opening for up to 30 minutes. This problem continued after transcodng the project to DNxHR/DNxHD
Usually I would just restart my computer, thank you for the help this saved me much time.
After following all the steps, this page was unable to resolve my problem.
Restarting PC, restarting application after End Task - nothing helps.
Same issue here. Uninstalled/Reinstalled, updated app, restarted computerl, watched video on resetting and followed instructions, and still no Premier Pro. I'm on Windows 10 and my system meet all the requirements. What next? I have to complete a project/ What other software can I use that will give me the same results.
Same issue although, luckily, I'm not facing an imminent deadline. I have uninstalled/reinstalled, updated, restarted, all to no avail...
I've been plagued with this problem for awhile and JUST found the solution that worked for me. Reallly simple. This link takes you to Microsoft Visual C++. Just click download and select 64bit then repair. Boom. Fixes Premiere Pro 2021 in about 5 seconds.
this is on helpful at all to anyone using a mac
Perfect solution, solve the problem very easily. Thanks a Million!
This one finally solved my issues!
PP would not open or even attempt to launch. It kept telling me ( when I went to it's actual folder outside of creative cloud) that the file extension was missing or corrupt. Try to uninstall and reinstall. Which I did about a dozen times. Finally uninstalled all of adobe and reinstalled, still didn't work.
I just repaired the driver that this link takes you to and PP launched totally normal.
Worked for me too!! Thank You
bro youre the best! Ive been here for weeks trying to figure out why my PP wouldnt open, I followed that link repaired file and viola 🙂
Worked like a charm! Thanks
Thank you sooooooooo much
I ignored this answer for two days and tried other things, but this really does solve it. I'm not a big fan of clicking links from a forum, but I verified it as the real Microsoft site. Honestly I'm wondering if this might fix a few other Quirks my computer has had. A lot of programs use C++.
I was scouring youtube and this was the only fix LETS GOO!!
I'm honestly usually really reluctant to try downloading something from a chat like this but honestly it instantly fixed the problem. Thank you so much!
This worked for me, thanks! Wasn't launching at all, installed this and boom, straight in.
Same problem here and non of the above suggestions worked for me.
