We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I downloaded the trial of Premeire Pro CS6 today, and after I launched the application, it said "premiere pro could not find any capable video play modules".
Tried again, no luck.
My graphics card is at the latest driver that HP has out.
What should I do before I give up?
HP DV7t Quad 17'' Laptop
AMD Radeon 6770HD (Switchable Graphics)
What about if you have a desktop PC...
I have a Dell T3610 and it just started doing this today, no dual video cards at all.
Did you check your BIOS settings? What graphics card do you have?
You must set the GPUSNIFER.EXE as High performance in Catalist Control.
Alright, I'm completely befuddled and frustrated. I'm getting this exact same error message ("Adobe Premiere Pro could not find any capable video play modules. Please update your video display drivers and start again.") despite setting Premiere Pro CS6 to Run As Administrator and Run With Graphics Processor: High Performance NVIDIA Processor. After Effects, Photoshop and Audition all open without a hitch. I have the most current GeForce driver available (that isn't in Beta, that is). I've tried running the compatibility troubleshooter and everything. Nothing fixes it.
Here's the thing. Premiere will occasionally work. The problem is, I can't nail down what changes. I've tried a myriad of things but can't seem to figure out why it'll suddenly work, I'll be in there for a long time with no issue, I'll close out and put the laptop to sleep, come back later to work again and the error greets me once more. None of the above solve my problem.
Here's my info: Asus Q550LF; Windows 8.1
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU @ 1.80GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 8GB
System Type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor
GeForce GT 745M Driver Version: 337.88
I've discovered something: if I have my laptop plugged in to a power source, Premiere powers up without a hitch. Unplugged, I get the aforementioned error message. However, if I plug it in, open Premiere and then unplug the power cord, Premiere functions fine. I've been through all the power options and cannot find anything that seems to be blocking Premiere or the graphics driver from being functional based on power connectivity. Any thoughts?
I faced the similar problem, here is my laptop config
HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC
Core i7 Intel Chipset
AMD Radeon 8600M 2GB
16 GB DDR3 RAM
I simply uninstalled the AMD Catalys Control Center and also other AMD related softwares from my system, downloaded the latest, AMD Control Center from : Download Drivers (you have to select your preferences first), and installed it fresh, Then I ran the the Premier Pro with Administrative Power (Right click and run as administrator).
and it simply is running.
I'm trying to solve the same error on start up. "Adobe Premiere Pro could not find any capable video play modules. Please update your video display drivers and start again." I have a MacBook Pro.
Processor: 2.9GHz Intel Core i7
Graphics: Intel HD Grpahics 4000
Looked into #1, I think #2 and #3 don't pertain to me because of the Intel HD graphics, but let me know if I'm wrong, and would need more help to do #4.
Is my system not set up for Premiere? What are solutions for Mac?
I think I found it solution for that. It made by your firewall blocking adobe premiere pro.exe file, GPUSniffer.exe and dynamicklinkmanager.exe. You have to just let those files through your firewall.
Swell... I founded a palliative solution... I converted all files to WAV audio 48000 16bit and is running very well. I exported all audios sequence before editing and completely replaces the audio track .
Hey I'm not sure if this will work for anyone that is having this problem, but since I did not have the switchable graphic card option I simply went to the adobe folder where this program is located and right clicked on it and clicked on the option "Comparability Troubleshoot." Worked just fine after that. Hope this helps.
update (download & install) your intel hd graphics drivers
Update your intel HD graphics driver, it might not work through device manager so go to intel's website and download the latest, this will give you the open gl support before any application starts using your AMD card.
Try opening premiere pro now. It wont work even now, because in catalyst control center premiere pro is somehow listed to use the intel GPU, so what you need to do next is just go to your program files directory and rename premiere pro.exe to something else just like some other guy has on some other website i dont remember, like premiere pro CC.exe or something.
Try opening premiere pro now, it should work.
I downloaded the newest trial version and I'm using amd radeon hd 5970.
It can lunch when I disabled the amd drive and only use default window driver but it's at a low resolution.
Once I enabled the amd drive, it shows that "could not find any capable video modules" message again
I am having the same problem with a slight difference! I've called Adobe twice and they haven't be able to fix it. It's been 3 weeks where I can't edit at home and it's frustrating to say the least. Here's my problem.
I don't have any GPU cards like AMD or NVIDIA, I have Intel (R) HD Graphics 3000. I wondered if I needed to upgrade for it to work but I read in the premiere pro system requirements that having an AMD or NVIDIA is optional.
So technically it should work but I just can't put my finger on what's the problem. I've everything on this thread and still no luck! Looks like I'm going to have to call Adobe again if I can't solve it. But if anyone else has any suggestions other than what's mentioned then please let me know! So many projects now on hold!
Make sure you don't block Adobe Premiere Pro and its processes, like GPUSniffer.exe and dynamicklinkmanager.exe with a firewall.
If you block this program with a firewall, you might get this error:
I found a temporary fix for Windows 8.1.
First, open My PC, or This PC, whatever yours is listed under.
Second, click on the blue Question Mark or PC Help button. Mine is in the upper right corner.
Third, type in Video Display Drivers.
Fourth, click on Hardware And Devices, then click on Next.
My computer automatically found the problem driver and fixed it long enough to open Premiere Pro once. I have to go through this process every time I turn on my computer, so it is not a permanent resolution.
For Mac users:
Found this solution and it worked like a charm. No removing package files and so on: Premiere Pro CC, CC 2014, or 2014.1 freezing on startup or crashing while working (Mac OS X 10.9, an...
This WORKS for mac users! - THX mikemitchum!
HP Pavilion g6 -1210TX with same problem. Have spent hours on phone to HPsupport who have been very helpful, have downloaded all new drivers...none resolve the issue.
Can get CS6 to work, but only if I disable Intel driver in Device manager , however I lose all brightness control on laptop. HP have advised to talk to Adobe
Anyone else resolved the two conflicts . Premier Pro CS6 functioning and Laptop brightness ?
I've tried all the fix mentioned in this topics and some other found in other website but I have the same problem:-(
When I start my Premiere CC 2015.2, trial mode downloaded some days ago, I receive the classical error.
Here my Actions:
- Start program as Administrator
- Updated the nvidia driver > 361.91 > Nvidia GeForce GT 640M LE
- Try the program execution for Windows 8, Windows 7
- Nvidia panel > High performance (instead of balanced performance)
Now I have only 20 days remaining to try the CC 2015.2, if you have any suggestion I'll very pleased as, at this point, I can't do anything more.
Many thanks for you special support/consideration..
I ran into this problem after using trying to increase my TCP performance with a tool called TCP Optimizer.
Not thinking this change in my TCP registry settings caused it, I added the Dynamic Link manager and GPUSniffer programs to allow through my firewall.
Didn't fix it.
I had to go back and reset my TCP settings to Windows 7 default in TCP Optimizer.
I haven't seen this as a resolution but want folks to be aware that if you do change your TCP settings or TCP registry entries, it will cause this issue even though you have a good internet connection.
Check your Anti-Virus etc. AVG Anti-Virus Free was preventing Premiere from opening up for me. After trying everything I read on the forums I took a gamble on temporarily turning it off to see if it was the culprit. Sure enough, it was. Now to find a new Anti-virus... Hopefully that helps those of you that are having an issue with it.
Yep AVG was doing it to me also. Though I disabled avg before going through all of the other suggestions and it didn't fix it the first time. The final thing I did was change the permissions on the adobe folder to all everyone everything AND then disabled avg and it finally worked. Ive been able to consistently disable avg to get it started several times and feel confident that is the issue. I think I can just temp disable AVG for 10 minutes to get premiere opened. Then when avg turns back on all is good.
Here as the AVG.
I thing that in the early on April AVG made some upgrade that causes this issue.
On 04/04/2016 AVG Antivirus released a version that makes this issue at starting Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015. Check for the solution at this thread: AVG Antivirus blocking all my CC apps
At the moment, the only workaround is to disable AVG antivirus before starting Adobe.
