i am using a core 2 duo 2.8 GHZ, windows 7, video memoery 1GB, RAM 7 GB, and yet everytime i load premier and play the timeline to view premier crashes, i am unable to work, what could be the problem???
I had similar problems. I was told not to update to latest update on Premiere Pro CS4. So I did a clean install, using Adobes software to delete all installation files. After a successful installation, I did a manual update by selecting the files a wanted to update. Excluding Premiere Pro CS4 updates. That worked, no more crashes. But this means that I can no longer receive any update to my Premiere Pro, so Adobe must try to fix this bug. Incidently I also have Premiere 6,0 installed and it works fine, using the same .avi files.
Hello again, I just found out what was the problem with Premiere Pro CS4 crashing on me. It was NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS with the old driver, I have now updated my driver to version 2008-09-17 version 126.96.36.19913, and then I was downloading the Premiere Pro CS4 latest updates, that use to crash on me, but it is WORKING NOW!
