Premier Elements Debug Event Error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello mates,

I am using Premiere Elements 8 that crashes the moment when I select Timeline within a project.

The popup window shows the error message:

“Premier Elements has encountered an error.


Once I click Continue, the program exits. Application is fully updated and I am running it on Windows XP SP3.

It seems pretty specific but I can't pin down why it is failing.

Can anyone suggest how to decode the error?

Thanks in advance
