    Am trying to use premier (presently using FCP 7) but PPro just won’t play beyond a few frames and the playhead will go back to the start of the playhead.

    Tried the “ROOT” method, but cannot find the file “…” file to delete, as explained by Adobe at their website.

    PPro is just not working on my system.

    Macpro 5,1, 24GB RAM. ATI 5870.

    Budget always not enuff.

    Try before, doesn’t work.

    basically can’t even find the file “” to trash. Is it a hidden file?

    Chee Wee Tan,

    I believe I had the same problem as you.

    For my day-to-day computing, I login to my mac as a non-Admin user (what Apple calls a “Standard” user). I installed Adobe CS5.5 on my machine whilst logged in as standard (authenticating where necessary). It worked for a while and then stopped.

    Anyway…. back to the question and the solution (or at least it worked for me !).

    Quit all programs and log-off.
    Logon as an Admin user.
    Open programs.
    Login as normal.
    Should work !

    Thanks for solution. But does not work, anyway, since i am the only user, I am the Admin.

    Now must think how to Uninstall PPro from my computer.

    Where did you look for the file?

    Often people are in the main library and not the user library.

    Perhaps create a new user and see if the problem goes away?
