Elements won't run
After Adobe took control of my MacbookPro yesterday for about 5 hours, they finally got Premier Elements 11 to install as a trial. However, it does not launch. Adobe says there are some font issues that are hanging it up. When I launch it runs thru the loading of stuff as usual but stalls on loading SmartsoundAdobeplugin.

Anybody have suggestions as to how to get past this so it launches? thanks.

Macbook Pro Intel i7, 8GB ram

Which version of OSX?

Is it a standard install or have you removed unwanted parts like additional languages etc?

10.7.5 Tried to install just the audio portion of the package and still gets hung up there.

I mean the OSX install. Is it a fresh, out-of-the-box install or have you removed components like unused langauges etc?

Was out of the box. No special removals done that I'm aware of.

Run repair permissions from Disk Utility, then try again.

If that doesn't work create a new user and try and install in there

I'll give that a try. Thanks.

I spent multiple hours over several days trying to get that program installed including web chat with Adobe. The web chat was particularly annoying since if anything went wrong during the chat (dropped connection, accidentally closing window, etc) you had to start the whole process over reentering all of the system info asked for at the beginning of the chat.

In my case the install would hang very early on in the process. My advice, skip right to creating a new (clean) user account and try installing from there. That installer seems to be very twitchy.
