Unable to start Adobe Creative Cloud applications like Premier Pro or Lightroom error (0xc0000005)

by admin in Artiklar

“The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005). Click OK to close the application or error with VulcanMessage5.dll”

Had a customer with the problem and looked trough some forum posts suggestion downgrading or disable 3D support on applications. It was not successful in our case.

We could not uninstall or repair. We downloaded Creative Cloud but it just ended without cause.

Looking trough Event Viewer (Start – Run – eventvwr) I saw this error in application logs :

I figured something was wrong with the VulcanMessage5.dll library. Maybe an update caused this.

How we solved this in our case

We stopped all Adobe processes in Task Manager.

In Explorer we located to the folder : C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\ and renamed the folder TCC to _TCC (instead of just deleting it, rename it).

Then we started Creative Cloud (right click, run as administrator) and let it repair itself.

After this we had no issue.
