Today Adobe Media Encoder CC suddenly stopped working and I was unable to render my After Effects projects (.aep) with Adobe Media Encoder CC. Whenever I had tried to access Adobe Media Encoder CC, it simply didn’t open at all.
Fix Adobe Media Encoder CC Not Opening Error
There is a bug in Adobe Media Encoder CC, and it can be fixed by removing a file named as “X19zbGNfZmVhdHVyZXNfXw==.slc” from SLCache folder as shown in the following path.
Open the file (C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\SLCache\X19zbGNfZmVhdHVyZXNfXw==.slc) in any text editor, delete all of the contents, save it, and set the file to read-only.
Easy way to do it, create a new .txt document, paste the following commands into that .txt file and save it as a batch file with .bat file extension. Now whenever you will run Adobe Media Encoder CC, the file “X19zbGNfZmVhdHVyZXNfXw==.slc” will be automatically removed. If you had set the file as read-only in the above mentioned method, please make sure to uncheck read-only box before using the following batch file.
del “C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\SLCache\X19zbGNfZmVhdHVyZXNfXw==.slc”
start “AME” “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder CC\Adobe Media Encoder.exe”
This way your Adobe Media Encoder CC will be fixed and you will be able to start working on it normally. Are you also facing the similar bug? Follow the method mentioned above and I am sure it will fix your issue. Let me know in the comments section below. 🙂
