    Hi,
    We have some computers in our IT suite that keep crashing after macromedia MX 2004 7.0 has opened for a couple of seconds, I've had a look at the event viewer and it says:

    I'm surprised it ever worked. We gave up on MX 2004 when we went to Vista as it never worked for us on anything but XP.

    When did it stop working for you?

    We are upgrading in the summer but our Macomedia MX Studio 2004 is still playing nicely on our Windows 7 workstations here.

    I realise this is an old thread now but did you ever solve the crash problem? We are having the same issue here. Cheers

    We are having the same problem, a student was using Flash, and then it just crashed... No idea why. It was perfectly ok on Win XP CC3, but now on Windows 7 Vanilla, it crashes all time.

    I still haven't managed to get this working so we are looking at buying an upgraded version. I have discovered an interesting one though - you can make it carsh 100% of the time by doing the following:

    Open flash, on the left side you will have the Tools pallette. Rather than clicking on one of the tools, click on the gray space between them. As soon as I do this it crashes!

    I have tried installing on both 32bit and 64bit Windows 7 and have also installed the update to version 7.?? whatever it is. No use, it even crashes logged on as an administrator

    edit - tried running in compatibility mode etc, no joy

    There is a fix for this, when you set the theme of windows 7 from basic or any other to classic the crash issue is gone. Not once. no matter what it is its gone.

    this solutions was found by my colleague who saw the same issue with other software. so Kudos to him.

    This definitely works on the administrator accounts. We're currently seeing how to implement this in through AD and How long it works.

    Edit-
    Finally solved.

    When you have set the machine to Windows Classic Theme.
    You then need to stop and disable the "Theme" service.
    This has solved it for us. Sorry for the wish wash of information

    Let me know how this works for you
