  1. AIGPUSniffer quit unexpectedly.

    Adobe Illustrator CC 2018

    When trying to open Ai files through Bridge, I get this error:

    'AIGPUSniffer quit unexpectedly.'

    and the file fails to open. I don't experience this issue when opening the same file through finder or through the 'Open' dialog box.

  2. AI 18 won't launch

    I upgraded to the new AI18 from CC and it fails to launch on startup. It fails at the point it is initializing the plug-ins. I am using a Surface Pro 2 with Windows 10. AI17 worked fine and reinstalled and it still works. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

  4. Error on Launch: "There is no disk in the drive" -

    I figured out that I only get this error when my USB3 memory card reader is connected to my computer, but it is ridiculous. I have to click cancel 30+ times in rapid succession and then Illustrator will launch, but I can't find ANYWHERE in Illustrator that is referencing my E:/ drive - HELP!

  5. Illustrator CC 2017 crashes computer on macOS 10.13 High Sierra

    I didn't know there were serious compatibility issues between Adobe CC and macOS 10.13 High Sierra until after I upgraded.

    Within seconds of launching Illustrator it freezes my entire machine and my only option is a hard reboot.

    Please provide a status update on when this issue will be fixed. I rely on CC for my job and will have to migrate back to 10.12 Sierra in the interim.

  7. Illustrator keeps opening its self, even after I close it/force quit it.

    I used it to open a PNG file accidentally, and tried to force quit it immediately. but it just kept opening its self, even after I let it load fully, and then quit it.

  9. Dialog Box Behind App - Force Quit

    1. 21.1.0 (macOS sierra v10.12.6 (16G29))

    2. This is happening more and more, and usually when first opening the application. If some dialog box, typically a warning or something, pops up but for some reason then gets pushed behind or hidden by the main app window, there is no way to get back to it and no way for the app to function. Trying to click on ANY part of the app just gets the "no - beep", the sound that plays when you are trying to do something but something else has to happen first... like if a warning box pops…

  10. Error 16 Reinstall Software? (AI 2017.1.0 - 21.1.0 - MacOS 10.12.6)

    On a MacBook Pro (Retina 15in Mid 2014) if I open up and use Mail and Safari first then open up Illustrator or Photoshop I often get Error 16 which insists I uninstall and reinstall the Illustrator program. However, if I shut down or restart my computer, the program opens up just fine without reinstalling it.

    Why do I get this error message?
    Is there anything I can do to stop getting it?
    Perhaps the message should just instruct people to restart their computer instead of doing a lengthy uninstall - reinstall?

  11. Illustrator Freezes + This Website Broken

    So I open an .ai in the latest version of Illustrator, everything works. I open another .ai file, everything freezes / stops working. I need to use Task Manager to close Illustrator. I reinstalled it, same issue.

    Regarding the website, when I click in Illustrator to submit a bug, it sends me to https://illustrator.uservoice.com/ where the 'Bug' button does not do anything. Are you for real, Adobe?!?!

    I managed to do a video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rTNATEzgjk - but of course, this time the program did not freeze.

  12. Illustrator will not start. Adobe Illustrator quit unexpectedly during the previous launch....Run Diagnostics or Launch Ilustrator

    Illustrator was working fine for the last year on this computer and yesterday decided it did not want to start anymore. All other adobe products open just fine, except illustrator. I've been searching for the last hour for answers and nothing. What gives adobe.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, adobe cc cleaner, deleted prefs, and still keeps crashing.

    Here's what happens:
    1. Click on launch Illustor from Creative Cloud app. The Creative cloud app blinks for a second as if its trying to open illustrator but nothing.
    2. Click on Launch again. Popup - Adobe Illustrator quit unexpectedly....Click Run Diagnostics…
