Premiere Pro CS6 and likely older editions

"Error 213:11" when attempting to launch Premiere Pro CS6 as a non-administrator; application launches once, presents pop-up error, then exits. Subsequent launches display the pop-up message only.


Grant Modify permissions to the BUILTIN\Users local group for the following folders:

%programfiles%\Common Files\Adobe

The locations may vary depending on the version of Windows, but the environment variables are correct starting from 64-bit Windows XP. Example command lines:

cacls "%programfiles%\common files\adobe" /e /t /g Users:c
cacls "%allusersprofile%\adobe" /e /t /g Users:c

While this might be enough to make Premiere work, some Adobe community members reported that the Encore component will not write to a dual layer DVD without administrator access regardless. Saving DVD images to .ISO or similar files and using an alternate image writing utility may work around Encore's limitation.

WARNING: These steps will expose the listed folders to potential misuse by non-administrators.
