I installed Adobe Illustrator CS5 about three weeks ago on my Windows 7 Notebook and it has been running amazingly. However, like everyone else it just closed immediately after I opened it last night.
I'm in the final trimester, about to graduate with my Bachelor's in Graphic Design and this couldn't have happened at a worse time!
My final research project is such a big deal! Any further advice other than those recommended in previous posts?

hey guys, i'm having the same issue and neither of the links posted have the file anymore. can someone upload it?

hey guys, i may of found the file on my server, so heres a download link, and if szomeone could give it a try?



UPDATE Just tested this on my own PC, it works!

Download the file and place it in:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Illustrator\Support Files\Contents\Windows For 32 Bit OS
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Illustrator\Support Files\Contents\Windows For 64 Bit OS

it didn't work for me. I got an error when i tried to open the application after i placed the dll file in windows for 64 bit. the error told me to uninstall and reinstall :[

thats a shame. Ill keep on looking on the web, if there are any updates ill be posting them here!

Thanks kingbrill, i will let you know how i get on tonight with this new file

May not of made it clear, but that file is for 32bit installations of CS5 only.

That file was also deleted!! DAMN., some please upload it agian.. pleasee

Nope i still have the file, i have a new download server which im in the process of starting, i will let you know when my server is up and running.

The file was deleted again, please someone upload it once agian, I will be very grateful!

ditto, would be very grateful if somebody can upload this file (for the 64-bit version)
