BUG: "AE CC 2019 Hangs on Initialize MediaCore Stage"
AE CC 2019 v16.1.2 - Startup hangs for a long time on Initialize MediaCore Stage. This is caused by the Adobe Dynamic Link Manager CC 2019 Process taking a long time to initiate for some reason.
It works perfectly in AE CC 2018. v15.1.2 The Adobe Dynamic Link Manager CC 2018 Process loads up right away allowing the program to launch right away. No freezing or hanging on the Initialize MediaCore stage
If you rename the dynamiclinkmanager.exe file that is located in your C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC 2019\Support Files to ex. "DynamicLInkManager_backup.exe". This will allow you to get past the initializing MediaCore stage and the program
launches. Unfortunately the dynamic link between AE and Media Encoder will not work now
Hope this helps you get to the bottom of this annoying bug
