CS2: Frozen progress dialog (Win XP Pro) - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hi! we have the same problem with the progress bar that don't go away. The teacher send me a copy of a Illustrator CS2 file and she say that the student have this problem sometimes. The file is 1.12Megs big, and the computers running are P4, 512M with WinXPsp2. The file has a link to another file, but even if I remove the link there's always the same problem. If we just do a copy/paste of a square already there, just a few line is copied, then if I try to resize this copy the progress dialog show up and ...

    Hi! we have the same problem with the progress bar that don't go away.

    The file has a link to another file, but even if I remove the link there's always the same problem. If we just do a copy/paste of a square already there, just a few line is copied, then if I try to resize this copy the progress dialog show up and never close.

    Does the patch will be available to the public, or is there a way to get it?
    thank you,

    Eric.

    Eric,

    The fix for the bug in Copy/Pasting nested compound shapes is available, in the 12.0.1 update which has been described in many other threads.

    It is not clear whether or not the problem you describe is the same issue. As Adam describes, you can get the situation with the unremovable progress bar on Windows if the application essentially "crashes" while a progress bar is up. (On the Mac you just get "the application has unexpectedly quit". On Windows you often get "the application keeps stumbling along but acts really weird". The actual application code is doing the same thing in both cases, but the operating system responds differently. Windows tries to keep the dying horse on its feet longer.)

    Whether or not the two problems are related would depend on what operations were going on while the progress bar was up. I can't tell from your description whether or not the pasted content may have included nested compound shapes. (You would generate a nested compound shape by using the Pathfinder buttons on some selected paths, then selecting the resulting compound shape together with some more paths, and doing another Pathfinder operation.)

    Ok now it works. I was searching for the update in the download section.

    Thanks!
