Attention Canadians: After Effects is 100% American

Here’s some geeky info reblogged from Beckleyworks. Hopefully it will prevent someone’s afternoon headache. I tried to launch Adobe After Effects 6.5 Pro recently and was greeted with the message “KCHR Resource not found. Keyboard shortcuts will be disabled.” When they say keyboard shortcuts, they mean everything – you can’t even use the space bar or delete key. The short answer to a long search is that After Effects needs a U.S. keyboard and if like mine, yours switches occasionally to Canadian keys, the software simply will not understand you. Like when you ask where the Americans put your “runners”, they have no idea what you are talking about.
