This article describes what to do when the Proof task fails with the following error message: "Error while initializing CMS".
Whenever the color strategy can't be applied on the input file you get the following error: "Error while initializing CMS".
There are multiple reasons why a color strategy can't be applied but if the RIP log also contains the "Error while getting page settings" error, then you're dealing with a corrupt output device.
Create a new output device and define the settings again.
