When I select a few objects with the edit object tool and right click to choose edit objects, I get an alert reading: Acrobat cannot start the object editing application you've specified. Verify the object editing application location on the TouchUp panel in Preferences. I have triple checked and I have my Photoshop program selected for the Image Editor and my Illustrator program selected for the Page/Object Editor. Why won't it allow me to open objects in these programs?

Same problem here.
I looked everywhere and couldn't find a solution to the problem. My Acrobat was updated today, but the issue remains.

I got this working, at least currently by in preferences - security enhanced, turning off, "enable protected mode at startup"

See if that works, I also updated my security certs in Trust Managers, which restarted Acrobat, and after that Photoshop opened as normal when I used edit image.
