I re-installed the previous camera raw after the recent update but now, I cannot 'open with' camera raw as I used to directly from Bridge.  The Camera Raw Preferences is greyed out.  I can open in camera raw from Photoshop but I used to be able to open in camera raw direct from Bridge without even opening Photoshop.  Any ideas anyone?  

Thanks

I absolutely hate the new RAW and feel Adobe made a mistake by changing the UI. Luckily, I have more than one computer so I am able to use the old RAW on one. Have you made sure you set the the old RAW back as the default software to open a RAW file? I assume once RAW update was installed it was automatically set as the default, then when you removed it to go back to the older version, the default did not change.

Thanks for your reply.

As the old camera raw works ok in Photoshop since I reinstalled it, I assume that it is the default software.  I'm not sure how to check.  It's simply that it doesn't work straight from Bridge any more and I can't find a way of activating it as the 'camera raw preferences' tab is greyed out in Bridge.

You should be able to open ACR from Bridge. Maybe reset the preferences in Bridge.

I cannot reset the preferences in Bridge because it is greyed out.  I cannot find any other way of activating camera raw directly in Bridge.

You might need to reinstall Bridge.

Thanks.  Yes I tried that already.  I tried installing Bridge and Photoshop!  I wonder if the last update of Bridge will only work with the latest version of Camera Raw.  If it were me, I would just get used to the new version of Camera Raw but it's for my husband who doesn't like change!  I am trying to persuade him to try to live with the new version of Camera Raw and get used to it!!

I installed an older version of Bridge. On the Adobe Cloud app, click the three dots next to the Bridge icon and select "other versions." I had also installed the previous camera raw (https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-in-installer.html#12_x) and had your same problem of not being able to access it using the most recent Bridge update. Using the older version of Bridge fixed this problem for me. AND it is using the previous version of Camera Raw, blessedly.

As stated above
You can revert to the previous version of Camera Raw 12.2.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-in-installer.html#12_x

Also downgrade Bridge to 10.0.4 and the madness that is biased towards lightroom users has gone and harmony is restored
