Hi all.  I just downloaded the latest PS update successfully -- or so I thought -- but when it loads, it freezes and gives an error message, Request not acted on due to a programming error.  I can't even shut it down.  I have to go to Windows 10 Task Manager and close it there.  What do I do now?  Thanks.

Same thing happened to me. I uninstalled and reinstalled and the same thing is happening. I'm on a Mac running Catalina. I went back to PS 2020 and will wait for Adobe to fix the bug...

I also see that some people are using Windows and others are using macOS.  Please indicate which operating system you are using in addition to the fatal error you are encountering.

Thanks, Default. I only see a warning, though; there are no fatal errors, only warnings within the log snippet you posted.  Please open the log file in your favorite text editor and then do a search for FATAL.  If that can't be found, then try searching for ERROR.

 

The log is appended to each time, so the most recent errors will be at the bottom of the file.

I am sorry to hear that, CecilC. Which anti-virus software title did you temporarily disable?  What type of Creative Cloud membership are you using?  There is no membership assigned to the e-mail address you used to post to this public discussion forum.

@Jeff A Wright I tried to follow the step in the link, but the folder that is causing the error, that the fix wants me to delete or rename doesn't exist.  The list of apps in the folder contains Photoshop 2021 but it only got to 75% this time, even after dabling my anti-virus (Cylance).

Unfortunately, I didn't save the error message.  It was similiar to what others have reported here. 

I had tried all the things listed. Turning off anti-virus etc.... nothing worked.  

 

I gave up.   

 

Then I tried the update about a week later and it magically worked.

 

You tell me what happened.

Experiencing the exact same issue  From Creative Cloud desktop, attempted to upgrade to Photoshop 2021 (v22) on Windows 10 but fails..  I uninstalled and tried again.  Install fails at 86% with Error 183.  I was able to install Phtotshop 2020 (v21) without issues. I talked with Adobe Chat support  They even logged remotely into my computer and could not resolve the issue (they just disconnected after an hour)

FATAL: Error (Code = 183) executing in command 'RunProgramCommand' for package: 'AdobePhotoshop22-Core_x64', version:22.0.0.35
FATAL: Error occurred in install of package (Name: AdobePhotoshop22-Core_x64 Version: 22.0.0.35). Error code: '183'

KenichiM, I would encourage you to use the process listed in https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/customer-support-portal.html if your support case is unresolved.

 

You are welcome to implement the solutions listed in https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/fix-error-183.html, but if you continue to encounter problems, please update your support case so that it can be escalated if necessary.  In addition, if your computer is managed by an organization, then none of the solutions in this public discussion forum will help you.  You will want to work with your Internal Help desk or post to the Enterprise & Teams forums at https://community.adobe.com/t5/enterprise-teams/bd-p/enterprise-and-teams.

Don't bother posting to the Enterprise and Teams forum, I posted yesterday and today and have yet to get any replies at all.

 

It is a bit ridiculous you would send out this update with no idea it doesn't work for so many customers, and have zero plans to actually fix it (instead requiring customers to jump through hoops instead). 

 

I cannot use Photoshop at all, InDesign is buggy, it's a terrible upgrade.

AnitaLalo, I am sorry you are encountering difficulties obtaining help. It looks like your organization purchased a Creative Cloud for Team membership, you can use the Contact Us link located at the bottom https://helpx.adobe.com/enterprise/teams.html to receive assistance from a Creative Cloud for Team Expert.

 

There is no point in you implementing the solutions in this public discussion thread because they do not apply to the managed computer environment that your organization is utilizing.

Seems like numerous people are having the error.  Instead of each person reaching out to Adobe or Adobe Enterprise, is Adobe lookinginto this issue?

KenichiM, there is not a large trend of people encountering Error 183. I would recommend you ignore the people posting who have a Creative Cloud for Team or Enterprise membership, as their managed environments are completely different than an individual user.  Please update your support case, if you haven't already, so that your case can be escalated if necessary.

 

I also have updated the discussion title because people on both macOS and Windows responded to the discussion based on the percentage of where the installation gets stuck. Nine out of 10 times, the percentage is irrelevant, and the actual error needs to be identified and then resolved.
