Photoshop 22.4.2, Lightroom CC Classic  10.3 release, Camera Raw 13.3 Windows 10

 

After installing  Lightroom CC Classic and Photoshop CC 2021 twice, I am still unable to use Edit in> Open as smart object menu item to send any file from Lightroom to Photoshop although it is not grayed out.  After a long delay I get this error message in Lightroom:

"The fille could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop 2021 could not be launded."

Both programs are GPU enabled. The command worked fine until I installed the three updates for Camera Raw (1st) and Lightroom and Photoshop instaled, uninstalled and reinstalled. Now I have to open the file in Photoshop as a smart object a smar object and then edit it in Camera Raw if I wish to see my editing in Lightroom cC using the xmp file.

So, then, are the originals available to LrC? Are they missing?

specifically the section "Identifying Images with Smart Previews"
