Error message when exporting from LIghtroom to Photoshop for editing

After upgrading both Lightroom and Photoshop to the most current versions, when I select 'edit in Photoshop' while in Lightroom, Photoshop opens with an error message that says "layer via copy is not available." If Photoshop is not open I do not get this error message.

But it consistently happens every time I try to edit in PS from Lightroom.

Once I clear the error message, the image opens normally. But this should not be happening, did not happen in the past, and is a pain and time consuming to have to clear each time.

Windows 11, LR Classic 11.5, PS 23.5.1

Suggestions for fixing this would be appreciated. Thanks.

If Photoshop IS ALREADY OPEN I do not get this error message...only if it's closed does it appear.

When the 'link' between Lightroom Classic and Photoshop has issues, one of the first things to try is this:
1. Use the Adobe Creative Cloud application to uninstall both Photoshop and Lightroom Classic, and when asked, keep preferences. 
2. Install Photoshop first, then Lightroom Classic. 
Better?
