The file could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop 2022 could not be launched

All of a sudden I'm having issues opening images in the latest version of Photoshop using the latest version of LRC. After selecting the "Edit in..." option, there's a long hang (about 30 seconds or so), then a LRC alert pops up that reads "The file could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop 2022 could not be launched." I have Photoshop 2022 open and running. When I click "Okay", THEN the image opens in PS!

 

Any idea what the problem is?

Use the Creative Cloud application and uninstall both Photoshop and Lightroom but when asked, keep the preferences.

Then install Photoshop first, followed by Lightroom. Better?

No, this solution didn't work.  I just upgraded to the latest LRC and PS and used your recommended proceedure.  It worked the first time I tried to edit, and a changed tif was returned to LRC. 

 

But then when I tried again on a second image, and   nothing happens for a few minutes, and then a message appears "a file could not be edited bacause Adobe Photoshop 2022 could not be launched." then LR generates and returns a .tif file as if it had recevied an image from PS.  And now I cannot start PS, even if I run as an Administrator.  I had the identical problem with the previous version combination..

 

I'm using Win10, LRC 11.5 , Build 202208080927-8a575c91; Camera Raw 14.5  PS 23.5
