Since updating CC and lightroom today I can no longer Edit in CC 2014.  I've deleted the LR preferences file restarted LR but it still doesn't open the image in CC 2014 although it does start CC 2014.  If I do Edit In>Open as a Smart Object in CC 2014 it opens OK.  Tried searching for the problem on Adobe site but not found anything.  Any help gratefully received

It's a pain but I uninstalled PS CC 2014 and killed all preferences and presets and then reinstalled. now it work fine.

I also had to uninstall PS2014 to get the Edit In to work. I wonder if, while upgrading, upgrading LR first, THEN PS would have prevented this all? If so, this should be documented somewhere.

The solution worked for me as well; it's an unfortunate first experience with Lightroom after having to migrate from Apple Aperture. It's ironic that Apple Aperture seems to work more seamlessly with Adobe Photoshop than Adobe Lightroom.

Guess I'm a member of this club, but accidentally found something interesting. I don't have this issue if the file is a JPEG, AND if I select "Edit Original" or "Edit Copy" is picked, if that box pops up. Selecting "Edit a copy with Lightroom adjustments" brings on the same issue, None of my Canon (CR2) raw files will open.

Windows 8.1, Lightroom 5.5, Photoshop CC 2014, ACR 8.5

I agree! Uninstalling and reinstalling by removing all preferences is NOT a solution!! Adobe is worse than Apple - do what they say or take a hike - forget about the customers! I work all over the country and internet access is not a luxury I have all over. How must I uninstall and reinstall CC over a 512kbps internet connection??? Get things right FIRST time Adobe!! I pay just as much as the guy with a 100mbps connection, not out of choice but because Adobe set the standards!

There is NO NEED to reinstall anything.

Just follow the instructions in the Lightroom Help document "Edit In doesn't work in Lightroom 5.5 from Photoshop CC 2014" (which has been on the Lightroom FAQ page for a week now, though people don't seen to bother reading it).

Thank you Dave. The downside of forums is that all information is scattered all over the place and if your search isn't specific enough you don't always get the correct answers. I did not search for "Edit in". Appreciate your help!

Unfortunately this solution didn't work either.... The 2nd solution on this page is basically also a re-install. So... THERE IS a need to reinstall!

An in-place repair is different to uninstalling and reinstalling; it will only replace the missing or corrupted entries (which in this case are a handful of small files).

When you say the first option didn't work - can you provide more details; operating system, if there were any error messages, etc.

I understand it only replaces missing or corrupted files, but over a 512kbps internet connection this is as impossible as a re-install.

With the first option there is no error messages or any indication that it is actually trying to do something. I am also wondering if the instructions are correct for Windows 32 and 64-bit, shouldn't the 2 paths be swopped around? 32-bit = (x86) and 64-bit just Program Files?

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, and I have copied the files into the relevant folders. The confusing part is that there is a "Startup Scripts CC 2014" in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe folder and a "Startup Scripts CC" folder in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe - But doesn't matter if I paste the script in any of these 2 folders, nothing happens when I restart Photoshop.

Dave - Option 2 from your "solution" doesn't work either! There is no option for Photoshop CC 2014 in Previous versions, only plain old Photoshop!

I can confirm that the first option explained in the Lightroom KB worked for me! However, I am on a Mac (OSX 10.9.4).  Had the same problem as mentioned in this thread and searched for possible solutions for hours, until I saw D. Merchant's reply.

On a Mac there are two libraries. It is important to know that the 'Startup Scripts CC' folder and the downloaded files are in the system library and NOT in the user library.

After putting the files in the correct place it worked fine, without any reinstalling. Took me two minutes.

You have to roll out the menu on the "Install" button to see it:

Actually neither one of those options worked for me.  I had to uninstall then reinstall CC2014 I kept my preferences so it wasn't a big loss other than in time.  The key is not to update PS before updating LR.  You'd think that Adobe would have tested for that or if they know somehow let the users know that there is a proper order in which to update.

Yes, it's not working for me either - this is the most ridiculous thing!  And I'm paying Adobe how much every month for this misery? I will try what you suggested, which I think is uninstall both Ps and Lr, then reload Lr first, then Ps after that?  Of ALL THE THINGS they can't get right!?!?
