Been having problems with photoshop v23.0 on my (windows 10) PC. Was working fine yesterday but all of a sudden a few days after updating to the newer version (v23.0) i all of a sudden cant open photoshop. I have tried everything i can find online, re downloaded photoshop and tried to re-create the photoshop.exe application path registry key and re started my PC countless times. but nothing has worked. 

 

Wondering if there is any fix or is this permently broken, do i now have to move to some other software as this is beyond annoying as i need photoshop for work.

got it working (not much help from adobe) but the fix is one of the top comments on this thread.
