Droplet couldn't communicate with Photoshop

When I try using a droplet it pops up and says "Droplet couldn't communicate with Photoshop".

I'm running Windows 7, Photoshop CS5, and I am the administrator.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Photoshop 12.0.1 should have fixed the known droplet issues.

I'm old enough to remember when photoshop actually worked -- with very few bugs. Those days are long gone. Now, with each new update, the current photoshop crew disgraces the Knoll bros.

Hi again...Same thing happened again to me. I dropped a file unto my droplet and no problem. (I may have accepeted the compatibilty on screen request befor the 2nd drop?). Later on I dropped my files and the dreaded msg came up !
I tried to retraced what I had done vaguely remembering something about compatibility. But ran the w10 trouble shooting pgr. My first attempt did not work but the next option did. 
Now I'm looking at the droplet propriety under Compatility tab. I can see there is a tick in the box for: Run the comp mode for W7. As well in the Administrator box.. 
I'll try to join the screen pic from the trouble shooting that I tested and has been ok since. 
BTW I thought there was a 25 pic limit at one go but found out there does not seem to be a limit on the number. so it seems a whole folder may be processed with no prob. (I usually do this for photos I want to replace on my phone at lower 'weight' ie 4mb into 400 bytes)

Got it to work in October 2022.

What I did:
Updated Photoshop
Ran Photoshop as admin and created droplet
Right clicked on the saved droplet > properties >Compatibility tab (as in the image below) and checked the 'Run this program as administrator' box was ticked. Hit Apply, then ok. Then droplet worked.

The same also worked if I created droplet NOT as admin and then checked the 'Run this program as administrator' box WASN'T ticked.

Moral of the story, if you droplet isn't working, try just making that checkbox the opposite and it might just work for ya. Good luck.
