Could not initialize Photoshop because there is not enough memory (RAM).

 

The message above is the first thing I get when I tried to open the newest version of photoshop 2022 version 23.3.2. I cant even get the program to load BUT when it DOES load then I cant use the move tool and I get a move tool error so I cant edit anything. About to try to reinstall the newest version of PS version 23.4.2. and restart the pc but I cant figure out why Im getting this issue at all. 

 

2nd option - uninstall Adobe and Reinstall it. 

3rd option - CLEAN WIPE EVERYTHING and reinstall Windows

 

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8 core processor

32 GB memory

Gigabyte 6500XT OC

How many megabytes is the image you're working with?

How much Scratch Disk and RAM is available to Photoshop?

Hey Nancy, 

I have windows version 21H2 and my scratch disk right now Im using 2 different HDDs. One has around 500GB and the other is 12TB and now my screen background went into a restart mode as Im typing this. Ill respond again with my programs performance settings if I can get it to open. File size doesn't even matter. I was working on a 8x10 image with 72 DPI and I couldnt use the move or type tool but that error I posted is what I get just trying to START the program.
