I have issues while trying to edit a photo from Lightroom in elements 2021. Ehen I start the Lightroom dialog to transfer a file to Elements, I get the following message, "The file could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor could not be launched.". While this message is appearing in Lightroom, My elements 2021 application has been launched but no file has been moved. Next, I get the Lightroom message: "Lightroom was unable to prepare the selected file........for editing. It will not be launched.".
As soon as I click OK to each of these messages, The file transfers to Elements and Elements works perfectly. Each time this happens, it takes about 5 minutes of my workflow time. I contacted Photoshop Support. My first contact took about 2 hours of my time while I had to produce a receipt proving that my software had been purchased by me (even though I am registered as a user on their website). Then, the call center person indicated that a support person would call me back. I was given a 50 hour window when the support person would return my call. 48 hurs into my wait, the support person called me and basically told me that probably Lightroom 5 would not work with elements 2021. I explained that they are working together and asked how to get rid of the messages. They are working on it. In the meantime, I should just go to the subscription based application (not in my lifetime).
Has anyone had a similar problem with Lightroom 5 and Elements 2021?
