I have been running Photoshop Elements 14 on Windows 7. Recently, it stopped opening, giving me the error message that MSVCR120.dll is missing. I worked on that a while. I have since found some additional ideas to try if reinstalling doesn't solve it. But the problem is now that I am to the step of uninstalling and reinstalling the program, it won't reinstall. I continue to get the installation failed error. I have opened the log file to find that the exit error code is 0 and it is saying that the program was successfully installed but it is not installed. I am stuck at this point and would appreciate any advice anyone can give. Thanks.

Hi

Since your question is about Photoshop Elements, I have moved this from the Photoshop forum where you posted to PS Elements.

Thanks to all who have posted good instructions for opening and checking log files and other troubleshooting ideas. Really helps us non-techies. If I hadn't been too tired and out of patience last night and continued my systematic troubleshooting process, I wouldn't have had to post. Thanks again.
