Photo editor won't load after activating Premiere Elements video program

I've been using Photoshop Elements 2019 photo editor since April 2019. Last week I activated Premiere Elements to use the video editor. I don't know if it's related, but now photo editor won't load! There's a box saying it is loading as usual, but nothing appears. I bought both Adobe Photoshop Elements 2019 and Premiere Elements last April from Amazon. Should I uninstall and reinstall? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Can you right-click on the application and choose “Run as Administrator”

If the Editor launches you can go to:

Edit >> Preferences >> General

Then click the button to reset the preferences on next launch.

Thank you 99jon.

 

Windows 10 V: 1903, 64bit, processor Intel(R)Core(TM) i5-2320 CPU @ 3.00GHz 3.30 GHz, RAM 16.0, 2TB

 

Adobe Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements both V. 17.

 

I tried to open theeditor from Program files:Adobe>Photoshop Elements 2019>PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe, but the application file for PhotoshopElementsEditor does not have the exe extension and clicking on it does not open the program.

 

And I have restarted the computer which did not help.

If you scroll down to the files beginning with “P” you should see PhotoshopElementsEditor (the application)  the image below is for the 2020 version but you should have similar in the PSE 2019 folder.

 

Try holding down the three keys Ctrl+Alt +Shift and right-click on the application and choose open. Timing is critical so release the three keys after a couple of seconds and you should see a pop up. Click yes to delete the settings. The Editor should hopefully launch and the preference settings will get re-built.

Thank you. I have been holding down the three keys and right clicking open
on the correct application file, but no box pops up other than the original
open box. Maybe I am doing something wrong.
I did receive an email from Adobe saying:

We would like to inform you that PSE & PRE 2019 is no longer supported with
Windows 10 64 Bit Latest Update. If you will try to install or update it
further then it will create conflict with your system. so we can do is we
provide you the PSE & PRE 2020 so you can able to start your work in a
proper way.

This is odd as Premiere 2019 still loads and works. And I've had these
programs for less than a year. Do you think I should uninstall and
reinstall photoshop? I really appreciate your help!

Thank you so much! I tried this a couple of times and nothing. Then I tried opening in sandbox and that didn't work. Then I tried "Run as Administrator" again. An adobe window popped up asking me to sign in and for the serial number which I entered and then Photoshop loaded. Using it now and I am resetting the preferences on next launch.

Do you think this has something to do with a Windows 10 update? Anyway, I really appreciate your time and help!

How did you receive this email and from what address?  Did you initiate the contact.  It seems very odd to me and may be a scammer trying to sell you a bogus product.

I believe you may be right.

- When I asked what Windows 10 update corrupted Photoshop so I could possibly uninstall it, they didn't reply except to offer Premiere and Photoshop 2020 elements for $110! Do you want to see those emails? I was told Adobe doesn't support Ebay, Best Buy, or Amazon "products". I didn't buy an Amazon product, I purchased two Adobe products from Amazon. 

I wasn't about to buy these programs again. I thought either Adobe was shady or more likely, I wasn't communicating with Adobe. Should I report this somewhere? Thanks for your help.

Thanks for letting us know about this.  This particular scammer has already been reported, so no need for you to do anything further.  There is an Announcement at the top of the forum explaining how to identify a true Adobe employee.

 

Added:  The email was actually from Adobe notifying you that you had received a Private Message (from the scammer).

I wouldn’t expect a Windows update to change anything. Sometimes the pref settings can get a bit goofy which is why Adobe provides that button to reset. Glad you got things working.

 

N.B. As Greg says take care with private messages. Adobe would never use a Gmail account.
