20 Flash Panel Extension Limit

Hi, whether creating prototype scripts or installing a HTML Photoshop Script for PsCC-2015.1.2 since I have over twenty extensions for which I use installed; I get the error that there is a 20 flash panel extension limit and I can't install anymore ? I've tried changing autovisible in the manifest file from "true" to "false", that was unsuccessful.

I'm at a loss, don't tell me no one has 20 extensions installed and I'm the only one experiencing this problem

If so I can't install any other extension when working in Photoshop.

The only time a new extension works is when Photoshop loads; and in the recent version there is a open files panel, anyone with 2015.1.2 knows what I'm talking about, and there I don't see any of my other extensions, but I do see the newest extension installed, when I open a file from 2015.1.2 open file dialog and the other extensions load, the latest extension for which I installed, fires the 20 Flash Panel Extension limit, when I try to run it from Windows > Extension

Try this script to change the max value:

$.localize = true;

var countKey = stringIDToTypeID("count");

var flashCount = 10;

try {

  var d = app.getCustomOptions("flashMaxOpenOrRunning");

  if (d.hasKey(countKey)) {

  flashCount = d.getInteger(countKey);

  }

}

catch(e) { } // do nothing, must not have that option

var msg = localize("$$$/JavaScript/MaxOpenOrRunningMessage=Current max panel count:")

var newCount = prompt(msg, flashCount);

if (newCount != null) {

  var d = new ActionDescriptor();

  d.putInteger(countKey, Number(newCount));

  app.putCustomOptions("flashMaxOpenOrRunning", d);

}

Thanks it worked.

Is this script constructed by the PsDOM ?

Create a JSX file and load it as a script, followed by running the script.

Hi, I know this post is old but I was hoping someone could help clarify why I'm getting this error?

I've made the jsx file and use scripts>browse to import the script.
