My photoshop will not open at all. I am "renting" the creative suite, and every sonce the second month things have not ben going properly. I need my photoshop
Mine was not opening either but right when you mentioned resolution I figured it out. Photoshop was opening on my wacom display and not on my monitor. I didn't think to look on my tablet since it was off. Thanks!
windows 10 iclick on the icon on desk top and it wont open
Windows 7 wont open. has any of the above helped resolve for you? NOTHING has worked for me yet!!
no message after downloaded
I get (0xc000007b)
I had to carry on working so I reinstalled an older version in my case 2015 and when I started to use it it forced the new update to work.
So any one still having problems give that one a try mine now works.
I see an error message
it keeps telling me that the program is not able to work properly
It did not work for me
I receive the same error icon. Could you tell me what to do?
When this happened to me it was due to PS not shutting down properly.
Open Task Manager and click Processes tab.
Scroll down looking for Photoshop.exe.
You may find multiple entries. Select each and end process.
Close Task Manager.
Open Photoshop using your normal shortcut.
This worked when nothing else would. Thanks!
I found a ton of them open, but closing them didnt fix the issue
This worked for me!
After trying everything else, this worked for me 🙂
I am having this problem now.
None of the information above helps.
So I went to open my photoshop, which I have had for 2 years now and it poped up with a message saying " could not initialize photoshop because the preferences file was invalid(it has been deleted)" I have not deleted anything. But I even uninstalled and reinstalled it on my computer and it is still giving me is message.
I had this problem with PS CS5 and CS6. Nothing fixed the problem, resets, restores, reinstall etc., until I discovered a problem with my USB default printer. Windows for some reason had failed to recognize it correctly, despite it having been used happily for years (an update was probably the culprit). I reinstalled the printer and bingo, Photoshop started working again.
As an aside, I had problems with Word and printers a while back - Word wouldn't start if there was a disconnected networked default printer. It looks like PS is equally as sensitive to default printers. Check out your printers before messing with PS or anything else.
I was having similar problems. PS would act like it was starting up, but it would throw up and error message about not being able to initialize. I've been running Windows 8. I just updated to Windows 8.1 and reinstalled PS. One or both of them resolved this problem for me. PS opens and runs without errors.
How do you reinstall photoshop? I just bought PS for my new Windows 8 PC and it worked the other day but now it says, "A program has caused PS to stop working correctly". Is this the problem you ran into? This is really frustrating and kind of dissapointing, because I really needed to use it today! Thank you in advance for your future help!
Have the same issue!
The only thing I need to do here is find the fix, and I have a lot of PS work piling up that I'm not able to do.
And Also, I have photoshop CC.
