So far I haven't had any problems, but Photoshop just doesn't start for a few days.

It will show up in Task Manager, but nothing else will happen.

I recently installed an older version, started it in compatibility mode and as admin. That worked for a day. The next day this did not work either.

 

Please help!

 

My system:
- Windows 10 64-bit
- AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core Processor 3.79 GHz

64.0 GB of RAM

Geforce RTX 2080 Super

Hi

Have you tried resetting your Photoshop preferences

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

If that doesn't help try using the Adobe cleaner tool

I tried the CC-Cleaner-Tool, but no effect.

So i tried the following things already:

- CC Cleaner Tool

- Re-install Photoshop a few times 

- tried to install different "older" versions

- deleted all temp files (appdata)

 

Any other suggestions?
I'm really confused, cause it worked for month on this computer.

i kinda wanna avoid to deinstall the whole cc-suite.

"Photoshop still doesn't start, so i cant get access to the preferences"

The preferences file can be found in this location, just delete the Adobe Photoshop 2021 Prefs file

C:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Adobe Photoshop 2021 Settings
