I've installed (and uninstalled and reinstalled and cleaned and reinstalled) Creative Cloud and Photoshop and can't get Photoshop to run. What can I do to get it running?
My software and OS versions are the latest default installs as of this week:
Photoshop Creative Cloud version 22.3.1
Windows 10 Home version 20H2 build 19042.928
Here's what happens:
When starting Photoshop in any of the different ways I can think of -- within Creative Cloud app, and from Creative Cloud web, and from the Windows desktop environment -- the splash screen gets to displaying "Initializing...", and then an "Error Report" window pops up which says "Adobe Photoshop has encountered a problem and needs to close." Clicking on "View report" creates the window "Error report details" which has no contents, ie, no details.
In previous installs where I was having the "Error report", the error report popped up later in the boot process, than now, when it's popping up during "Initializing..." I guess this is some sort of progress, but it's not the kind I want -- I want to use this darn wonderful program I'm paying for!
I've already uninstalled and reinstalled and used the Cloud Cleaner App. On a previous install, before I used Cloud Cleaner, I went through a long process of trying to fix permissions and that didn't help anything.
Any ideas that are likely to work?
