I recently haven't been able to run Photoshop 2021 in Windows 10. I get the error code "The application was not able to start correctly (0xc0000142)", and it won't load.  I have Windows 10 build 2004 with all available updates.  My NVidia graphics drivers are up-to-date.  I have uninstalled Photoshop and reinstalled. It worked before the last PS update, which i just installed a couple days ago. Lightroom Classic works fine.  Running out of things to try. Thanks

reset your preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

 

if that fails, install ps using the install the cc desktop app from here https://creativecloud.adobe.com/apps/all/desktop?action=install&source=apps&productId=creative-cloud...

 

if you have trouble downloading, use the alternative download site at page bottom here, https://helpx.adobe.com/in/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-desktop-app-download.html

 

if that fails, google that window's error.  there's probably a system file and/or profile corruption that needs repair.

Thanks for the reply.  I reset the preferences and re installed PS and still had the problem.  However I was able to fix some IPP files and it works now.
