  • Photoshop CS4 will not launch after installing Yosemite.

    Photoshop CS4 will not launch after installing Yosemite. All the other CS4 apps open. I upgraded Java. Genius Bar could not get it to launch.

    Here's the fix I found, by way of an explanation...
    Snow Leopard prompted me on my first startup with the following error:
    "There is a conflict with the _______ font file. This font file contains a font name that conflicts with a system font required by Mac OS X to display onscreen text. You should move this font file to the Trash."
    The fonts it said were conflicting: Helvetica, HelveticaNeue.dfont, Lucida Grande, and Monaco. I figured Snow Leopard probably wanted to replace these fonts with newer versions, and so I clicked "Move to Trash" on all four.
    Apparently 10.6 trashed these fonts but didn't replace them. This was causing Photoshop to crash on load.
    So I restored my ~/Library/Fonts folder from a backup made just before upgrading and this time after a reboot I said "Allow Conflict" on all four dialog boxes and launched Photoshop... everything is back to normal!
    Not sure what kind of "conflict" it's referring to, but apparently moving these font files to the trash as OS X prompted me to do broke a number of apps. Should I report this as a bug?
    Thanks for the ideas!

  • Photoshop CS4 will not launch after upgrade to 10.6

    I just upgraded to Snow Leopard and found that Adobe Photoshop CS4 crashes every time during launch, moments after the splash screen disappears. I ran the Adobe Updater to see if there was a patch for this, but no go. I've already upgraded to 10.6.1 to no avail.
    Photoshop is my livelihood and I'd sure appreciate some help getting this fixed before it starts to cost me! Any ideas?
    Thanks a lot,

    Try reinstalling from your discs or download a fresh Photoshop Mac CS4 installer.

  • Indesign CS4 will not launch in Windows Vista

    Indesign CS4 will not launch but all other CS4 programs will in Windows Vista, has been worked perfectly up until mid february, I have spent two weeks dealing with Adobe support, and finally I ran “Windows Installer Clean Up” and restarted as requested on phone call to adobe today, then ran “WinCS4Cleanupscript” which inform me that it was clean (or words to that effect) and restarted. Did new install of CS4, at registration I noticed that the Reg Form was pre filled and with my preferences which was a bit strange. After all that Indesign still does not launch but is running. Please can anyone help.

    This is the earlier thread http://forums.adobe.com/message/2621367#2621367
    I think the onus is on Rapport to sort its software to prevent it interfering with other applications, and there is a post in that thread that indicates that Rapport is both aware of the problem and is working to overcome it.
    I would hope that Adobe itself would have picked up this problem by at least monitoring this forum, but other than adding it to the knowledgebase for its technical support, which I don't expect is an overnight thing to do, I can't see what else it would be expected to do.
    Perhaps if anyone from Adobe is monitoring this problem they could chime in here and let us know what the position is. I strongly suspect that Trusteer may have been the reason I couldn't get InDesign to run under Windows 7, and so I rolled the whole shooting match back to XP. I am planning to reinstall W7 with the knowledge that I may have to toggle Trusteer on and off to run InDesign, but it would be helpful to have some assurance from either party that a fix is on its way.
    In the previous thread the Rapport response implied there was reference to the problem on its FAQ page. If there is I can't find it.

  • Bridge CS4 will not Launch

    Recently I tried to upgrade my Mac G4 Tower from OS 10.4 to OS 10.5 and it failed, even though I met all requirements. I had to reinstall 10.4 and now Bridge CS4 will not launch.  It worked fine before. I uninstalled PS CS4 and reinstalled it, I tossed prefs & cash files, I reset prefs but still no luck. Any suggestions before I strip down the whole HD and start from scratch?

    Any suggestions before I strip down the whole HD and start from scratch?
    My first go would be to buy a new HD and replace this with your current in
    the G4 and give a clean install of 10.5 to try if it will work.
    If you downgraded without a clean install from scratch you sure will end up
    with conflicting settings for applications.
    You could try to back up all custom settings, actions, tools etc and then
    deactivate the suite with erase serial number.
    Then find the clean tool for Adobe
    http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cs5clean.html
    and run this script, it says CS5 but to my knowledge it also finds files for
    the CS3 and CS4 suite. Do a search for any adobe files from user and system
    library and delete those also. Then install the CS4 suite again.
    But again to be honest, you are using a computer that in current digital
    terms dates from the 'stone age' and in now way can cope with the needs for
    the use of digital files nowadays. It might be wiser to try and find a used
    MacPro (or even a used iMac with intel processor) that will give you much
    more profit in speed, disk space and processing  instead of investing more
    time and money in new disks and install procedures...

  • Photoshop CS4 will not Start

    Hi, i'm usually quite responsible when it comes to making sure my system can coap with what i am asking of it, but i've ran into a problem that my computer just can't seem to get around, and means that photoshop cs4 will not start up.
    I've been making .PAT files from a few pattern sourcebooks i've recently brought. The first two went fine, but a japanese sourcebook contained 250 reasonably hi-res pattern images which i put through an automated action which set them all as patterns for me for the Pattern Overlay option in beldning options. When i did this i noticed my computer started to slow down near the end of the process, so i saved out the .PAT file from them, and quit photoshop to free up over 2.10GB worth of data. I have 4GB on a 32bit XP, but only 2 and a half-ish is seen by windows due to the hardware installed aswell. Of course i plan to chnage this to 64bit soon, but anyway, when photoshop now is told to start up, it reads everything normally, then gets to "Reading Preferences", and crashes with an error report, which watching my task manager, i belive to be linked to memory shortage from having to load the patterns up.
    I reset my preferences to see if it would set them all back to default and not read the added pattern files, but that made no difference. Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance!!

    I'd look into doing a couple of tests:
    1.) Move those PAT files elsewhere
    2.) Eliminate all programs and Processes, that are unnecessary. Task Manager>Processes will give you a list of all that load, and you can probably stop half of them with no ill effects. I'd use MSCONFIG, so you can go back and easily activate them later.
    3.) Reboot and see what happens.
    Note: John's suggestion on the Presets folder might address #1, but I'd also physically Move them. It sounds like you're running totally out of resources to run PS, so Textures, and such, might be an issue too.
    A question: how are your Scratch Disks setup and please tell us about your I/O sub-system, i.e. the internal HDD's, their size, free space, speed, controller type and how these internal HDD's are allocated. Especially tell us if you have any physical HDD's partitioned.
    Good luck,

  • Photoshop CS4 will not refresh or update view

    Hello,
    My Photoshop CS4 will not update / refresh the viewport after any change to the layers or settings. The view will only refresh if the view is changed, such as the hand or zoom tool. This makes Photoshop nearly usesless. Did some looking around the net and have seen a few responses to situations similar to this but none of them are regarding a Mac. This is my work computer so you can understand my frustration.

  • Photoshop CS4 will not open after system upgrade to Mac OSX Yosemite

    I recently upgraded to Mac OSX Yosemite and unfortunately, my Photoshop CS4 will not open. The message says it requires Java SE6. I now have Java 7 update 71. I would appreciate suggestions from anyone who can help to resolve this problem. Thank you.

    Thank you very much, Chris Cox. I followed the link in the error message to Apple's support page, downloaded and installed the Java for Mac OSX.
    I can now open my PS CS4 again. What a relief!
    Many thanks for your fast response and accurate advice.
    Cheers!

  • Photoshop CS5 will not launch

    Photoshop CS5 will not launch either from the desktop or program list. The only way to launch is to log out and restart the computer. At the end of each session I reset the preferences in the Workspace.  I am running Win 7 ultimate with 4GB of ram. System is 64 bit .  Display is ATI Radeon HD  5700 series. Adapter type is AMD Radeon Graphics Processor (0x68B8). The computer has an Intel(R) series/3400 Chipset Family.
    When I installed from the disk I received the message  Exit Code 6, 0 fatal errors, 21 errors, 1 warning. I have reinstalled several times and still get the same message. Tried disabling start up items while installing but same message.

    One thing that sort of jumps out at me, regarding running the program, is that 4GB of RAM. With a 64-bit OS, 4GB is just about the minimum to run the OS, with little to nothing left over for a program, like Photoshop. I would bump that up, and to 12 - 16GB, if possible.
    For the installation, I think that Mylenimum has posted some very useful links.
    Good luck,

  • Photoshop CC will not launch after deleting and re-installing Lightroom

    Yesterday, I contacted Adobe support because I could not get my Lightroom trial version to convert to my CC subsciption. I was told to delete the Lightroom app by dragging it to the trash and re-installing. I did this, and it fixed my problem with Lightroom, but now my Photoshop CC will not launch. I am on Mac OS Mountain Lion. I have tried launching from the dock and from the finder both.

    Reinstall the original 5.2 and forget the CC version for now. It's exactly the same piece of software. What you did get was a second license, useful if you have more than two machines, but completely redundant if you haven't.
    The situation is different when Lr 6 comes out. You'll get that as part of CC and don't need to purchase the upgrade. So at that point you can just install CC and leave 5.x where it is.
