I'm pretty new to this kind of site and forum and in desperate need of help...
I edit images in Photoshop CS3, until last night every function performed beautifully... Here is my problem, step by step:
I launch Photoshop CS3 successfully
I click "File"
I then click "Open"
The open windows pops up for a sec but then immediately closes! I don't even have time to see my files in the window, and of course to select anything!)
The Photoshop CS3 title bar then "mutes" and I can't make it active again
and just have to shut down Photoshop and restart it again.
The weird thing is that the other commands (New, Browse, etc.) work properly!
I'm a graphist designer and I'm used to work with Photoshop a lot, so this is a very serious issue for me. If there's anyone out there who can keep me from becoming really crazy with this issue, I would really appreciate.
Hi, Im new to this help and advise site. I bought "CS3 Creative Suite-Standard Edition". I started to get error message with CS3, For a whole week I phone Adobe technical support dept and tried to get help, but all in vein, no email address for support either. I deactivated the programs 1st and than I uninstall it from control panel. I still could not re-installed CS3. there was no setup exe file. Last way out, I format my hard drive, install XP.
This time I manage to install CS3. Only problem is I cannot open "Photoshop program". The error message is as follow:
"The specified module could not be found. C/program files/commonfiles/Adobe Version Cue CS3/Client?3.0,0/VersionCueUI.DLL" After pressing enter the followwing errror message comes up:
The instruction at "0x5ad71531" referenced memory at "0x00000014". The memory could not be "read, click on "OK" to terminate the program.
Im busy with my graphic design course and I really, really need to have my CS3 up and running.
Please, THIS is my only help.
Your help and advised will be appreciated. thank you inadvanced.
I called tech support and the solution to this problem is related to version cue. Make sure you have version cue unchecked in your photoshop options wherever it is--i cannot remember. And uncheck version cue in the startup scripts in the Bridge options.
The version cue option was under preferences > file handling.
Same here, I have just installed the adobe creative suite 3 master collection, and am not able to choose photoshop Cs3 extended, as the default program, nor does it allow me to open the files from abode bridge or use photoshop to edit from dreamweaver...does anyone have any advice? and by the way I am running off of Vista Home edition...
Hello, I am a graphic designer..and like everyone else. having problems with photoshop CS3.
It started randomly a few weeks ago or so, and I cant find out the problem, id open photoshop, go to open a new file.click on the file, and as soon as it is suppose to open a command error box comes up saying that no photoshop files can be opend because there is to many files open at once.
but theres none at all.
After this box is closed..i cannot close photoshop...x out ur even CTRL ALT DEL out..i litrally have to restart the whole pc
its becoming a very serious issue as I need it for my work and do not expect to have to sit and spend the time creating a new account or reloading the software all over again when I havent had it that long.
this is a fault that needs to be fixed from design softwares.
there valuable..and important..and luckily I have not lost work from it.
although this is affecting my buisness and am finding it difficult or impossible to work from home at all.
I can think to several solutions to solve your Photoshop problem.
First, how did you set up your scratch disk? Did you put it on a separate drive than the one of the windows scratch disk? You'd need two different physical drives to do this, so if you only have one, then don't worry about it.
Also, how many fonts do you have loaded into windows? This might impacts Photshop too.
You can try trashing your preferences first (hold down ctrl, alt and shift when you start Photoshop) and see if that helps.
Did anyone try contacting Adobe....Or Microsoft? I know it can be painful trying to contact a large company....I just bought Photoshop cs3 last week and have no problems. I hope I dont run into this type problem.. I wish you all the best. Mike/ezdate123
I have the EXACT same problem on my laptop. I have CS3 installed on my desktop (that was a pain - took a lot of screwing around to get it to work) - I then installed it on my laptop and still can't get it to work. The first error was something about licensing - I found a solution - now I can't open files - I am getting the same error as you. I will be calling ADOBE tomorrow. If anyone has a solution, please post
I had the same issue - per adobe it has to do with the dialouge opening in a place where it was previous -- this would be unavalable under certain conditions as it is restoring it to the previous - now unavailable - location. Mine was missing cause I had swapped the window to screen 2 in my setup - then returned it -- it can also happen if you change reolutins and the window is opening out of screen --- up the res and find the window and return it
- When I Open an image in Adobe Photoshop CS3, the Open box opens and when I select an Image and click the Open button, an error comes out and says that it could not open because one or more files were selected for opening at once. So I've clicked OK and my photoshop just locks up! I mean I couldn't press any buttons in Photoshop even the Maximize, Minimize, and Close button.
- When I Save, I also get the same problem from above ^!
when you have several adobe softwares installed, most of them share the same components. most Components are left behind in the directory even if you uninstall the software that's why when you decide to reinstall the same software, in doesn't really overwrites the existing component and skips it during installation resulting to other components not being installed and skipped.(ex. VersionCue.dll, VersionCueUI.dll etc.)
the solution :
before installing (say, Photoshop CS3) check if you still have a folder named "Adobe" in your C: directory.
if you have one, then you should rename it temporarily with a new name.
- install the new adobe software.
- after installation, copy the new files from the new Adobe directory generated by the installation to the old Adobe folder you just renamed.overwrite any old files there.
-rename it back to Adobe
