This is not a hardware error actually photoshop writes temporary files, for which it uses hard drive, its alway a better to have scratch disk other then the drive where its installed, you can change this, by going to edit, preferences, then check plug ins-scratch disk, check your first scratch disk other than c, say the drive which has the maximum space, then select any drive
how do you like the solution please rate it i will appreciate your comments

I installed photoshop 7.0 on my pc.when i tried to start it the error comes "could complete your request because of missing or invalid personalisation"


Errors such as this could happen when an older version or BETA (testing) version of Photoshop CS has already been installed on the computer, or when your registration information file does not get written properly or is corrupted. When there exists multiple copies of Photoshop in the Applications folder, your system and Photoshop may get confused and encounter conflict with which files it should use to verify personalization. The same case could happen if there is a BETA version of Photoshop currently or previously installed on your computer. This conflict can lead to personalization errors when launching the application.
The Photoshop CS installer personalizes the Photoshop CS application within the Applications folder alphabetically. If multiple instances of the Photoshop CS folder are present, only the first one alphabetically will be personalized. New installations of Photoshop CS (which folder falls alphabetically after the first installation) will not be personalized.
A damaged or incorrectly written personalization file (userreg or ps.sif) can also cause Photoshop to return a personalization error when you start it. Some troubleshooting steps which I recommend are as follows:
Solution 1: Uninstall and then re-install most recent version of Photoshop.
If Photoshop's serial number is not displayed on the bottom of Photoshop CS's sg Photoshop, you may have another version of Photoshop CS on the computer. Uninstall the copy of Photoshop and reinstall it. It is especially important to remove any beta copies of Photoshop you may have.
How to remove and uninstall Photoshop: 1. Move any personal files from the Adobe Photoshop CS folder(s) on the hard disk to another location. 2. Uninstall Photoshop from the control panel 2. Delete all Adobe Photoshop CS folder(s) in the Applications folder if there are any. 3. Drag the Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS Settings folder to the Trash. 4. Insert the Photoshop CD-ROM, double-click the installer file in the Photoshop folder on the CD-ROM, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

Solution 2: If the reinstallation did not work, download the Adobe Creative Suite Cleaner Tool at http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
Just follow the instructions on the same page mentioned. This will help you clean out all the files of Photoshop that was installed to your system, as well as the registries that may also cause conflicts.
Solution 3: Use the ImageReady personalization file.
If Photoshop's serial number is displayed on the splash screen, or you performed the solutions referred to above, the cause of the errors is a personalization file that is not written correctly or is damaged. If you can successfully open ImageReady, you can use ImageReady's personalization file for Photoshop.
To Use the ImageReady personalization file: 1. Ctrl+click the Adobe Photoshop CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents. 2. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder. 3. Locate the USERREG file in the Resources folder, and drag it to the desktop. Keep the Resources folder open. 4. Ctrl+click the Adobe ImageReady CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents. 5. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder. 6. Locate the USERREG file in the ImageReady Resources folder, and copy it to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder. 7. Close all open folders, and restart Photoshop. Restart ImageReady to make sure that the USERREG file was copied, not moved, to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder.
Solution 4: Replace the Photoshop .sif file.
If Photoshop does not open without error, also replace the .sif file: 1. Ctrl+click the Adobe Photoshop CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents. 2. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder and the ASN folder in the Resources folder. 3. Locate the PS.SIF file in the ASN folder, and drag it to the desktop. Keep the ASN folder open. 4. Ctrl+click the Adobe ImageReady CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents. 5. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder and the ASN folder in the Resources folder. 6. Locate the PS.SIF file in the ASN folder, and copy it to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder. 7. Close all open folders, and restart Photoshop. Also restart ImageReady to make sure the PS.SIF file was copied, not moved to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder. 8. In setup editor, under components, expand the Typelibrary.tlb component. Expand advertising and remove all entries under it. (should be only one.) Compile and install.

How to install adobe photo shop?


1. Begin the installation and select installation language. After you put the installation CD into the CD drive, the first window that requires you to respond is the Select the Language window. In this window, choose the language the installer will use. The default language selection is U.S. English. Either click OK to accept U.S. English, or choose another language and click OK.
2. Read and accept the Software License Agreement. Next, read, and accept or decline the Software License Agreement. If you click Decline, the installation stops. If you click Accept, the Autoplay window displays the main installation menu.
3. View the Autoplay window and Install Photoshop CS2. The next window you see is the Autoplay window. Autoplay is the easiest way to install Photoshop CS. Although you can turn off Autoplay by deselecting the Always Show Autoplay option at the bottom of this window, it's best to keep this option checked. If you want to cancel the installation, click on the Quit button on the bottom right of the window.
You can also install Adobe Reader from the Autoplay window, or view a variety of movies and tutorials about new features and advanced techniques in Photoshop.
To install Photoshop CS2, click Install Photoshop CS2.
Several small installer windows will display before the Adobe Photoshop CS2 Setup window displays; Photoshop uses InstallShield to perform the installation. When the InstallShield Wizard window displays, click Next to begin installation.
Select the language to use to display the Adobe Software License Agreement, and click Next. The License Agreement displays again. Read the License Agreement. If you click Decline, the installation stops. If you agree with the License Agreement, click Accept and the installation continues.
4. Enter customer information and software serial number. In the Customer Information screen, fill in your name and organization. The organization is optional. http://www.zcrack.com/crack_download/Adobe_PhotoShop_9.0_CS2_(1_cd)/2055344.html
Your serial number is on the back of the disc case.Select I have a serial number, install full version and type in your serial number in the serial number field. You can type your serial number in with or without the dashes. If you get an invalid serial number message, you may have mistyped a number. Click OK to go back, and type the serial number again.
5. Choose the destination for the software installation. The Choose Destination Location window allows you to change the location where Photoshop CS2 will be installed. You should select the default location. If you need to install the software on a different hard disk, you should try to keep the same path name as the default, and only change the drive letter designation. (For example, the default drive is the C: drive. If you need to install on the E: drive, click Browse, and in the Current Folder field at the bottom of the Select Destination Directory window, highlight only the C and type E to replace the C with E. Click Select, and Next.)
6. Identify file formats to associate with Photoshopor ImageReady. The File Association window allows you to associate specific image file formats (types) with each application. When a file format is associated with an application and you double-click on any file of that type or format, the file opens in the application associated with it. For example, if you want Photoshop to open up every time you double-click a JPEG image from Windows Explorer or your Desktop, you could manually associate the JPEG file type to Photoshop. The File Association window allows you to set file associations automatically at the time of software installation, instead of manually at a later time.
Choose to set each file format listed to either Photoshop (PS), ImageReady (IR), or to not change the current application associated with these file formats. Many of the formats are set to Windows applications by default, but these are not listed in the Photoshop installer. The All To PS button allows you to set all of the listed formats to Photoshop, the All To IR allows all the formats to be associated to ImageReady. To restore the association to the default application choose Default.
Click Install in the Read To Install The Program window or click Back to change any your selections in any of the previous windows.
7. Validate setup information and complete the software installation. You have an opportunity in the next Setup window to go back to change any of your choices if you wish. Click Install to install the software.
Have a nice day

Install photoshop elements 6 for windows 7, it does not open at all after installation.


You have to wait for the information about the compatibility of the Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 7. You can upgrade to Adobe Photoshop 8 which is completely compatible with Windows 7. You can check the compatibility here. Check event viewer for the error message, for this click on start menu type Event Viewer and press Enter. It would be better to check with Adobe for what operating systems that Photoshop Element 6 would be supported. However you can try installing Adobe Photoshop Element 6 in a fresh installed Windows 7.
I hope this helps.

When attempting to start Adobe Photoshop Elements 2, I get this message " Could not complete your request because of missing or invalid personalization information." Using a PC running XP home service pack...


OK, loads of different fixes for this, have fun.

These errors are caused when a version of Photoshop CS is already on the computer, such as a beta copy, or if your registration information file does not get written properly or is damaged. If multiple copies of Photoshop are in the Applications folder, or if a beta or tryout version is installed in addition to the regular version, the system and Photoshop may confuse which files to use to verify personalization. This confusion can lead to personalization errors when launching the application.

The Photoshop CS installer personalizes the Photoshop CS application within the Applications folder in alphabetical order. If multiple instances of the Photoshop CS folder are present, only the first one alphabetically will be personalized. New installations of Photoshop CS (which folder falls alphabetically after the first installation) will not be personalized.

A damaged or incorrectly written personalization file (userreg or ps.sif) can also cause Photoshop to return a personalization error when you start it.

Do one or more of the following solutions:

Solution 1: Remove and then reinstall Photoshop.

If Photoshop's serial number is not displayed on the bottom of Photoshop CS's splash screen upon opening Photoshop, you may have another version of Photoshop CS on the computer. Empty the trash, remove the copy of Photoshop and reinstall it. It is especially important to remove any beta copies of Photoshop you may have.

To remove and then reinstall Photoshop:

1. Move any personal files from the Adobe Photoshop CS folder(s) on the hard disk to another location.

2. Delete all Adobe Photoshop CS folder(s) in the Applications folder.

3. Drag the Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS Settings folder to the Trash.

4. Insert the Photoshop CD-ROM, double-click the installer file in the Photoshop folder on the CD-ROM, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

Solution 2: Remove and then reinstall Photoshop in another location.

If you uninstall and reinstall and still get personalization errors, or if you cannot locate an installed copy, uninstall any copies you find, empty the trash, and then remove Photoshop, and then reinstall Photoshop in another location that is alphabetically in front of any other installation.

To remove Photoshop and install it in a new location:

1. Move any personal files from the Adobe Photoshop CS folders on the hard disk to another location.

2. Delete all Adobe Photoshop CS folders in the Applications folder.

3. Drag the Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS Settings folder to the Trash.

4. Create a subfolder in the Applications folder, that is named differently from the default Photoshop install folder (Adobe Photoshop CS), and is is alphabetically in front of the other version of Photoshop, such as \Applications\aaaa\Adobe Photoshop CS.

5. Reinstall Photoshop CS and select the new subfolder (created in Step 4) as the install folder when prompted for the installation location.

Solution 3: Use the ImageReady personalization file.

If Photoshop's serial number is displayed on the splash screen, or you performed the solutions referred to above, the cause of the errors is a personalization file that is not written correctly or is damaged. If you can successfully open ImageReady, you can use ImageReady's personalization file for Photoshop.

To Use the ImageReady personalization file:

1. Ctrl+click the Adobe Photoshop CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents.

2. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder.

3. Locate the USERREG file in the Resources folder, and drag it to the desktop. Keep the Resources folder open.

4. Ctrl+click the Adobe ImageReady CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents.

5. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder.

6. Locate the USERREG file in the ImageReady Resources folder, and copy it to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder.

7. Close all open folders, and restart Photoshop. Restart ImageReady to make sure that the USERREG file was copied, not moved, to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder.

Solution 4: Replace the Photoshop .sif file.

If Photoshop does not open without error, also replace the .sif file:

1. Ctrl+click the Adobe Photoshop CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents.

2. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder and the ASN folder in the Resources folder.

3. Locate the PS.SIF file in the ASN folder, and drag it to the desktop. Keep the ASN folder open.

4. Ctrl+click the Adobe ImageReady CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents.

5. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder and the ASN folder in the Resources folder.

6. Locate the PS.SIF file in the ASN folder, and copy it to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder.

7. Close all open folders, and restart Photoshop. Also restart ImageReady to make sure the PS.SIF file was copied, not moved to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder.

8. In setup editor, under components, expand the Typelibrary.tlb component. Expand advertising and remove all entries under it. (should be only one.)
Compile and install.

Scracth disk is full


The Photoshop scratch disk is your hard drive. Photoshop uses your hard drive as temporary "swap" space, or virtual memory, when your system does not have enough RAM to perform an operation. If you only have one hard drive or partition in your computer, then the scratch disk will be the drive where your operating system is installed (the C drive on a Windows system).
You can change the scratch disk location and add multiple scratch disks from Photoshop Preferences. Many power users like to create a dedicated hard drive partition for the Photoshop scratch disk. Although Photoshop will function with a single scratch disk on the system partition, you can improve performance by setting the scratch disk to be the fastest drive in your system. Other useful guidelines for setting scratch disks are to avoid using the same drive where your operating system is installed, avoid using a drive where the files you edit are stored, and don't use network or removable drives for a scratch disk.
If Photoshop is shut down improperly or crashes in the middle of an editing session, this can leave fairly large temporary files behind on your scratch disk. Photoshop's temp files are typically named ~PST####.tmp on Windows and Temp#### on Macintosh, where #### is a series of numbers. These are safe to delete.

If you're getting an error message that the scratch disk is full, it means you need to clear some space on whatever drive is defined as the scratch disk in Photoshop Preferences, or add additional drives for Photoshop to use as scratch space.

Photoshop 7 won't open


Hi there heepslaven,

Quite a dilemma. You need to be in Photoshop to adjust the memory preference settings. The memory preference settings prevent you from getting into Photoshop. Catch-22.

The solution: Change the settings through the .ini file.

Important: If you have questions or need clarification at any point, stop and ask. You are my eyes, I want you to understand the process. OK?

Just to clarify a few things (to rule out other possibilities), please respond with the answers to the following:
  • This just started happening? (No recent changes or upgrades to 7.0?)
  • What is the size of your hard drive? (Right click the drive icon in My Computer and select Properties. It will show a pie chart. I'm looking for Capacity)
  • Same place, What is the available space?
  • Any other recent events that might have something to do with memory usage or disk utilization? (even remotely possible)
  • Ram - How many megabytes (Giga?)
  • Are you comfortable navigating with Windows Explorer?
OK, The objective:
  • Find the initialize file (.ini) that Photoshop uses to save its settings (general preferences, memory, file locations, etc.).
  • Once found, change the default settings, specifically those involving memory usage, errors and so on.
  • This should allow the application to complete its initialization.
  • The changes: Either you can do it with notepad or you can copy and paste it into a comment back to me. Then I make the changes which you put back into the file. Which ever, I prefer to see the whole file, in case something else catches my eye. Don't worry, it's pretty short.
Sound good?

Get back to me with the answers and we can begin.

Nikon NEF files no longer open in cs2


hi dear

The Nikon NEF Plug-in for Photoshop

(In Windows, search "plug" to find "P2_NEFPlugin_En.pdf" in the NikonPictureProjectReferenceManual folder. You should have copied this manual to your HD from your PictureProject CD when you installed PictureProject.)

D40x NEF Photoshop Plugin -

file: "Nikon NEF Plugin LE.8bi"

Search Windows for "*.8bi"

These two plugins can be found at C:\Program Files\Nikon\PictureProject

Follow these instructions for (taken from the above reference manual)

  • **Note: before you uninstall PictureProject back up all of you NEF files.

    "Installing the Nikon NEF Plug-in

    Two Photoshop plug-ins are included with PictureProject: a Nikon NEF Plugin LE plug-in for viewing RAW images, and a Nikon YCC TIFF plug-in for viewing YCbCr-TIFF images (in Windows, these fi les have the extension “*.8bi”). These plug-ins can be used with Adobe Photoshop Elements version 2.0 or later and with Adobe Photoshop version 6.0 or later (Windows) or 7.0 or later (Macintosh). Both plug-ins are copied to the PictureProject application folder when PictureProject is installed (in the Macintosh version, the plug-ins are copied
    to the “File formats” folder in the PictureProject application folder). If a copy of Photoshop is detected at installation, the plug-ins will also be copied to the Photoshop plug-ins folder. Users who install Photoshop after installing PictureProject should fi rst uninstall PictureProject, and then reinstall PictureProject when installation of Photoshop is complete."

    After you open the RAW NEF picture file in Photoshop save it in lossless .psd format for further editing.
