Delete or rename the Photoshop preferences file. This file is typically found on your hard drive at:

Users/ [user profile]/ Library/ Preferences/ Adobe Photoshop CS2 Settings/Adobe Photoshop CS2 Prefs.psp

(if you are using a different version, e.g. CS3, change the path appropriately).

    You may have a virus that has corrupted files on your computer, or you may have security software that is preventing you from changing or deleting this file. When you solve the problem that is keeping you from changing or deleting this file, and delete it, Photoshop will work again.

Photoshop CS3 Freeze Fix


This article is a how-to on how to fix an Adobe Photoshop freeze at start-up. It involves resetting or deleting the Photoshop preferences file.

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=kb401600&sliceId=1

To re-create the preferences files for Photoshop, start the application while holding down Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS). Then, click Yes to the message, "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file?"

This is a quick and easy fix that Adobe claims will sometimes fix erratic or strange behavior such as freezes. Until next time, happy Photoshoping!

Adobe photoshop 7.0 unexpected and unrecoverable error


I had a similar experience a while back. Photoshop worked fine for a couple years and then suddenly the same error appeared. Apparently I had purchased a "trial" software cd. Have you checked on adobe.com with your registration number to see if it's a good, clean, unregistered, etc copy?

Referenced memory error in photoshop elements 6


Was it the preferences file that you deleted? The description you gave to your problem sounds like your running a windows machine instead of Mac so i'll give you keys for PC. While program is launching hold down the following keys "Control+Shift+Alt" then when there is a screen that asks to delete the prefs files select "yes".

Trouble Launching


Hello,

Did you receive this software with a camera or printer as freeware? That version is probably not compatible with your version of the Mac Operating System or the CPU you are using, one of the two. In your basic menu you may have a program called Boot Camp. This emulates Windows. If you can launch that you may be able to install your program from there, just point to the Windows version of photoelements.

Version 2.0 is discontinued and there is no support or patches for it available at Adobe. See the Adobe Notice at the end of my relpy to you. This installer version you have cannot be fixed unfortunately since patches are not available.

You can download a trial version of 6.0 that retails for 89.99 should you decide to keep it. The web page is located here. http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopelmac/

"Adobe Photoshop Album 2.0 was discontinued on June 30, 2006.
Note: Although this product has been discontinued, it remains protected under copyright laws and the End User License Agreement.
We recommend Adobe Photoshop Elements as an alternative to Photoshop Album 2.0. For product information on Photoshop Elements, see the Adobe website"

Photoshop 7.0


Unfortunately the "official" word is out. Photoshop 7.0, 7.0.1 is not compatible with Apple's newest Operating System, Leopard (10.5).
Adobe Photoshop versions CS (8.0) CS2 (9.0) and CS3 (10.0) do run in Leopard but may have some issues. The only suggestion I have for you is either revert back to Tiger (10,4) or upgrade your Photoshop to CS3. Adobe offers a discounted upgrade price from 7.0, CS1, CS2 to CS3 for $199. That's a lot better then paying the full retail price of $649.00. I wish I had a better suggested solution for you. You're not alone on this one.
