Since I installed Photoshop CS6 I am no longer able to launch Photoshop from the properties bar in Dreamweaver.
This problem started when I installed Photoshop CS6, I was originally using Dreamwever CS5.5. I upgraded Dreamweaver to CS6 but it did not correct the problem.
Aditional information: When in Dreamweaver, if I select an image on a web page the icon in the properties window shows the PS icon but when I click on it I get the following error message:
Maybe this belongs in the Dreamweaver section but since the problem only started after installing Photoshop CS6 I thought this would be the appropriate place for it.
I am a Web Designer so this is a real inconvenience to me, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since problems all started after you installed Photoshop PS6 and problem followed Dreamweaver CS5.5 to DW CS6., wonder if for some reason only the 32-bit Photoshop PS6 might have been installed or that there may be some other PSCS6 installation problem. Have you confirmed that the 64-bit Photoshop PS6 is installed?
I am running on win 7 with Dreamweaver 5 and have PSCS6 installed. However when I click on the edit PS icon in Dreamweaver it opens PS CS5.
FWIW, my Dreamweaver 5 will open the image in whatever version of Photoshop I have active, CS6, CS5, and even CS4 (which I never uninstalled). It will launch PS CS5 if no Photoshop is active. Do you still have Photoshop CS5 installed? (I'm running DW CS5. None of this may be too useful if something changed in DW 5.5).
I uninstalled Photoshop CS5 before installing CS6, I am going to try and re-install CS6 and see if it makes any difference.
If that doesn't work I will probably end up re-installing CS5.
This feature worked on Dreamweaver CS5.5 before installing Photoshop CS6.
OK, I re-installed Photoshop CS6 only this time I enabled installing the 32 bit version (which I don't know when I would need it) and the problem is still there with one exception...
If I change the external editor in Dreamweaver from the 64 bit to the 32 bit version of Photoshop CS6 it works.
It refuses to launch the 64 bit version of Photoshop.
It is a work around, I just feel like is is a waste of approximately 500MB of precious HD space on my SSD.
Thanks for all of the comments asn suggestions from all.
500MB of precious HD space on my SSD
If you want to invest more in your computer, something to consider... Most modern systems can support a RAID0 array made from SSDs, and you get both more space and more performance. You could consider getting another one or several SSDs and building an array, then expanding your system volume to fill the space. I run a RAID0 SSD array myself for drive C: that totals 2 TB (1 TB free right now). With that kind of space on tap and 1.7 GB/sec throughput there's no more worry about what's installed and what isn't, where to put files, where to point scratch drives... Everything just screams.
Just a thought.
