Extension no longer shows in Photoshop after updating to Photoshop 13.0.1

Sep 10, 2012 10:11 AM

I develop a commercial plugin for Photoshop, last weekend I had a few clients update their Photoshop CS6 (Mac) to 13.0.1.  Once they did this, the plugin is no longer is listed in the Window > Extension list.


I then updated my Photoshop CS6 to 13.0.1, and tried to debug using Creative Suite Extension Builder 2.0.  The extension never shows up and I cannot open it.


Please advise.

    Hi Nate,


    What version range does your CS Extension manifest show? If it has a range:


      <host Name="PHSP" Version="[13.0,13.0]" />



    try changing this to:


      <host Name="PHSP" Version="13.0" />



    This will ensure that your extension supports a minimum of version 13.0


    Kind regards,

    Hi Nate,


    I suspect that the HostList entry in the extension manifest is limiting the upper bound of the Photoshop version. Can you try editing your manifest like below?


     <Host Name="PHXS" Version="[13.0,13.9]" />
     <Host Name="PHSP" Version="[13.0,13.9]" />


    Hope that helps,
