Everytime I open my CS6, it always show " Could not initialize Photoshop because the preferences file was invalid (it has been deleted)" I reinstalled it but it is still popping out. Please help me coz I badly need my Photoshop
If you're on Windows, then navigate to the location: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 and then trash/delete the Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 Settings folder. Looking at the error I've a feeling that you don't have sufficient privileges to that folder. Right click on Roaming\Adobe folder and then choose Properties\Security tab. Select your username and apply full control to it.
yeah, I reinstalled and it didn't fix. I found a video http://tv.adobe.com/watch/the-complete-picture-with-julieanne-kost/how -to-reset-photoshop-cs6s-preferences-file/ that explains how to locate the file and delete it.
I'm having the same issue when I open my cs3. I've tried the ctrl+alt+shift solution but it didnt work. Also I cannot find the adobe folder in my AppData. I'm on windows 8 Anyone knows how to fix this?
Just a wild guess, but perhaps if you check Photoshop on the win 8 front page, and choose Run as Adminstrator from the options bar at the bottom of the page, and then do the Ctrl Alt Shift thing? I can't test it at the moment because my Application Manager is updating on my Win8 laptop
Thanks for the feedback because I've learned something as well. In fact I am quite new to Win8 and definitely haven't fully got to grips with it, and since I made that last post my Application Manager update failed, and the run as adminstrator trick worked for me as well. I can't say as my limited experience with win8 has been a totally happy one to date, but perhaps the 8.1 update will make life easier for us win7 Luddites
