Hi people, I use PSE to create textures and other things to work with 3D and after install Win8Pro PSE always crash to desktop. Theres no way to work with it for a long time (more then 10 ou 15 minutes).
So I decided to download the trial for the 11 version, but it crash the same way...
Its a 64bit system using a 32 bit PSE. Its a fresh install since the upgrade from win7 didnt work very well for a lot of my other apps.
May be the preference file got corrupted.
Please try couple of probable solutions as mentioned below:
1. Close Elements.
2. Launch the Photoshop Elements Welcome Screen and hold down ctrl + alt + shift as you click Editor.
3. Continue to hold the keys until you see a message box asking if you want to delete Photoshop Elements settings file; click Yes. Elements will open with default preferences.
Solution 2: In case any network printer is attached try to launch without network or printer uninstall or make different printer as default.
Solution 3: Try launching with anti-virus off or removing PSE from conflicting list.
On the drive on which you have installed PSE,on my machine it is on C:
Go to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\Locales\<locale>\Plug-Ins\Import-Exportand you will find twain plug-in. Remove that plug-in from that location and copy it somewhere else.
Now launch PSE and check if it works.
No way to fix that. After sometime I saw that others softwares have some trouble in Win8 Pro 64 bits, so I decided to reinstall it. After that almost all others work fine, but PSE 8 and 6 still crash after sometime working. Looks that isnt compatible with Win8 so I had to buy Corel Paint Shop Pro to work, its a little slow but theres a lot fo tools that PSE dont have, dont think that Adobe will look at older versions of PSE for compatibilitie...
