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.

Any idea??

    May be the preference file got corrupted.


    Please try couple of probable solutions as mentioned below:


    Solution 1:

    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.


    Solution 4:


    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.
