HandleWindowFont not located

Nov 15, 2012 7:52 PM

was not able to get satisfaction from chatting with an adobe rep. PSE 11, installed yesterday, getting error box, "handlewindowfont could not be located in the dynamic link library plugin.dll". clicking on it many times, the program load. whether it tries to load thru organizer or editor, same result. chat person suggested to set up another administrator and load it thru there, same problem. What gives?

    The program is unable to display a font, possibly something to do with the UI or your Windows theme. As a minor, make sure you run with sufficient user privileges. also sift through your fonts and remove any third-party fonts that you may have added. also reset the theme to the default settings.

    Do you have multiple (different) versions of plugin.dll on your system?  What are their versions?


    If there are indeed different versions, PSE may try to invoke the wrong dll.

    I got the same problem. It was immediately solved when I unchecked the following:


    Edit > Preferences > Plug-Ins > Additional Plug-Ins Folder


    Instead of referring to plug-ins in the Photoshop Elements 10 folder I simply copied the plug-ins to the PSE11 plug-ins folder!
