    Are you using OS X? If yes, there should be nothing in folder "/Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS6/Plug-ins/" until you install optional or third party plug-ins which have been declared by the provider as being compatible with Ps CS6. The plug-ins supplied with Ps CS6 are stashed inside the .app and the user should not add or remove anything in there.

    Remove the CS5 plug-ins from CS6.

     

    As you've found, doing that's a really bad idea. The new plug-in architecture for CS6 is designed to have only 3rd party (non-Adobe) plug-ins in the Plug-ins folder. All of the Adobe supplied plug-ins for CS6 are already installed. The best practice for migrating plug-ins is to get the most recent updates from the vender and run the installer to make sure all the 3rd party plug-ins are correctly installed.

    That would be any other plug-ins you've installed after Photoshop.  Out of the box that folder is completely empty with Photoshop CS6.

     

    To be completely accurate, what you did wrong was that you copied plug-ins that were supplied by Adobe with the earlier version of Photoshop.  Those plug-ins logically conflict with the current ones Adobe supplies with Photoshop, which are now provided in another place.

     

    They've changed the folder structure, so no longer are any plug-ins supplied by Adobe put in that folder.  Hopefully for a future version update you can copy those you have in Photoshop CS6 without getting yourself into the same trouble.
