Unable to open Bridge CS5

Nov 28, 2012 9:45 AM

My iMac hard drive crashed.  I installed a new one and re-installed Photoshop CS5.  I am using OS X 10.8.2

 

Photoshop searched for and found updates and they were all successfully installed.  However, I am unable to open Bridge.  The mini-bridge function gets hung up on "waiting for bridge".  If I attempt to open Bridge from its own icon, it starts the process and then immediately closes.

    How did you install files?  Backup, disk, download?

     

    Might try to reset preferences.  Start Bridge and hold down Option key.  In reset window choose all 3 options.

    I tried the option key... no luck

     

     

    First make sure you have the latest update for Bridge, in PS go to the menu help and choose check for updates.

     

    Also use Apple Disk Utility to check and repair permissions for your system.

    Here is what I now get:

     

     

    There is nothing showing in your post?

    If you want to add a screenshot to the forum you should use the Forum site itself, adding attachments via email do not get send through

    Strange, can you report back the exact version numbers of PS and Bridge. (sorry, misread the update mentioned in first post)

     

    If you change the finder window to column mode and select the icon it will show the info in a column next to the bridge icon.

     

    Can you also provide details about your computer set up (type of iMac, amount of RAM, free space left on the Disk and Graphic card with amount of VRAM)?

     

    You can check this all under the Apple icon top left 'About this Mac'

     

     

    Does PS work normal on your system and do you have it activated as a full version and not in trial mode?

     

     

    Did you try to uninstall PS and reinstall again to see if this would work?
