Has anyone run into this?
The only place I've had the problem is when trying to edit an album. After it stops working, elements 11 just shuts down.
Operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate.
Yes, it does happen in all the albums in my catalog. I even tried another catalog and it had the same problem. It is not a converted catalog. I started it right with PSE 11. Based on another thread in the forum I even tried to "repair" and "optimize" the catalog and it came back and said everything was good.
I just installed a trial version of PSE 11 on another computer and copied my catalog over to replicate the problem, everything worked ok, so I'm suspecting I have something conflicting with PSE that causes the problem on the original computer. I'm going to try uninstalling "potential" problem programs that are infrequently used to see if that fixes it unless someone out there knows how to identify conflicts in program crashes.
This problem was just resolved with a lot of testing - it ended up being a program called RoboForm (password remembering program in the Task Bar) was stepping on PSE Organizer. I turned off RoboForm and everything worked, turned it back on and Organizer failed on the the Album / Edit. I did this at least a dozen times and the results every time were predictable - Organizer failed when RoboForm was on and Organizer worked when RoboForm was off.
Great.. you figured that out
Just a thought, if you want to continue using Roboform as well as PSE and the two conflict.. you can Add PSE to Roboform's blacklist. That should stop the interaction between the two.
Steps to do so-
If PSE is running, close it now.
In Roboform 7, go to Options / Applications Integration.
Select Add to the Black List (the list of applications RoboForm will not attach to).
Browse to the location of the PSE executable <Organizer in your case, possibly Editor too>
Thanks for this tip - it worked !!! That will save a lot of trouble remembering to turn off RoboForm when performing an edit on an album. This was an option in RoboForm I'd never had to use and had totally forgotten about it.
Thanks again, Pete
