After upgrading to Windows 7, the Editior function on my Photoshop Elements 6 program stopped working. I have tried the following: Run as Administrator. No success. Compatibility Troubleshoot. No success. Reinstalling. No Success. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Please try the below solutions-


    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.


    2: In case any network printer is attached try to launch without network or printer uninstall or make different printer as default.


    3: Try launching with anti-virus off or removing PSE from conflicting list.


    4.  Try launching directly from the exe of editor and organizer and see if it gets launches-

    Editor - c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe

    I would like you to do a clean reinstall and then check. Follow the below steps to do a clean reinstall


    1. Do a normal uninstallation from the control panel.

    2. Go to C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\11.0 and delete everything there

    3. Go to "C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Local\Adobe\TypeSupport" and delete everything there.

    4. Go to "C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\11.0" and delete everything there.

    5  Install PSE again.

    6. Launch it after a restart of system.
