I installed successfully Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 with Premiere Elements 11.
I can start Adobe Photoshop Organizer but if I start Photoshop Elements 11, I get two message...
Profile monitor seems to be corrupt, please re-calibrate with software the monitor.
Ok, it says:
Could not initialize photoshop because of a problem using the adobe color engine (Win 7)
I've made some search over Google and it seems that people with multiples monitor have this problem. I also use Lightroom 4 and it works very good.
Anyone can help please?
Processor i7-3820 @ 3.6ghz
Motherboard: Asus P9X79 Pro
Ati HD7850 video card (Catalyst 12.10)
2 x HD6450 video cards
I personally use multiple monitors, so it is not simply an issue of how many monitors you use.
What are you using to calibrate your screen? Do you have the latest version of the software installed? Have you calibrated your monitor recently? Have you tried simply disabling you calibration software to see if this helps? What about setting your monitor profile to a system default (like sRGB or Adobe RGB)?
Thanks for replying.
I dont have any calibrated software installed. My monitors has never been configured, so i dont have any profile either.
Oh, only to let you know, I was using Photoshop Elements 8 before the new 11 version. And it was working very good.
Waiting for a reply
It seems you have a profile, whether it was one you created or not. Check your display settings to determine what you are using and to change it to a different one. Here's a good place to get started with adjusting Windows 7 color management: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Change-color-management-se ttings
I did more tests here.
The only way I was possible to make work Elements 11 is by disconnecting 5 monitors and have only 2 working. More than 2 monitors, it fails.
It must have any fix for that issue.... How to contact tech support directly? It's kind of hard to get to them directly.
I don't have a way of testing five monitors at once, I'll have to have our engineers look into that. How many video cards are you using to have a five monitor setup? Are you opening PSE on the primary monitor? Are all five monitors calibrated separately? What color management hardware/software are you using for your calibration?
Hi Mr. Brett,
I reinstalled my PC with a format of my W7 x64. And also reinstalled the software on the new fresh OS and it was working very good. Now that I add more monitors, I get the error again. As soon as I play with video cards or the setup of monitors it gave me the error and cant open again until I reformat the PC.
Any clue ?
Hi Mr. Brett, sorry to not having respond to your questions.
Here they are below:

Since December, (when I start this request) I have changed those ATI (3x video cards) for 3x Nvidia video cards and did at the same time format my PC and it was working good. Recently, I changed a monitor and now I get back the same issue as before re-installing PC.
Are you opening PSE on the primary monitor?
Are all five monitors calibrated separately?
I haven't calibrate any monitors.
What color management hardware/software are you using for your calibration?
I dont have any hardware/software to calibrate monitors.
We generally don't recommend using mulitple video cards unless they are identical cards and have been CrossFired/SLI'ed together. We could be encountering some driver conflicts with the way things are set up.
Hi Mr. Brett,
They all use the same drivers for all those 3 cards.
It seems that I'm not the only one with this issue (color engine problems)... a whole page of results on Google Search website:
https://www.google.ca/search?q=Could+not+initialize+photoshop+because+ of+a+problem+using+the+adobe+color+engine&rlz=1C1ASUT_enCA492&aq=f&oq= Could+not+initialize+photoshop+because+of+a+problem+using+the+adobe+co lor+engine&aqs=chrome.0.57j60l3.279&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
The only way I'll be able to make this back work again is to format the PC and not touching anymore any monitors.
Yes, and it seems these are also all folks encountering the issue due to using a high number of monitors.
As for the possiblity of a driver conflict, I wasn't talking about different cards using different drivers, I meant that the drivers may not support so many monitors with the same API's that Photoshop uses for color management, or something along those lines.
It looks like the first two results in the search you provided would be good ones to follow. In each Chris Cox is on the case and investigating.
