Error 6 in Photoshop Elements

Jan 1, 2013 11:15 AM



I've had Photoshop Elements for a little over a year now, but it has suddenly stopped working. I get the message that it is an 'error 6'. Here's the message I get:


Please uninstall and reinstall the product.

If this problem still occurs, please contact Adobe technical support for help, and mention the the error code shown at the bottom of the screen.

Error: 6


I got the program with my PC, and when I googled it I read that 'error 6' was a message that the license had gone out, or that the copy was likely pirated. I've tried the licensing program, but it did unfortunately not work. Neither is it pirated, as I got it from the retail store.


Is there anything I can do to fix it?
