Yesterday, when i opened my Photoshop Elements 7 (I use it on my PC from 3 years), after the splash screen, an alert windows says to me that there is an error and suggested to restart PC or reinstall product. The program automatically closed itself.
I'm not able to write the exact sentence of the alert, because now PE7 does not start at all. Not even the alert with the error message.
I always used this product in this 3 years (from this PC), without problems.
PE7 was preinstalled and pre-registered by the constructor of PC (Sony-Vaio). So, now i have not even the registration key to reinstall PE7.
Furthermore, I tried to open Adobe Premiere Elements 7 (also, preinstalled and pre-registered, but never used), and after splash screen the program automatically close itself.
What can I do??!?
Thanks you all.
No third party plugin on my Photoshop Elements.
A Printer, maybe... The only new printer installed is a network, for wich the driver was already installed (this printer was already used with usb cable in last 2 years). The printer was installed with the Windows procedure: "New Printer"->"Add Network Printer"->Insert Printer name/url (and the procedure closed succesfully).
But I am almost sure that I used PE7 also after this printer installation. Not sure 100%, but almost sure.
P.S.: more precisely the OS is Windows 7 Home Premium.
No result by disconnecting from the network. Even if I restart PC.
But.... I SOLVED the problem!!!!!
The problem was "FLEXnet Licensing Service"
Thanks to last tip, that leads to another failure... I remembered that 2 days ago I tried to optimize my PC by stopping some service with MSConfig. One of the disabled services was "FLEXnet Licensing Service".
Searching in google, now i know that "Flexnet Licensing service is used by most Adobe products to prevent piracy".
So, some Adobe products do not start, if Flexnet Licensing service is not running.
Thank you very much for tips, and help in general... very helpful (to investigate the nature of the problem).
