Using CS6 32Bit Plug in Doesn't Work?

Jan 19, 2013 10:39 AM

Plug in filter works only in 32 bit and when I open an image and click on the filter I get an error message - Memory Access Violation.  Can't get any farther.

 

What do I do?

 

If giving an explanation please assume I know nothing!

    What OS version?

     

    Have you installed all the Photoshop updates?

     

    What plugin?

     

    Most likely there is just a bug in the plugin.

    (Assuming you have room) you can have both versions of Photoshop installed on your system at the same time.  They keep separate from one another.

     

    If an older plug-in is incompatble with the latest Photoshop, have you investigated getting a newer copy of the plug-in that IS compatible?

    I'd leave it at defaults to start with.  Why do you ask about RAM?  Are you seeing problems where you're led to believe there's a RAM shortage for some part of the operation?

    It's likely not a lack of RAM that's causing the problem, but a bug in the plug-in's implementation that's been uncovered by changes to Photoshop.  Plug-ins that closely (and correctly) follow the Photoshop SDK (software development kit) guidelines don't usually have problems, but this particular plug-in may have taken some liberties with the interface.  I have heard that plug-ins created with some older (non-Adobe) plug-in frameworks have problems similar to what you're describing.

     

    If you can't get a newer version  of the plug-in, then your workaround (to use an older version of Photoshop) is probably your only recourse.
