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!
Windows 7, all updates installed, Vanderlee Snowflakes. It worked in CS5 32 bit.
I tried uninstalling CS6 32 bit and reinstalling CS5 32 bit but don’t seem to be able to do that.

(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?
There doesn’t seem to be any newer version.
I did have problems that I couldn’t figure out before I uninstalled CS5. I have the space. At what level do I set the available RAM having both versions?

I asked about RAM because I thought the Memory Access Violation had something to do with RAM. Nobody has explained to me, yet, what that means.
I have reinstalled CS5. The plug in works with CS5 32 bit. I don’t like using the space and when I had both installed just after I got CS6 I had problems that went away when I uninstalled CS5.

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If you can't get a newer version of the plug-in, then your workaround (to use an older version of Photoshop) is probably your only recourse.
