elements organizer crash due to libiomp5mt.lib problem

Feb 9, 2013 5:39 AM

I am running Elemnts 11 on WIN7 Home Pro.

Photoshop Elements 11 Editor runs fine but when trying to run the organizer it starts, looks normal for about 2-3 seconds while it is loading folders with pictures and then a dos-window pops up saying:


"OMP: Error #15: Initializing libiomp5mt.lib, but found libiomp5md.dll already initialized.


OMP: Hint: this may cause performance degradation and correctness issues. Set environment variable KMP_DUPLICATE_LIB_OK=TRUE to ginore this problem and force program to continue anyway. Please note that the use of KMP_DUPLICATE_LIB_OK is unsupported and using it may cause undefined behavior. For mor einformation, please see"


for about 1 second bore this window and elements shuts down (I had to take a photo to read the dos text, i.e. it does not stay but shuts down with elements without possibility to interfere).


I have read one similar discussion here that talks about codecs but I am not aware of any purchased or other codecs that cause problems on other applications.


I did un- and re-install elements to no avail.


Thanks for help

    Have you checked for the latest updates for your installed codecs?

    I'm having the same problem & don't know how to check codecs.  Any help would be appreciated.
