I have Photoshop Elements 7.0. All of a sudden it will not open. I can find the program in my system, when I click on it, I can see it try to open, but then nothing happens and it disappears. Please help!
Please try couple of probable solutions as mentioned below:
1. Close Elements.
2. Launch the Photoshop Elements Welcome Screen and hold down ctrl + alt + shift as you click Editor.
3. Continue to hold the keys until you see a message box asking if you want to delete Photoshop Elements settings file; click Yes. Elements will open with default preferences.
Solution 2: Try launching directly from exe 'PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe' from location C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\ . Right click on this exe file at this location and select run as admin.
Solution 3: In case any network printer is attached try to launch without network or printer uninstall or make different printer as default.
Solution 4: Try launching with anti-virus off or removing PSE from conflicting list.
On the drive on which you have installed PSE,on my machine it is on C: Go to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\Locales\<locale>\Plug-Ins\Import-Exportand you will find twain plug-in. Remove that plug-in from that location and copy it somewhere else. Now launch PSE and check if it works. For related post for Twain please see this:http://forums.adobe.com/message/2954743#2954743
