I have Elements 11, using windows 8. When I am in the Editor mode I can't open the Organizer, I get a message that elements isnt working and needs to shut down. I also can't get a picture I am looking at in the Organizer to pop open in the Editor without first going to the Editor and opening it from there.
Please reset Organizer and Editor preferences and see if the issue still happens.
For Editor, launch editor keeping Ctrl+Alt+Shift keys pressed. Delete the settings file when prompted.
For Organizer, go to %appdata%\adobe\elements organizer\11.0\organizer and delete psa.prf and status.dat files
From Organizer to Editor:
1. Please delete status.dat and psa.prf again.
2.Navigate to 'PhotoshopElementsOrganizer.exe' located inside:
From Editor to Organizer:
1. Please follow solution #1 as mention on: http://psekb.blogspot.in/2013/04/pse-editor-is-not-launching-windows.h tml
2. Now try to launch Organizer from Editor.
Please let me know if it doesn't help.
