CS5 will not start

Apr 27, 2013 5:59 PM

Hi Guys.  After running perfectly for months my CS5 will now not start from either the icons or the applications folder.  I've done the following;


1. Uuninstalled it.

2. Deleted all the relevant folders.

3. Run the clean up utility.

4. Rebooted the computer.

5, Reinstalled CS5.

6. Run the updater.

7. Restarted the computer.


Everything else (Bridge, RAW etc) works fine, and if I open the CS5 package and run the unix executable it fires up.  The terminal window does say "No javatime present, requesting insatll", but I have the latest Java running on my machine.  I'm running OSX on a 2012 imac i7.  All software and drivers are upto date.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

    Interesting since Photoshop CS5 doesn't use Java in any way...

    But you could be hitting the Apple bugs where Apple thinks it needs Java, even though it doesn't.
