I can't get Adobe Bridge to start

Apr 29, 2013 11:33 PM

I have downloaded a Trial version of PS CS6 and it works fine but I can't get Bridge 64 bit or 32 bit to start. There are no error messages it just does nothing. I have run a update also and that didn't fix anything.

    Hi Frisby100.

     

    What happens when you right clcik on Bridge and select 'Run as Administrator' ?

    Was it working for you before?

    Do you have CS5 running in the background?  Open Task Manager applications tab and look for Bridge.exe.  Only one verion of Bridge can run at any one time.

     

    Also, there is a conflict with CS2 and CS6.  Will have to look back in questions to see if just uninstalling it will solve problem. 

     

    Bridge is part of PS so can not be unistalled seperately.

    Look at this thread for the CS2 problem, especially post #13 and below.  http://forums.adobe.com/message/4854537#4854537?tstart=0#4854537

    So this did not apply?  Remember AppData is a hidden file.

     

    I finally got it to launch via instructions from another web page. In my case, I am running Win 7 Professional 64-bit and previously loaded Photoshop and Bridge versions CS2 (along with Illustrator and InDesign CS2), which might have been part of the problem. The solution for me was to create an empty "Bridge CS2" folder in the C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\. Worked like a charm.
