Unable to open Bridge CS6 after installing Adobe Photoshop Elements 8

I have been using Bridge CS6 successfully until I installed Photoshop Elements 8 to use with a scanner I bought.  After the installation, when clicking on Bridge CS6 it opens Bridge CS5.   I had a look at some of the forums and tried Ctrl-clicking on Bridge CS6, but it still opens  Bridge CS5.  I have also re-installed Photoshop CS6 in the hope that this will fix it.  Any suggestions as how to get Bridge CS6 going again will be appreciated!

    and tried Ctrl-clicking on Bridge CS6



    Do you mean hold down control while starting Bridge CS6 and choose reset preferences?


    From the control click I presume you are on windows?, can you be more specific?

    Some users experience File Association problems if they uninstall CS5 after they have installed CS6.  Does this fit your situation?


    Don't think PSE8 will have an effect.  That is an old program, but believe the old PSE program that had a conflict with PS was older than than that, and it was not a file association problem.
