Just started trial of Adobe Photoshop CC ( CS6 and Bridge CS 6)
Photoshop downloaded ok but Bridge CS6 will not open after installation.
I have used Adobe Bridge with CS2 before but since removing CS2 and installing CS6 and Adobe Bridge 6 64Bit Adobe Bridge will not open.
Moving this discussion to the Bridge General Discussion forum. Also I believe the OP has installed Photoshop CS6, which includes Bridge, as opposed to Photoshop CC which will be available in June.
CS2 seems to conflict with CS6. One user found this to work. AppData is a hidden folder in case you try this.
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.
You might have to use the Adobe Script Cleaner to get rid of traces of the CR2 files.
I am running Windows 7(64 bit) and suddenly Bridge stopped working.Reinstalltion didnot work.Hoping that it will work smoothly I upgraded to Windows 8. But still not working .My system is having only cs6 prod Prem(not earlier versions). I followed curt Y also, but of no use.Any help is welcome
It might be worth giving your computer a scrub after you deactivate and uninstall. CS leaves lots of rubbish behind.
