Bridge CC opens older version of PS instead of PS CC

Jun 29, 2013 6:03 AM

Under Windows 7: Bridge CC "Open" and "Open with->Photoshop (default)" in the thumbnail context menu open PS5 which has been since uninstalled leaving PS6 and PS CC.

 

"Open in camera raw" opens Camera Raw 8.1 associated with CC programs.

 

"Place->In Photoshop" opens PS CC

 

Ai files open in AI CC

 

All CC programs show as up to date in the CC program manager

 

I have opened Bridge with Ctl-click, reset preferences and cleared the bridge cache. As expected this did not clear the problem.

 

Opening a psd file from Windows Fle Explorer opens PS6, not PS CC

 

I can correct the Windows File Explorer association with Control Panel-> Default Programs -> Set associations but I shouldn't have to. The CC installs should have done that.

 

How do I correct the file associations that are internal to Bridge? I'm reluctant to Uninstall->Download->reinstall without being relatively sure that will clear the problem.

 

Thanks.

    You can set the file type associations in Bridge preferences itself, either using the reset default or set it manual.

     

    Ofte an uninstall - reinstall does not solve older problems unless you use the Adobe Cleaner Tool.

     

    Also restarting Bridge while holding down control key and choose reset preferences often solves problems.

    You have run into the problem where uninstalling a previous version, after install the current version, has messed up the file association.

     

    You can uninstall and run Adobe script cleaner then reinstall or fix the registry if manually changing file associations does not work.  See this thread, and look at posts # 20 and #29.  http://forums.adobe.com/message/5437534#5437534

    Update on this issue:

     

    Concerning Ps CS6 seizing Dominance:

     

    I did try UNinstalling and then re-installing Ps CC 14.00 but Ps CS6 still retained "Dominance" (meaning that it was impossible to change System Permissions to recognise that all PSDs should always be opened from the Finder in Ps CC).

     

    Finally I uninstalled Ps CS6 from this HD and now CC has established "Dominance".

     

    Bridge CS6 was NOT removed from my HD when I uninstalled Ps CS6. (You need to keep Bridge CS6 until Adobe replaces the the AOM Panel in Bridge CC.)

     

    Also, choosing the Default File Associations in Bridge CC, now correctly sets all Photoshop-related Associations to Ps CC instead of Ps CS6.

     

    ------

     

    Duplicated from another thread beause there are multiple threads all discussing the same issue!

    You should not have to uninstall CS6 to fix file association problems, in fact that can cause file association problems.  For some users a registry fix is needed.

     

    You may have been working in CS6.  Remember, if you stop subscribing to CC you have nothing.  Make sure you keep installation disks of CS6 with s/n.

     

    A better option is to deactivate CS6.

    IF I stop using Ps CC I can simply re-install CS6 with my original SN at any time.

     

    I have been trying to fix this issue since 17th June and the only way (out of a great many things that I tried including the use of Terminal!) was to uninstall CS6 (for which i no longer have a current need anyway).

     

    No need to keep CS6 hanging around, taking up HD space, and simply causing trouble!!

    I put in my comments more for others that read this thread than for you.  If you got it to work that is what counts.  Just make sure you have CS6 on disks as I never trust downloads that that you might not find in a few years.

    Good advice in general.

     

    However,  I always keep either the original boxed DVDs or burned-to-DVD copies of any software that I have purchased on-line and downloaded  -- all  of them labeled with their SNs.
