can not open Lightroom 5 image in Photoshop Elements 12

I just purchased PSE 12. In Lightroom 5, I can set up an Edit in Photoshop Elements preset.

 

When I try to edit a .dng or .cr2 raw image in PSE from Lr5, the first dialog I get asks if I want to edit a copy with Lr adjustments. Then PSE opens but no file(s) are loaded.

 

If I open the file directly from PSE 12, it will open (with Lr5 adjustments)... but that's not the point.

 

Any ideas on getting the Lightroom 5 --> PSE 12 workflow to operate properly?

    Normally the problem is that the link to the external editor in Lightroom 5 points to the main PSE executable, when it should point to the Photoshop Elements Editor executable file.

     

    Either that, or space aliens have abducted your photo.

    You have to go into Preferences and then External editor and then set up PSE as an additional external editor, pointing to the PSE Editor application executable.
