Photoshop Won't Open -- Error Message

Jan 21, 2014 11:04 AM

My Photoshop CC won't open. It pops up the following error:


Photoshop.exe -- Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point

?Terminate@StructuralImageEditing@@YAXXZ could not be located int he dynamic link library PatchMatch.dll.


I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, but get the same issue.


Any help would be much appreciated.

    I also get this. When I tried to run an update last week it failed, but I was able to use Photoshop. This morning, after a restart, it no longer opens. Creative Cloud updater says the last update that was installed was 19 days ago, but it at least attempted to update 5 days ago with Illustrator and InDesign (their updates completed successfully).
