this issue did not happen with Lightroom beta, but does happen with 1.0 release.
I use Photoshop 5.02 as the external editor. when I select "Edit in photoshp" from the context menu, it opens the photoshop, but photoshop says "cannot find the file". I tried some other programs as the external editor and it seems to me that the problem happens because Lightroom puts quotes around file path, e.g.
instead of just
Is there a a way to fix it? Currently, for each file I have to open it in Explorer and then open it in photoshop. It's annoying and what is most annoying that it used to work in Lightroom beta.

Yes, I use windows. It's XP Pro, not Vista.
D:\ is a local drive.
Everything worked well with betas, the problem appeared only in 1.0
The problem is that it is a rather old photoshop - it's Photoshop 5.02.
With Photoshop CS2 the problem does not happen.
I put another program as an external editor and it displayed the path it is trying to open and this way I understood that Lightroom sends extra quotes.
I am NOT talking about "Photoshop not found" error message. BTW, this is easily fixed through the registry.
I am writing about the message "File not found" that the photoshop itself gives. E.g. you choose "Edit with photoshop" from the context menu, lightroom prepares the tiff file, opens the photoshop and photoshop says "file not found", while the file is actually there. When I chose another program instead of Photoshop, I was able to see the path that it is trying to open.
Currently, I use the following workaround:
1. right-click, then "edit with photoshop". lightroom prepares the tiff file, opens the photoshop, but does not open the file;
2. return to lightroom, right-click on the photo and choose "locate in explorer". lightroom opens the explorer with the selection on the required tiff file;
3. right-click the file and choose "open with photoshop".
this workaround works, but I anyway would like the problem fixed.
