I recently purchased and installed Adobe CS4 Design Premium for my new sony vaio LV. Right away I noticed that Photoshop and Bridge do not have the proper logos in the application list. Once I opened Photoshop (64 bit) It seemed to work fine. I opened and image file, but when I tried to add and edit text, the program became inactive and Windows popped up to say that the program had stopped working. Windows then checks for a solution to the problem, determines nothing and does not present an error report. I can't seem to keep the program open long enough to perform even one task. I saved/attached 2 screen shots in word.
I agree with John. A bad install is the most likely cause. From the looks of it, none of the programs related to 64bit PS seems to have been installed/ configured correctly, so things inevitably go haywire. Running the clean script and re-installing seems advisable.
Could a bad install explain why mine has "stopped working"? I've had to install it twice because I keep getting that message, and I've had to re-install it twice because of having to do a couple system recoveries. I'm tired of calling Adobe to tell them that I need to re-register my software! I don't understand why I keep getting that message.
And, fwiw, if I first open the non-64bit version, then close it, the 64bit version will open without that message. What gives? I've also run the cleaner, and that helped for a little while, but started getting the error again.
