droplets don't work

Mar 11, 2010 2:41 AM

I use a new computer for a few months now and I re-created a number of droplets from photoshop cs4 to use them on this computer (old cum
puter was Windows XP, new computer is Windows 7).


On my new computer the droplets don't work, When I drop a file onto a droplet, Photoshop opens, and then nothing happens.
Browser: Microsoft IE
Operating System: Windows 7

    They never really work on W7. That is a known issue and hinges on the security stuff. I keep forgetting these things, but somewhere I read some tips that get at least a part of them working, so maybe spend a few minutes consulting the mighty Google or whatever...

    I was hoping for a better reply to the droplet issue. I also have W7 and Photoshop CS4 and cannot get a droplet to work. My actions work properly, but when I use a droplet, the only thing that happens is the Photoshop button blinks on the W7 bottom toolbar.


    I am also not finding much out there about solutions to this issue on Adobe's site and Google.


    Please post something here or link to another thread if someone has found a solution to this issue.


    Thank you.

    I realized that a few steps were missing from the full process. Check the posting out here: and try the steps again for your droplets.


    It seems to be more of a Windows 7 issue than Adobe, but there should not be and issue to begin with between the OS and Photoshop.
