Hello everyone, I've always open raw files from bridge in ACR, since last evening, suddenly, while I am trying to open an image in camera raw I keep getting an error message that reads " Camera Raw editing is not enabled. Camera Raw editing required that a qualifying product has been launched at least once to enable this feature." At last I cannot open files in ACR from Bridge at all. After a search in the net I've seen that it seems to be a rather common trouble but none of the solutions I've found (I've read of all in this forum) works for me. Did someone found a final solution to it? Im going crazy traying to understand what is that qualifying product in the message.
already done, thanks, that annoying "Camera Raw Editing is not enabled" message is always there whenever I select an image and right click on open in camera raw, or try any other shortcut to open the file in ACR, moreover the message appear even if i try to select Camera Raw preferences in Bridge.
done, opened PS an then select browse in Bridge, did not solve the problem, also tried opening dreamweaver, i's all the same. I've read all threads concerning such a error on this an other forums and checked them, in a few cases the problem disappeared but almost always the problem remained unresolved, for what I've read Adobe support did not find a solution up to a few weeks ago. Now I'm asking if anyone, anywhere has some hopeful news regard this trouble...
PS, purged the cache of almost everything...
When Bridge worked before and not now, a reset of
preferences is usually recommended. Have you tried this? If not press and hold the Ctrl key and start bridge. You should get a reset window. Choose all 3 options.
Just as you searched the web to look for solutions, it would be helpful for others to know how you solved your problem. So give a few words on that, even it it just happened.
For instance, was it a reboot and got it to work after visiting other Adobe applications?
sure, sorry It was un impredictable result... I deactivated PS and then reactivate with serial and it works now, I already tried this and didn't work the first time i did.
Thanks for help
FWIW, this has happened to me twice as a result of a nightmare computer upgrade. I had to change my motherboard and CPU several times and twice, these different combinations caused Adobe activation to become confused. I got an error about number of activations exceeded and also this error about Camera Raw editing is not enabled. How I solved it:
a) Called Adobe Support who were able to reset the number of activations, activated Creative Suite.
b) Exit all open Adobe applications and restart them, it worked.
This is a minor varation on the previous user's comment, where deactivation/activation worked. I believe that Adobe Support did the deactivation.
It would be nice if Adobe activation were smarter; I've only ever had one computer, never two and certainly never three.
