Bypass the Unwelcome Screen by creating Desktop shortcuts for the Organizer and the Editor, and restarting your computer.
The Editor's executable is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 10\PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe"
The Organizer's executable is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Elements 10 Organizer\PhotoshopElementsOrganizer.exe"
The Unwelcome Screen leaves a zombie process running which prevents the actual program from launching again.
I did that, but it does exactl the same thing when I try to open with the new shortcut. Opens with a picture from my album, and seconds later shut it down. But thanks .
Are you opening the photo by selecting it in the Organizer, and using "Edit with PSE"?
Can you open and use the Editor from the new shortcut?
ohh, I am such an idiot whit this. Not sure what you mean. I created a shortcut from the editor (cant find the organizer) and when I open that through the new shortcut, I can select by doubble clicking the organize in the top right corner. The screen answer is "Loading the organizer workspace". hereafter I get a nano second view of the organizer page, but nothing more than that..., second time I double click, it gives me the organizer and then everything from there is normal. If I on the organizer in the editor view only click once, I stil get the brief glimpse of the organizer screen, but second time, I only get the drop down bar whater I click once or twice !!
At least I can work with it now, but I have no idea how this is working, or whats wrong...
I recently added 3 movies to the organizer, that I worked with in premier, incl a few pictures as cover photos that I took of the net. All avbl. in the organizer.
That's a interesting thought about the video files. A couple of things to try:
- When you can get the Organizer to start, use the Catalog Manager to repair, then optimize the catalog.
- Delete the videos from the catalog (and not from your drive) to see if they're causing the problem.
