What are the steps you're doing to try and open the Editor?
Any change if you restart machine? Does it launch at least once after computer restart?
I assume that you click on Edit button and nothing happens after that. If that's the case, you can try following - http://bit.ly/HUzzBR ... Let's see if you are able to delete preferences or not.
OS version, Elements 9. From the opening screen, if I click on "Edit" it
looks like it is loading but does not open. If I go to "Organize" first and
try to open the Editor from there, I have the same problem. Same if I go to
the menu at the top and try to open it.
On the drive on which you have installed PSE,on my machine it is on C:
Go to c:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 9\Locales\<locale>\Plug-Ins\Import-Exportand you will find twain plug-in. Remove that plug-in from that location and copy it somewhere else.
Now launch PSE and check if it works.
Try resetting the PSE preferences by
1. Close Elements.
2. Launch the Photoshop Elements Welcome Screen and hold down ctrl + alt + shift as you click Edit.
3. Continue to hold the keys until you see a message box asking if you want to delete Photoshop Elements settings file; click Yes. Elements will open with default preferences.
- Disable any anti-virus software just to confirm if it is not blocking PSE Editor.
In case any network printer is attached try to launch without network or printer uninstall.
try and let me know your comments.
I'm having the same problem as Sandy and I tried your second idea but it doesn't work.
I just fixed the problem. I searched the hard drive for the editor and found that it was moved to a different location than Adobe Elements 10. I think when I first started the program I accidentally clicked and dragged it to the new location. I've dragged it back and it is fine now.
