    I can’t launce Photoshop CS 6 from within Lightroom Properly.

      I'm using LIghtroom 4.1 RC2 Camera Raw 7.1 RC, CS6 Master Collection Trial Version, Windows 7

       

      This is a known issue / conflict with the Photoshop 6 Beta and Windows UAC that seems not to have been resolved (See detailed description below)?? If anyone knows of a workaround I would be VERY Grateful… Turning UAC off is not an option nor does it rectify  the problem.

       

      When I select an image right click and choose Edit In “Edit in Adobe Photoshop CS6…” Windows throws a UAC User Account Control warning “Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer” choosing yes opens Photoshop CS6 but the image is never created. I have to exit out of Photoshop. After Photoshop has closed (And a few minutes) Lightroom will then display “The File could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop CS6 could not be launched…” I then get a second UAC User Account Control warning “Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer” and the file is created and opens up in Photoshop. (The last part never happened in the Beta but at least Lightroom now creates a .psd file (In the Beta, I had to first create the PSD using Photoshop 5.1)

       

      However I still can’t get Lightroom to open a dng as a smart object in Photoshop Edit In /  “Open up in Photoshop as a Smart Object” to work at all!! This is ultamatly what I would perfer to be able to do.

      Unfortunately it doesn’t seem that the problem with User Profiles (where the user profile doesn’t reside in the default location C:\Users\XXX) has been resolved… took two days but I finally was able to down load and install Master Collection…

       

      In Windows there is an Administer Icon on lower 1/3 of the Photoshop Icon, indicating that you need to “Run As Administrator” which wasn’t present in the Beta. And when application is launched “User Account Controls” does prompted you “Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer”

       

      On the - Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe I have changed the “Change Settings for All Users” to “Run this program as Administrator” but as with the Beta I still get the User Account Controls prompt each time I launce Photoshop!

       

      It was a real problem with Lightroom 4… I was never able to create a smart object  psd in Lightroom. And creating a psd file required that I create the PSD using Photoshop 5.5 and only after creating the 5.5 PSD could I open the file in Photoshop 6.

       

      Is there some stem that I have missed or some other work around???
