Corefoundation.dll is not provided with Photoshop, and is not relied-upon by any Photoshop components as far as I know. You have correctly surmised that it's involved with Apple software.
Have you copied any plug-ins from a prior installation of Photoshop?
A quick search of my own Windows 7 x64 system reveals corefoundation.dll in these locations:
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\CoreFoundation.dll
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\CoreFoundation.dll
Notably neither of these folders in in my path.
Hi Noel..thanks for the help
I show three versions of coreFoundation.dll in a search
C:\Program Files (x86)Common Files\Apple\Apple Applications Support…1,050KB date 2/20/2012
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64 Bit) …849 KB date 5/14/2010
C:\Program Files (x86)Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5 …610 KB date 30/2010
I have both CS5 64 bit and 32 bit loaded along with CS6 for now.
I did update some onOne software from cs5 to cs6 but deleted it thinking it may have been the problem.
The only other plug-ins are Imageomic Noiseware and Topaz Labs ReMask 3
Interesting enough I just updated late night and today I got the error. I can launch PS from LR without getting the error and so I went back looked at the older directory.
In "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014" I found ONCoreFoundation9.dll and a couple of other ON Files. These are the ON1 software program I just copied to "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015" and everything seems to fine for now.
