    CS6 Not responding

    Audrey Hinsman

      I have CS6 and LR4.3 installed (for a while).  I am not not able to Edit In LR4.3 4 photos that I wish to make into a panorama.  CS6 will start to the first window and then locks (Not Responding).  I have uninstalled and reinstalled CS6 and delete the preferences, all to no avail.

          Can you please describe in more detail how Photoshop figures in this?  How are you invoking it exactly.  I ask because you mention LR4.


          Are you using the Photoshop Photomerge feature?

            The problem is that CS6 will not start.  It starts momentarily and then freezes.  The first time I noticed it was when I tried to merge 4 photos from LR4.3 (Edit in - Merge to Panorama in CS).  CS6 started and then froze.  Then I tried to start CS6 by itself with exactly the same results.

              Does anything get logged in your system's Event Log?


              You could try resetting Photoshop's preferences by pressing and holding Control - Shift - Alt (or Command - Shift - Option if a Mac) immediately upon cold-starting Photoshop.  If you're quick enough - and you have to be very quick to get the keys down - it will prompt you to confirm deletion of your current preferences set.

                I have tried twice (successfully) to delete the preference.  And the problem continues.  What do I look for in the system's Event Log?  I did review it but saw nothing related to Adobe or CS6.

                  If you are not fast enough you might have better luck hold down 2 of the keys, start PS and immediately press and hold the 3rd key.


                  If windows OS look in Help for Event Log instructions.  Look for Faulting Module line.
