[Moved to Lightroom forum]
But before you try to edit the registry re-install Photoshop (not Lightroom!)
Editing the registry is a dangerous thing - if you make a mistake Windows might not start next time you boot.
Thank you for the reply. But HELP! I followed the instructions for reinstalling but first removed PS CC and then attempted the reinstall. I even went back to Adobe to download a fresh copy of the software. It download successfully and when attempting the reinstall, I now have problems in that area. I click on the file “CreativeCloudSet-UP” and then it says initializing and then displays the Creative Cloud Apps Menu. It is blank! It shows no options whatsoever and I cannot install PS. What do I do now?
Thanks for your help,
I`m sorry I can`t help you with that. I am not a subscriber to CC and don't know the ins and outs of that.
There is a special forum for questions regarding installation and setting up of programs from the CC. I suggest you post your question there. This is the link:
Thank you and I appreciate your responses.
I suddenly have the same problem in Lightroom 5. It worked yesterday, but all "Photo / edit in" optons are greyed out today. I didn't do any updates or change any preferances.
I think I just figued it out. I'm useing smart previews and I don't have the drive attached. I'll bet that's it.

Certainly originals must be online to edit in Photoshop - dunno if that's OP's problem or not. Note: if you really *do* want to edit (a reduced-rez copy of the original) in Photoshop whilst original is offline, then just export to catalog as DNG, so no re-compression, then edit that instead - that may be the next best thing *iff* it's really what you want to do...
@Check the "Catalog" Pane. If you are in a quick collection for some reason LR5 doesn't let you "Edit in."
Click onto "all photographs" and edit away.
I'm having the same issue. My drive is attached and I clicked onto "all photographs" but edit in Photoshop CC 2014 is still grayed out.
The image must be smart preview, to use edit in option , you must have original image
check just below the histogram, it will show original image or smart preview or original+smart preview
Still not working for me. Ever since the last update (last week), I have to uninstall and reinstall PS. Creative Cloud keeps going to black screen too. When one goes the other goes. Pretty frustrating.
Old post, but still some new additions to it. In my case it was because I moved files to a new computer and it was only seeing the Smart Previews... the actual Raw files were unlinked to Lightroom. In this situation there was a grey bod on the top of each thumbnail. I clicked on it and did a simple search to locate the file. All other files were automatically linked thereafter. Hope this works for you.
Are you still seeing this issue? If yes, could you try uninstalling and installing Lr(having PS already installed).
Also open Creative cloud and 'relaunch' it using cmd+option+R(Mac)/ctrl+alt+R(Win) to solve black screen issue, this should work.
Please let me know what happens.
So, that's what I have done (each time), is I uninstall either Lightroom or PS and then re-install. Usually this greyed out issue occurs when Create Cloud goes black-screen on me, then I just end up having to uninstall/reinstall everything. Not the perfect mix, but oh well .
