Faulting module name: nvd3d9wrap.dll, version: 188.8.131.520,
Your NVidia video card driver is crashing. Update your driver from NVidia's website. If that does not help, then contact NVidia so they can get more information to fix the driver bug.
I just renamed the
C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\CoProcManager\nvd3d9wrap.dll
C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\CoProcManager\nvd3d9wrap.bad
And photoshop will now launch, for what it's worth.
You really need to update the driver to get that DLL fixed, it is part of the driver, and the driver might need it to function.
Well. I'm current on the nvidia driver and the lastest version installed the same file on my machine, I renamed it bad because once again photoshop was not working, and then once it was .bad again, photoshop was fine. I looked into what the driver was and it's for storing screen resolutions and other misc information. It didn't sound that mission critical, and I haven't crashed again today. I'll keep going and let you know if my system blows up, but for something which is supposed to be rock solid driver wise--- a quadro 4000m-- I'm not impressed.
Also, this issue had broken cs6. CS6 works as well now. I should also note that there is an NVIDIA folder for the 64bit version of the driver as well. I had to rename the file in:
C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\coprocmanager\
I had to do this after completely nuking the driver back to nothing with Driver Sweeper and rebooting and installing the 320.78-quadro-notebook-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql drive. So I'm just giving anyone else that runs into this options, because I was really upset yesterday when photoshop would insta-crash upon launch. And since the file has the same early june date that I originally renamed .bad, I don't have a lot of faith that nVidia is going to fix it.
