What is the actual error that you receive?
Have you checked the Event Viewer to find the details of the crash (especially the faulting module name)?
Thus far I have not been able to find any actual error code, all I can find is the Incompatible Program.
What does the OS tell you at the time of the crash, word for word ?
I just ran the trouble shooter again and it says that Photoshop is incompatible. There are zero codes given just says that Photoshop is incompatible. Is there a way to find a code that I am not seeing?
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
Now, can you open the Windows Event Viewer, find the Photoshop crashes and get us the details from the crash report?
So far it looks like it is probably a driver problem (video card, printer, or scanner) - but we don't know which one until we know the name of the faulting module.
Also, have you installed all the Photoshop CS6 updates?
Ignore the Microsoft troubleshooting, it is misleading at best.
No, Photoshop is not incompatible.
Faulting application name: Photoshop.exe, version: 188.8.131.52, time stamp: 0x4f61beba
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.2.9200.16578, time stamp: 0x515fac6e
Exception code: 0xc0000374
is this helpful?
Yes, but not as directly as I had hoped.
Most crashes in ntdll.dll are from drivers calling it with bad parmeters.
But it doesn't tell us which driver is the problem.
Since the time that Photoshop was working correctly, what has changed on your system?
Have you updated the OS, or any drivers?
Have you installed a new camera, scanner, or printer?
Have you changed the video card?
And do you have any third party plugins installed? Have you tried disabling them?
Since Photoshop last worked correctly, the OS, windows 8, has updated a few times, unfortunately. I got rid of any third party stuff, still didn't run. My printer hasn't changed since the last time Photoshop worked. Nothing has really changed except for the updates from windows 8. I couldn't pinpoint a time because I have been using Lightroom lately, and recently went onto Photoshop and found that it didn't want to open.
Alright, then it could be almost any driver on your system.
You might be able to narrow it down by noticing what the splash screen is showing just before it crashes.
Otherwise you need to update all the drivers on your system.
And, again, make sure you have all the Photoshop updates installed.
