          You've given very little to go on.  For example you haven't even said what operating system you're running on.


          A very, VERY generic piece of "fix it" advice, based on no information other than what you've given:  Try resetting your Photoshop preferences to defaults.


          To do this:  Cold-start Photoshop and IMMEDIATELY depress and hold the Control, Shift, and Alt keys simultaneously (Command, Shift, and Option on a Mac).  If you've gotten the keys down in time - and you have to be very quick - Photoshop will prompt you to delete the current preferences (which may be corrupted), leading to the establishment of out-of-box preferences.  If you do not see the confirmation dialog you weren't quick enough with the keys and you can try again.

            Hallo Noel,

            thank you for your answer. You are right - to less information.


            I have an iMac with OSX 10.9.1 - I think the latest update.


            I think the problem resulsts from a trail-installation of PS CS6. I had CS6 installed in a 30-days trial version. Than I bought a prepaid-card(1-year-licence) for photoshop CC. I aktivated PS CC and erverything was alright until I tried to Start PS cc. I got the message "Can`t initialize photoshop,because ther was a programm error". But I can start PS CS6. I tried erverything I think. I deinstalled PS CS6 and installed CC new but always the same problem. PS CS6 works perfect, but I can´t start PS CC. Maybe it´s a licence-problem. I always got the fewedback, that I registered PS CC but it don´t work.


            I tried to delete the current preferences. It´s ok to come to this function, but the result is always the same message.

            Thank you for your help
