Do you have any additonal plug-ins on the Lenovo, that are not on the Acer?
If so, what are they?
More info, Computer is Core i7-2600 3.4 GHz, 12 GB RAM, 64 bit OS
C: drive has 816 GB free of 906 GB Photoshop(s) installed on C:
E: drive 579 GB free of 596 GB
I have tried: remove all plug-ins from plug-in folder, startup in safe mode, various compatibility settings. All same result - unrecoverable system error
Wil compare plug-ins on Acer vs Lenovo but these are "out of the box" installs of PS, I have not altered any plug-in or other setting since I can't start up the program
I am trying to remember exactly what loads immediately AFTER plug-ins, but think that it might be fonts?
If the issue is NOT with different plug-ins, I would check the fonts installed in Windows on the Lenovo against the ones installed on the Acer. Ps is very sensitive to fonts, and a corrupt, or just poorly-written font, CAN cause it to crash. Should it come down to fonts, perhaps this article will be helpful: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2186476#2186476
It was written for Premiere Pro's Titler (even more sensitive to font issues, than Ps), but contains some good, general info, plus it has links to Adobe KB Articles, which are specific to Ps.
Good luck, and let us know about the plug-ins, when you have had time to survey the two systems.
Tried restoring default fonts, no change for CS2 error. Re-installed PSE12 - no response to shortcut at all. Tried launching PSE12 editor form the program folder - it started and asked for sign-in to activate, the stopped while initializing panels. When I start Organizer from its program folder I get same failure as using the shortcut from desktop. (Send information to Adobe)
I have compared plug-ins to the Acer computer and find no differences for the PSE12 files. Of course I also have CS2 installed on Lenovo with its plug-ins in the CS2 folder.
OK - CS2 is crashing during a step labeled "Initializing suites " Does that provide a clue?
Hi Bill I ser 641 font files on Lenovo vs lt 600 om Acer. I downloaded
Extensis suitcase which finds only 457 fonts on Lenovo all system fonts.
CS crashes during "initializing suites"
PSE crashes during "initializing panels"
