    error: prevented the text engine from being initialized


      I am getting the following error when attempting to use the text tool with my photoshop (12.0) - windows 7.


      "could not complete your request because something prevented the text engine from being initialized"


      I've attempted to follow some posts from others to fix without success.


      There are two fonts in my fonts folder that are shortcuts - and the fonts don't exist in the folder. Also, I can't delete the shortcut font from the fonts folder.

      (I'm posting this now... and might have a solution. Just in case, I want this conversation started.)
