Any thoughts on this, anybody? The problem is driving me crazy, and I'm seeing other threads filled with reports of the same problem.
ejbSFO, Could you try to install both PS CC & PS CC 2014 along with Lr 5.5 and check if the Edit In feature works fine.
Please respond to this thread and let me know how does it go.

Thanks for the reply. Is Photoshop cc version available for download? I'm away from my desk now, will try your suggestion soon.
and is there a specific order to install the programs?
is adobe working in a patch to fix this or the reinstall of PS CC 2014 is gonna be the solution to this?
I am using Windows 8.1, LR 5.5 PS CC 2014 and this issue has continued through recent versions and for me, I think it started in November. I've all but given up- can anyone offer a solution?
I was running Lightroom as Administrator and Photoshop without- they should be in-sync. As soon as I did, my raw file opened immediately in PS CC 2014 as a .cr2 file! I don't know how this is done on a Mac because I'm a Windows guy so if you have
Win7 or Win8, simply right-click on your shortcut or application in the start menu and select Properties.
Select the Compatibility tab and make sure that 'Run this program as Administrator' is unchecked. Perform the same for the Lr application. They should immediately work!
Does anyone have a solution for Mac?
It's driving me crazy when Adobe screws up like this and support is non-existing. They mess up the work flow of professional photographers. Please fix ASAP!!!!
The solution for most people on both the Mac and PC has been to uninstall and reinstall PS-CC-2014.
Can you/anyone tell me where to find the PS CC (not 2014) download? I've looked all over Adobe, and only find the 2014 version.
Glad it worked for you, JimmysPhoto, but I tried the same fix and it didn't do a thing. On to the next attempt...
ejbSFO, You can get the previous versions of CC using the creative cloud app itself.
Click on the below link to know how to do so. I replied on a similar forum post.
Also, there is no specific order to install PS CC & CC 2014 but its always good to install the previous version first, followed by the latest one.
So, try to install PS CC & PS CC 2014 and that should help.
We are aware of this issue and are already working on a fix for the same.
JimmysPhoto, glad to hear that your issue got fixed by running the application with admin rights. Rather its always recommended to have full read/write permissions on both Lr & PS before running the apps. Thanks for sharing your resolution.
Windows users can try the same by : Right click on the .exe file > Select Run as Administrator.
Can also try to Enable the hidden admin account | Windows 8, 7 - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/3040.enable-disable-the-local-h idden-built-in-administrator-account-in-windows-7.aspx
Let me know if that helps.

I found the previous version of Photoshop. After clearing everything out - or so I thought - installed PS CC, followed by LR 5.5. Success! LR opened pics of all types in a normal manner. Only weird thing was, despite my renaming the old PS directory, PS CC still found my previous workspace files.
Then I installed PS 2014 without removing or altering anything... and I'm right back to where I was before: same minute+ delay in LR, followed by the same "This file could not be edited..." message even though PS 2014 does open but does nothing, same inability to open NEF or JPGs, same eventual conversion of file to a PSD dumped into PS 2014. Of course, I don't have the option of using CC now, as 2014 has taken over.
So Now what do I do? Uninstall 2014? Clear everything off again and start all over again? Obviously I missed some parts of PS/LR in my last attempt to remove everything. How do I do that.
Frustrated and frustrateder...
I would suggest you to uninstall PS CC & PS CC 2014 and then remove the remnants of the installation by running the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool ( http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/cs5-cleaner-tool-installation-problems.html )
Re-install only PS CC 2014 from Creative Cloud and then check.
Thanks for the reply, Arpit. I'm keeping your note handy, but won't try it right now. I finally "solved" this mess for the moment though by no means fixed it.
Much experimenting showed that Photoshop CC (last version) and Lightroom 5.5 (new version) play well together. So I rolled back my Win 7 system to before I installed PS 2014, removing it.
Now I can work again, though without the new version of PS.
As far as I'm concerned, it's up to Adobe now to fix this mess. One commenter on another thread - Adobe staff, I think - said they were busy with other fixes and this wasn't a priority. I hope s/he is wrong.
Thanks for all your help.
In the end I have to uninstall and then install PS CC 2014 again to solve the problem.
This worked for me Arpit [your response - Jun 26, 2014 5:51 PM] . Also had to reinstall my Google Nik plug-ins but that's no big deal.
It seems to me some of the filters are working a little quicker, Shake Reduction for example,
Almost a month now and I'm still having the problem. Here's what I've tried:
- Installed PS 2014 with pre-existing PS CC and LR 5.5 with pre-existing LR 5.4. Then...
- Uninstalled LR 5.5 and PS 2014, reinstalled PS2014 first, LR second. Didn't work.
- Did the opposite - reinstalled LR5.5 first, PS2014 second. Didn't work.
- Removed PS CC and LR 5.4, reinstalled LR 5.5 and PS 2014 (in both orders). Didn't work.
- Removed everything Adobe from the computer:
- Creative Cloud, PS CC, PS 2014, LR 5.4 and 5.5
- Deleted everything I could find relating to PS CC, PS 2014, LR 5.4 and 5.5.
- Ran AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool.exe to remove all traces.
- Reinstalled Creative Cloud, PS 2014 and LR 5.5. Didn't work.
- Uninstalled PS 2014 and LR 5.5, reinstalled in reverse order. Didn't work.
One clue to the problem I stumbled across by accident leads me to believe the problem is something to do with ACRaw. If I try to open a JPG in LR 5.5 it opens fine in PS 2014. However if I try to open a RAW file (Nikon's NEF format) I get the "The file could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 could not be launched" message.
This is driving me buggy. Without the ability to go back and forth between LR and PS, the workflow is useless.
Any new thoughts?
I'm having the same problem running mac pro 2013 and PS 2014 and LR 5.5. I tried everything, but at the end I wonder adobe's update fixing the problem. Still waiting...
Same problem here. Seems that every time I use a CC product these days there's some sort of error that requires hours of hunting & investigating to fix up.
