Is the following file on your system?
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\Required\Plug-Ins\Extensions\ScriptingSupport.8li
Have done anything exceptional, like copy plug-ins from an older version of Photoshop?
Thanks for taking time to answer. Yes, that file is there, in the same exact spot. No, I have not moved any other plug-ins from older versions of PS recently.
I think I've seen that one other person has reported a problem like this here in the past few weeks. I don't recall a resolution, but if no one else chimes in with specific advice, it may be that an uninstall and reinstall might be in order (on the general assumption that something went wrong with the install).
Perhaps even before taking the "nuclear option" above, the "10,000 lb conventional bomb" option of resetting all your Photoshop preferences to defaults might be something to try: To do so, press and hold Control - Shift - Alt simultaneously immediately upon cold-starting Photoshop. If you get the keys down quickly enough - and you have to be really quick - it will prompt you to confirm deletion of your current preferences, which will lead to the establishment of a fresh default set. If it does not prompt you, you haven't been quick enough to get the keys down.
That was fun racing the SSD during start-up! I reset the preferences, but that did not do the trick. I'll wait a bit longer before trying the uninstall and re-install again to see if anyone else has successfully tackled the problem. I appreciate your help.
Well, I gave up.
I uninstalled Photoshop CC (2014), the recent updated version, and found the older version of Photoshop CC that was the latest just a few weeks ago, and installed it. All my functions work now. More than a bit disappointed in Adobe on this.
I also have this problem and I see that there are several threads regarding this issue and some of them seem to have solved their problem by re-installing 2014.
This did not work for me.
I decided to call Adobe support and what I learned is a little disturbing. Photoshop CC 2014 does not support photomerge. The tech said that Adobe has decided to drop the photomerge and similar features from Photoshop CC 2014. They will continue to support it in Photoshop CC.
So, back to my issue: I had installed Photoshop CC 2014 and kept Photoshop CC as well as CS6 on my machine.
I was able to use Bridge, which was linked to CS6, Lightroom or Photoshop CC 2014 stand alone. However, I never did try Photoshop CC stand alone. Lightroom was linked to 2014.
According to the tech, I should be able to fix the problem by removing all 3 software and then re-install in this order: Photoshop CC 2014, Photoshop CC, then Lightroom.
I am more than an hour into the process.... I'll be back.

You need to stop listening to those ridiculous phone techs in India. Adobe has done no such thing, and has said it's a bug that will be fixed.
