    Photoshop stopped opening

    mattmanmar

      Every time I open Photoshop CC (prior to 2014 version) it either quits while opening and has no response or comes up with this error message "Some of the application components are missing from the Application directory, Please reinstall the application" I used this application without any problems less than 24 hours ago and haven't messed with any files or with the computer at all and today it has quit working

       

      Running on desktop Mac running OSX 10.6.8

      Adobe Creative Cloud has the same problem, but never comes up with an error message

          Did you ever move the application from its default location?

           

          Did you perhaps create a folder or sub-folder in which to hide it in a misguided attempt to "organize things"?

           

          If so, you are indeed going to have to uninstall, run the CC Cleaner Tool, and re-install from scratch.

           

          On the Mac, you have to respect and stay away from the default install location of Adobe applications scrupulously.
