          Hi Hertta,


          Do you get any error message while launching Photoshop CS6?


          Are you using a Windows or a Mac machine?


          Have you tried launching Photoshop while holding down the shift key.


          Thank you for posting on Adobe Forums.

              Your installation is bad - the OS can't get version number or parts of required libraries.


              Uninstall Photoshop, then reinstall to replace the corrupt files.
