When you are choosing the "Edit in function" are you using the shortcut Ctrl+E or the menu bar? See the attached screen capture.
What do you see as the primary program for this function?
It should be PS CC 2014! For some reason it appears that Lightroom is choosing one of the "Older Versions of PS" (do you really need any other versions of PS installed?)
The only thing that I can think of is how did you update to ACR 8.7.1? Since it will be used in PS CC 2014, PS CC and also PS CS6. Which one did you use the update the ACR Plugin?
I am having the same issue, but opening in CS6. I tried the keyboard shortcut, manually using the "edit in" menue. Both ways opens CS6, but does not open the image. This worked in all previous versions of LR5. I would love some help!
Hello - I have tried opening the image either the pull down menu function, or right-clicking and selecting "edit in" on the menu that appears. I do not use ctrl-e to open. Here are screen shots that show the edit selection menu and the resulting "wrong version of ACR"
message. As you'll see, I am attempting to open the image in PS CC2014.
Regarding the other question about ACR 8.7.1, Adobe offers this as a separate download that I found on their site. Assuming the Adobe CC automated installation of newer software versions went awry for some reason, I downloaded this and installed it separately.
I am now going through the process of uninstalling and reinstalling LR and PS softwares to see if a full reinstall resolves the issue.
Referring to the actual first screen capture are you actually selecting the "Edit in Adobe Photoshop CC 2014"? If so I do not understand why you get the second error message which refers to PS CS3?
What happens if you select the "render using Lightroom" option does PS CS3 open with the rendered file?
