Thanks for the quick response. I hoped there was a quicker way . . . But I understand.
No go. I'm a professor using the university's site license for all my Adobe programs (we have them all). I just had someone from IT in my office doing the complete uninstall/reinstall as per your suggestion.
I then opened LR and was given the UPDATE window. I updated to the newest version (the lady with the wonderful makeup in blue and white), and it immediately found my latest catalog and opened it. Fine so far.
I then selected a file and hit CMD E to open/edit that NEF file in PS. That's where it hangs. The path used by LR goes to my backup disk, and some of the necessary files are not found there?? So it hangs. And suggests I reinstall.
No where in LR can I redirect it to the correct PS folder. I believe I need to d more than a simple uninstall; I need to wipe all LR program files and start fresh (which the reinstall doesn't do).
OR, is there some line of code where that is accessible? A simple redirect will solve all these problems. Meanwhile I'm stuck and cannot edit in PS while using a LR modified file.
Please help. Until this is resolved I can't use LR.
