    LR CC 2015.7 The files could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5 could not be launched.

    photosynthesis.be

      I have this  problem since upgrading to LR CC 2015.7 + PS 2015.5 on Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

      Never had this before.

       

      This is the sequence that produces the problem:

      - Neither LR or PS are started

      - Start LR

      - Select 2 or more photos

      - Right click, then select Edit In..., then Open as Layers in Photoshop

      - An unusually long wait, then the error message reported in this thread

       

      To work-around this:

      - Neither LR or PS are started

      - Start LR

      - Select 2 or more photos

      - Start PS

      - Right click, then select Edit In..., then Open as Layers in Photoshop

      - After a wait which appears longer than before the update to the latest LR & PS versions, LR automatically switches to PS as it is supposed to

       

      Problem does NOT occur in this sequence

      - Neither LR or PS are started

      - Start LR

      - Select 1, 2 or more photos

      - Right click, then Select Edit in..., then Edit in Adobe Photoshop

       

      In a helpx.adobe article I found reference to the photoshop.plist file, suggesting to thrash it, which I did

      (although I am not sure at all the article is related to this problem)

      When PS starts up, the thread says PS recreates the plist file. I do not see that happening.

      I restored the plist file from my thrash, then restarted LR, still same problem.
