You posted your question in the non-technical Lounge forum, which is where you can connect with your peers for conversations that don't directly relate to product help and support.
I’ll move your question to the Photoshop forum so that you can get the answer you are looking for.

Thanks Barb, I apologize. Can you provide me with the link to that? I'm having a difficult time finding that
I already moved your question over. You are in the right place. Someone will come along soon to help.
I'm getting the same issue. It seems to have something to do with an addon/extension. I don't have the error if I hold shift while launching the program.
see with my situation, it doesn't happen consistently... so i couldn't really tell if that would help it or not. I'm thinking it has something to do with editing the photo outside of lightroom and then editing it in bridge with the metadata. But like i said, it's random enough that I can't rememebr off the of my head if that is consistent with each case I've had it happen to me.
