    Photoshop 2017 on Windows 7 won't open files.


      I can't open existing files in Photoshop. I've tried opening many different files of various types (including .jpgs and .tiffs) the File Menu, going through Lightroom (which works fine), through  Bridge, double-clicking files through Explorer, dragging and dropping, using "Recent Files". I don't get any error messages; Photoshop simply doesn't open a new window.


      I can create a new file, which creates a new window.

      The only error I can find is in the Windows Event log:

      Faulting application name: Photoshop.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x57fde9fd

      I tried uninstalling and re-installing Photoshop, and then the entire CC photography suite. I've got plenty of memory and plenty of disk space.
