    Photoshop CC 2018 - generator issue still not resolved, please help

    jrahn88 Level 1

      Hello,

      Whenever I open photoshop or go to export my work, i'm greeted with the "There is a problem with Generator. Please quit Photoshop and try again. If the problem persists, remove any third-party plug-ins or try to reinstalling Photoshop." Any help would be greatly appreciated, since PS is unusable at this point.

       

      I've tried the two official solutions to get this resolved, but neither seemed to work. I've tried assigning full permissions to the adobe and photoshop folder in my profile, program directories, Just deleting the folders in my profile, deleting my profile and reinstalling PS, deleting my profile and adding user to the administrator group then installing PS, Running the cleanup tool and reloading PS and finally last week I thought reloading windows 10 would finally fix this issue, but it didn't.

       

      I can uncheck the Generator plugin and that only makes the dialog go away until the next time I try and export. When i do finally do an export, I get the error message and it just sits processing and can never actually export my work. Is there any way to just force disable generator? I'm running windows 10 x64 (1709) and photoshop 2018 (19.0.1), but i've had this issue for sometime. Let me know if there is any additional info or logs that I can add or something I could try to get these images exported.

       

      This is the error I see in the generator_laest log:

      warning:crema 09:34:24.360 C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2018\Required\Plug-Ins\Generator\crema.generate\lib\file-utils\index.js:73:28] Unable to move file.

      Here is some output from generator_1:
