    Launching Elements

      Cannot always launch the Elements program. Sometimes only the vertical rectangular taskbar opens (left of page). Must then open an Elements file (previously saved) in order for the complete application to launch.
      Is this common, and how can I correct it?

      Thanks,
      Donna

          Hi
          I have PhotoElements installed on a W2K platform and can only access it if I have admin rights. This PC is shared by others who would also like to use the scanner and this software but when they log in as themselves they get the following error message: "Could not initialize Photoshop Elements becasue the file is locked. Use the Properties command in the Wndows Explorer to unlock this file".
          I have tried giving them "Full Control" rights to "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements" but it still gives the same error. However, if I give them admin rights they can use the program. Does anyone know which other directory or files I should be giving them more rights to? Thanks for any help you can render.

              Yes, wrong forum. Please go to the forum for your product (Photoshop
              Elements?) and create a NEW message. Be sure that your subject line
              describes the problem - please don't use general things like
              "problem". Good luck!
