I am having the exact same issue, running CS4 on Windows 7 64-bit.
Does anyone have any help??
Camera Raw editing requires that a qualifying product has been launched at least once to enable this feature.
I don't have Win7, but I did read that you have to run Photoshop "As Administrator" (via a right-click) at least once, even if you are sole user and administrator.
Thanks, John, but that doesn't work either.
I recently installed CS4 on a Windows 7 64 bit system with no problems. I then applied the latest update which included ACR 5.6. Again, no issues, and I have successfully loaded jpeg's into ACR (open from Bridge). So from an existence theorem point of view it works, and I never had to "Run as Administrator". My system has one user, defined at OS installation, so it has administrative privileges. I have not enabled the built-in Administrator account. And I have applied all W7 updates. Both 32 and 64 bit CS4's are installed, although I have invoked only the 64 bit version.
Perhaps some more info wrt to your system will provide a clue. Otherwise my advice is to completely uninstall and reinstall, although normally I am very reluctant to advise such, in my experience hardly ever works because there is usually some other problem.
Josh- thanks for the input, didn't work for me either! Opening PS or Bridge to "Run As Admin".
Rasworth- I too recently updated to 7 and installed CS4, 64 bit, and applied the latest update to ACR 5.6. I did this same exact thing on my laptop- no issues, but for some reason the desktop has issues, and NOW- won't even open my raw files. Will try some Windows 7 updates and get back to you, but it looks like I am going to be reinstalling CS4 unless someone else has some insight.
Thanks guys for the input!
Acrobat Pro and other Adobe applications starting acting funny, and a friend over in the NAPP Forums suggested it was an activation issue. I never Deactivated my CS4 suite when I updated my Operating System, I didn't think I needed to. I deactivated and then reactivated and all is well in the world of Adobe Suite now!
It will ask if you are sure, say yes. It automatically closes itself out.
Open Photoshop: it will immediately ask you to type in your serial number or continue 30 day trial.
Enter your serial number.
Viola! Everything should work just fine now!
I have tried all of the above ideas and the one given to me by Adobe support and still have the same problem
I cannot open in Camera Raw and I cannot use the "Develop Settings" because that same screen shows up
Hope that somebody finds a solution for this...?????????.
