    Photoshop CS5 Process still working

    samuelmarfer

      Hi, i've downloaded the trial of Photoshop CS5 extended, and installed it normally, but when i close the photoshop, with CTRL + Q or ALT + F4, apparently the application closes, but if i use process utility like Process Explorer, i've see that te process of photoshop.exe still running, and also it's consumming the 25% of the CPU usage, supposedly  when I close the program with any of the traditional methods, it is  assumed that the process should be end the photosho.exe, but  not so, why?

          Strange , it quits the process immediately for me , which OS you are using. Have you confirmed that application is not waiting for any response from you like saving etc.

              Either it's terminated or it isn't. Closing a window and terminating an app are two different things. The process still lingering would indicate that it is crashing on exit, which could depend on a specific driver on your system getting in the way or PS not correctly handling things like the licensing service...

                I experience this problem also. When closing the PSCS5 window, I notice the process is still running. Starting PS again starts a new process, and so on.

                What I have notices that is very strange, and assures me it is not a driver bug, but a bug on Adobe's side, is that if I select File -> Exit, the process closes perfectly fine.

                 

                Please fix this!

                 

                I am using Windows 7 64-bit.

                  I have seen Photoshop.exe hang around after the window is closed as well.  I am also on Windows 7 x64.

                      Hi,

                       

                      I can observe the same problem occuring randomly with CS5 (12.0.1) under XP SP3. I just made a quick test a few minutes ago:

                       

                      1. Launched PS

                      2. Immediately closed the main window (but this can also happen after a "real" editing session).

                      3. The Task Manager showed that photoshop.exe was still loaded and using 106 752 K.

                      4. amt3.log was locked.

                      5. photoshop.exe must then be killed. If I launch PS again, a new instance is created and the previous one remains in memory. The new instance may or may not also stay in memory after closing the main window.

                       

                      Of course, if the user is not aware of this, doesn't kill the ghost process and starts PS multiple times during a Windows session, memory can quickly be exhausted.

                       

                      Below are the contents of amt3.log and swtag.log (I had deleted them before making the test).

                          Never mind. This information is aimed at any developer from Adobe who could possibly give a look at this thread. I have sent a bug report anyway.

                            Hi,

                             

                            Attn: Users having this problem

                             

                            Could you please list all the plugins that you are using? Maybe there's a plugin preventing PS from shutting down properly? At least, if we don't have at least one plugin in common, this would mean that it's a PS problem. If we have a plugin in common and if the problem disappears when we disable it, we'll have found the culprit.

                             

                            I'm using the following plugins:

                             

                            Nik Software Silver Efex

                            Photokit Sharpener
                            FocalBlade

                            DxO plugins

                            Noise Ninja

                            Photomatix

                            Noiseware

                            Epson Print plugin

                            PowerRetouche Golden Section

                            Topaz Adjust

                             

                             

                            Thanks.

                              No plugin at all for Photoshop CS5

                               

                              as for PRemiere Pro CS5, it's was staying in the process even before I installed some plugin.

                                Thanks. So it's now clear that it's a PS problem.

                                  I see a "stuck" Photoshop.exe (32 or 64 bit) process only very occasionally.

                                   

                                  I do not have any of your plugins.  I do have these:

                                   

                                  64 bit:

                                  • My own plugins under development

                                   

                                  I am sure that on rare occasion I have seen the Photoshop process hang around after simply opening Photoshop, checking a preference (or taking a screen shot of a dialog), canceling, then closing it.  I often do this kind of thing to support posts on this forum.

                                   

                                  It's infrequent enough that when I have thought to look for the process it isn't stuck.  At some point after the system's been running for days I might be doing some debugging, go to attach to a process with Visual Studio, and find several Photoshop.exes in the list of process choices.

                                   

                                  It seems to be happening less lately than in prior months.  Notably I have updated to Photoshop 12.0.1 and the most recent video drivers from ATI, and of course the Microsoft Windows 7 Updates as they roll them out.

                                   

                                  I've never seen a version of Photoshop prior to CS5 do this before, and I have used Photoshop since the 1990s daily.

                                    I just checked here and it closes in processess immediately. One caveat: Defrag (CC cleaner version) is running at the moment.

                                      Beware: the problem appears randomly. So you should check in the Task Manager each time you exit (until the problem is fixed).

                                        I just checked CS3 and CS5 on XP Sp3. That shows no problem either.

                                         

                                        I will monitor this on Win7 but not too likely on XP. IIRC, if PS or Bridge hangs during Exit then you attempt to restart it, you get a message that it is already running. Can't be 100% sure for Adobe but I know it's true for Firefox even though multiple windows can be invoked.

                                         

                                        Has Adobe verified it as a bug?

                                          I am not Adobe, but I can verify it's a bug.

                                           

                                          Somewhere around here is a post where I screen grabbed Task Manager with several of them running.  Their existence does not stop you from starting a fresh one...

                                              Chris, if I should see it happen again - and as I mentioned it seems to be getting more rare - did you determine whether there's more I can dig out about what's gone wrong?  I can stop Photoshop in the debugger (as I have done before) or anything else you need, providing I have the tools.

                                                Stopping in the debugger might give some idea what module you're in, but Photoshop doesn't ship with symbols - so you won't be able to get much.

                                                 

                                                And no, I don't think there's much more info you could get -- unless you figure out how to reproduce it :-).

                                                  I'll watch for it.  Somewhere in my heart of hearts I somehow suspect the drivers' implementation of OpenGL is at fault.

                                                   

                                                  Lately I'm just allowing my 32 bit Photoshop to run with OpenGL disabled, until such time as AMD releases new drivers that make Photoshop happy at startup.  That could explain why I'm seeing fewer of the 32 bit Photoshop.exe files hanging around than before, when I was forcing Photoshop 32 bit to use OpenGL via the registry tweak.

                                                   

                                                  For 64 bit Photoshop, which I use most often, OpenGL is enabled in Normal mode, but I don't think I ever saw as many of those get "stuck" on exit as with the 32 bit executable.

                                                   

                                                  Did you ever get to the bottom of the "DDE Server" fault on Photoshop exit?

                                                    Premier Pro is implicated as well, but in my trial run, I never experienced the problem either. Same with Audition. I also held all three open and variously minimized and still it ran fine. No running out of memory. Of course, maybe I wasn't pushing it hard enough...nah! Pr pushed memory real good!

                                                      Not in that case. When preventing multiple instances of a given application to run simultaneously, the message (if any) always comes from the application itself, not from Windows. There are many methods to do that. None is 100% foolproof. There's obviously such a mechanism in PS since I can't launch multiple instances of the application (unless the problem occurs). But there's no  warning message in that case. The second instance just exits.

                                                       

                                                      In our case, PS might have already released the objects used to control the creation of a new instance (which can give to the developers an information about where the program hangs).

                                                        My recollections aren't too good any more.
