Hi you guys,
I have been using Photoshop CS5 for a number of months now, without any problems. Yesterday, just suddenly, Bridge just bombed out. And I mean it crashes completely, not even a spinning ball or a 'stop responding', it just disappears from the screen. The first time the crash generated an Apple Crash Report, as well as an Adobe one. After that, when I click on the Bridge icon, it bounces, no dot appears on the dock under the icon and after a while the icon stops bouncing and another Apple Crash Report gets generated. It does not generate an Adobe crash report because, I suspect, the program does not go far enough.
I have tried the following:
- Option clicked the B Icon - straight to Apple crash report.
- Open B in PS, PS works perfectly and stays operational, but B generates an Apple crash report. I also tried mini B, the dock opens with message "waiting for Bridge", and nothing further happens.
- Checked permissions in my Library for the following, all well:
- Caches/Adobe/Bridge CS5
- Application Support/Adobe/Bridge CS5
- com.adobe.bridge4.plist file
- Verified and repaired permissions in DU, just in case. No luck.
- Created a new user account and tried to open B - straight to Apple crash report.
- Deleted the PLIST file and the items in Cashes (as suggested in another tread) - straight to Apple crash report.
I have not yet tried a reinstall. I upgraded to CS5 from CS3 and I still have it sitting on my hard drive. In a previous thread I asked what to do with CS3 and the consensus was to leave well alone. Everything worked and I did not need the disk space. In fact, Bridge CS3 still opens without a problem. If a reinstall is necessary, how do I go about it then? Do I
- deregister CS3 and CS5 and uninstall and reinstall the whole lot?
- deregister and uninstall and reinstall CS5 only?
- don't deregister and just reinstall the whole lot without uninstalling it first?
- don't deregister and just reinstall CS5 only without uninstalling it first?
And if I have to uninstall, do I have to run one or all of the cleanup utilities of Adobe?
I have also not contacted Adobe help because I have an American copy of Photoshop and live in Europe. That disqualifies me from Adobe support.
Here is my system:
iMac 5 with 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Mac OS X 10.6.6
Adobe CS5 12.0.2
Bridge CS5 184.108.40.206
Thanks in advance!
