    Camera Raw x64 Crashes on Windows 8 Developer Preview

    Noel Carboni Community Member

      Not sure if this can help anyone at Adobe, but an attempt to run Photoshop CS5.1 and Camera Raw 6.5 on the Windows 8 Developer Preview pre-release nets a crash with the 64 bit code only.  The dialog does not come up, though the thumbnail does show up in the File - Open dialog.

       

      Faulting application name: Photoshop.exe, version: 12.1.0.0, time stamp: 0x4d90d339

      Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.2.8102.0, time stamp: 0x4e546695

      Exception code: 0xc0000409

      Fault offset: 0x000000000005a9aa

      Faulting process id: 0xdb4

      Faulting application start time: 0x01cc807947cbc594

      Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe

      Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll

      Report Id: baf46d3d-ec6c-11e0-be5f-000c29b1217b

      Faulting package full name:

      Faulting package-relative application ID:

       

      This is easily reproducible - just try to open a Canon EOS-40D .CR2 file.

       

       

      I am running the software on a 64 bit VMware Workstation 8 virtual machine with the VMware SVGA display driver.  Photoshop CS5.1 otherwise seems to work fine.

       

      The 32 bit Camera Raw implementation does not crash and properly delivers an image into Photoshop after the dialog is completed.

          More information:  Running Photoshop CS5.1 x64 in compatibility mode for Windows 7 does not correct the problem.

           

          The Windows 8 Program Compatibility Troubleshooter didn't shoot any troubles.

           

          For what it's worth 6.4.1 crashed in this same fashion under the same conditions.

            Same issue! I've also tryed with .NEF files...

             

            But... My dad says that before I've installed this codec (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/it-it/details.aspx?familyid=a0ac689f-9bad-46be-ae8d-550 cb9ba5430) all worked fine. He has only the 64-Bit version of PS and I'm sure that he has opened some RAW pics without issue before I installed the above package... :S

            I've also tryed a system restore and to reinstall PS 64-Bit, with no lucky... ç_ç

              I have not installed that particular codec pack, so it is not that simple.

               

              It's not unreasonable that applications might not work perfectly on a pre-beta operating system.  But I felt it was a good idea to let Adobe know about this, since Microsoft has a tradition of not changing things very much after such a release to the public, and Adobe might want to be looking at why it happens so when Windows 8 actually does release their software works properly with it.

                Sorry for delay. I know it from experiments

                AFAIK Adobe knows it as well.

                Use PS 32b version (from Program Files (86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5 folder) and install LR 3.5 32b on 64b Win8DP.

                They work.

                And wait for next CS/LR update/upgrade or Win8 Beta.

                  I just want to mention one thing to readers of this thread: 

                   

                  At this point, I strongly advise against using the Windows 8 Developer Preview for anything other than testing in a "throwaway" environment to become familiar with the product or to begin to develop Windows 8 Metro apps.  It's NOT suitable for production use where critical data is involved, and it WILL expire. 

                   

                  Most notably, based on past experience with Microsoft betas, it's almost certain you will never be able to upgrade it to the released version, meaning whatever you do WILL have to be thrown away and a fresh install done sooner or later.

                    This is still a problem with the Camera Raw 6.6 release candidate by the way...

                      Yes, you will not upgrade from Developer Preview to Windows 8 Beta. (source: friend in Microsoft Windows Dev Team)... :-(

                        There is some missing information, especially from Noel Carboni, as to what will work and will not...

                         

                        Let's go down the list....

                         

                        1. Running Photoshop CS5.1 x64 in compatibility mode for Windows 7 does not correct the problem.
                          The Windows 8 Program Compatibility Troubleshooter didn't shoot any troubles.
                          For what it's worth 6.4.1 crashed in this same fashion under the same conditions.
                          -Noel

                          PS CS5.1 64-bit version works under Win8 DP quite correctly, as follows:

                        It is also beyond question that any pre-beta, or beta version of a paid operating system will never be given a direct upgrade path to the final, retail version. That has always been the case and always will be so. I know (at least in part) because I was a beta tester for Windows 98.

                         

                        The same settings trick as above also removes the 30-day trial countdown dialog in LR 3.5.... Stick with complaining about why Office 2010 CTR fails in Win8 DP.... there is a waste of time worth noting!

                          Actually, what was crashing before now appears to work okay for me even without the compatibility settings you have shown above. 

                           

                          I'm guessing either Microsoft fixed something and delivered the fix via Windows Update, or the display driver I had before, part of VMware 8 and which was recently updated, was the problem.

                           

                          And of course the Windows 8 Developer Preview is pre-beta.  What I was trying to do with this thread is give the Adobe developers a heads-up in case it was their problem.  Looks like it wasn't in this case.  Thanks for your follow-up, ZenZenPup.

                            Aw foo, even though I was able to open a raw image above, I tried it again and it crashed again.

                             

                            So no, it still does not work quite correctly.  It's intermittent.  I suggest you try more files, and try a Canon 5D Mark II raw file, specifically.
