When I try to open a .DNG or .CR2 file from Bridge or when I try to open Photoshop->Preferences->Camera Raw... I get the following error:
"could not complete your request because of a program error"
and then Photoshop hangs.
If I select Photoshop->About Plug-In->Comera Raw... it says Version 126.96.36.199
Photoshop is version 12.1 x64
Bridge is version 188.8.131.52
OS X is version 10.6.8
I am kind of new to Photoshop so I might have missed something basic.
Thanks for ant help.
I have made a few more observations.
I can actually open Camera Raw if I click the "Open in Camera Raw..." icon i Bridge.
In Camera Raw I can save files as .psd for example, and also open them in Photoshop. I still get the error when I try to open Camera Raw settings.
