Photoshop won't run! Hope me? [More:]Whenever I try to run photoshop, it gets to the stage of registering plugins, then, poof! it vanishes. I tried uninstalling and re-installing, but no dice. There's plenty of space free for virtual memory on /c (nearly 12 gigs to be exact) so all of the obvious fixes have been tried. Any ideas?

Deprived of the ability to 'shop goatse hands onto any and all round-ish objects, I will whither and die!
oh, btw, I'm running Photoshop 7 on Win2k pro

I suggest crayons and colored pencils.

Try this, maybe?

You might have font issues. Have you installed any new fonts lately?

Maybe check that after running the uninstaller, that there's no remaining remnants of some broken plug-in hanging around in \Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop or \Program Files\Common Files\Adobe or any of the other three thousand places this program puts its grubby paws.

P&C: I don't even have a "C:\\Documents And Settings\\YOURUSERNAME\\Application Data" directory. Could it be that it's an XP directory that doesn't exist in 2k?

Signal: I haven't installed shit on this machine in ages.

Rhomboid: I'll give that a try when I try uninstalling again.

pie, win2K has to have C:\\Documents And Settings\\YOURUSERNAME\\Application Data directory. If it does not, you may have more problems than just the one with Photoshop.

Your Application Data folder is probably hidden. Go to any folder window and click Tools from the menu, select "Folder Options", click the View tab, and make sure the radio button for "show hidden files and folders" is selected. Click OK to all this nonsense and go trolling to "C:\documents and settings\username\application data" (which will now be there, but slightly grayed out).

The problem has been completely by-passed: I installed CS2 and it works great!
