I am having a problem in photoshop cs while opening itself. While the splash screen with loading messages are being displayed, CS gets hanged without any response(Specifically when the loading message reads"Reading global text resources". Can any one help me?
I am not quite sure exactly what is wrong, but here are a couple suggestions.
If it previously worked and no longer does, attempt a re-install. If this doesn't work it may be in some way due to software that you have recently installed (unlikely).
If it has never worked the copy may be corrupt and/or didn't get correctly installed, try contacting some type of customer support from Adobe about this.
The only other possibilty is that your computer can not handle loading the program and is crashing. The few times that Photoshop caused a similar hanging problem for me, a re-install was able to fix it.
I am having the same issue with photoshop cs2
I deleted the 'new doc sizes.psp' file and photoshop still will not start back up
I even tried to run a repair - but creative suite isn't giving my that option
I still cannot find the dir "C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\8.0\Adobe Photoshop CS Settings" (or is it because I have uninstalled photoshop and deleted the preference files with them) but after I have uninstall the photoshop+preference files and re install them again, it still does not work. I have lost my "C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\8.0\Adobe Photoshop CS Settings" too !!!!
To find the folder you will have to enable the viewing of Hidden Files and Folders in you tools and folder options. I had to delete all of the files in this folder to get it to work. Warning this will erase any presets, actions, color settings, etc. you may have. But atleast it works. :-)
