PSD Shell Extenstion Error (C_PsdRsDll)
Every time after i start up my computer (Windows XP Pro SP2) and right click on an application icon or something similar i receive the following popup message: (see also screenshot)

PSD Shell Extension
Resource file <C_PsdRsDll> not found!


Once i click okay everything works fine, although it is extremely annoying. Any one have any idea what the problem is or most importantly how to fix it?

I didn't have this problem all the time. I think it started few weeks ago.
Some one suggested I delete and reinstall Photoshop, but didn't make any difference.

What is C_PsdRsDll anyway?

Hope some one has an ides!

Thank you!

Hi gopo,
Not sure if you are still having this issue. Most likely not, but here is what I did to fix it.
Run Regedit, browse to: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved], and look in the right hand side window for "PSD Shell Extension", highlight and delete the entire key. Problem gone.

Before deleting anything in the registry, make sure you backup and or export what it is you are deleting. That way if anything goes wrong you can import it back in.

Good luck,
