Hi, I've loaded CS2 onto my PC laptop - I use XP - and all apps work, except for Photoshop. It opens, but as soon as I click anywhere it freezes and I have to end task/not responding.

Included in the report data for the crash are two temporary files:

C:\DOCUME~1\Nat\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER67e2.dir00\Photoshop.exe.mdmp
C:\DOCUME~1\Nat\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER67e2.dir00\appcompat.txt

I've removed and reinstalled, and tried Photoshop on its own rather than the whole suite.

Is this related to having a previous version installed, or trying to reinstall after a failed attempt ie. there are stored files somewhere that I don't know are there?

I can follow the basics, but I'm not overly technical, so any info you can give me without any heavy techie jargon would be much appreciated!

I don't think it's a previous version issue. I had CS installed and installed CS2. When satisfied I deleted CS. I did the same thing going to CS3. You say PS opens? Just a GUESS. After clicking the icon to start PS, press CTRL, Shift and Alt down together. Hold them down until you get a messagebox asking whether to delete the Photoshop settings file. Say yes and see if that changes anything.

Hi - thanks for the response. I tried that, but it didn't make any difference. I'm totally baffled because everything else in the suite works except for PS! The only thing I can relate it to is installing only PS from the suite to start with, then uninstalling and reinstalling the whole suite. Any other brainwaves most welcomed and I'll try to give you all the info you need :)

Cheers,

Nat

ps. I did find something on another forum when I search on the temp file name and there was a lot of discussion about RAIDs - but it lost me!

I don't have any drives set up as RAIDs, so I can't even guess. Are you a NAPP member? There's a huge wealth of Photoshop info there. You have all the updates available for CS2 installed, I guess. I remember a problem something like this with Bridge CS3 until I got all the updates installed.
