    Photoshop 7.0 will not open


    Hey folks,

    k, here's a new one for me. as of this morning, photoshop won't open. the opening screen pops up while it loads plugins etc., but then it just dies and goes away.

    i've reinstalled it, same deal.

    other adobe applications seem to run fine (audition, imageready), but no dice for PS.

    i've run a disk repair from the recovery console, and an anti-virus scan in safe mode, but still the same thing.

    any thoughts?

    thanks.

    Reset your preferences file.
    Do a Ctrl-Alt-Shift while loading PS.
    F1 and Google are your friends
    This one might help too

    yeah, turns out by renaming the prefs file, then reloading the program, that worked.

    thanks!
