    Hi all

    I recently upgraded to tiger (from Panther) and discovered that I could
    no longer load my version of photoshop CS (or Windows media player).

    So i made sure i downloaded all the updates for Tiger, and tried to
    reinstall the version of PS several times to no avail.

    I then deleted all files relating to photoshop that I could find on my
    computer and tried it again with no sucess. I found that windows media
    player was also affected and that the fix for was deleting preferences
    so i deleted those for PS. But PS still did not work.

    I then downloaded the trial of CS2 thinking that a newer version might
    be whats needed but that did not work either.

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get Photoshop working on my
    system again? I think i've looked at every forum post on this subject
    and nothing seems to work.

    The error message I get is : "The Application Photoshop quit
    unexpectedly".

    Upgrading the Mac OS is not that simple. Try Repairing Permissions
    before and after installing any software. Folks on the Adobe Photoshop
    Forum site can give you more info.

  3. You're missing the "Adobe Unit Types" plugin from
    /Library/ScriptingAdditions/

    If you did an archive and install, it will be in the previous system
    folder.

    If it's truly gone, reinstall Photoshop.

    Thanks a lot edjh

    I found what i was looking for on the photoshop forums. I had to get
    rid of the twain plugin which apparently corrupts easily.

    It should be.
    IMHO, Adobe f***d up this one all by their lonesome selves.

    For future reference, when an application crashes like this, your first
    and best way to get a real clue as to what is going wrong is to examine
    the content of the application's crash log. Crash logs are usually
    located in the /Users/you/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/ folder or the
    /Library/Logs/CrashReporter/ folder.

    I'm willing to bet you that the Photoshop crash log would have made
    some mention of the TWAIN plugin, or the fact that it was loading
    plugins at least, just before the crash.

    The easiest way to look at crash logs is in Console, an app in
    /Applications/Utilities.

    Run it, click on 'Logs' and do what comes naturally.
