Vista Adobe Crash

  fpg 23:08 04 Dec 2007

Vista Home Premium crashes Blue S O Death after install of Photoshop Elements 6.
PC has Intel Quad Core and Geforce 8800 graphics.

Is the problem with Adobe/Vista or Adobe/Quad Core?

Any hints or ideas?

Because it is a new PC which is in serious trouble (unseable except in Safe Mode) I am not sure which element is conflicting with Vista Home Premium.
Is anyone here using Abobe Elements OK with Vista?

Photoshop Elements 6 is compatible with Vista. As long as your processor is powerful enough it will not be effected by Elements.

Suggest you uninstall it and try again.

I use Adobe products Photoshop & Lightroom neither of these give me problems on my Vista Ultimate PC, but have a look at at this Adobe PDF click here

My guess is that your problems have nothing to do with Adobe.

I run Elements 5 as well Photoshop 6, 7 and CS2 on Vista without a single issue with any of them.

Ifg you can only run in Safe Mode, which is an impossible situation, I would try the obvious first, remove Elements and run System Restore from a point prior to installing. These tasks should be possible in Safe Mode.

If the problem goes away, then it does become very curious.

I also have a new machine with duo-core intel processor and a less powerful graphics card to yours.

I installed Elements 6 and had no trouble, however I did install some software which came with the mobo (desktop utilities)and got the bsod on reboot.

As I said at the time I never once had this in all the years running XP. I don't think Vista is as stable yet!

As suggested above try uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe.

Thanks for feedback all. Glad that Adobe isnt the culprit 'cos this new PC is for photo and video editing.

I have tried some of the above and did get a good restore which was killed when I installed P S Elements 6. I think my next step is to reinstall VISTA. (I agree Vista makes XP appear to be the more stable O/S )

Vista "Repair" did not work so I did a complete Visa (re)install. This solved the apparent conflicts - all the Adobe programs have been used extensively and have worked well.
The only downside with this solution is the re-installing of all the programs needed to work through Vista the O/S. But this took less time than guessing (wrongly)where the problem was and searchjng the Web for solutions to a false diagnosis. So what was the cause? I don't know, but there were some programs on the HDD which came with the new PC which I have not re-installed - they were 30 day trials etc -- beware of false gifts.
