Default Photoshop Generator Problem

Iím having a problem I hope you can help me with. Iíve tried following Photoshopís cure to no avail. When I try to send a photo from Lightroom to Photoshop Photoshop opens, then I get an error message saying ďThere is a problem with Generator. Please quit Photoshop and try again. If the problem persists, remove any third-party plug-ins or try reinstalling Photoshop. Any ideas?

Ever figure this one out? I've never seen that before, so no idea.... Wonder what file you are editing in Lightroom and what you are passing to PS.... I assume latest version of both....

FDISK - FORMAT - REINSTALL WINDOWS. Just kidding... BUT, that would likely fix it.. along with every other problem your not knowing about! HA HA!

Let us know when you figure it out, Im curious.

Maybe you are missing a folder, because of a bad install or something else happened (permissions maybe). Anyway, not sure you have a PC or Mac...

Manually create the proper log folder so that Photoshop may be able to create the necessary log files. Create a folder named "Adobe Photoshop [Version]" (like "Adobe Photoshop CC 2017") in the following location:

Windows: C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\
Mac OS: /Users/[Your User Name]/Library/Logs/Adobe/

By the way, the Windows AppData and Mac Library folders are hidden by default so maybe this will help...

Windows: Go to Control panel, then Appearance, then Folder Options, then "Show hidden files/folders"

Mac OS: In Finder, click on Go, then "Go to Folder" and type in "~/Library", then continue above

Oh yeah, if you do that, then open Photoshop by itself first and verify it loads. Then close it and try Lightroom the way you were.

I went into "Folder Options" and clicked show hidden files & folders, then went into windows explorer went to "User". There were three subfolders Admin, Public, and Default. There was no Appdata folder. There was Appdata in the "Admin" subfolder I tried using that to no avail. I really didn't expect it to work as it's not the right path, but I don't know what else to try.

I assume you login as Admin? Usually one there with your name, like "Robert"... anyway, under that there should be an AppData folder. If not, maybe you have bigger problems.

With Windows a clean reinstall of Photoshop can often help however you need to do a complete uninstall. Not just the install app, but clean the registry of Photoshop related script.
