For the last 10 days I have been trying everything possible to get my CS6 working properly. The whole story is here:
Well today it's apparently fixed (just one day before I was going to do a full re-install -- WHEW) and the solution was/is ridiculous.
Over the past week my computer developed problems with performance and Explorer (not IE-just Explorer). Then yesterday it corrupted Flash and would not allow updates or re-installs of that.
Finally got my computer ops people involved ion the FLASH problem. After an hour of trying various things with negative results, they tried a hail mary and removed IE 11 and returned me to IE 10. I updated the security in IE 10 and Flash now works as does Explorer.
Just as a desperation move, I tried CS 6 and---- mirabile dictu --- It all works perfectly. CS6 starts quickly, Bridge comes right up and builds criteria quickly, ACR opens for .CR2 files and exports them to CS6 perfectly. All my actions work and the save function is normal.
I get that a browser can mess up Flash but have NO CLUE on this earth why IE 11 should mess up Explorer and less idea why it should have killed CS6. I'm gonna try CS6 later again today and, if it works, it will have been the strangest problem resolution I have ever seen.
