PHOTOSHOP: Need for Java SE 6 runtime for OS X 10.10 is requested. No Java works!

"An unexpected and unrecoverable problem has occurred. Photoshop will now exit." This is the error reading when Photoshop is attempting to open. Before Yosemite yesterday, it would. After Yosemite the error is given. What can be done???

No, you don't need Java at all to run Photoshop.
Some old (CS3 to CS5) installers used Java, but none of the recent ones do.

First, we need more details:
What version of Photoshop?
What are the exact error messages?
Did you migrate the apps from another volume or machine?

I've got the same problem after I upgraded to Yosemite yesterday. I installed Java8 and still no success, maybe because that is not needed. I can run DW and ID today after upgrading. But there is something that isn't working with PS.

Again, Photoshop does not use Java in any way. Installing or upgrading Java won't help when Photoshop does not use Java in any way.

Is Photoshop crashing? Can we see the detailed crash report?
