Check the Windows system event viewer to see the details of the crash.
We especially need the name of the faulting module (which is usually a video card driver).

Thank you all for the input but no luck here at all. Yes I also did uninstall, reinstalled and updated the drivers but still nothing. Oh and I got a little help from Adobe too, Something similar did happened when earlier Photoshop was available and did not get it fix until a few weeks later. Again Thank you all

This fix failed for me as well. I was able to get the right driver for my ATI video card installed but Photoshop continues to behave the same way with the same error message. I certainly hope that there is some resolution in the near future.

Thanks to you too Alex.

I am having precisely the same issue. I too updated my driver. I paid for this program; it needs to run. It has been weeks since I purchased it, and I have not been able to use it.

Thanks Chris, I was able to to chat with a tech from Nvidia and he walked me through a clean re-install of my drivers. Works great now. Phew. Your reply was speedy and helpful. I was in a panic.

For many users, updating the video card drivers does not work. The only real solution seems to be going into the directory where the adobe photoshop cc "exe" file is located and renaming the file "sniffer.exe" to "_sniffer.exe" This bypasses the graphics card test completely. No more fighting with drivers. If any Adobe employees are still watching this thread, I just wanted to point out something: A lot of the "official" responses have been something to the effect of "Not our problem. Contact your graphics card vendor." See, here's the thing: I have a lot of software on my computer that runs just fine and I've never had to contact my graphics card vendor for any of them. Nope, not even once. Could you please stop making excuses for sloppy coding and just fix it? Please? It's been a known issue for over nine months. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!!

This bypasses the graphics card test completely. Photoshop should run fine after this. No more fighting with drivers. Problem solved.

Despite this issue is closed, I want to add that problem regarding graphics card unknown update has reduced our productivity to 70% during 3 months.
In my company, this means thousands of dollars, time, and lack of responsibility from graphics card manufacturers but also from Adobe.

If Adobe just can't protect its costumers and if wants to protect its own image, it should have had in time warn to costumers.

The motivation of my team was reduced a lot due to this.
I don't see why we shouldn't be compensated regarding what we pay on CC licences.
Adobe has the strength I clients don't have to deal with video card manufacturers.
