When I click it, I get the little circle for about 2 seconds, then it goes away. Nothing else.
I tried control clicking, with the same results.
I had task manager open while clicking on it, and it never shows up under the "applications" tab. Under the "processes" tab, when I click on it, it appears for about 2 to 10 seconds, then disappears. Shows 00 cpu, and 9,512K of memory being used.
I had previously created a new user account, which was a solution of sorts, but it meant that I would need to port all my files and folders across and I really didn't know where to start with that task, so I just kept the two users going - bit of a pain, but it worked.
Anyway, once I'd established that the updates meant that Bridge worked on my original user account, I've now deleted the second account (after backing up the few files that I wanted to keep) and everything is back to normal.
Thank you Adobe! I'm one very happy CS6 user now :)
I've been redirected here from Jeffrey Tranberry's blog. I’ve just installed Photoshop CS6 (64bit). Adobe Bridge will not open – I’ve rebooted the pc, to no effect. When I go to File, Browse in Bridge, all I get is the ‘circle’ rotating for about 2 secs, then it stops and nothing happens. If I select Browse in Mini Bridge, the bottom panel opens and “Waiting for Bridge CS6...” appears with no further progress. I can't launch Bridge from Photoshop, nor can I open it independently outside of Photoshop. Any help please?)
when i try this-
1. Find the folder C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Bridge CS6
2. If you have import settings in Bridge, please back up this folder. Then delete all the stuff in this folder.
3. Launch Bridge again.
the only path i find is C:\Users\[your user name] then no AppData, i need help.

Issue Resolved !
After using the Photoshop standard uninstall procedure followed by the Adobe CC cleaner* for CC and CS6, I did a reinstall of Photoshop CS6, but Bridge still did not open - although it took longer for the hour-glass to cut out. Today I found a patch** to update Bridge and unzipped it and installed. Double clicked on Bridge and it opened immediately. This worked for me, and is worth trying, but of course it may not work for everyone. Best of luck - this has been an issue for some time, but only for a small minority of users.
