I have used CS5.1 on my Late 2008 MBP running Mavericks with no issues. Yesterday, I added an Apple 24" Cinema Display as an external monitor and could not launch CS5.1 unless I unplugged the display. The error is "could not initialize Photoshop because of a program error". I can launch CS5.1, reconnect the display, the image appears but I cannot edit, enlarge the file window but can change editing tools.

It's strange how I can download, install the CC trial and launch the program. I better find my CS5 install disk and reinstall because something is probably missing.
