Photoshop CS6: Contactsheet "JavaScript code was missing"

Hi there,

I have a MacPro Os 10.6.8 up to date so it's totally compatible with the upgrade.Run on 64bit of course.

I upgraded from CS3 to CS6.
When trying to do a contact sheet with Photoshop (not bridge), an error window pop up saying "JavaScript code was missing".

Adobe help center is saying it's a Mac problem...
I know if I call Apple they'll say it's an Adobe problem...

Anyone any idea ?

THANK YOU ALL :)

Sounds like you're missing some files (deleted or moved after installing), or you accidentally copied scripts from another version of Photoshop.

Thank you Chris,
the thing is I did not touch anything. I even uninstalled CS6 and re-installed it but nothing changed. it was even worst because I had the same error message (javascript was missing) when I opened Photoshop.
After doing some updates from Adobe , this error was fixed but unfortunately not for the contact sheet.
Is it possible that this automate will run in 32 bit Mac not a 64 bit?

Scripts don't care about the addressing mode, and Photoshop CS6 on MacOS only has a 64 bit mode (32 bit is gone).

What is the full error message that you receive?

I also have this problem - downloaded CS6 from Creative Cloud, reinstalled several times. The scripts seem to be in the correct folder. It doesn't seem that Adobe knows what this is about, after an online help chat, they suggested creating a new account on the Mac, as it "Might be a permissions problem." Nope, that didn't work, either. Everything still seems to work on CS4. This is frustrating!

Either you're missing files, or you copied scripts from a previous version of Photoshop and now the scripts are mixed up.

Again, what is the full, exact error message you receive?
