Photoshop: CS6 Layer style on group program errors (win 7 64bit)

Photoshop CS6: applying a layer style (stroke and shadow) to the group layer will cause the program to get Program Errors when doing just about any operation e.g. Saving, Merging visible, or Flattening; flattening the group and applying the layer style works ok. Using Photoshop CS6 x64 on a Windows 7 x64 system

Something is odd - because other people are not seeing that.

Can you post your Help -> System Info log?

Does seem to be something unique to what I am doing as similar actions do not cause these errors; tried the same failing scenario on a notebook running PS CS6 x32 and it fails in the same way; following is the System Info log:

Most of that looks ok, though you aren't using the GPU features because your video card driver crashed. You might want to update the driver.

Have you tried disabling your third party plugins?

Still fails disabling the plug-ins; also the video card has the latest driver installed (NVIDIA v 296.10); for what it's worth the system does not get the GPU error when running on PS CS5 x64.

CS6 is better about catching GPU errors, and uses more GPU features than CS5 did.

If that's the latest driver from NVidia's web site, then you need to report that problem to NVidia so they can fix the driver.

OK, can you look in the Photoshop CS6 preferences folder for the file "PSErrorLog.txt" and post the contents here? That may tell us where the program errors are coming from.

Looks like there is a newer driver for the 560 here:

Interesting enough, there is no "PSErrorLog.txt" file in the folder Photoshop CS6 Settings after getting the error.

That's odd - that file should be created or appended to whenever you get a program error.

Interesting enough, when I make the group a smart object and apply the layer effects (stroke and shadow), it all works ok!
