I did the 2015 upgrade yesterday and now bridge doesn't open files unless I right click and select the app. This is the choice I have now?

Double clicking is working for me, and others.

Check the file associations in Bridge - it may be trying to find an older version of the applications.

And that's an Illustrator crash from the GPU sniffer and has nothing to do with Bridge.

You are correct. When I launch an Illustrator file in Bridge it crashed unless I right click on it and select the app. I was under the impression that Bridge was supposed to make it easy to use the Adobe apps together, or at least it has been that way for quite some time.

That crash has nothing to do with Bridge. It's just an issue with the GPU sniffer and Illustrator (and maybe the video drivers on your system).

I posted this on the Photoshop Community board and you asked for a screenshot, resetting file associations didn't work.

The default program is shown as Photoshop. Of which there is only one copy on the hard drive.

Did you install the Bridge 6.1.1 update? If not, go do that now.
Bridge is still looking for Photoshop CC 2014, which you probably removed from your system when you installed CC 2015.

On Windows, it appears to be an installer bug where old registry keys are left in place. Those entries point to versions of Photoshop that have been removed. Fixing all those registry entries fixed the problems I had.

Yeah, we're investigating that registry issue now.

I have bridge and PS CC 2015, which were working fine.  I unloaded a trial copy of Nik/Google filters including Viveza and now I find the same problem with bridge.  Simply opening a file crashes the system, but selecting Open With PS CC 2015 (the default) is fine.  Was there any fix for this problem?

Try disabling your Nik/Google plugins and see if it works.
And do you really mean it crashes your entire system (not just Bridge or Photoshop)?

Yes, I was going to uninstall the plugins.  I tried to install two versions (a cheap viveza that I couldn't actually install so I gave up) and a trial version of the Nik plugin suite.  Only bridge stops working.  Thanks

Well, even after uninstalling all Nik software I could find, bridge still stops on open.  I've now installed the Nik package of plug-ins for PS CC 2015, and Bridge still stops.  Not a deal-breaker since I can specify the default PS to open, but it is a bother.

David Converse: how did you fix the registry entries?  How to identify the entries that need to be removed?  Touching the registry sounds scary.

Got it.  Uninstalled and re-installed bridge and all works as intended.
