I've just installed CC2015 (windows 8) and I can't modify dynamic objects anymore from photoshop to illustrator. Photoshop says he can't launch illustrator. I've got works to deliver. Please fix it quickly.

Photoshop calls the OS to launch the application associated with .ai files.
If the OS does not know how to launch Illustrator - then, well, it can't launch Illustrator.

Glad to hear that you sorted it out.

I've just installed Photoshop 2015 CC and Illustrator 2015 CC. Now when I try open a vector smart object in photoshop I get this message:

could not edit original smart object because the application which created the smart object could not be launched

Can't find a fix for this on the internet, apparently corrupted registry entries but no indication of which registry entries they are and how to fix.

Open any .ai file from your OS explorer with Illustratrator CC2015 and then your OS will record that .ai now open with it. After that you should be able to open smart object from photoshop.
