I have Photoshop 7.0. Installed software for Epson Artisan 837 scanner and now Photoshop will not open. Get error that it has quit while trying to open. Running Mac OS X 10.4.11 Anyone else run into anything similar?
And scanner drivers can cause problems at launch due to bugs in the TWAIN drivers for the scanner. (more recent versions of Photoshop made the TWAIN plugin optional, because so many buggy scanner drivers were crashing Photoshop)
Try disabling the TWAIN plugin in the Photoshop plugins folder - that should let you launch, but means you'll have to scan outside of Photoshop.
It is old, but it's what I got.....so what you gonna do.. Anyway thank you responding. How do I disable the twain plugin, do I need to delete from folder or can I move temporarily or what? Thanx again.
I had the same problem with CS2 and an Epson Artisan 730. PS crashed every time it tried to load the twain drivers. I am so glad I checked here. I was about to give up and uninstall the printer. I too can live with scanning outside of PS. Can't live without my old PowerMac.
