"Could not complete your request because of a program error." popups up when I try and File -> Open. The Open dialog does not open. My only work around has been to close and re-open photoshop (so often!).

2012 Mac Air OS, 10.10.2, Photoshop 2014.2.2 (20141204.r.310 x64). This did not happen before I updated photoshop.

If I open like 10 files when I first open photoshop it's ok, but then when I forget I need one more file, I see this error, the programs only been open 15mins, I've barely done anything to trigger a program error! I have to close and reopen everything. Making a new file is possible. Dragging a file into a blank photoshop with nothing open does open a file. I can open recent files.

I updated to photoshop 2014.2.2 like a week ago, this message has appeared almost everytime I've left photoshop open for a while and try to open a message.
