Probably because some components are missing and you need to reinstall the application (or restore from backup) to get the missing components put back where they belong.

Really, the error messages are there for a reason, and tend to mean what they say.

It would also help to know the exact error message you're seeing and what OS you're using.

It could possibly be this issue:

Error: "One or more files in the Adobe Application Support folder... are missing" when you start Photoshop (Mac OS): http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/e...
