LR4 is setup to export and open a photo in PSE11. Problem is that it creates the jpeg and then starts PSE11 but the jpg is never loaded by PSE11. I just get a blank work space. From that point I need to search for the image which kind of defeats the whole purpose. I never have a problem with CS5 but then I had issues with PSE10. It would go through the process and open PSE10 with the image however once I exited and went back to LR and then attempted to go back to PSE10 it failed unless I exited LR.

If I open PSE11 prior to exporting from LR4 the image is passed but not if PSE11 is closed. Don't have a problem with CS5.

I am running Windows 7.

Did you update to 4.2 or still on 4.0?

Version 4.2. It turns out that I was pointing to the wrong executable. Now that it is pointing to PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe it works like it should.
