When double-clicking on a jpeg image attached to an Outlook 2010 message, CS5.1 opened the file immediately, but CS6 gives an error: the error window says "Microsoft C++ Runtime library" and the message says "R6034" and below that says "An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly. Please contact the application's support team for more information."

Solution Found:

Just after installing Photoshop CS6 Extended I installed several Microsoft updates that included several C++ libraries. Then CS6 would not work.

I then uninstalled CS6 Extended and restored my pc using a restore point made before the MS updates were installed. After reinstalling CS6 (without the MS C++ updates), CS6 now works perfectly. Beware of the latest MS updates!

Open photoshop.
Go to Edit > Preferences > Plug-ins
With the Preferences Window open go to the Plug-ins section, uncheck everything that has a check in it here and restart PS.
Opened fine for me.
