Photoshop CC 2018: An integer between 96 and 8 is required. Closest value inserted. "Could not complete your request because there is not enough memory (RAM)"

Photoshop has become suddenly unusable. Almost every tool gives me an "Out of memory (RAM)" error and when I try to open the Performace pane I get the error in the title. I cannot get inside the settings, as this error keeps on popping up. I tried everything (reinstalling PS, deleting everything (including preferences), updating PS, updating Windows 10, switching to the latest Insider Preview). Nothing fixes this error.

Hi all,

We've release an update to Photoshop CC, version 19.1.5, which includes a fix to this issue. 

To update Photoshop CC to 19.1.5, click "Update" in the Creative Cloud desktop app next to Photoshop CC.
More detailed instructions for updating


Note!! After Updating, to allow Photoshop to manage memory, remove the Registry key you added for 19.1.4:

If you were using Photoshop CC 2018 (19.1.4) and added the Registry entry to fix the Invalid Numeric Entry issue, you’ll want to remove that registry key after installing this 19.1.5 update.
More info on what to do here

If you would like assistance removing this Registry key, please Contact Support.
