I launched PS (Trial version) in Windows 7 - 64 bit.
Get error msg "Can't complete command as Photoshop cannot find java script plug-in".
I do not have the "ScriptSupport" file in PS system/plug-in file.
Please help??

Only third party plugins go in the Plug-Ins folder.
The scripting support plugin and other required plugins are inside the Required folder.

Then it should be loading.

Check Help -> System Info to see what plugins Photoshop is seeing and loading. There's a chance you aren't running the copy of Photoshop that you think you are, and that second copy doesn't have the plugins.

OK, then you need to check for anti-virus or other utilities that might be interfering with plugin loading.

And check Help->System Info to see what Photoshop knows about the plugins.

Should I disconnect the anti-virus (Kaspersky)?
How can I check for utilities that might be interfering?

You're loading most of the plugin, but not Scripting Support.

Yes, you should try disabling your antivirus software and see if that solves the problem.

I had a similar problem with Photoshop CC 2015. At start-up, Photoshop suddenly started to complain it could not find javascript plug-in, and although the program opened, all commands requiring scripting support (that's many) stopped working.

I checked the plug-in folders ('Required' folder and 'Plug-Ins' folder under 'Adobe Photoshop CC 2015') and found the scripting support file (ScriptingSupport.8li) in Required -> Plug-Ins -> Extensions folder - where it's supposed to be.

I copied the file to Required -> Plug-Ins folder (one folder up) and to the Plug-Ins folder and then restarted Photoshop. The problem just disappeared.

Note: When I checked the registry, I found reference to the 'Plug-Ins' folder only - not to the 'Extensions' folder. Copying the file to where it is referenced is safer than changing the registry values.
