Yes, you need to reinstall your third party plugins for CC 2014, your third party plugins are not copied between versions because they can have dependencies (libraries in other places).

You will also need to download any panels that are updated to work with CC 2014. Note that Photoshop CC 2014 no longer supports Flash panels, so only HTML panels will work in Photoshop CC 2014.

I got my third party plug ins but not my extensions including Adobe's texture panel, which is not a third spry plug-in. And I installed, uninstalled reinstalled my extensions and the extension panel is still greyed out.

Did you update your panels/extensions for CC 2014 -- the old Flash panels won't work in CC 2014.

You have to install extensions that are compatible with CC 2014, and many of your older extensions are not compatible, but might have been updated recently to be compatible.

I'd love to have a link of exactly where to find these new extensions. The term, 'If it's not broken, don't fix it' springs to mind!!!

Hi Martin,this is the link you should use to download new extensions.
I personally only download Adobe Kuler.Paper texture pro not working in new Ps cc2014.I also copy-paste all my plug-ins[nik software,topaz etc] and they work just fine!

So all that time I spent building a solid panel in Configurator for PS CC is now worthless because it's Flash? There has to be a way to easily convert this Panel Extension into HTML5 right? Please don't tell me I have to build it all over again! This is just insane. Please help....
