Photoshop CC 2014 hangs on launch for a few minutes before becoming responsive.

  • Problem
  • Updated 3 years ago
I had to reinstall Photoshop CC 2014 because I had both CC and CC'14 installed, I went to uninstall the older version, and like a goober I uninstalled '14. So I removed both before trying to put '14 back on.

Unfortunately, after getting '14 set up again, it is now displaying an odd behavior that didn't exist before. It appears to load perfectly fine, the load screen zips right along as all the modules get processed and then the window comes up, but it doesn't respond to clicks or hotkeys. If I pull another window up in front of it, photoshop will not regain focus and come to the top. Task manager say's photoshop is not responding. About 2 to 3 minutes later it suddenly starts working and everything is fine. Ultimately it ends up being a major annoyance, rather than a major issue, though it does slow down my work flow considerably when switching between applications.

Things I tried:
ctrl+alt+shift to delete settings. Problem persists.
Uninstalling it and reinstalling it again. Problem persists.

I did notice that, despite having selected the option to remove configuration files while uninstalling, photoshop still asks if I want to import settings from a previous version when launching for the first time after reinstalling. This suggests to me that the problem is related to junk in the registry. How can I clean this?

I'm using Windows 7, all updates, on a Dell Precision M4800 with an i7 processor, 16gb of ram, tons of free disk space. Windows Performance Information and Tools, with their scale from 1.0 to 7.9 (who invented that dumb scale, btw?) rates everything except my hard drive transfer rate at or above 7.0... Hard drive transfer rate is only lower, at 5.9, because I opted for a RAID array with traditional disks, instead of $600 SSD's to get similar capacity. So the computer itself is definitely not a bottleneck.

Thanks for the help.

Have you installed any of the Adobe video applications (Premiere, After Effects, etc.) on that system?

Just Premiere.

OK, so it might be related to something we've been investigating, where the video service fails to start, or starts very slowly in some cases due to an issue with the video app installation.

Sounds like the issue might be related to creating font previews. Try going to the Type menu, and select Font Preview Size > None. Then quit and re-launch. Is it still unresponsive for a while after launch?

I also just discovered that Bridge is now failing to load, as well. Clicking the start menu icon causes it to give a critical stop beep and error box. The title bar of message box says, "Error" and the message itself says, "The operation failed to complete." click ok and it closes.

Still unresponsive after setting the font preview size to none.

Going to try reinstalling bridge to see if that fixes it...

Excuse me, the error specifically says "The operation could not be completed."

And it's persistent after reinstalling Bridge.

I didn't reboot in between uninstall/reinstall though. Maybe I need to try that?

Dreamweaver, Premiere and Lightroom all appear to be operating just fine.

Removing Premiere fixed the problem with Photoshop, but Bridge is still failing to load.

Creating a new account does not fix bridge. That seems to work for Mac users with a similar problem, but not for me in Windows 7.

Deleting settings does not work either. It fails before the keys can even be pressed.

I just posted in a similar thread the solution that worked for me, maybe it helps you too:

Looks like I made some progress: I found the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool, I ran it to remove files I didn't know still existed all the way back to CS3. Now Photoshop CC doesn't hang anymore on launch. Go figure!

Console still throws some errors though:

7/18/14 10:57:36.196 AM gkbisd[209]: Unable to collect cdhash for /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2014/Adobe Photoshop CC 2014.app (error code 100024)

I don't understand the first one, but the rest seems to be font related, though I have validated all fonts on my system just yesterday with no errors coming up.

I tried to use the CC Cleaner Tool, but when I follow the instructions, it doesn't see anything except currently installed programs.

Uninstalling Premiere fixed the hang, but that's not really a good solution. It only confirms what Chris Cox said.

The real problem now is that Bridge is not working at all. I guess I should post a different topic about that...

I'm having the exact same problem, but on a Mac. Photoshop launches at its usual speed, but then is completely unresponsive for a couple of minutes. Eventually it comes back happy, but this launch delay is extremely annoying - especially as I am using it to teach college Photoshop classes! Have already deleted my preferences, to no avail. Anyone have any other ideas?

Do you have a lot of fonts installed on this system? Use any font activation plug-ins?

It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Directions for sharing your system info from Photoshop:

If it means anything, it has also just developed a problem where it won't open Quicktime .mov files - I get a message that "Could not complete your request because DynamicLink is not available"

Hi all, on Mac, I solved this issue by remove the folder (it will be recreated at restart of Photoshop):

~/Library/Preferences/Adobe/Photoshop

Hope this helps.

It looks like what you did was indirectly fix a permissions problem in your library folder (by deleting and recreating the log folders that couldn't be written to because of bad permissions on your system).

Thank you Chris, but I've not tried to repair permission...

Tried removing that folder, but it still hangs right after startup. Any other ideas?

Try to move (NOT DELETE) the ~/Library/Preferences folder on desktop and start Photoshop... otherwise, to create a new user and start Photoshop from it.

Let me know...

I have been having this issue for some weeks now. When I start Photoshop CS6 (Mac OS X) it starts up, opens a blank window, then hangs for about a minute. Activity Monitor it says Photoshop is "Not Responding". Then after a minute, it starts responding and everything works fine.

Today I think I accidentally fixed it. I opened QuickTime Player (which I rarely do) and lo and behold! - it hung (beach balled) for a minute just like Photoshop does and then started to behave normally, just as PS also does. Thinking "this is like déjà vu" - I quit QuickTime Player and re-launced it to test if the problem was persistent, but unlike Photoshop it launched normally the second time, and thereafter.

I then launched Photoshop - and voilà! no hang! I have been testing it all day intermittently and it seems for me to have fixed the issue in Photoshop. I am assuming there was a corrupt preference file in QuickTime - that was, for some reason, upsetting Photoshop, and when I relaunched QuickTime, it fixed it's preferences and inadvertently also fixed QuickTime. I have no idea how or why QuickTime Player and Photoshop would be connected - does't make sense to me. Perhaps it's just a coincidence - but because the Photoshop issue has been persistent for weeks, that seems unlikely.

They are loosely connected through the video service that Photoshop starts, via system APIs and come codecs. If something was causing a codec to hang, that would cause a hang in both Photoshop and QuickTime Player.
