On install of Photoshop CC (2014) and subsequent uninstall of Photoshop CC:
Adobe Bridge CC lost some Photoshop CC scripts
Adobe Bridge lost the "Photoshop" item on the Tools menu
Problem somewhat resolved by uninstalling/reinstalling Bridge and Photoshop CC (2014) and reinstalling Photoshop CC

The uninstall of Photoshop CC is probably what lost the scripts -- because the same script files are used by Photoshop CC and CC 2014.

Frustrating. Crazy.
I'm giving a big lecture at SRP tomorrow—a HUGE installation base, and this is really going to throw a wrench into Adobe's works, to be sure. So much for selling upgrades to CC.x

There are easy workarounds - uninstall the old version before installing the new one, or just don't uninstall the old version.

The Scripts are THERE. THEY DON'T WORK!
It generates an error message that the script requires the cc version of Photoshop.

Photoshop CC 2014 installs updated scripts that do work with Photoshop CC and CC 2014.

Reinstalled CC, Uninstalled CC2014, REINSTALLED 2014, DIDN'T run the UNINSTALLER on CC. Limbo performed. All well now.

I second this, for me, just uninstalling and re-installing PS CC2014 fixed it.
Well, prior to that, I did reinstall Bridge as well, but I don't think it's an unnecessary step since it didn't do anything.

Well I also uninstalled CC and lost the scripts and was wondering if I can just install those because I am on a slow internet connection with a bandwidth limit and I don't want to download and reinstall.

We don't have the scripts as separate files - they're part of the Photoshop CC 2014 installer. And the uninstall of CC already removed them from your machine.

OK thanks. Then hopefully I can just uninstall 2014 and reinstall it again. I see comments about having to also reinstall CC as well...is that necessary? I'm not even subscribed to it anymore.

No, reinstalling CC is not necessary, just Photoshop CC 2014.
