The regular Adobe forums seem to be semi-abandoned by employees so thought I'd move the conversation here.

Original Post (not started by me): http://forums.adobe.com/message/3629490

I've recently hooked up 7 monitors as several others in this post above have done.

As soon as you connect the 7th you cannot load Photoshop. Disconnect 7th, loads fine.

Error Message:
Could not initialize photoshop because of a problem using the Adobe Color engine.

Photoshop CS4 still loads fine with 7.

You can see the various things other users have tried there without success.

I'm personally using Win7 x64, 5 monitors on "ATI Radeon 5770 Eyefinity 5 series" and two on "GeForce 8400 GS". Drivers no older than a month.
ATI Driver: 8.850.0.0
NVidia Driver: 8.17.12.7061

The forums aren't abandoned, and are being actively monitored and responded to.

As for the 6 monitor bug - we're still waiting on another party to provide necessary information.

No offense, just they're rarely responded to or only receive one response. It's fine. The software for those forums is a lot harder to use than this one. Can't even use Chrome with the old one. Hopefully this is expanded to the other products as well. Thanks for responding.
