Photoshop CS6 - Export to layers causes Photoshop to crash with no explanation of why..... I have to open CS5 to export layers to files....

There isn't much else to add because no error report or reason is given....

Which OS version are you using?

What does the crash report say?

And did you accidentally copy plugins from a previous version of Photoshop?

Hi Chris...

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate / 32 bit OS

I haven't copied across any plugins... I don't use any really...
This "Export Layer to Files" problem was the same with the trial version of Photoshop CS6. I had to uninstall the trial version completely before I could install with my new Creative Cloud membership.

I still have my old copies of CS5 Creative suite on my machine for exactly this kind of thing, a just in case...

As far as I know... I havent seen a crash report... where can I get those from? I know on my mac it would appear.. but on Windows 7? let me know and Ill get it.

I just ran a test to see if it did it again... and it made an attempt to export this time... Normally it just shuts down photoshop. But this time it has come up with the following error... (See attached Image)



But to be fair.. it at least attempted it then... rather than just shut down completely..

Have you got "Open Documents as Tabs" unticked in the preferences? as that can cause this problem.

Hey Paul,
Yes I have "Open Documents as Tabs" unticked.... it just isn't practical to use tabs for the work I do...
Is this an issue you have had? And this resolved it?

Yes, it seems that this is a major problem for anyone running untabbed.
As you using Windows 7, you could try my version "Layer Saver"

I have put a check in the script to tick that option (if unticked), process the layers, then untick that preference. This works for me on Windows 7 64bit but someone has said this doesn't work on Macs.
