I was unable to install or run installed photoshop cs6 cs5 on windows 8 x64 Release Preview.

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2565063)

and

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2538243)

error:16 ... and some configuration errors

I found that those updates in Windows Update section generate the problem.

Problem fixed be uninstalling all Microsoft Visual C++ 2005/2010 Redistributable and installing phtotoshop cs6 again.

Thanks for the details. We'll work with Microsoft to iron out the bugs with Photoshop and Windows 8, but for now, this isn't a supported configuration.
