PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe - System Error
QT he? progran can’t start because PLUGIT,dII is missing from your

Is that the exact name of the missing .dll file?
A screenshot of the exact error message would be helpful.

OK

This is the exact text form the error message. For some reason this is what I get when I try to upload a png pic. Also when I click ok on the error message elememts editor loads.

Do you have any third party plugins installed in pse 10?
Or do you have the Additional Plugins Folder checked in the Preferences-Plugins?

Resetting the pse 10 preferences might work:

On a mac it's Option-Command-Shift

I had the Additional Plugins Folder checked. I unchecked it and I no longer get that error message. When should I have that folder check. Thanks for you help much appreciated.Jim

One of the plugins you linked to in that folder must need the dll file, which has apparently gone missing.

Did you link to that folder to use some plugins in pse 8?
