I recently upgraded my Lightroom 5.6 to 5.7 and my Photoshop CS6 extended 64 bit to Raw Update 8.7. Since this update my Image Edit process going from Lightroom to Photoshop is no longer seamless. Right clicking on the image and selecting "edit in Adobe Photoshop CS6" eventually returns an error message after about 2 minutes "The file could not be Edited because Adobe Photoshop could not be Launched" (see Lightroom_1 error attachment) -After clicking OK on the error message the image opens in Photoshop.
When I select multiple images in Lightroom (in this example 3 images are selected in Lightroom) I get a different set of error messages (see attached Lightroom Multiple error_1,_2,_3 error messages). These messages arrive in sequence 1,2 and 3 after clicking ok on the preceding error message.
This all worked fine in Lightroom 5.6 and Photoshop CS6 with 8.6 Raw as well as all preceding releases
Trying the same activity from Lightroom 5.7 to Photoshop CS5 produces a different error message but the image opens ok (see Lightroom_ Photoshop CS5 error attachment

Your Photoshop install is damaged, and Lightroom is having problems finding Photoshop.

Uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop sounds like it would help a couple of those issues.

But you might want to check your system for other disk problems, and make sure you have everything backed up.
