Trying to edit selected Lightroom files in Photoshop and keep getting this message. "The files could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 could not be launched." 

This feature was working a few weeks ago.

The most likely reasons you're seeing this are either that Adobe has upgraded your PS installation and LR is looking for the old one - in which case quit LR, start PS, then boot LR and it *should* come back. The other possibility is that your backup software has made a copy of PS to a drive and LR was using the copy (I know, what coding stupidity allows that?!) and now that drive's offline or the backup copy it's trying to use is incomplete (because it's a backup - did I mention stupid?). In which case, delete the backup copy and do the quit reboot procedure until it comes back.

Good luck.

I was on with Support tonight - they have logged it as a bug and it should be fixed in the next release.

I am seeing this error with Photoshop CC 2015.

Is this fixed? My workflow is all bonkers now.

The files could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5 could not be launched.

No it's not fixed. Support said that the software engineer team knows the issue and it would be fixed in the next release. As for when it would be fixed - he only said it might be in a month or so for the next release.

Until the fix is released, you can work around this by launching Photoshop prior to invoking the Edit In command.
