I cannot open my Photoshop because I keep getting this error: The code execution cannot proceed because ScCore.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

It was working fine last night and now it open and I have a project due in the next few days. I would appreciate any help. I tried calling Adobe and was on hold for over 30 minutes.

Thank you,

Hi Tiffany,

The file could have become corrupted.  You will need to reinstall via the Creative Cloud.
