Photoshop CS5 Error – Looking for Solution

Asked By 90 points N/A Posted on -


I am using Photoshop CS5 to edit some of my maps.

When I try to open bridge using this software to make a GIF file, I get the following error on the screen:



Error 2: photoshop is undefined.
Line: 1
-> photoshop.invokeBridge (false, false, “);

Has anyone come across such an error? If yes, please do let me know the solution.

Looking forward to your suggestions.

Kindest regards,

Hello everyone,

We just posted an update which includes addressing this issue. You will get the update from Photoshop's Help> Improvements…

Alternatively, you can visit this link to obtain an installer:

http: //www. adobe. com/support/downloads/detail. jsp? ftpID=4733

You need to no longer see the applying error on launch. Since the chipsets that throw this particular error don't support SSE2 coaching sets, GPU features and three dimensional features in Ps CS5 Extended won't work.

There are two ways when Adobe Bridge will throw you that error. First is when you start Adobe Bridge from the Options menu. Another is when you click File, Browse, and then select Adobe Bridge. One way of fixing that error is to delete the preferences file for both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.

To do this, press and hold CTRL + ALT + SHIFT when you start Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge. When you are prompted with “Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file” in Photoshop, select “Yes”. In Adobe Bridge, select all three options in the dialog and click “OK”. Start Adobe Bridge and see if it works. If this doesn’t fix it, install the latest update for Adobe Bridge.

You can find the update for Adobe Bridge at Adobe Product Updates. Once installed, restart Adobe Bridge and see if it works. If the problem continues, you need to delete the “StartupScripts” folder and then reinstall Adobe CS. To do this, start Windows Explorer then navigate to “C:Program FilesCommon FilesAdobe” and then delete the “StartupScripts” folder. Next, click Start, Control Panel, and then select “Add or Remove Programs”.

Select “Adobe Creative Suite 5” then click “Uninstall” or “Remove”. After this, restart your computer and then reinstall Adobe Creative Suite from the installation CD. This is useful if you installed Adobe Bridge and Adobe Photoshop as part of Adobe Creative Suite. See if this works.
