Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -


I recently installed the Windows 7 64bit and have installed Photoshop CS6 but when I tried to launch it, I get this error:

“Configuration error: Please uninstall and reinstall the product”.
I reinstalled this product but I received the same error message. I really need your help to remove this annoying error.
Configuration error: Please uninstall and reinstall the product.
If this problem still occurs, please contact Adobe technical support team for help and mention the error code shown at the bottom of the screen.

Before installing Adobe Photoshop CS6, make sure your computer meets the full requirements. Adobe Photoshop CS6 supports Windows XP Service Pack 3 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 as well as Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Microsoft Windows Vista is not supported so don’t install it on this operating system.

For the hardware, it requires at least Intel Pentium 4 or faster processor or equivalent AMD Athlon 64 processor, 1 GB RAM, 1 GB free hard drive space, 1024 x 768 screen resolution, 16-bit video card with 512 MB video RAM and OpenGL 2.0 support, and DVD-ROM. For Mac, it supports OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard and 10.7 Lion.

If you are using Windows 7 but you still have this error, try updating to Service Pack 1. To update, download and install Windows 7 Service Pack 1. There are no prerequisite software prior to installing Adobe Photoshop CS6 that’s why it should work as long as your system is fully compatible.
