Error 16 after Photoshop CS5 installation

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


I installed a trial version of Adobe Photoshop CS 5 on my computer running Windows 7 ultimate. After the installation when I tried to launch the program I got a configuration error with Error code 16. The program won’t continue to launch so I had to quit.

Any ideas why am getting this error?
