Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

After installing Adobe Photoshop CS5 when I try to launch it, an error message pops up on my monitor’s screen saying “error 16”. And after that, Adobe installer warns to reinstall it.

Please help me solve this issue, for I know not how to fix it, any which way I tried.

Hi Orchid,


First you check the configurations you need to install the Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Then you check your DVD. Check whether it is Original or Copied one…

Because if it is a copied DVD, then some files can be erased.

As you said you are getting your problem after you try to launch Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Sometimes from a copied DVD you can run the Set up. But after installing it you are getting some errors.


If the first solution is not worked, try this one also.

First you uninstall your already installed Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Then change your DVD WR or Rom and install it again.
