Photoshop :: Installation Database Is Corrupt

Jun 5, 2009

I installed a trial version of CS3 on my PC and when I decided to install the extended version of CS3, it  didn't install.

  I learned from Adobe that I could use the WinCS3clean script, which I downloaded and ran on my computer, using level 1.After this I tried installing the extended version of CS3 but got the message "Installation database corrupt" and I can't install CS3.  Can anyone help me with this and let me know how to solve the problem? I use windows, XP 2.


Photoshop :: Corrupt Installation CD

Oct 20, 2008

Having troubles with a registered copy of Photoshop 6, I uninstalled it and when I tried to reinstall, the AutoPlay feature of the CD did not work. I then used Explore to find the Photoshop .exe file and could not find it on the CD. I tried using the Windows Add Programs feature, and it said that it could not find a .exe file on the CD. Called Adobe customer service who referred me to technical support and while they were able to confirm that my CD was registered, they were able to offer no help as the software is outdated. It has been installed 3 times, originally on Windows 2000 and has not been working correctly on Windows XP Home Edition.

Photoshop :: Fix Corrupt (?) Jpg?

Aug 20, 2006

ive just recovered a whole bunch of pictures from a crashed harddrive. The problem is most of them (all of them) are corrupted (i guess their corrupted). Is there any way to fix the pictures? There should be because the windows thumbnails show the pictures without errors, but as soon as i open them in eg picture viewer or firefox, they are corrupt. I cant even open the pictures in photoshop. PS (CS2) just gives me: "Could not complete your request because of a problem parsing the jpeg data".

This is what the pics look like (small one is windows thumbnail, big one is picture opened in "Windows picture and fax viewer".)

As you can see the thumbnail has no errors.

How do i fix the picture so i dont get errors after opening it?

Photoshop :: CS5 Files Becoming Corrupt?

Jan 25, 2012

I'm using Photoshop 5.5 and OS Lion. The Finder crashed while doing a Search. When I rebooted and opened Photoshop, every Photoshop file I had worked on that afternoon, plus two from the day before, was corrupt - nothing else was affected. Desktop preview icons and file sizes looked fine, but when I opened the files they were just bands of color and noise. All layers were gone and the size was incorrect.  The jpgs I had saved from the psd files were also corrupt. Adobe blames Apple and Apple blames Adobe.

Photoshop :: How To Corrupt JPG For The Effect

Oct 20, 2013

I have Photoshop cc and I would like the try and have an image with the corruption lines for an effect. I have been looking on the web for a way to physically do this by opening the file in Text Mate and swap some code (not the header) and try to re-open in ps. Every time I do this ps refuses to open the file.
I know this is slight odd, but how to corrupt an image and still have ps open the file and show corruption lines like the old days.

Photoshop :: Corrupt Preferences File - Why?

Mar 10, 2009

I wondered why/how ones preferences ever get corrupted. Ive use PS, since 2.5 on all sorts of PCs, sometimes with it running around the clock for days. Never once had I encountered a corrupted preferences file until now, that is.

What I encountered can only be listed as an observation. Im sure that it is but one possible cause. Still, I thought that Id share my experience.

Up at 4:00AM to start a rush scan job. Everything boots up fine, and I start PS CS2. As its loading the plug-ins, etc., I notice that Sun Microsystems Java wants an update and its icon has appeared in the Tasktray of my XP-Pro SP3. I open it, and click Update Later, or whatever the exact dialog is. It drops back to the Tasktray. PS seems to be taking a long time to load on my workstation, but I give it a few moments. Nothing. Its hung at Reading Text Global Resources. I check Task Manager PS is shown as Not Responding. Odd, this has NEVER happened before in all those years. Not so much as once.

I remembered that there was an update for Extend Script, that I told PS to hold off on. I go to Updates, via Bridge and its still there waiting. I End Task for PS and look for something usable from MS. Of course theres nothing. Event Viewer shows an Application Hang, with no useful info. I install the Extend Script Update, and try PS again. It gets to the same spot and hangs.

OK, I allow Java to update (making sure to NOT allow the installation of the MSN Search Toolbar - sheezh! I try PS yet again. Hang at the same spot.

Re-boot and hang. Though I have said it a thousand times, trash your prefs, it takes a moment for it to sink in. I trash my prefs and all is good with PS. Luckily, I had my dual-monitor Workspace saved, and it only takes a minute to change the default preferences back to what I want.

Normally, I have everything, and I mean everything, set to NOT auto-update. I turn this feature off for every program that I install. I use Premiere a lot, and do not want Norton, or anybody, waking up and phoning home. Ill tell em when to update. Well, I missed Java.

I can only guess that it did its update thing, just at a critical time for PSs loading and blew up the prefs file. Had it popped up a second later, or maybe a second earlier, I doubt that Id have had to trash my prefs. After all these years (decades really), I had a corrupt preferences file.

Im sure there are a myriad things that can corrupt a preferences file, and I am only guessing at what caused mine. However, the timing is perfect, so Java gets the blame.

Photoshop :: Corrupt Image Saving

Aug 3, 2006

I try to save a .jpg or .png, the image file is corrupted. With JPEG's, it'll display most of the image, and then the rest will be just grayed out. With PNG's, I will get just a Red X in Internet Explorer, and a "image cannot be displayed because it contains errors." in Firefox.

Photoshop :: Missing & Corrupt Photos

Oct 16, 2008

I'm using PHotoshop starter 3.0. In this I have tumbnails of my photos. However, due to a problem on my computer my family pics were lost. I was able to recover some using a photo recovery program. HOwever, there are many missing/corrupt photos. These thumbnails are still in photoshop. Is there a way I can work with or print the tumbnails -- even if its a lousy picture atleast I won't loose the memory.

Photoshop :: Corrupt JPEG Files

Nov 18, 2004

I bought an HP Photosmart 320 and found out too late that there was a bug in the firmware that caused problems when writing to large memory cards. I have fixed the firmware but I have over 100 photos taken before the fix that I would like to salvage. I have found many services that will recover deleted files but none that fix corrupted ones.

Photoshop :: Reinstallation Of CS4 From Download On My Adobe (Corrupt Installations DB)?

Sep 11, 2013

I have tried to use the online chat app and telephone to get a response,  but have had no luck. I recently tried to reinstall Adobe CS4 on my computer after it crashed. I downloaded the version I had purchased from My Adobe and everything  seemed fine. After running the Setup program it came back with a dialog box saying  that the Installer Database was corrupt and that I should contact  customer support.

I have since attempted to download it two more times, with Akamai and  without. Both time with the same result.I was told when I finally reached a support person that this is the only vehicle for support of CS4.
