I'm getting this error: "Bridge's parent application is not active. Bridge requires that a qualifying product has been launched at least once to enable this feature" message going from Bridge to Photoshop CS5 (and at the moment I do anticipate up-dating Photoshop to CS6).
Hardware is 2.80GHz i7, Win7 with 8.00 GB Ram and lots of HD space (boot drive is less than 1/2 full).
I have done some internet surfing and it seems a likely culprit may be the multiple copies of LR I had on this computer. Seems.
I had installed LR at version 2, 3 & 4 and have now whittled the multiple installs down to the 2.7 64 bit install and the 4.1 64 bit install.
I have tried 3-4 time to uninstall the 2.7 64 bit version with no luck what-so-ever, I have restarted after the attempts.
I also tried to do a repair of the 2.7 version (it does load and appears to be completely functional) but to repair it Win7 displays a message window asking for the original "msi" file. I have my original LR version 2 disk but 2.7 (well duh) was an update and no, I didn't keep the update file.
I tried Adobe customer support only to be cut off & I never got a call back "The courtesy of your hall is somewhat lessened of late".
Anybody got some wisdom to share that bears on this vexation.?
