Adobe Photoshop Error: 1 }Finally fixed!

I had this error when trying to open my Photoshop CC.  It was random, but sometimes more days than not, I would have to restart my computer, immediately after starting it up in the morning.  It was so frustrating! It really hate wasting my precious time, especially in the morning when I only have so much time before going to work.  Often, it kept me from getting my goal for the morning done.

"This product has has encountered a problem which requires that you restart your computer before it can be launched. If you continue to see this message after restarting your computer, please contact either your IT administrator or Daboe technical support for help, and mention the error code shown at the bottom of this screen. Error: 1"

First, I feel special because I always got the first "#1" error!  Second, do you see the typo of the double word "has?"

I'm happy to report that I think I resolved the problem!  I had a saved shortcut that I was opening the file from on my desktop.  It must have been a bad shortcut.  I navigated to my computer/local disk (c)/Program files/Adobe/AdobePhotoshop CC 2014.

I scrolled through the folder and found the .exe file and right clicked to create a new shortcut.  I also pinned it on my taskbar.

I noted that there were several .exe files in various folders, probably from other versions as Adobe CC updates often.  So I may have to in the future go and get a new .exe file again.  For instance, this one has "2014" in the path, so maybe it will change to 2015 on an update.

Now that I am aware that the path may change, next time it happens, I won't have to wait 6 months or more before I can fix it!  Hallelujah!
