I've just spent a frustrating hour trying to get photoshop CS2 to run on my new Acer laptop with no joy.
Then browsing Adobe's support forums (this one ) and found that new DELL pc's in the UK are shipped with the keyboard set to Welsh by default... which causes Photoshop to die when trying to init the menus...
Didn't mention Acer but I thought oh well, its as a good a thing to try as anything else... which turned out to be a good choice.
Quite why the Welsh keyboard layout kills PS/PSE I'm not sure but what the heck - its fixed now.
(All I can assume is that PS doesn't have the right language packs to cope with Welsh and doesn't have a fallback so it gets upset and hangs...)[/url]
