Solved Trouble installing Photoshop CS5 plugin Pattern Maker in W7

August 13, 2013 at 20:14:08
Specs: Windows 7

I have Windows 7 and I use Photoshop CS5. I tried to install the filter CS5 PatternMaker, which is available from the Adobe site, as a plug-in'. I dragged the plug-in into Preferences and dropped it into the plug-in reference. My method of installing the plug-in appeared to be ok, but when I went to close the program a box came up with the title 'Owl Orphanage Photoshop.exe-bad image'.

The message reads... "Computer\Downloads\PSCS5OptionalPlugins_Win-in_US\OptionalPlug-ins\/win64\Alias.8BI is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."

This box now appears on my screen whenever I try to access Photoshop and Photoshop is inaccessible.

"Computer\Downloads\PSCS5OptionalPlugins_Win-in_US\OptionalPlug-ins\/win64\Alias.8BI is either not designed to run on Windows"

Most likely that plugin is not meant to run on Windows 7 or Photoshop CS5 is not fully compatible with Windows 7 and that plugin. To get Photoshop running again, delete that plugin from where you copied it to. Then I would look around on Adobe's site, maybe even their forum and check for compatibility with that version of Photoshop and that plugin. If it is compatible, see if they have any tips on how it should be installed.

Good luck, hope you get it sorted out.

I'm not sure if this applies but something to think about. If you're running a 64 bit operating system, you may have issues with programs or plugins meant for a 32 bit operating system. It's rare, but it can happen. Especially with a program as complex as Photoshop.

Thanks for trying to fix my problem of a frozen PS program. I eventually resorted to using the Just Answer website ... ... which I found very good.(Not cheap though) In my ignorance I entered my computer as 64bit when it should have been 32bit. With the guidance of a technician from Just Answer, putting it to rights was an incredibly simple operation. Once the 64bit option was deleted all was well. Very simple when you know how.

Unfortunately I was impatient and hadn't caught up with your second posting. I could have saved myself. $60! Another lesson learnt the hard way.

Thanks again....Enzeder
