Image in CS5 fails to open
« on: August 11, 2011, 05:01:05 PM »

When I try to open an image in CS5 bridge I get the message "cannot find Movie Maker" and I can't open the image. Anyone have any idea what's going on? It was working perfectly earlier. I have no idea what "Movie Maker" is and it is not something I've used before.
Thanks for all replies.

No. Actually the plot has thickened a bit. Checking further the problem seems to be only affecting TIF files. When I try to open a TIF file I get the message. It will open any RAW file and when I try to open a JPEG it refuses to open but I get no message. This is really weird.

Sounds like the file association for TIFF or TIF is set to the wrong program.

Assuming you are on PC win 7, go to control panel, defualt programs, set associations.  XP is slightly different.

Thanks loads, Keith. That did it! Still not sure why it changed in the first place. It may have had something to do with finally uninstalling CS4 which I did yesterday.
