the Full Runtime error is: Runtime Error (c:\Program Files (x...
  • Make sure that Photoshop Elements Editor is fully closed and the error no longer appears on-screen. Navigate to:

    • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Locale\en_us\
    • Windows Vista/7: C:\Program Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Locale\en_us\
  • Rename the file MediaDatabase.db3 to MediaDatabase.old.

  • Relaunch Photoshop Elements Editor. A "Building Contents and Effects" progress bar appears, as your MediaDatabase.db3 file is re-created. Wait for this process to finish; it can take several minutes.

This is what I did: Start - Dialog Box - typed C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\locale\en_us\ and Enter
Is this the way to do it?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I am not too computer savy so please bear with me. Thank you

Please do not type in the short cut.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
