Photoshop “Could not complete your request because something prevented the text engine from being initialized …. ” error

Could not complete your request because something prevented the text engine from being initialized ….” Error

I tried all the method i found in google , for ex

1. Close all Adobe applications.
2. Go to Start and in the search field, type:  %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Adobe
3. Delete the TypeSupport folder
4. Open Photoshop, things should be back to normal.

nothing happen, but i found the problem is

  • I ‘m using portable Photoshop CS5, so remove all the file created by Photoshop
  • Install another version of Photoshop ( not Portable )

The problem solved, Good luck!
