I followed the instructions and got this:

Error : 0x00000002 (2) File not found.

Monitored process exited.
Initial process has exited (return code: 0)
All monitored processes have exited.
Exit with returncode 0

Is there something else I have to copy over from the VM's files?

Also, why not try activate it in the VM, then copy it over?
Photoshop was unable to parse the postscript ?

Hi I've exactly followed what you guys have said. But whenever I try to Launch it from Lutris it says 'Could not complete your request because photoshop was unable to parse the postscript'.
Any idea on how to fix this. Any help is appreciated.

Same for me, except thge message says 'Could not complete your request because Photoshop was unable to parse the".
The latest update changed something, it works now as I see the splash, then it complains about missing IE11.
I guess this is it. Until the freaking thing is sent to /dev/null by MS, we'll struggle with the impossibility of installing IE11. Actually, in wine 6.6 I could not install any IE...
do you need a 64 bit prefix

Didnt manage to test authentication/licensing. I just grabbed one of those unlicensed editions floating on the internet

Thanks for your answer!
I was sure you did like this, because mine simply does not work due to some missing implementation.
I have a subscription but I can't use it due to this.

As a side question, how did you check that against malware? I know some that got a virus using Wine.
Where did you grab it, if I may?
Is C:\Program Files\Adobe enough?
by No, only a fake one on Tuesday February 16th 2021, 13:28
Hello, is C:\Program Files\Adobe enough? Nothing from C:\Program Files\Common Files at all?
Still, how do you login when asked by PS?
RE: Is C:\Program Files\Adobe enough?
by Baalaji Balasubramani on Sunday April 4th 2021, 23:55
Yep, just C:\Program Files\Adobe is enough. I managed to get it running with just that.

dxvk *is* necessary.
