Sounds like you may be missing some of your required plugins.

I also have this issue...my workarround is to start Photoshop CS6, then start Bridge CS6. This seems to work. No way to open Bridge from PS, same Java error. Some other functions are also affected, so I'd like to solve this.

My OS is Windows 10 current, Java is current, CS6 is current as well.

Do NOT have this issue on another computer with everything current as well, although one install was from a single license and the other from a suite. Seems to be a machine/install problem...although I have uninstalled/reinstalled CS6. (however retaining prefs, etc from the first install,) Starting and deleting prefs does not solve it. I have not been able to find any Java plugins using Adobe Exchange, nor any list of required plugins.

I also have CC installed (on both machines), as long as one works it is not a huge issue, but bears looking into as we use a couple of things that have been removed from CC. Thanks for listening.

JavaScript != Java

If you get an error about the JavaScript plugin not being found - it means that your Photoshop installation is messed up and you need to reinstall Photoshop to get all the required plugins.

Chris, did that before from the CC Panel. However, I did NOT remove all of the prior install while uninstalling CS6 per the dialog. Should that be done? TIA

Yes, you should remove any leftover files -- because somehow your install still is not correct.

Tried it using a clean install...removed all retained prefs, actions, etc...but still getting the JavaScript error. Any way to manually install that plugin?

No, that plugin is installed with the application.
