Photoshop Elements 2021 Editor doesn't open up anymore

I recently upgraded to Photoshop Elements 2021 and it worked fine for a few weeks.

But now when I try to launch the photo editor, it does not open anymore. 

I use a Macbook Pro, IOS 10.14.6. 

Please help! I need it working again ASAP.

I don't work with Mac but I do work with Windows and lots of Elements Editors;  So I will ask you this:  Did you register/activate the product?  If not, click on Help>Register/Activate and use the key that came with your product.  If it says "deactivate" you already activated it.

You are not alone:


So it's the same issue not only on different Mac OS versions but also on my Windows 10 (1909).

The solution was to uninstall and reinstal.
