Photoshop CC 2021 v22.3.0: Could not complete your request because of a program error

After updating to Photoshop CC 2021 v22.3.0 , I am unable to process images either by opening directly in Photoshop or via "Edit in ..." from Lightroom.  Error message is: Could not complete your request because of program error.


In 22.3.0, Edit | Preferences | Performance does nothing when selected - the options for this setting do not display at all (or occasionally it has given the same error message).


After reverting back to Photoshop CC 2021 v 22.2.0 the problem goes away.


In 22.2.0 I updated Edit | Preferences | Performance, deselected “Use Graphics Processor" and updated to 22.3.0 again.  I am now able to process images as before - obviously without "Use Graphics Processor" which remains unselected.  If I select this option in 22.3.0 I get the above error message again.

Hi all,


Could you please update Photoshop 22.4.1 version via Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop and it should resolve this issue for you.


Here's how you can update to the latest Photoshop version:

I also have two computers I had to roll back after 22.3 was installed

Same here: Upgraded to 22.3.0, and on one computer, I'm perfectly fine, but on the other, I get a lot of the "Could not complete your request because of a program error." It happens a lot.

When I learned that I should turn off the GPU Acceleration option, I tried to go to the Performance preferences to turn it off and I get "Could not complete the Performance command because of a program error."

For now I've backed up to 22.2. I hope this can be fixed soon.

Me too, exactly as keith_445mmpinhu7cw describes, except I haven't tried re-upgrading to 22.3.

When I did have 22.3 installled, I could not open System Info (due to program error) but sniffer.exe reported the following:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021>sniffer
glgpu[0].GLName="Quadro FX 580/PCIe/SSE2"
glgpu[0].GLRenderer="Quadro FX 580/PCIe/SSE2"
