Photoshop CC spits out "debug" file.

(1/2) > >>

Akira:
When I processed the latest two DNG files from Sigma fp to the respective JPEG files in the latest version of Photoshop CC running on the latest version of Window 10 spitted out text files named "debug".  The first one had some texts in it (a bug report?), whereas the second one had no content.

The yielded JPEG files are intact and the process seemed to be just fine.

Have any of you experienced this phenomenon?

Ethan:
There are many reasons for PS to issue a debug file including pressing inadvertent some key combination.

However, there is a reported bug for the generation of random debug files and there is nothing to worry about besides the inconvenience.

The solution is to go back to a previous PS install or to simply delete the PS Pref file and restart PS.

I have the latest PS version installed but do not like to use it and prefer PS 2017 if it fails I go back to PS 2006.

Ann:
My personal method is to use the built-in Uninstaller before downloading and installing a new version of any of Adobe's programs from their ACC Cloud.

After I have installed the new version I always trash the existing Preferences before rebuilding a completely new set of Preferences. Then I Quit out of the application and relaunch it.

The only times when I have experienced the Generator error is when I have had more than one version of Ps activated at the same time; and, recently, when I had an Extension called "Doco" installed.

The very useful Doco is apparently not digitally signed correctly by its Developer so it will no longer run on more security-aware operating Systems (such as Catalina).

Akira:
Ann ant Ethan, thank you very much for your advises!

As the processing itself is of no problem, I will keep using it for the time being.  The "debug" file seems to be issued only at the first time a DNG file is opened, and I can keep processing the files without annoyance.

But I will uninstall/reinstall it at the next time of the update.

Thank you again!

I had a quick look. Do you recommend Doco?
