Versions: 5, 5.02, 5.5

Capture Mode: Single Program Capture

Be aware that upgrades to an existing layer will leave previous versions behind in the layer. This means that if you upgrade from 5.0 to 5.5, then 5.0's file structure will still exist. Any previous version's files can be deleted without issue. If you don't delete an upgraded layer's previous version, shortcuts and other items will expose the previous version's structure.

DLC(Data Layer Creation) is a nice tool that will help you create an appropriate data layer.

19 June 2006: I was able to make Photoshop CS2 work but Bridge.exe complains about a missing DLL. I have not been able to fix that. Anyone with both Photoshop CS2 & Bridge working in a layer? I have tried Global capture as well as single program.

Answer: The dlls missing are: libagluc28.dll, libagli18n28.dll, and agldt28l.dll. Those files can be easily downloaded from the internet. Open the read-only layer, paste that file into WINDIR/system32 and Bridge will work correctly. Also, the update to 9.0.1 for Photoshop will work as well. If you don't have the dll, it keeps asking you for rebooting. I guess it is supposed to copy those files into the correct dir during reboot but since the layer is not active or for whatever reason, they are not copied over.

Sept 25, 2007: I did a single program capture of Photoshop CS2. It installed fine and I preloaded the missing dll's for Bridge. When I try to start Photoshop, I'm told that I don't have computer administrator rights (which I'm absolutely sure I do), so I'm not allowed to activate Photoshop. The program closes immediately after telling me through two pop-ups that I don't have the rights. The capture was done on Windows XP Home. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? Also, Imageready (from the same install) runs just fine.
