If Photoshop CS5 is not listed in your Extension Manager CS5...If you open your Extension Manager CS5 and Photoshop is NOT listed in the left column under Products, you need to re-install the extension manager component of Photoshop before you'll be able to install our DASHBOARD, or any Photoshop extension at all.
Use your original installation disc, or download, to do a fresh install of the Adobe Extension Manager for CS5. Launch your installer. You can select only the Extension Manager components for a quicker install. This should take between 5-7 minutes. Your existing Photoshop plugins, actions, etc. should all be automatically maintained through the re-install. You won't have to re-install previous software or plugins.
