After all the Adobe updates recently I have been getting a message - not always - from Photoshop when I open it from Lightroom Classic:
"Your graphics processor is incompatible" See attached image. This is a first for me. My GPU is NVIDIA GeForce 1050 Ti(NVIDIA) which has never given me any difficulties. The drivers are the latest straight from NVIDIA (they were not out-of-date) I know what OpenCL is, but it is not clear it is relevant here. Also my GIS (geographic information System) apps work perfectly well as does Lightroom Classic and other photo apps. The link "Lean more about GPS compatibility" doesn't explain why this message is appearing. Further, Photoshop seems to be working OK. I have opened it on its own a few times but this message has not appeared.

Any ideas? thanks ...

Try installing the Nvidia Studio drivers and not the Game ready drivers. They are supposed to be more stable.
NVidia's website mentions that the Studio drivers are tested for compatibility with Adobe applications.

Thanks for telling me that. I could not find that on the NVIDIA www. I think it is some incompatibility with my particular system. There are millions of my graphics boards out there and at least 1000's of them are photoshop users. One would think that if others are seeing this that there would be a response. I can find nothing on the Adobe website about this particular problem although I have trouble with Adobe's website finding info. I see no change in the speed or the quality of the output from PS. It does seem that if I open PS directly the message does not appear but only appears when I open from LR Classic.
