Windows 10 Update Breaks My Fonts in Adobe Photoshop CS6

Broken Fonts

Ok this has annoyed me for a few weeks and finally today I found a fix so I thought I would share it:

The Problem: After updating to Windows 10 no installed fonts would work in Photoshop CS6 and the type engine would fail to initialize.

The Solution: 

1. close Photoshop CS6

2. open the folder C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Local\Adobe\TypeSupport\CS6

3. Rename the 2 files located in that folder: AdobeFnt_CMaps.lst and AdobeFnt_OSFonts.lst (e.g. to AdobeFnt_CMaps.lst_backup and AdobeFnt_OSFonts.lst_backup)

4. launch PSE15 and check again the typo tool

Finally something that worked for me, thanks to Dominik Kietla for this solution.
