I am facing a problem opening some PSD files, it gives me the following error message:

"Couldn't complete your request because the layer is not a valid text layer"

This is the same problem I am faicing I have downloaded the Repair Type layer.exe from weed's link but still it does not open the files!!

It opens the photoshop 8.0 CS and the photoshop gives same error then nothing happen just as before!!

Do I have to repair the files from Adobe Photoshop 7.0 ME  and then try to open it in 8.0 CS?

It is mentioned in the help of repair type layer.exe that the condition of the problem is the file may not be opening in photoshop 7.0 but my files are opening in Photoshop 7.0 ME!!

What Should I do? any comments!!
