Adobe Flash Cs4 is missing a Panel layout

Apr 15, 2012 1:57 AM

Tags: #cs4 #missing #adobe #flash #layout #panel #essentials #essentials.xml

The error message that came up was...

XML parsing fatal error: Invalid document structure, Line:1, File: /Users/(my name)/Library/Application Support/Adobe Flash CS4/en/Configuration/Workspace/Essentials.xml


When i click OK the same message comes up again. WHen i Click OK on this box it comes up with..


The following panel layout is missing and cannot be read

/Users/(my name)/Library/Application Support/Adobe Flash CS4/en/Configuration/Workspace/Essentials.xml


The application will not have a correct layout. please load one from Windows -> Workspace


When i went to look at The essentials file It was empty and had no writing in it.


I have no Windows folder (i belive) but i do have a windowsSWF folder


What do i need to do? I have seen similar problems when ive searched the forums but none of them have helped me.


I have tried to reinstall it and the problem was still there.

    that was a response to dp12 who should have copied that code, saved it to Essentials.xml in the correct directory.
