I get the following error multiple times a day:
Can’t save the illustration. The file may be read only, or the file is in use by another application, or you do not have the required permissions. Please save the document with a different name, or in a different folder or directory. -54
Sometimes I will work on a file for an hour before this erorr will randomly show up, but when it does I can no longer save the file unless I Save As or Save As Copy. This is frustrating. Does anyone have any idea what the issue could be? I have been unable to isolate a single action that might be causing this.
This is completely new for me. I have never ran into this error before. I'm running Windows 7 and saving locally to an internal hard drive with no other users. I am running Illustrator as an "administrator."
Are you editing a PDF and viewing that in Acrobat at the same time.
Thank you for your reply. I am editing an .AI file and it is not open in any other program. This error is occuring on very file I work with. Sometimes the error will go away within a minute or two, and will allow me to save. Other tims it does not and the only way to save is to mkae a copy.
Thank you for your advice. I did as you suggested and found that "Administrators" was already incldued in that list. When I tried to add Local Administrators, the system did not recognize it and wouldn't allow it.
Unfortunately, this issue persists.
Some process ahold of your then, but which ojne hmmmm? Try chekcing the task manager, or download
Did this problem just start recently, then go back to a system restore point.
