Adobe Save for Web AI Error

Aug 1, 2012 1:00 AM

Hello everyone,


in our company, we wrote an program to export *.ai files as *.jpg files automatically. Means it saves a copy via the Illustrator SDK (CS5).

Now, we got a problem with some files: While exporting, there appears an error message called "Adobe Save for Web AI Error" and, obviously, it stops the export.

I don't use an function called "Save for Web" and other people don't have the problem with our program.


Does anyone know why this message box is shown although we don't use this function?


Thank you in advance!


Regards from Germany

    All I can think of is that you're using some of the APIs that are associated with the "Save for Web" functionality and someone at Adobe put in a crappy error message (probably one they assumed would never been seen outside of "Save for Web"!).


    Do you know what line of code is throwing the error?
