ESTK random error at ActionManager code

Aug 10, 2012 1:55 AM

Hi,

I'm getting stuck with random ESTK errors about ActionDescriptors/ActionReferences:

 

DB_ 2012-08-10 at 10.49.15.png

I've scripts involving them and, sometimes, the script halts at innocuous lines like the one above (yes, Photoshop is the target, if you're wondering )

There's no way to get through it, I've to reboot PS and everything (the very same script) runs fine again - yet it's quite annoying while debugging.

Mac OSX Mountain Lion, PS CS6 - resetted PS prefs, disk permissions ok... what else, voodoo?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Davide

    The first thing to try is put the whole code in a try catch block and alert any error that it can produce.

    Oh dear, the next step would be to bin the Mac and get a PC

    Uninstall/reinstall PS. That would be my next step.

    Ok, have you tried creating another userId on the machine and try that?

    Have you ever heard of such a problem before?

     

    Yep. I would see it when trying to create a new Window object. PITA. I think I fixed it by doing a reinstall and resetting preferences. That was a couple of years ago.

    Well I would have started by dumping prefs… Toolkit first, then app, then look at installs… Sorry don't have CS6 I have had the debugger do something similar in other app and this fixed my issue…
    ( user library btw )
