Unable to write at location

Feb 27, 2013 1:32 PM




When I try to install the Photoshop update patch CS6 at OSX I get the following error;



Unable to write at location Users/XXX/Libary/Application support/Adobe/ Please provide write permissions to this location and try again. Please help?

    Hello Znerkene

    I understand that it is difficult to determine which forum to post in since there are so many. This particular forum (sharing and storage) was created to help those transitioning from to Adobe Revel. I am moving your post to the correct forum so that it can get proper attention.


    I'll put I this posting in the Photoshop community so the experts there can help you.

    We also have many other forums relating to other Adobe products


    Out of curiosity, can you tell me how you found our forum page?

    Have you repaired permissions yet? (With Disk Utility or something like Onyx)

    Rather than try to generalize, please check the specific permissions of the folder listed.


    Do you have permission to write into that folder?  If not, do whatever it takes to grant them to yourself.
