We have just replaced/renewed all of our workstations and server. PC. Started using the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription service. Absolutely love the software BUT we have one rather big problem I can't figure out...When we create a new project in Premiere it keeps popping up with this error message: "Could not open the project file with write access. The file may be locked or you may not have permission to write to this location. Select 'Save As' from the File menu to save the project to a new location". Our IT consultant has double checked and made sure that all of our workstations have full write access to the server. At this stage, Premiere is only letting us save our projects to an external hard drive or on the workstation hard disk. This is not satisfactory. We need to be able to save to the server. Has anyone come across this problem? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out.
As far as I know, you can't do what you want
No current version of Premiere works properly, if at all, over a network
-you may NOT "map" your My Documents folder to a network drive
-you MUST give all users administrator accounts to use Premiere
-and especially Encore dual layer http://forums.adobe.com/thread/969395

Thanks Jim. Can you tell me CS6 Prem Pro work if I save Projects on the workstation or an external drive but source all the media from the enterprise drives on the server? Sorry to be a bother here but if you know what I am asking it may save me wading through a lot of forum threads.
I'll start reading. I'm hoping that we can store all of our media files on the server and save Premiere Pro Projects to the local workstation drives or external drives.
Thanks again for your reply and list of helpful threads.
As Jim said, keep your "master file" on the server and copy to a local drive for editing... then back to the server
You may want to have your IT person find "check out/in" software so 2 people don't try and edit the same file at the same time
