Every time I start Illustrator CS6 I get an error message:
"Error loading plugin AIHostAdapter.aip. I have tried reloading the program, updating, everything. I've checked the forums but no one seems to have a solution
I am not sure. Here is a screenshot. Many people are having this problem. I am wondering what it is and what it does exactly and can't seem to find an answer to that question.
I deleted Illustrator CS6 yesterday and reloaded the program. I am on a Mac, Maverick 10.9. The strange thing is the dates. All plugins [in the file] correspond with the Illy CS6 reload except that particular Plugin?
Can I delete the file or is it a necessary plugin?
It does not look like it is installed by default. I do not see it in my Extensions folder for CC and CS6.
It could be that you installed an extension from a developer in the past. The AIHostAdapter.aip is mentioned in the Creative Suite Extension Builder Programmers guide.
I would try to remove with the Extension Manager.
Or otherwise use brute force and drag it out of the Extensions folder (you can always put it back if you are going to miss the error message).
Hi Serftosurf ,
You can keep a copy of this plugin somewhere (for future use if any) and then try to launch Ai after removing this from the extensions folder. I hope this will help.
Let us know if you encounter any issues after that or if it's resolved.
