You could hack the prefs file in a text editor but before doing that, perhaps simply flush everything using the buttons on the prefs panel. Also do this with no project open of course. And finally, verify that you actually have enough space and proper user permissions on whatever otehr drive/ folder you paln on using.
Can you take a screenshot of the [Choose Folder] Dialog please?
Also, when you open the [Choose Folder] dialog, do you see the
[your user folder]
Let us know everything that you see, and a screenshot will help out a lot with this as well.
Have you verified your permissions, user privileges and group policies? If you can't get out of your user home directory, you must be restricted in some way....
Hi - thanks for the replies.
Mylenium, this is my home computer, windows 7, 64 bit. I am the administrator, and I tried right clicking and opening After Effects CS6 as administrator, without a project, but still see no way to access my other drives (no "my Computer showing up as shown in screenshots above).
Is there a way I can verify my permissions, privileges, and group policies to make sure none of that got messed up (even though I'm guessing it shouldn't apply in this circumstance)?
Of note, I do have a Desktop that shows up within my first Desktop hierarchy - not sure if that points to whatever the problem might be. I do not have a folder called Desktop on my Desktop - and not really sure what that duplication represents.
You'd also mentioned the possibility that I could hack my preferences with a text editor (though I'd rather figure out what's wrong and get it working the right way)
Thanks for any help.
Thanks for any suggestions.
