    Photoshop CS5.1 Extended: Could not complete your request because there are too many Files Open

    processedpixels Community Member

      I saved a file last night and now this morning I get an error message stating: "Photoshop CS5.1 Extended: Could not complete your request because there are too many Files Open. Try closing some windows and try again.". I've rebooted the system and made sure Photoshop was the only program running and that there were no other files open prior to trying to open my file. I increased Photoshops ram usage, checked the OpenGL settings, 3D and VRAM settings, cleared my temp files and am at a loss for opening this file.

       

      System Specs:

      Win 7 64

      6 core I7 processor

      32gb Ram

      3GB VRAM

      600gb free space on 7200 rpm drive

       

      File specs:

      1 3D object replicated maybe 5 times (yes, I should have rasterized them, and will do that to 4 of them if I get the file open)

      Maybe 8 textures

      Not sure how many total layers.

       

      Is there anyway to get Photoshop to reopen this file?
