    AE CC 2014 - "Could not create file..."


      Hi all I hope someone can help me. My after effects will not open at all and just keeps giving me the same error. I haven't changed any of the permissions and i'm wondering if this had anything to do with the most recent update?


      First dialogue box:

      "After Effects warning: Could not create the file '/Users/Doug/Library/Preferences/Adobe/After Effects/13.2/dummy'."


      Once clicked 'ok' second dialogue box appears:

      "After Effects can’t continue: unexpected failure during application startup"

      Your help would be much appreciated!
