If this update is non critical I'll just let it ride.
What update is it? What current version of CS6 do you have?
It may be a permissions thing. Mac OSX goes all screwy in the permissions whenever it updates. Try fixing that first. fixing permissions problem that impedes start of Adobe applications
Well, the current version I have is 22.214.171.124 which is simply one back from the latest release which was just released within the past 24-48 hours. I'll look at permissions however I doubt that is the issue. Like I said, I have AE CS6, AE CC and AE CC 2014 all on the same machine. Everything but CS6 updated.
I tried fix permissions and that did nothing. I'm just going to bag it as I don't want to break the current install.
That "update" isn't really for After Effects; it's the update to Adobe Camera Raw. Unless you use Camera RAW in your CS6 version of AE a lot, I wouldn't worry about it at all.
Good to know. Thanks.
