Please refer the below discussion.
I have installed Adobe Lightroom CC. In the process of launching, a popup appears, that says: "AN INTERNAL ERROR HAS OCCURRED. Cannot create the required folder: /Users/(my user name)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets." So e
Let us know if that helps.
I had read that and several other posts around the internet that have what appear to be the same issue. I did try the ideas offered, even though they were for Mac's and again, I am on a PC. I have been through the whole 'take control of a folder' and give yourself permissions for the folder. I already had the permissions, but I went through it anyway.
There are two reasons I posted this as a new thread.
1) Everything else I found was for the Mac. Again, I am on Windows 8.1
2) The other posts refer to a different issue altogether - and it typically involves installation. I have been using LR for several years now. It is not about installation.
It is simply a permissions problem. Even though there isn't really a Application Data folder there is a Junction linked folder called that which actually points to AppData.
MS moved all the things that would be in Application Data over to the AppData folder but put in a Junction linked folder for older programs that are looking for that Application Data folder.
It seems that your system isn't handling that very well. This can happen if you fooled around with the security section of either the ROOT of the C drive or the Users folder.
Take a look at this google search and the thread from the MS forum.
