Do you have administrator privileges for that machine?
Yes, or I wouldn't be able to set access right?
Now I've set my username to full control in all the adobe folders I could find. I even checked to see if I had access to the AppData folders, which I had.
I have access to the program files/adobe programfiles/commonfiles/adobe programfiles(x86)/adobe programfiles(x86)/commonfiles/adobe
I've scoured the folders, I can't set any more permitions. Still doesn't work.
I need an answer for this also, used to be only indesign that wouldn't open because of permissions, but now after my pc did updates it's also photoshop
- im a very frustrated graphic designer, that works from home with no I,T support.
Don't go changing any permissions in Program Files. They are supposed to be unwriteable. Preferences are in %appdata%. You should set all files and folders in %appdata% with full permission - not one at a time, but by letting it set all files. Please let us know if you don't know how to do that, telling us your system (e.g. Windows 7, Mac OS 10.11).
