Illustrator CS4 MAC keeps crashing on me when I try to open it. It tells me it is 'unable to set maximum number of files to be opened', then 'quits unexpectedly'. How do I fix this problem? I presume I would have to reset a preference in Illustrator, but do not know how I would if I cannot open the application. If you have the solution, please post in computer steps ie Your Mom > Rocks > mysocks.ai
Yes, I located this thread too and technology is no longer 'simplifying' my life. Thanks!

Did you recently install Smartboard software? If so, this will likely fix your problem.
and follow the instructions.
It took me 2 minutes, and the problem is solved!
