I'm using Adobe Illustrator CS4. I been working on my project and I found out that a couple of file which I do is unable to open. Sometime is unable to save the file too. There are times I tried to open my project file it take a long time to open it. I'm using the linking technique to open up all instead of putting all of them into a single file. Is this a memory issue or other related hardware issue? Can anyone have any solution to this problem?
Here is my machine spec:
Intel® Core 2 Duo Processor E8400,
4GB Memory RAM,
160GB 7200RPM S-ATA HDD,
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100,
Windows XP Pro SP3
I am getting "unable to read file" all the time with AI CS6. Those are files that contain links to files with transperancy (PSD, TIFF and sometimes other AI files as well). Break the link to the files by renaming the folder or the file itself and try opening the master AI file again. Works for me every time.
If that is the solution for your problem, please, post a bug report to Adobe via: https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform because that is a pretty lame problem for us to be putting up with on a daily basis.
