Could not complete your request becuase read or write access has been denied

I'm Using Adobe FreeHand MX 11.0, when i need to print out always msg error"Could not complete your request becuase read or write access has been denied".
can your help me  solve it?
i'm using Window Vista Home Premium and a try to upgrade the version but still cannot work.

I get that sometimes when I'm trying to export to PDF (same as printing). The solution I found on another forum some time ago:
Go into
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Macromedia\FreeHand MX\11\English\Settings
and delete the fhprefs.txt file. The next time you start FH, the file will be regenerated and FH will startup like a new installation. I'm using XP but I find I have to do this fairly often. Don't be discouraged if it doesn't work the first time. Keep trying. Also try deleting fhmxxmgr.txt, logging off and back on the desktop and any combination of the aforementioned.

  • Error:  "Could not complete your request because of a program error" (photoshop CS2 9.0.2 on MAC OSX

    Today I started my program (photoshop CS2 9.0.2) and opened a JPG file. When I went to print the file the program crashed and closed. When I restarted the program and went to open the file I got this error message, "Could not complete your request because of a program error".
    I have tried several different file types/sizes and all result in the same error message since the program crashed. It will not open any file I try to open. As I indicated above I am using Photoshop CS2 9.0.2 it is on a MAC with OSX 10.4.11.
    I called Adobe and the Rep directed me to Tech Note 331307 and told me to Re-create the Photoshop preferences files. Which I did and restarted the program, but when I tried to open a file (any file) I still get the same error message so it doesn't appear to be the preferences.
    Does anyone have any info as to what the problem may be and how to correct it.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the response. OK... This is the first day I have been able to get back to the problem.
    My system I am running Photoshop on is a Power Mac G4, AGP Graphics ATY Rage 128Pro chip set 16MB VRAM LCD 1280x1024 32-bit color, 500MHz, 1.75GB of memory, 1 MB L2 Cache, 100 MHz Bus Speed. I had installed the latest security update and repaired the permissions the day the problem started.
    Now to day I started the system and went in and created a Guest Account. I logged into the guest account and started Photoshop. Low and behold it worked just fine. So I logged out of guest and logged into my main user account And started Photoshop. Wouldn't you know it.... It works just fine. I can open any file I want with now problems.
    I got to thinking after I had done all of this that I wished I had tried to open a file in Photoshop today prior to creating the guest account to see if it still had the problem in my main user account.
    I did not change anything else on the system and all seems to work fine now. So at his point I am really not sure what the problem was.
    Again thanks for taking the time to respond to this issue.

    blucoast,
    Can you please be more detailed? When are you getting this - what is causing it? Any specific tool or while starting Photoshop itself?
    Do you see an error number or error code or a report? Can you post that here?

  • Effects not working? "Could not complete your request because of a program error?"

    Hey guys&gals - I have always had this problem when working in RGB/CYMK modes - can anyone help me with that?
    More more importantly, now I am getting in in Grayscale mode as of this morning.
    I run Photoshop 6 V 13.1.2 x64 and just updated it this AM.
    Effects are crucial for my job, so I need this fixed asap!!
    I have tried the ctrl, alt, shift start up to no avail. Restarted, shutdown my PC as well.
    Please advise!
    Thanks,

    Found the places I was supposed to - now what? Photoshop isn't crashing... doesn't give me any info other than a box saying "Could not complete your request because of a program error." And I have no choice but to click OK. This only happens when I try to use the layer effects in any color mode. Originally it was only in RGB/CMYK but now also happens in Grayscale.
    I'm not technologically savvy - I know what programs I use, but that is all.

  • Can't open file: "Could not complete your request because of a program error"

    I have a Photoshop file that suddenly won't open.  Last week I upgraded to CS5--the file had been created in CS3 prior to that.  When I try to open it, I receive this error message (in CS5): "Could not complete your request because of a program error."  I tried to open the same file in CS3; there, the file opens, but as soon as I try to do anything I get the same error message....which, annoyingly, re-appears the second I click "OK," so the only thing I can do in CS3 is force-quit.
    I've used Time Machine to retrieve versions of the file that were saved four days ago, seven days, and several weeks ago, and I get the same message every time.  Even on versions that were last saved with CS3 (before I installed CS5).
    Naturally, this is one of the most important files in my life right now....it's a 300 MB file that contains hundreds of layers and dozens of comps.  So the fact that I suddenly can't open it, after shelling out $1200 to upgrade to the latest and greatest Adobe has to offer, is, to say the least, distressing.
    Any advice will be appreciated.
    Thanks,

    First thing I would do is investigate hard drive issues and the health of the OS.

  • What causes "Could not complete your request because of a program error"?

    I am trying to edit some pictures from a recent shoot and every time I try to open one a message pops up saying, " Could not complete your request because of a program error." What does this mean and how do I fix it?

    Welcome to this forum!
    I’m happy to help but can do a better job if I have more information about your situation.
    What version of Photoshop do you have?
    What is the make and model of the camera you used for the shoot?
    Could you also include a screenshot of your entire screen as the error message pops up? To include a screenshot in your post, click the word “Reply” below the post you’re reading right now and then click the camera picture to embed the image.

  • CS3 "Could not complete your request because of a program error" message

    I am running Photoshop CS3 and I just upgraded to leopard 10.5, the latest version of leopard. My processor is a dual 2.5 ghz powerpc G5 and I have 4.5 GB DDR SDRAM.
    Upon opening the program (whether I'm opening a file or just opening the program) I'm getting a "Could not complete your request because of a program error," error message.
    After clicking ok, I get infinite dialog boxes and have to force quit the program.
    Any known solutions for this?

    Yes, I had that happen this morning as well. That message appeared after I opened a psd file, when it asked if I wanted to update text layers. I clicked ok, the file opened (it's layers appeared in the layers palette), and that that program error dialog popped up immediately after. I never could get it to go away, it just kept appearing in succession. Were you trying to open the file over a network?

  • Saved Tiffs will not open in CS2 and generate a "Could not complete your request because of a program error".

    this was supplied by Ann Shelbourne.
    Saved Tiffs will not open in CS2 and generate a "Could not complete your request because of a program error".
    These files will often open in Photoshop 7.0.1 or in CS1 but not in CS2.
    The trouble may be caused by bad dates in the EXIF data and can originate from an incorrectly-programmed digital camera; or from a scan that was created after after Jan1 of this year (because of a known bug in some scanner software).
    If someone runs into the "Could not complete your request because of a program error" problem, and does not have CS1, try opening the Tiff in TextEdit.
    The EXIF data is right at the top. Check the EXIF data for bad creation dates and change any incorrect ones there.
    Save and close; and then the file will probably open in CS2 without a murmur.

    > If iPhoto causes problems why not open the images from the Finder?
    I get the error if I open a file from within iPhoto using "OPen in external editor" and then alter it (or do not alter it) and try to save it over itself, or save it anywhere else.
    I get the error if I do "Show file" in iPhoto to see the file in the Finder. Then, if I double-click and it opens in PS, and then alter it (or do not alter it) and try to save it over itself, or save it anywhere else.
    > And with »save it anywhere« You indicate that You use the Save As-command?
    Right.

  • When opening a file in Photoshop CC I get 'Could not complete your request because of a program error.'

    I can see this is a generic error message('Could not complete your request because of a program error.') and I have done my best to read through many of the responses.
    It occurs on the second, third, or sometimes fourth file that I try to 'Open', however I can still use the 'Open With' command through Finder.
    I have tried resetting the preferences as per Julieanne Kost's recommendations, I have reinstalled Photoshop CC 2014, Generator isn't turned on, I don't have any Third-Party plug-ins loaded, I have tried running it in Safe mode, and I have reset my iMac's PRAM.
    Photoshop doesn't appear to be writing a PSErrorLog.txt file?   (~/Library/Preferences/Photoshop CC Settings/PSErrorLog.txt)
    I haven't had any other issues.
    I am running Photoshop on OS X Yosemite 10.10.2.
    Please can you help me?

    Does anyone have any other ideas as this is very frustrating.

  • Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended Could not complete your request because of a program error.

    When starting Photoshop CS6 I get this error message, Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended  Could not complete your request because of a program error (-- OK --).  This happens on the main screen immediately.  Once I click OK the program seems to be alright.  But some part of it, that I haven't discovered yet, may not function properly.
    I am running Windows7 Professional Service Pack 1 64 bit with Intel i7-4770k CPU and 16 GIG Ram.
    This problem just started recently, everything has been fine up till now.  I must have done something when trying to defragment the Registry or get rid of temp files.
    I have uninstalled Photoshop CS6 and reinstalled it with no effect.  I have tried to run Photoshop CS6 32 bit in Safe Mode, but it will not run.  It hangs up on Reading Memory.
    Is there any kind log file that would tell me what is causing this to occur?
    Does anyone know what might cause this?
    Thank you in advance for any helpful information.

    Did you reset your Preferences and Photoshop tools.  Photoshop Preferences are not removed with an un-install and an Install does not install preferences.  Preferences are created  for a user id when a user ID start Photoshop  and there are no preferences for the user ID.

    It is a mute point now. PSE12 finally failed to the point it locked up the MAC. I had to restore the MAC OS from backup to a point before the PSE12 update.
    The MAC now operates correctly and so does PSE12. I don't think I'll be updating PSE any time soon.

  • Photoshop CS4: Could not complete your request because of a program error.

    Hello,
    I find myself in an interesting dilemma. I've had CS4 for a bunch of years now and have loved it. Unfortunately, my MacBook Pro's hard drive crashed a month or so back. Luckily, I have been using an external hard drive to back up my computer, so when it crashed, I lost very little in comparisson to some horror stories I've heard.
    My Ps was able to retuned to my new hard drive with virtually no problems. However, the error "Could not complete your request because of a program error" shows up in rapid succession 5-10 times after I select the text tool. Interestingly enough, if I weather that storm, I'm able to use all the fonts, actions, etc. with no problems. Originally, it was simply a nuissance that I dealt with, but it's beginning to hamper my work, especially today when I was on deadline.
    Doing some research and reading around the web and given the most culpable reason seems to be something wrong with a font, but I don't know which font I'm missing, need to update, whatever.
    So here's my question: how do I get this thing to go away? Is there some file or something like that buried in a backup that I didn't bring over to the new hard drive that's causing the problem. At first, I was just happy to have the thing working after the crash, but it's getting pretty annoying.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Well, I don't know which fonts came from where, to be honest. It's kind of a mix of whatever I've done over the past 5+ years, if that makes sense.
    I'm perfectly fine deleting all the fonts and reinstalling just the ones needed for PsCS4 if there's a file of that.

  • [Mac] Could not complete your request because of a program error.

    Hello, I've got the problem with opening the file. It was saved in Photoshop CS 6, everything was ok, but after opening the file in few seconds here the message "Could not complete your request because of a program error." What should I do?? It was making all day long!
    [Title Edited to reflect OS for clarity - Hunt]

    Olga Chu,
    Thank you for that information.
    Yours is not a common error, though I have read of it before. In about 2 decades of using Ps (for most daily), I have never encountered it. However, there are some great folk here, who have seen about everything, and will probably have some solutions - though there might be a few additional questions. You have given them something to work with, so all is not lost yet.
    There is likely something specific to your installation (maybe something as simple as a Permissions issue?), or to your system. Since I am a PC-only person, I will not muck about trying to guess what might translate from my PC's to your Mac. Since the Ps Forums were combined, we have a bunch of Mac experts, who are also experts in Ps. Give them a bit of time, to see your post. I am also going to Edit your title, to reflect the OS, and that should trigger those Mac-users to rush in to help.
    Unless you have a deadline, give them a bit of time, to sort this issue out - I hate to have to redo my Images, if not totally necessary.
    Good luck,
    Hunt

  • Could not complete your request because of a program error photoshop cs4

    My first frustration right now is that I can't search the forums... anyone got an answer to that? on the right hand side (if I'm logged in) I type in a search for anything and it always shows no search results found! Why? is the search function not working?
    Anyway, my problem is that when I try to save a multi-layered psd file into psd or jpg I get this error message: "Could not complete your request because of a program error."
    What is causing it?
    I checked for updates and PS is up-to-date. I restarted, and it worked great for about 3 saves (different pictures). (I'm basically running through some shots and just doing a quick levels and curves adjustment and running an action putting in my name watermark.)
    After that quick edit and trying to save - same error message again.
    It started suddenly yesterday - after having used PS for about 1.5 years without a problem. I haven't done any changes to it as far as I'm aware.
    Any one seen this before, or have a solution to this?
    Thanks!
    Computer specs:
    Windows 7 Pro - 64-bit
    12 GB Ram
    750 GB OS hdd where PS is installed
    2 TB Media drive where the files are being pulled up from/saved to.
    Intel i7 x980 3.33 GHz
    GeForce GTX 470 with 1280 MB dedicated memory
    Logged in as administrator.

    Did you update or change or plug-in or remove anything else on your computer just before it happened?  Photoshop relies on other system libraries to do things and maybe one of those changed.
    No, I did not change anything; I was editing pictures - from a quadding trip where they asked me to shoot for them - and suddenly I started getting the message on most pictures.
    Hard drives are not nearly full. (.99 TB free on media drive and 588 GB free on OS {C} Drive)
    scandisk error check? I probably need that.. (I've had some problems with BSOD and had the BIOS corrupted recently that I had to flash the BIOS again. Could that cause something like this?)
    How do you reset preferences? Is it the Ctrl + Shift + Alt key immediately after PS starts? I did that and it didn't fix it.
    Saving in odd location? No, I don't think so; I save to the same place I save other stuff and I have a solid directory base and I always follow the same procedures. I save back into the same folder I open the file from and save back to the same filename + "edit". That way I can compare side by side and have a backup copy of the file.
    The only USB device plugged into the computer is a logitech wireless combo of keyboard and mouse. (And a wired USB keyboard that sits to the side and that I use only when the batteries in my wireless dies.
    I can't think of anything that has changed that would cause PS to act like this.
    If I can't get it working soon, I'll re-install. I have the Production Premium CS4 version - can I just reinstall PS or would I have to do the whole suite?
    Thanks!
    PS. I don't know if I was clear enough on what I'm doing: I open anywhere from 1 - 20 pictures at once, and then do a quick level or curve adjustment and save to a different file name. The confusing thing is - some pictures I have no problem with, but others - even though I do exactly the same thing - this error message comes up. I'd say about half of my 107 pictures from the quadding trip refused to save.
    It almost makes it seem like some pictures are corrupt or something - and yet, I'd be really surprised to have soo many corrupted images suddenly.
