I cannot open files -- whether my own edited or from another source

Every time I go to open a file from the documents I edited in Photoshop Elements 10, this error message shows up:
What in the world is going on here? I also cannot open up PDF links -- another error message comes up. I originally started a similar discussion in the Photoshop Elements forum but was directed to the Acrobat forum because it seems this is more of an Acrobat issue. How can this be fixed? P.S. I did not try to attach this file in the image below to an e-mail or anything like that. I cannot open it in the documents files and can only open it in the Elements Organizer or Editor.

OK, if you are double clicking a psd file and Acrobat launches to open it, than your system Open With association has gotten mixed up.
The normal fix would be to Right click a PSD and from the shell options choose Open With...Don't select Photoshop yet,
From the next dialog, toggle to radio button Always Use The Selected Program... and select or Browse to Photoshop

  • Cannot open files,

    I cannot open files, whether jpeg, raw or tiff. I have a PC (notebook). PS10 has stopped opening files. I was in the middle of doing a panorama when it froze, and since then it will not open anything

    Hi Goldfinchabc, and a warm welcome to the forums!
    Could be many things, we should start with this...
    "Try Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Tiger Install disc that came with your computer, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    *Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.*
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.
    5. Select your Mac OS X volume.
    6. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)
    If for some reason you can't find your Install Discs, at least try from the Safe Boot onward.

  • CS5 InDesign cannot open files in the InDesign CS5 document format

    I'll be working in InDesign CS5 with no problems then at some point I'll double click on an InDesign file and a window comes up and says - InDesign cannot open files in the InDesign CS5 document format. Sometimes when this happens I have to completely reboot my whole system before I can get InDesign to function correctly. Is this a flaw with CS5? Did not happen with previous versions. It doesn't always happen but I can't figure out what causes it. Would appreciate anyones help. I'm getting to really HATE InDesign!!

    I have not uninstalled and reinstalled, but I did just switch over to another workstation using Time Machine. The previous system was Leopard. This one is running Snow Leopard.
    I'm not sure how to parse this. When you say "switch over to another workstaiton using Time Machine" do you mean, "started using another machine that happens to be using Time Machine for backups and is also running 10.6 instead of 10.5"?
    Or do you mean, "Used the Time Machine program to upgrade from 10.5 to 10.6?" If you mean the second one, well, I can't say I am surprised that things are messed up. And that would make your problem rather different than the other posters, which is good reason for you to have started your own thread (and thus your own solution)....
    I'm a little bit leary of getting in and changing things in Terminal, without understanding what I am changing. Plus this is a workstation at work, so if I screw something up, that is not a good things, and I don't have time to spend a day fixing things back up again, with the way our workload is.
    Well, you can find a lot of marginal documentation about lsregister and Launch Services, but I wonder whether your understood the ramifications of messing with Time Machine (or maybe I have misinterpretted you!). I'd be surprised if you found another way to fix this, other than uninstall/reinstall.
    Good luck.

  • A networking error has occurred: Cannot open file (-3001)

    When I attempt to use Software Update I get the following message: "A networking error has occurred: Cannot open file (-3001)"
    I am connected to the Internet, can connect with iDisk no problem. Manual downloading also works.
    Any ideas? Do I trash a corrupted file or what?
    Many thanks in advance.
    Message was edited by: [email protected]

    I troubleshot this problem with a helpful Apple tech person who provided a workaround:
    Establish a second identity. After you log out of your own identity and into the second identity, you can successfully use software update. He had me trash a number of items deep within the system but nothing else worked. I also ran the Utilities program both off the system and the 10.5 disk with no effect.
    So far then, the only solution appears to be the second identity route or to manually download and apply updates. Quite a mystery I'd say!
    Any ideas out there?

  • IMovie for Mac: "iMovie cannot open files in the "iMovie for iOS Project" format."

    Question, asked professionally
    When will iMovie for Mac be able to open iMovie for iOS projects?
    Question, asked snarkily
    Any reasonable expectation that we will ever be able to edit projects--created in iMovie on our fancy new expensive phones--in iMovie on our fancy new expensive laptops?
    iPhone 6 Plus (contract-free, 128 GB)
    iOS 8.1.2
    iMovie for IOS 2.1.1

    Error Messages
    iMovie for Mac: "iMovie cannot open files in the "iMovie for iOS Project" format."
    iMovie for iOS: "An error occurred during export."
    Manufacturer: Apple (a multibillion dollar company)
    The year: 2015
    Hours lost: Three Weeks
    Total costs for both devices: $4,000
    Background Details
    I just wasted thousands of dollars on these two hardware devices by making the rookie mistake of assuming projects were compatible across iMovie applications. However, the exported .iMovieMobile project files are in an incompatible iMovie for iOS Project format that iMovie for Mac cannot import. So I am stuck with a 15 GB .iMovieMobile project file--for an hour-long+ video--that I created and I was editing on my iPhone for weeks that I can no longer edit on my iPhone due to an error, nor potentially rescue the lost hours on my Mac, the sole reason I purchased it one day ago. The reason I can no longer edit the project on the iPhone is because iMovie for iOS suddenly stopped displaying the video of the project in preview, external display, etc. The clip snapshots remain visible and the audio remains audible, but the video appears fully black. Any attempt to export the video at any resolution generates an error message. (This error applies only to this project; other projects export without issue.) I can save to and from iTunes or iCloud without issue, but import into iMovie for Mac is unavailable for this latest version. Deleting and reinstalling the app does not resolve the issue. Nothing has resolved this issue; so I purchased the Mac as a last attempt, and it appears that I will have to begin the meticulously painful process of recreating the video from scratch with all the titling, sound effects, precise edits, transitions, organization, etc. This video was to surprise my mother for her birthday with "this is your life" footage, including my late father. It may seem like a small first-world problem, but such things carry big emotional impacts. What began as such a wonderfully intuitive and joyful experience has descended into a soul-suffering nightmare of catastrophic proportions. This software grinch stole christmas.
    Likely Suspect
    I believe this originated from Apple's confusingly designed iTunes client that removed videos used by iMovie for IOS during a sync, which I successfully restored back to the iPhone. This apparently resulted in iOS seeking and then claiming to find all of the videos, but somehow a bug in the coding causes the audio to play but not display video, and no way to resolve the bug from an enduser standpoint. I was hoping that iMovie for Mac would allow me a workaround, but I'll never know because the iOS and Mac formats are currently and dishearteningly incompatible.
    I never performed a full backup of the iPhone, but I don't believe any of the iCloud nor local backups actually backup iMovie projects themselves anyway. (That's a fail.) So one must back them up manually to iTunes or iCloud.
    Hope Apple fixes this problem soon? Perhaps.
    Return the Mac to Apple, if they allow? Perhaps.
    Someone in this community will provide a magical workaround--that I haven't already attempted? Perhaps.
    As unlikely these options may be, I shudder to imagine that I may be forced to suffer no resolution and $3,000+ completely down the drain, because if iMovie for IOS worked as intended, I wouldn't have ever purchased the Mac as a last ditch effort to rescue the project. It meant that much to me to surprise my mother by attempting to retrieve this project file from oblivion--but to no avail.

    I appreciate you taking the time to copy and paste boilerplate responses to increase your points in this forum, but I've already read all those support articles in depth; but you have barely read my post at all. Please don't guess a fix. Only someone with the latest versions of iMovie, iOS, iPhone, Yosemite, and MacBook Pro is qualified to troubleshoot this, because anyone would immediately see that the following option no longer exists:
    Open iMovie on your Mac, and choose File > Import > iMovie for iOS Project.
    Read my post before you reply: It clearly says in the title and within my post that I can neither export nor import through iTunes without receiving an error message. So your response neither solved my question nor helped me whatsoever.

  • In CS4, "Cannot open file" "Please upgrade your plug-ins..."

    I am using InDesign CS4 on a PC. I am trying to open an .indd file created by our marketing department. I don't know what version of InDesign they use nor whether they work on Macs or PCs.
    When I double-click to open the file, I get a "Cannot Open File" popup box. The box reads "Cannot open docname.indd. Please upgrade your plug-ins to their latest versions, or upgrade to the latest version of Adobe InDesign." It then lists 18 different plugins:
    .... and 13 more.
    When I go to Help > Configure Plug-Ins, I can see that I do have all of these plug-ins. But apparently they are not the latest versions.
    Anyone know how I can update these plugins? I have searched for them on the Adobe website, but no joy.
    Thanks in advance.

    It's a safe bet that they are working in CS5. The only way to get those plugins is to install CS5 on your machine.
    You could ask your marketing department to export an IDML file from CS5, which you can open up in CS4, but it might fail horribly (and it's guaranteed to lay out incorrectly if they've used any tools in CS5 that aren't in CS4). If you rely on this workflow, by regularly using a document going back and forth between CS5 and CS4, chances are very, very good that it will fail at a critical moment. The only really safe thing to do here is to get everyone using the same version of InDesign.

  • Cannot Open File error - tried what I know

    I have received the dreaded Cannot Open File error. Usually I can manage to recover the file by deleting the lock file or recovering from a backup. This time, nothing is working.
    I've searched the forum, and while many people have this issue I cannot find a solution.
    Any suggestions?

    Have you checked this article for steps to recover a project from Cache. (Adobe Captivate Cache Projects folder from My Documents)
    For Future, make sure you have the option to create project Backup on save automatically at the same location where your project is saved. (Edit--Preferences--General-- Generate Project backup)

    with cheers

    Did you copy the .OLB file(s) to your LINUX server also? If not, you will need to copy them as well as your forms 'Inherit' the shared objects from the .olb's so they have to be present in the FORMS_PATH on the server when you compile your .fmb's. If you did copy them, first make sure they were copied via Binary Mode and if so, then I would refer you back to Grant's post and suggest you make sure the files were copied via 'Binary' mode to the LINUX server. Rather than Copy and Paste the files, you may want to FTP from a command prompt or a FTP Program so you can ensure the files are moved to the LINUX server in Binary mode.

  • FRM-10043:   Cannot open file

    Hi All!
    When I open a form then it is giving this error, while it is already a *.FMB file.
    Now, what should I do?

    Cause:     You tried to open a file that is not a valid Form Builder design module file.
    Action:      Open a form (.FMB), menu (.MMB), or library (.PLL) module.

  • Why do I get Error FIL-080101: Cannot open file

    Most likely a user error, once again :(. I am using DS
    This question is also posted in BoB [http://www.forumtopics.com/busobj/viewtopic.php?p=767673#767673].
    I have created a ERP SAP datastore and imported one function, which is a simple BAPI. It takes 3 simple char parameters and returns a BAPIRET2 table.
    I have a dataflow which contains:
    - An Excel source file with the input parameters
    - A query using the BAPI
    - A flat target file to contain the result
    I have checked the following:
    - wiki [https://wiki.sdn.sap.com:443/wiki/display/BOBJ/SharedDirectoryaccess]
       --> I checked my Services logon properties for Data Services. The logon is set to the Administrator and not to local
    - SAP Note 1388857 (Error: "Cannot open file <<path to pcache area and file name>>. Please check its path and permissions." - Data Services XI 3.2 (12.2))
      --> I have no problem executing other jobs and reading the files. I only have the issue that when using the ABAP data flow
    It is not clear to me which users is trying to access the files. The SAP user? The Job Server? If the job server, I don't understand why it has issues in this particular job when all others are fine.
    Help appreciated.

  • I recovered my ipad but i cannot open it with my own passcode,pls. help

    i recovered my ipad but i cannot open it with my own passcode,pls. help

    You may have to do the recovery function more than once.
    iOS: Device disabled after entering wrong passcode
    How can I unlock my iPad if I forgot the passcode?
    How to Reset a Forgotten Password for an iOS Device
    Using iPhone/iPad Recovery Mode
    Saw this solution on another post about an iPad in a school enviroment. Might work on your iPad so you won't lose everything.
    ‘iPad is disabled’ fix without resetting using iTunes
    Today I met my match with an iPad that had a passcode entered too many times, resulting in it displaying the message ‘iPad is disabled – Connect to iTunes’. This was a student iPad and since they use Notability for most of their work there was a chance that her files were not all backed up to the cloud. I really wanted to just re-activate the iPad instead of totally resetting it back to our default image.
    I reached out to my PLN on Twitter and had some help from a few people through retweets and a couple of clarification tweets. I love that so many are willing to help out so quickly. Through this I also learned that I look like Lt. Riker from Star Trek (thanks @FillineMachine).
    Through some trial and error (and a little sheer luck), I was able to reactivate the iPad without loosing any data. Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:
    1. Configurator is useless in reactivating a locked iPad. You will only be able to completely reformat the iPad using Configurator. If that’s ok with you, go for it – otherwise don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
    2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
    3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
    4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
    5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
    6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
    7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
    8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just cancelling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
    If done correctly, you will experience no data loss and the result will be a reactivated iPad. I have now tried this with about 5 iPads that were locked identically by students and each time it worked like a charm.
    Try it and good luck. You have nothing more to lose if it doesn't work for you.
     Cheers, Tom

    Canon 1DX support was added to ACR in version 6.7, 7.1.  An updated CS6 should be at level ACR 8.6.  If your ACR is not at level 8.6 try using CS6 menu Help>Updates.  If that does not install ACR 8.6 try downloading the ACR and DNG 8.6 converter and see if ACR 8.6 will install into your CS6.
