Adobe Dreamweaver Fix Illustrator Photoshop

The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error [CANT]

The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error [CANT]

Recently since switching my PC to Microsoft Windows 8 I’ve been having a really annoying Issue with nearly all of the Adobe applications.

The problem occurred when I was trying to save something for the web with adobe illustrator (or dragging and dropping Illustrator vectors to Photoshop).

This was the error:

The operation cannot complete  because of an unknown error [CANT]

After searching around and being told to try install this, try install that, I have finally come upon a fix, a really easy, simple fix that should never be needed. Some users on Windows 7 are also having these issues (can’t comment personally though).

Here is the simple fix: Run Adobe Applications as Administrator.

You can right click on the .exe file or shortcut and select “Compatibility” and then at the bottom of the screen there is Privilege Level, Simply tick “Run this program as an administrator”.

I highly suggest doing this for all of your Adobe Applications such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, InDesign and more!

Fix for the most common Photoshop Errors

Have you had problems loading Adobe Photoshop CS4?

Opens the loading screen and then just crashes?

Maybe you’ve installed a bad brush or pattern or fx?

The quickest and easiest way to get yourself back up and running again with Photoshop is by resetting the Settings File.

For PC Users Simply hold down CTRL+SHIFT+ALT and whilst holding down open Photoshop.

For Evil Mac Users Simply hold down SHIFT+COMMAND+OPTION and whilst holding these down open Photoshop.

Photoshop will then ask you if you’d like to delete your Settings file, obviously click yes!

Job done! Remember reinstalling/repairing photoshop will NOT clear your settings file so try this first 🙂
