Hi all…
Since migrating to a new Macbook Pro (and Monterey 12.2.1), AE stops launch at initializing the Mediacore with a “you don’t have write access to this folder” message. I can click “OK” and AE continues to launch and function normally. 
 
I’m aware Apple has changed permissions for anything in a system folder (like “Library”), but so far nothing I’ve tried allows for write access to this folder.
 
Surely others have encountered this before. Any solutions?

Hi Rob,

 

Thanks for writing in.

Please try changing the permissions as instructed in the following article: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/x-productkb/multi/preferences-folder-read-only-error.html

Hi Nishu-

Tried setting the privileges manually, and even though the Mac shows I have read-write permissions, After Effects still doesn’t recognize that.

Also have set the mac to “reduced security settings”. ub still no go.

This issue appeared after I migrated from one M1 laptop to this one.

(I also tried manually creating a new mediacore folder and copying the old contents to it (which required a password, despite changing permissions). No difference in performance, I still get stuck.

Thanks for your help, still searching for a solution.

Thanks, Rob
