Hello.
Lately i've had an issue with my after effect. Immediately after lauching the software, i get a message error saying "After effects error : File couldn't be opened for writting : "C:...\Adobe after Effects 22.2 Prefs-Indeprender.txt". (3;;0)"

I did try to change in "paramaters/Security" the accessibility for ritting of the folders (and others that ere concenred by the same problem", but everyting seems in check.

I've tried erasing the folders, but as soon as I do smth on AE, they reapear, still faulty.
I tired desinstalling/reinstalling the software from adobe creative cloud app, even in differents versions, erasing the preferences, but the probleme still persists.
This is problematic since it seems to prevent the functionning of a render plugin/script (gifGun) I absolutly need to work.
I can not recall any modification of parameters change I might have done to provoc that type of problem.
This seems to concern every .txt folders on the media cache. Nor erasing or displacing them seems to change a thing.

Let me know if anyone had this probleme before, knwo where it could come from or a way to prevent this.

I also had that error, in my case what solved it was to delete in the folder "Media Core".

 

C:\ProgramFiles\Adobe\"Plug-ins\<version>

 

then delete the Media Core folder.
then start the installer in Administrative mode and install it outside the default adobe folder (precisely in program files).

Finally start the program by pressing CTRL + ALT + SHIFT, delete the preferences and you are done.
The program starts normally.

Clearly in my case, it may or may not work for you, try it.
