When I try to open Audition from the Creative Cloud ap it says "Audition cannot access the preference folder. Please make sure current user has the read/write permission to the preference folder".

It is the latest ver 11.

I've done the following

1. Checked preferences. I'm there with read/write permissions.

2. Uninstall/reinstall - did it.

3. Opened a few other apps from the Creative Cloud...no problem. Just seems to be with Audition.

4. I am on a Mac.

Of course I was at the start of a recording session which I've had to cancel. This is costing me money. Not good Adobe.

The solution for me was actually quite simple...

 

  1. Go to your 'Preferences Folder' - The Preferences Folder can be accessed by going to the 'Go' menu while using the Finder, selecting 'Go To Folder' and then entering the command  ~/Library/Preferences
  2. Find the folder named 'Adobe' and open it
  3. Delete the folder named 'Audition'
  4. Try opening Audition again and it should work
  5.  

It's actually funny because although it was telling me it can't access the Preferences Folder, it had quite clearly accessed it and created a folder for Audition. Anyway, once deleted everything worked fine.

 

Hope this helps others too!
